..."to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the War of Northern Aggression"... and just in time to celebrate another defeat of the same anti-government ideology (think nullification) that led this country into THAT debacle. Good bye PINOs (Patriots In Name Only). Again!
How a punk rock band should deal with winning a local award:
i am very thankful for the oppurtunity my band (shipwrecked losers) had to play the music farm. We got lucky. just cause you play a sold out show at the music farm doesnt mean anything. there are so many bands not just in charleston but everywhere that will never get recognized the way my band and SLO has. So to everyone who did or didnt vote for my band as top punk band of 2013 i wanna say thank you. Really if it wasnt for the fans bands wouldnt even exist!!!!
War nostalgia sucks. Americana kinda sucks, too.
On the other hand, this song will make you cry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUGb-6VuqGU
Those darn udsills
No, he didn't, but that isn't what the song is saying. The song is referencing Beauregard fleeing ahead of Sherman's troops. He knew Charleston was lost, and evacuated Confederate forces.
Sherman didn't take Charleston
Thanks for writing this article - Reid is a great guy, and Gone is a great album! Can't wait for the Triple Album Release Show this Saturday - the Whitt Algar All-Stars extravaganza!
Voting stated was till Oct 8 but it closed already.. Not right.. The day have not ended..
You get nominated by actual human beings going to the ballots during the nominations and physically typing in the artist you want to be voted on later on. Then the nominations are announced after people send in their ballots...this should make a lot of sense, but SLO fans don't seem to get that yet. Many of these artists have done amazing things as well, look into them. There's more going on then a sold out show at the music farm.
cause it's hip, man
Album of the Year-BE NICE BE CAREFUL by A FRAGILE TOMORROW
Rock Band of the Year-A FRAGILE TOMORROW
Guitarist of the Year-Brendan Kelly
Song of the Year-"KERNERSVILLE" by A Fragile Tomorrow
I prefer Indie.
What's funny is that the ballots themselves are voted on, a fact which fans of SLO seem to not grasp at all.
CPMAs Stop Light Observations Angry Fanbase Scale (Color-Coded)
Red: Not included on the ballot at all
Yellow: Not nominated in multiple categories
Green: Don't win every category
What happened to the category for Rock Band of the Year? And where's HeyRocco? Otherwise, happy to see a lot of my favorite musicians on the ballot!
Well, this is an interesting twist on the SLO drama this year! I can't wait to see how this one plays out!
Great! Much respect, Mr Bowers.
And just in case anyone's keeping score the first line in "Welcome..." is
The STRAIGHT life is good life....
Thank you, Brother Bowers
