Further to a prior post (http://tinyurl.com/ygcpfxs), it seems a few religious organizations are “outraged” by the Real Estate/Beets show @ St James Church on January 15th.
I think a few of the comments were appropriate…and no, not about Total Slacker…I liked those guys. And they had more fun playing a good set, than you did commenting about them. I can assure you.
But the question remains, is it ok toss some young, vibrant rock and roll surrounding the alter of an institution (we’ll call it that), where you may or may not appreciate? I mean, this show was a stretch…from one of the commenters, http://tinyurl.com/ycphcux:
“I heard the place was totally trashed by the end of the show – beer cans and cigarette butts everywhere.
I’m not religious but beer, puking, cigarettes and pot at a church, with the remnants left for others to clean up is kinda like…. Letting your friend have people over to your house without you there and coming back and finding people crapped over your place. I don’t think it’s a religious issue as much as a respect issue.”
