Re: “In a summer music series battle, Cincinnati beats Charlotte

I work with the organizers of Alive After Five. I agree with your points and I would love to have an indie festival, there is A LOT that goes into making it free though. Also, in AA5's defense, we/they have never tried to be anything but an after work free event to listen to music. We have purposely tried to appeal to a wide range of people and not make it a specific kind of music series. The music is just a nice back drop for a lot of folks... and we are cool with that. When you talk about specific bands, you are targeting a specific fan base and that makes it tough to get a wide range of folks out to your event. It's too bad Centercity Fest went by the wayside, it was a great festival with several different kinds of bands. It takes a lot of dough to put an event like that on and sponsorship dollars are the driving factor. I applaud the Blackstock Music festival, the organizer for that event is using private funds to put on an amazing event, I hope people support it. That could be an event like you are talking bout right in our backyard every year, if it's supported.
