I've got a whole city to hold down

August 11, 2004

All you little kids seem to think you know just where it's at...

There is an interesting little tiff bubbling up on the Empty Bottle message board, where in late July somebody claiming to be a local musician posted allegations that indie promoter MP Shows "jacks" local bands. Some have echoed the charges while others have said that a promoter's higher costs may explain the discrepancy, especially considering the number of all-agers mounted by MP Shows.

Anyone with a perspective on this please chime in below - we're curious to know what our savvy readers think of the merits of the various sides in this debate.
