Village Voice review of a Beacon show

#150072 2 years, 3 months ago
Review of a Beacon show in The Village Voice. A bit offensive with the multiple "Fake Jerry" references:

blogs.villagevoice.com/music/2012/04/fur..._april_17_review.php

The GD and related bands were never treated kindly by music reviewers.


The review has a link to an old (2010) article about the nitrous mafia:

These are the good old days!!

This reads like someone had the writers arm twisted behind their back, forcing this obvious ANTI-DEADHEAD to comment on something that he has nothing but snide, crass remarks for (how many times does he mention their "7 night run"?), reads more like a proclamation of the great job beacon security did in shutting things down.
Thanks for posting, I appreciate perspective from different viewpoints whether I agree or not.

Village Voice -WEAK

#150108 2 years, 3 months ago
Well, I guess my bumper-sticker still hold's true, "Wherever We Go The People All Complain".
Has New York City changed for the worse ? I have no desire to go there for anything anymore.
Fake-Jerry, give me a break ! Let me see Village Noise reviewer "Jesse Jarnow ' play the intricate lead guitar riffs as good as John does for us.

Am I the only one who cringes at calling John, Fake Jerry? I can't stand that name

Glad to see the people in the comments section feel the same way we do.

Furthur - come do a 8 night run in a little theatre in Denver, we won't call JK "Fake Jerry" I promise.
I went walkin' out last summer
Tryin' to find a breath of air
I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there

the Village Voice is at best a decent free paper. This guys review does nothing to elevate them beyond that status.

The Ogden is my favorite. How about the Gothic too?
