Re: “A run-in with Van Morrison

Peter G, you are full of shit. I was at this show. Had hitchhiked down from New Hampshire after catching two great Van shows in Boston on October 16th; 39 years ago, today. The first number on November 2nd, for the second show (he did TWO shows per night on this tour ~ a dubious decision since he hadn't toured in four+ years), was MOONDANCE. He dumped the mic over during the 8th number, "Natalia", which was well over 15-minutes into the show; more like 40-45 minutes. To his credit, Bobby Tench took over the lead vocals and the band finished the song. Expecting Van to return to the stage, the band went into Sonny Boy Williamson's "Help Me" (appropriately enough), which without vocals sounded remarkably just like "Green Onions". When the band realized Van would not be returning, they cut that number short. The stage lights went out. The band hustled off stage. End of show. A handful of goons jumped up on stage, and the PA announced Van had wanted to come back for two encores, but he was sick. Encores? How about just finishing the set, which had another eight numbers left in it! Man, was I pissed. Pissed off all the way to Penn Station. Pissed when my train rolled into South Station the next morning. Still pissed now. But Peter are full of shit, pal.

Re: “VIDEO PREMIERE: Cuzco Releases New Video Exclusively at 'CL' Vibes

Hi, guys - Your dad was able to hook me up live and it sounded great. Wish I could have played it through the iPad so it was bigger, or better yet had been therein person. If I had known he was going I would have had him pick me up. Love you, grandma.

Re: “Scowl Brow Singer Robby Hale Burns Cross, Posts Pic to Facebook

I'm really disappointed in Creative Loafing for printing this article. I guess with what was going on in Charlottesville at the time you needed to get something out quick to remain relevant and trendy. Truth is Robby is a good guy. He just likes to go against the grain so to speak and push buttons to get a rise. He would give you the last dollar out of his pocket to make sure you got home safe after a night of drinking no matter what color/sex you are. Bringing up a picture that is almost 2 years old without knowing the facts - ambulance chasing journalism at its finest. I guess everyone that has called him out and talked bad has a squeaky clean past and has never said or done anything they regret.

Re: “Listen Up: Special Edition of 'Local Vibes' Discusses Bigotry and Inclusivity in CLT Music Scene

It's amazing how some of these folks on here are blaming the current administration for the problems we are having now. Last year under the former administration BLM was marching in the streets chanting "What do we want? Dead Cops". What did we get last year? A whole bunch of police officers assasinated in cold blood, hate crimes. What did Obama do? Well he invited BLM to the White House! Obama inviting people to the White House who called for the death of police is way worse than a drunk guy having fun with a burning pallet made into a cross and making a stupid Facebook comment. But I'm sure no one on this panel see it that way because the media treats Obama like he walks on water when he's really more like a slithering snake. All over social media these days you see "I wish all white people would die" etc etc. I seriously doubt any of the SJW's on this podcast make a big deal out of comments like that when they see them because it doesn't fit their agenda. An agenda brought to you by Elites who are purposefully trying to separate us. The person who brought the Facebook photo to light after 2 years wanted to spread hate against someone he hated, plain and simple. Especially after the tragedy that happened in Charlottesville, that was a super lame move and even more lame of CL to publish it at the time they did. Some of y'all are pointing out the splinter in Robby's eye and don't see the 2x4 in your own.

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

I don't think we should be personally attacking Mike here. It is easy for church to be a routine that means nothing, It's good to think about what you're doing and what it means to you. Christian lyrics can be insincere and forced; It's easy to tell the difference between something inspired and something that isn't. When you've been told how to think for so long It's easy to walk off and try something else that might be the complete opposite. But that doesn't mean that you can't come back to the pure desire of wanting to feel God's presence again and realize your life hasn't taken you anywhere better. There is nothing wrong with questioning. I know I have no one to judge.

Re: “Oddboy Collective Brings Another Month of DIY Variety

You are right, Greenman: The wording in that paragraph was misleading. Our print issue street date is Thursday, so I was writing this piece to push to next week's Oddboy event and the subsequent weeks' events. But I should not make reference to "last week" in a paper whose issues straddle two different weeks. I regret the error and have clarified the wording now. Apologies to you and any others who read it and were confused. Thank you for pointing it out.

Re: “Oddboy Collective Brings Another Month of DIY Variety

There are only four Wednesdays in in September, so how could there already have been a residency show last week? The whole first half of the description of when the shows are happening is totally wrong. Pretty regrettable error.

You seem offended. Maybe you will just label me a 'racist nazi' because I'm not in line with your judging left. If your a stand up person Robby will have your back no matter your skin color.

This guy has been a bigot and a bully around town for years. No one took a public stand against him or his clique of bro-nazi rednecks. As a community we can't continue to give these fuckheads a pass. He's not the only one in the scene who proudly uses the N word. Don't believe his bullshit cop-out "some of my best friends are black."

Re: “Elenora Fagan balances life between rock and rap

Hi MusicMike,
Thanks for writing and asking. We reached out to Elenora Fagan bassist Juan Ossa, who informed us, "Elenora was dissolved a while ago. We got to record an album and everyone kind of started drifting apart. Two of the guys had kids and stuff, so that had something to do with it. My career as photographer/filmmaker started picking up as well, so I had to choose. Our guitar player still plays as a solo artist and sometimes as a session player. He goes by the name Von Hunter."

You can find Elenora Fagan's self-titled album of 2011 on iTunes at this link:…

And follow Von Hunter (who's now doing acoustic funk, rock, reggae and soul) at his Facebook page:

Whatever happened to these guys? Found them on spotify, and wow is all I can say. They have a very raw sound, could be big.

Re: “Remembering Stevie Ray Vaughan - 20 years later

I was, also, at the 7/7/90 concert in Holmdel. I was lucky enough to first sit in the lighting booth with Eddie, the lighting guy, and his girl Laura, who was my friend. I was also on his bus that afternoon and got to meet him as I was exiting his bus. Then, after he was finished playing, Eddie, Laura and I walked across the stage to sit stage right for Joe...I just sat down on the black stage luggages when the bandshell fell! I had just walked under it! The concert went on but SRV was freaking backstage! About halfway through Joe's stint, SRV came over to Eddie, Laura and me to discuss the damage with Eddie. He had calmed down by then and stayed with us until Joe was finished......memory of a lifetime!
