Unfortunately Debonzo Brothers were mistakenly booked for this show and Gospel Years will be gracing the stage in their stead. It will be a fun and exciting evening at Slim's in any case for a Frist Friday, and catch Debonzo Brothers August 11th at The Pour House supporting Will Hoge.
It's amazing how this point is a complete lie. Out of context? Have you read this speech? Her words on the topic of this particular speech, "my Latina identity, where it came from, and the influence I perceive it has on my presence on the bench." The entire speech embellishes the "wise Latina" thesis. I guess the oath to take the bench doesn't matter anymore, is just a tradition.
"I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as [TITLE] under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God."
Forgoing Grayson's intentions, the review noticeably and absolutely focuses on BJ's character rather than thorough critiques of the music. The band's rapidly growing popularity in the Triangle deserves to be mentioned, and would serve both reader and writer in providing balance and legitimacy. It's taken for granted that many of us personally know those making music locally, as musicians and or fans within the scene. I think the focus on BJ alone is awfully self indulgent and alienates readers that do not follow area music so closely. I see the album falls short of expectations in Grayson's eyes, which is a perfectly fine "construct" for a review. But the review reads more scornfully towards BJ than of informed opinion. I'm very proud of the band and their new album. I'd also take the chance to mention the consistently obvious bias that exists in the music writing between Raleigh bands and those along 15-501.
I'll probably just go to my job so I can do my part in paying for the inauguration for which FEMA natural disaster funds had to be appropriated.
Are there any more at Bull City? I wanna come by and get one.
