Re: “Is It a Good Idea to Call a Country and Southern-Rock Concert a Carolina Uprising?

Charlie Daniels was born in Wilmington, N.C., in 1936; Bruce Springsteen was born in Long Branch, N.J., 1949. Both are true Americans, speaking their minds, in the great American tradition.

So if the headliner of Carolina Uprising was Bruce Springsteen espousing his ultra liberal bullshit, the writer would be orgasmic. But since it's Charlie Daniels, a true American, she has to make it some sort of political crime.

Re: “Is It a Good Idea to Call a Country and Southern-Rock Concert a Carolina Uprising?

Meh - while I think the whole Rebel Flag thing, "heritage not hate" stuff IS a bunch of crap, but I think you are really reaching to be offended here. There's plenty of REAL stuff our idiot President and his minions say and do daily. I don't care about the politics of members of my sports teams, or bands I enjoy. If you let political ideology get in the way of enjoyment of art, then you are missing out. Having said that, this concert is not on my list of things to attend, but that's because I'm tired of "Southern Rock"

Re: “Is It a Good Idea to Call a Country and Southern-Rock Concert a Carolina Uprising?

Charlie Daniels is a conservative not an extreme right winger and the name Southern Uprising is no different than the message in "The Souths Gonna Do it Again" He's not trying to start a war he's just proud of his southern heritage, what's wrong with that? Quit trying to politicize this concert, if you don't like it don't go, simple as that!

Charlie Daniels's extreme right-wing views are not news to most people. Nor is his persistent dismissal of self-examination of those views. Even so, how did you miss his comparing legal abortion to Auschwitz?! https://www.google.com/search?q=charlie+da… Or

"One Fine Morning" was the first time I got choked up, but not the last. Great opening set, too.

Maybe you're reading into the name just a little too much. It's just a dumb name, like Carolina Rebellion which takes place near Charlotte.

Re: “Cry of Love vocalist Kelly Holland died depressed, but not alone

I met Kelly and Audley once at a small venue in Portland Oregon at a Cheap Trick Concert in 1993 or 1994. I cannot remember. They were the opening band and totally captivated the crowd. They both came to the bar area of the venue after playing. We shared some beers together and I knew that there was something terribly wrong with Kelly, but god damn could he make you smile, laugh, and you knew that if you were buddies with him it would be a wild ride. He was that Charismatic! Audley was the opposite. Calm cool and very humble. We watched Cheap Trick and they both watched with me as fans of the band. It was a good night. I'll never forget Kelly! RIP

Re: “Batalá Durham's Central Park Standoff with Liberty Warehouse Residents Is Gentrification in Motion

If the noise level by the apartment complex is under 60 decibels, what is the problem? Also if police do not follow the law why aren't they locked up since they are citizens also. At least fine them, the police that is. LOL!!

Re: “Guitar Center Is Leaving Durham. Here’s What That Means for Indie Music Stores

Can't help but marvel how Indy can take an article about a big box store moving 15 miles and turn it into a political diatribe.

Re: “The State Fair's Musical Headliners Are Here—Country Rock, An Eagles Tribute, and...Marcy Playground?

Marcy Playground still sells out shows. They've been touring and putting out material for over 20 years. It seems to me the lackluster element here is your knowledge of music.

Re: “Following Accusations of Rampant Misogyny and More, a Raleigh Promoter's Career Is Effectively Over. What Comes Next?

Having emotional or substance abuse issues is never an excuse to treat other people poorly due to their gender, sexual orientation or race. His victims deserve compassion first.

I'd like to see his posts about Southeast Raleigh gentrification ,as its where I'm from.

Re: “Following Accusations of Rampant Misogyny and More, a Raleigh Promoter's Career Is Effectively Over. What Comes Next?

I don't think that was the main point of the article. It seems the main point was that Craig's treatment of women and local musicians is horrible. People got fed up with it. Did you read the Facebook post that spurred this entire incident? I don't think anyone is down playing race here, it just wasn't the main point of the article or the Facebook post.

I have never heard him speak negatively about people of color, but I have hear him on many occasions make disparaging remarks regarding women and local music. I'm not saying he never has, but I have never heard it. Craig is not a major player in music and most definitely not in real estate or downtown business. I know LOTS of bands that have refused to play LBLB or use his booking services long before this article came out. People have known for a long time who Craig is and the shit he pulls. Race is a sensitive and very important issue right now given what we have in the White House. We are all in this together now matter what color your skin is, no matter where you are from, no matter your sexuality and or anything else.

Re: “Cry of Love vocalist Kelly Holland died depressed, but not alone

I first heard "Peace Pipe" as a new release while in Utah. I was intrigued at how good the music was and by the fact that the band was from my native North Carolina. However, as time went on I never heard of or from them again. For the longest time I was never sure if "Peace Pipe" was the name of the band, the song or both - the announcer did not elaborate the first & only time I heard it. Now that I've retired from the Army I have had time to research more and finally find the song on YouTube... and this article. Man, what a shameful waste - Bob Davis & Chuck Harrell couldn't have said or clarified it better! I would have loved to find a treasure trove of more music by Kelly Holland & the band, but I'll have to content myself with "Brother" and "Diamonds & Debris" wherever I can find them. FWIW, RIP Kelly - from a fellow sufferer of extreme depression. It hurts whenever I see others lose such a fight - fellow veterans, friends & relatives or favorite musicians notwithstanding. I just hope the peace he found afterward was worth it for him - in spite of the pain those who love him are still feeling over his loss. It just goes to show how special the guy was to those who knew him...

Re: “Following Accusations of Rampant Misogyny and More, a Raleigh Promoter's Career Is Effectively Over. What Comes Next?

Okay, lets stop right here in this quote from an Indyweek article exposing a very well connected man who was operating in Downtown Raleighs arts, culture and music scene. Reed was also the Director of Events with the Downtown Raleigh Alliance. The writer of the Indy article so quickly pointed out how misogynistic Reed was in his treatment of women, but she left out a detail that should have been included if they wanted to write an article about equal treatment of people not based on gender. Why stop there when the obvious was in the writers face. In the comments that spurred the article, he was also accused of being a gentrification sympathizer as his accuser also spoke about his views of cleaning up Southeast Raleigh without care of the trickle down housing effects he and his cool uptown friends are having on communities of color in Southeast Raleigh.



How can such a progressive news outlet leave out such a important part of the character breakdown of a man who as it seems, had so much influence on whats happening downtown in Raleigh where there are less and less outlets available for creative black expression or business?



Many of Reeds business partners cut ties after the initial Facebook post, but I wonder how that would have played out had his issue only been about his views on Southeast Raleigh and the displacement of long time Southeast Raleigh residents? Would they have even cared or would they have asked him for real estate tips?



Do better Indy!
