catastrophe: Its called a Barn Jam. its what it is. and the 90s called, they want their internet language critic back.
Eddie is the best in the world!! Hail Eddie!
Yolatengo: I picture you as the "comic book guy" from The Simpsons. Sitting in your mothers dark basement taking out your own frustrations and insecurity's on the world while all the while safe behind your glowing box. Are you one of the bands who didn't get to play? How can you sit in such heavy judgment of a man or a place and know so little about it?
I took the time to review some of your other comments to articles ranging from restaurant reviews to news of the president. You are an angry dude who seems to have ample time and very little direction or information.
AG was started purely with artists in mind. Eddie wanted to make a place where artists can come hang out, play in front of an audience who truly want to hear them, network with other members of their bohemian community, record an album and have a place to crash while on tour. To say that AG or Eddie is Pimping artists is Idiotic. Anyone who has been near here would know that. We dont normally pay artists, this is true... Why? Because WE DONT GET PAID EITHER. Every Wed. we host a free show just so artists have a place to play and just so everyone else can have a place to listen to music. Food is provided by a local restaurant(Sewee Restaurant), totally independent from AG. and you know what? Everyone LOVES it. The artists can play, increase their fan base(the audience comes for the music and atmosphere... regardless of whos playing), sell merch, meet other artists and venue managers and get more gigs (paying gigs from the venues who have a beer and liqueur license). We dont ask artists to play here. They ask us. Were consistently booked 3 months in advance for our Barn Jams. When were able to pay bands from special events we throw we do. If there is any profit to be had Eddie immediately passes it on to the community, be it the artists or a charity he is close with) I have seen Eddie come out of pocket to ensure bands had gas and food if their merch sales were down. I have seen Eddie come out of pocket to ensure the charity got a good donation even if the event he threw didnt make it to the black.
I invite you to come and experience this different approach to a musical community. This aint LA or NY... thats the point. Eddie will be the gentleman who will greet you with a smile and a beer, welcoming you to our bohemian creation regardless of your race, beliefs, genre preference, or online ego.
