the Other Paper's Article

Adam Smith sums it up with one line:
“It was clear (“We Are Columbus”) had no context for how South by Southwest actually works,” Smith said.


Oh no, I think the better quote to sum this all up is “It just sounds like vacation,” McGann said. “To really do something, it takes risk. You’re making a long-term investment. You might lose money initially, but paying your dues...it counts, it still matters.”
“I’ve never seen anyone get successful the way they’re doing it.”

The last line sums up how stupid this outrage really sounds.

I think I will kickstart a prog showcase and call it "Columbus Sounds Like This" just to give you all something more to cry about.

I think the "issue" is that these bands generally suck, and they look like a bunch of naive corncobs. Thus, they make "Columbus" look like a bunch of naive corncobs.

Well, sir, they are naive corncobs who turned a profit on an unofficial showcase at SXSW, if you can believe what they're saying about each band getting $300 on a $200 investment. My guess is that the folks involved will not take Duffy's or Adam's advice, and next year we can refer to them as ignorant and/or stubborn corncobs. But they'll continue to do this so long as people sponsor it.

And yes...it's time to start whining about comfest.

I think the real issue here is whether you all think tagging is a legitimate art form.

Didn't someone bring this up earlier in the thread?....the whole endeavor might have been taken more seriously if the bands involved were actually actively booking shows outside of Columbus in the first place.

If they even played somewhat adventurous local shows, if they often hosted no name out of towns coming through town, if they didn't cling so painfully to the subsection of the city that goes to their shows but knows two songs on their album...I think the perception would be much more positive.
