Re: “Smaller music venues aren't all readily accessible to patrons with disabilities — and there's no easy fix

Going to shows is voluntary.

Hosting shows is voluntary.

Instead of asking the people who are putting on shows to accommodate a small percentage of people i would like those people to band together, first, and prove it can even be done.

I have a hard time with this. I grew up thinking punk was about personal accountability and getting up off your ass and doing something to improve your life. This left-of-center crap seems all about making demands of other people under the guise of some emotional platitude so you can cry foul at anyone who offers dissenting feedback.

I want anyone to be able to go to shows who wants to go to shows. Part of the reality of life is that it's not fair, hard and you can have to make do with less than ideal circumstances.

Just curious, how many people are in this group of disabled folks who are being carried up stairs or not making it to shows? Is it 5? 15? 100?

I would like to see the explanation as to how these thousands, or tens of thousands will be paid - and who is expected to pay it - to satisfy these whims.

There's a Henry Rollins spoken word where he talks about a fan with muscular dystrophy who basically walked to his show. I think these folks who are wrapping the punk blanket around themselves but hiding behind their disabilities should be required to listen to his story.

Re: “Critics' Picks: Nov. 6-13

Missed one: Daptone stalwarts the Budos Band bring their brand of funk, soul, and doom instrumentals in from Staten Island to play the Rex Sat. 11/8 with doom rockers Electric Citizen.

Re: “Smaller music venues aren't all readily accessible to patrons with disabilities — and there's no easy fix

Great piece Andy! Definitely an important issue to get the ball rolling on here. Elevators for wheelchairs and disabilities would be great. Also would be great to help prevent disabilities in the bands who have to carry their giant heavy amps up the steps in said venues. Aside from the fact that we're poor and often have limited health coverage for back injuries!

Re: “The Gathering Field reunites with a new album after a dozen years

I've been a GF fan since the beginning. After that have followed Bill. One year we went to see him so often my husband said he felt like a groupie! We even rode on the bike to Hartwood Acres, wound up in a thunderstorm and had an hour+ ride home in the rain. Keep up the good work! It's hard to find songwriters today that actually write lyrics!

Re: “The Gathering Field reunites with a new album after a dozen years

I am ordering my copy of Wild Journey and if all my Facebook Friends and all their Facebook Friends order it, I am sure they will live it and maybe it will sell way over a million copies. Let's get on it fans!

Re: “Talking Poetry With Cass McCombs

I think Big Wheel blows Wits End and Humor Risk completely out of the water. It's the best kind of sprawling double-record, punctuated with great pop songs and imbued with confidence, even when it heads out into untested waters ("Everything Has to be Just So").

Re: “Critics' Picks: August 7 - 13

Motely Crue & Alice Cooper??? This is truly the ultimate 'rock' concert...as in 'rocking-chair'!!! and, what better venue than the Viagra Pavillion. I hope their, 'Cease and Desist' contract is irrevocable. May Lawrence Welk R.I.P.
