22:28 - Apothecary Of course you can't really expect everyone who goes to shows to know the background about EVERY band they're going to be seeing. But still, a general idea would be nice. It's black metal, (most of) it is quite extreme live
22:24 - ScreamingSteelUS Shit happens. Shining happens. Don't go calling out Abigail Williams and Origin for touring with them or the venue or the fans or everybody else. That's just pointless and stupid.
22:23 - ScreamingSteelUS The fact that "it's black metal" doesn't necessarily excuse what are some objectively rude or unsettling practices, because as Che said, sometimes it's a bit much, but, you know, do some research. It still IS black metal.
22:22 - ScreamingSteelUS I guess I'm sympathetic towards her because she did have an uncomfortable experience for perfectly understandable reasons, but she loses me by making it everybody else's problem and blaming everyone else for humoring Kvarforth.
22:19 - ScreamingSteelUS I'm genuinely torn between "she's overreacting hilariously" and "actually, that seems pretty fair." Either way, I was so ready for her to punch Kvarforth.
22:14 - Apothecary Real shit, upon first reading this article I thought it was satirization of overly sensitive PC types. Maybe it actually is
22:13 - Maco The fact that she didn't leave makes me think deep inside she was having a great time. Lol
American band Jolly was preparing their biggest tour for spring 2013 to promote their upcoming new album and in October Hurricane Sandy destroyed drummer Louis Abramson's home and recording studio and most of their gear. The band's upcoming album and tour are now in jeopardy. The band is asking people to help them by donating.
The band released this statement: "In September 2012, we were fortunate enough to secure the biggest opportunity of our career to date; a spring 2013 tour opening for Riverside to promote our upcoming album, The Audio Guide To Happiness (Part 2).
On October 29th, 2012, Hurricane Sandy brought major flooding to Rockaway Park, destroying our drummer Louis' home, which also functioned as Jolly's practice space and recording studio. Despite efforts to elevate valuables and board up windows, the storm surge exceeded all expectations, busting through the boarded windows and ripping through our headquarters, completely destroying most of our equipment and Louis' personal possessions. A majority of what we used to make our music was violently tossed around and left covered in sewage water, mud, sand, and garbage.
We're looking to rebuild and get new gear to continue making music for all of you, the incredible people who have always been the foundation of Jolly. In order to make this album and tour possible, we are calling on you, our fans and friends, to help us with this effort. In the unfortunate event that we are unable to raise the funds to buy new gear and tour in the spring for Audio Guide 2, it would be very difficult to release the album this February. We would have to wait until proper promotion through touring is financially feasible. Also, Jolly will not be able to record any future music until we can get our studio up and running again.
Our goal is set at a modest $10,000 but in actuality, replacing our equipment and going on tour will cost $30,000+. We've assembled a number of rewards packages as our way of thanking fans that help to back our cause, and look forward to preparing these rewards for you if the campaign is successfully funded. Jolly loves you."
