hey 8:16pm. Give me one reason why I am a douche. I am not Doug Simmons and the Curtain Club. I try to make interesting events for overlooked artists to express themselves and audiences with more eclectic tastes to enjoy. I don't have to. I want to. I never talk shit about any band. I keep to myself and try my best not to step on anyones toes. So give me one reason why I am a douche. Maybe your just another one of those racist indie kids I keep running into as of late. All I do is work on my art and help others get their art exposed. What did I do to you? I should not even respond to this shit, but I really am quite baffled. There are plenty of bands around here that do go around talking shit and spreading evil gossip. Why don't pick on them?

figures. I have not been harrassed this much since I used to go to slipped disk and common ground almost a decade and a half ago. I actually got jumped by skinheads at a Fugazi show of all places. It was on their second tour and first time through Dallas. Back when those nazi fucks were all over Deep Ellum. It is interesting how a lot of the younger indie kids really have no idea how bad things used to be around here when the confederate hammer skins were everywhere. I doubt things will get that bad again, but I have been getting harrased a lot more this year. I actually heard some shitty redneck band talking about "those dumb niggers" at my rehearsal space just last week as I was passing their door. I made sure they saw me walk by. I blame the general conservative shift of the country that has been going on since a certain warmonger took office. I really hope things start shifting back the other direction after the midterm elections. In the meaNTIME PEOPLE NEED TO GATHER AND FOLLOW THE GREAT WORDS OF Mr Chuck D......"FIGHT THE POWER".

Fight The Power indeed. Wanz you're doing good things around town and the people that matter appreciate and realize it. People hate on me too. They're scared of Soul Brother Number One hiding under the bed telling them they need to get down and be sex machines I guess. I feel ya- we do selfless things like book all this shit and we get bored bloggers talking noise about us. Anyway- we don't have time to look back, let's keep marching on.

actually my gigs are selfish and self indulgent(kinda sarcasm). The other local promoters really don't put together shows I would like to see. So I put together shows that I would like to see. Laptop Deathmatch is a blast. If I don't make it happen it does not happen. For the most part most local promoters have very narrow tastes in music and it comes across in the booking style. That is not necessarily bad, but there should be options for people with a wider range of tastes. In this day and age of the internet and downloading there are plenty of people that dig a wider range of sstuff. Heavy shit like Slayer, pop stuff like Scott Walker and weirdo elctronic shit like Kid 606. These people need shows too.

So yeah. My gigs are very selfish(not really). I like to see good shows. So I make those shows happen. So sue me. I don't think I am alone in this sentiment.

12:20 PM

You're not alone in that sentiment, thats why I do my shows too. But no really, we're doing it for the bitches and hoes and bling Wanz! I'll see you at the bank!

I'm sure the only people that read this blog are bands and friends of bands so it's pretty clear you're just a jealous twat who's too lazy to make your band sound good cause you're on here making yourself look ridiculous.

lots o questions. Here are the answers:

1.These are not tastemaker events. They are supposed to encourage unity in the scene. To get bands that normally would not play together to play a show together. To get outside of the clicks and Politics and make a good well rounded show happen. Bills with something for everyone.
2. Believe it or not some people actually like Ashburne Glen. They are not flashy or groundbreaking. They are certainly not noisy or avant anything. Just a pretty good rock music. They are really good guys and I dug 'em. They are far from suck. If you want to see truly shit bands go to Curtain Club(I'm not naming names). You may redefine your standard of suck.
3. I was considering doing going back into booking fulltime, but I think throwing these shindigs every now and then will be far more productive and keep the events special.
4. to mr 11:12 anon. I apoligize for defending myself, buit I don't like to take shit from anyone when it is not desreved. It's funyy how according to this jerk I am some kind of asshole, but no one has actually brought up one thing that I have ever done to make me an douche outside of being frustrated. If that is all it takes to be an asshole then this city has a lot of douches.....oh yeah and your momma wears lederhosen.

I think Ashburne Glen is actually quite good compared to most of the bands from Dallas. And also, from many other places.
And Wanz, I'll name some crappy bands just because some people do need to know what the real garbage is around here:
The Feds, Drowning Pool, Mayta, Mad Mexicans, Mandatory, Pimpadelic, etc.
And that's just the obivious stuff. There's also the stuff that people try to make you think is cool. And maybe that's what Ashburne Glen is being accused of, but I think they are far from being The Hourly Radio or Blackheart Society.

man, i'm all for free speach and all that, but this phenomenon of signing on anonymously and shit talking other people/bands is completely counter-productive to having a supportive music community.

not everyone has to like each other's music, but if you don't like a certain band, why set out to destroy them? do you really have nothing better to do? go find someone you do like and support them or take up crochet or something else productive besides bitching.

and, the people who are being ill-spoken of by these anon posters are out at shows, looking over their shoulders wondering if so-and-so might be that anonymous asshole who said mean things about them on wsjr.. the reality is, they probably aren't, but you just can't be sure.

everybody's acting weird around each other out of paranoia when they probably don't need to be.

it's just fuck'd up..

these bitchy anonymous cowards are like little kids who misbehave in order to get attention. don't acknowledge their retarded behavior and they get no satisfaction out of it and the stop..

none of my posts are snooty or above it all. The elitist crap is beneath me. You asked why I booked them I told ya. I am not responsible for other peoples opinions. I want to see unity amongst DFW and an end to all of the backstabbing politics. To see bands step outside of their little circle of friends. They may not dig what they find, but they will most likely dig some of it. This town needs an enema.

I think you have a point about Ashburne Glen not being one of the bands that the Dallas establishment tries to shove down peoples throats as a "hip" band.

there are decent and terrible bands in every town... but the ones that should truly be called out are the ones that act like they're Lou Reed because they play pop punk covers of Dandy Warhol songs, or list My Bloody Valentine as an influence on their Myspace page.

NOT including the fact that you were your own special guest in the friends. Then the second night you played after your bands other band played. Man, you are really reaching.

I love how we can bash certain bands, but one guy mentions that a band is sloppy and suddenly every starts their period. scenester pricks. go do some more coke and suck each other off.

This has been an interesting scientific experiment into the brains of bored people. A blog post which had nothing whatsoever to do with the 71 (for now)comments long thread which followed it.

i gotta disagree with SR and mc last comments. criticism is fine, but much of the anonymous posters on here are just letting their inner pre-pubescent teen run rampid.

these days, there's a fine line between some blogs and actual journalism, but this is where they differ: no one can be held liable for what they say, so anyone can sling their shit anywhere.

true criticism is constructive; shit slinging based on some personal issue or whatever, is not.

by the way, i'll criticize anyone to their face. it doesn't mean i have to call them a "douche" or get up in front of a room full of people and insist everyone agree with me.
