Re: “Hope Nicholls on Spending Three Decades in Charotte's Music Scene and Why She Still Won't Leave

enjoyed reading the article. I feel the need to say that her store is not not a thrift store by any means. Boutique.

Hope is so awesome! It's so cool that Ryan discovered he's related to Aaron. Hope and Aaron are some of the best people ever.

Re: “Kishi Bashi and his history of violins

What an amazing review. You covered the recent history of the man behind the act in such a way that the current music creates that much more of an impact. Really contextualizes it.

Re: “Politics as usual with Steve Earle

Anyone who plays music play fucking music I love Springsteen more tha anyone see him a lot live but keep your comments to yourself and Steve Earle you was good at first now you are not good live or your songwriting is relly getting weird I guess you've run out of Vietnam material. Will all of you just stick to writing great songs and Bruce live your great but leave Trump out of it. Please do this and I've talked to hundreds of fans that agree with me it's always been about the music right.

Re: “Benefit for local artist Joe Borruso hits close to home

He played the sympathy card on my wife while she cared for him as his nurse in the hospital. He manipulated her in her vulnerablability and she cheated on me with him. Support this guys health and recover sure, but I wouldn't give him a cent!!! AND WHATEVER YOU DO DONT LEAVE YOUR WIFE ALONE WITH HIM!!!

Re: “Who is Amos Lee?

I had the privilege of seeing Amos Lee in November of 2o16 in Seattle. Its true, its not an intellectual experience, but an emotional one. There were times of laughter, pondering and I sat in my seat and literally wept during some songs. Anticipating his next visit to Seattle /Tacoma area.

Re: “Charlotte Singer-Songwriter Jason Jet Loves Pop & Soul

AYO!!!!! Ms. Kia Moore's writing here portrays Jason exactly as he is!! It's the most spot on depiction of Jason's mannerisms! I love her writing style. My college sophomore English 2 Honors teach Mrs. "I didn't like her very much" would have loved this article. 10/10

I hope Kia does more articles on Jason's highlights and career. I hope Kia could write something this flattering on quite a few other Charlotte artist (not trying to steal Jason's shine).

Write ups and coverage like this are exactly what the city needs to warm up the musical atmosphere!

Re: “Christian punks MxPx wrestle with doubt — and greatness

I started listening to MxPx in 1993 and they were my favorite band until I found Switchfoot a few years and then they were my second favorite band. From what I recall, even back then people were tearing them down and calling them sellouts and not real Christians, so it's not like they were setting themselves up as a band whose main goal was to make little punk rock disciples. They just made great punk rock that I loved and still love. I'm a very devout Christian, grew up in church, still go to church, and then and now MxPx didn't determine my faith in Christ. if anything, hearing all the talk about whether or not they were "really" Christian, while listening and moshing to their music, gave me freedom to examine my own faith, make it my own and not one based on someone else's life. Artists express themselves, if they are true artists, and don't just put up an accepted message as a front, whether it's punk rock, painting, or pottery. His personal search for truth is his own, and he has no responsibility to do more than express that honestly through his music. And make great punk rock, of course.

Re: “After 43 years, the Double Door Inn threw down for one final jam session

Nice job Ryan. My partners and I captured more than 80 hours of original footage from The Double Door Inn over the past 6 months. These performances and interviews include Bob Margolin, Tinsley Ellis, Mark Wenner of the Nighthawks, Gigi Dover, Gina Stewart of Doubting Thomas, Jim Brock, Bill Noonan, Ziad Rabie, Bill Hanna, and more. Of course we also interviewed staff, patrons, promoters and the owners, Nick and Matt Karres.

We've edited this remarkable new video content, along with vintage performance video, photos and music, into a Blu-Ray that will be available in limited numbers via Amazon in February. The title is "Live From The Double Door Inn: A Documentary." In addition to the documentary, we included some bonus footage.

Hope you'll check it out. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen.

Re: “The dirty girls behind Nashville's Birdcloud

Here I came for what seemed like a background article on one of my favorite groups, only to read your use of them as a standard for female comedy. I listen to them for their raw expression and beautifully honest absurdity. I agree that women are finding more of their own voices and, I find, are really struggling against what has always been considered "manhood"-- but I also don't feel like you "get" their music at all. And clearly that bothered me enough to write all this.

Not to mention your clear miss on the Modest Proposal parallels, sadly adding to the argument of "not getting it" while placing artists in a comedic category. If I earnestly expressed myself and you thought it was funny, I'd take your money but I'd write you off as a person.

Re: “Can Delta Rae handle the truth?

I just saw delta Rae at Riverhawk music festival this weekend and while they sang a couple Fleetwood Mac songs ( which they rocked) they mostly sang a lot of original work that was ligitimently excellent. Not sure who these reviewers are but a crowd of over 1,000 LOVED them and where in there feet dancing and applauding! Even my teenage granddaughter loved them and her favorite songs were there original work. Can't wait to see them again
