Dear offended readers,
I apologize if I upset you with my personal opinion. An editorial is not always about objective facts; this was merely a projection of how I feel. I was suggesting that the music here does not cater to my particular taste, which is why I want to book some bands that do. For those that are satisfied with the music scene here—awesome, that’s great. If you like jam bands, or funk or whatever that’s cool by me, but it’s not what I’m in to, and I don’t see why I have to be. I can’t force you to like Passion Pit or whatever “hipster” band I happen to like—and I wouldn’t want to. While I have seen some good bands pass through, it’s not as often as I like, so I want to fix that. At first when I wrote it I decided to be as highly opinionated as possible, to get kids to read and talk about it and get impassioned about something. But it seems it was too much, and people took it very personally, which is regrettable and almost cool but not really. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and so am I as far as I know.
