Re: “Live review: Identity Festival

I support the scene every day brother! I do not feel that this is an attack of any sort either nor did I say that. In fact this is the first comment of this sort I have ever really done . Anyway, I am more upset that Creative Loafing should send someone more qualified. Someone with better credentials and education should have written this article. It was a weak article at best .

Re: “Live review: Identity Festival

Unfortunately, this critic reflects the sad removal from the rest of civilization Charlotte has plunged itself into years ago by its predominantly Closed minded and radically conservative existance. The rest of the world is in love with this "genre" as he put it (actually EDM is comprised of more "genres" than all of the rest of the music genres in the world) while the radically conservative Bible belt continues to remain 10 to 20 years behind Europe and most of North America if not everywhere in the world. I have been a part of the intelligent dance music scene for almost 20 years now and granted , it is not for everyone, but we are not writing songs with lyrics about shooting my neighbor or stealing your girl. At least dance music carries a positive vibe with it and promotes community instead of hate, violence and greed as do so many "genres". Anyway, Very sad to see this area's only major publication specializing in arts an entertainment not even able to comprehend, much less appreciate one of the best shows this area has experienced ever with one of the thickest family vibes anywhere. Please Creative Loafing, the residents and inhabitants of this area can not grasp intelligent dance music due to lack of exposure to the art form and culture, at least you be educated enough to see something done well in ANY genre of art that you report on when it is in front of you . It is your job to do so. It would be the same thing as you reporting on Michael Jackson and making a comment in your report like"...and why couldn't he pick up his feet when he danced and stop grabbing himself?". Really? You decided to be an authority on entertainment and art for this community, then you owe this community the unbiased and educated reporting that it so desperately needs and deserves.. Get a CLUE! If it were not for uneducated people like this reporter in our community spreading slanted messages about something that they just don't care for personally , then maybe we to in Charlotte could experience a richer more diverse art and entertainment culture similar to what they experience in Atlanta, Washington D.C., Miami, New York, and cities all over the world. Charlotte claims to want to be an international city but is afraid to embrace the diversity that comes along with it . Your poor job of covering this event with misinformation and biased sentiment has greatly tarnished the respect for any review that Creative Loafing produces. i hope you can win my faith back over because I would love to be able to trust you guys again, however, this was so poorly handled in my opinion.
