Re: “Reverb

Don't worry you still suck

Re: “Reverb

My problem is his blurb is a disservice to the Colorado Springs music scene. The scene here could be so much better if there were more people involved with writing the "Reverb" column. A rotating list of columnists with different musical focuses would be a good start. I do agree it's hard to catch everything but frankly when I see major stuff get overlooked constantly it gets discouraging. Look at the bands Boulder, Denver, and Fort Collins get and then take a look at the bands we get, it pales by comparison. We could have a music scene as good if not better than those cities but there isn't any reason for them to come this way. The paper should be trying to build a better and more diverse scene not just help out a the bands that some guy likes.

Re: “Reverb

I'm not asking for a list. His focus is myopic at best and he only chooses to write about the bands he is friends with. Don't get me started about the conflict of interest he has when it comes to reporting his own mediocre band. I could give you a list of MAJOR artists that have come through the springs that were just passed by and ignored by his column. I do like some of the bands he reports on but man there are so many that never even get mentioned in his column. For the record the csindy calendar is worthless. It is hardly ever right except for the few bands who have an in with the paper. That is the last place I would ever go for what is going on around here.

Re: “Reverb

Once again another worthless "Reverb" I've been seeing music in the southern colorado region for over 4 years and most of the band I see are never mentioned here. I have seen some killer national acts come through the springs with not even a peep about it. This is the most worthless column I have ever read. If you want to find music in this area look for another source.
