Q: How do we get in touch with you?
A: Send an email to lucidculture [at] gmail [dot] com. That’s the general address for this blog and its older sister jazz/classical music blog Lucid Culture.
Q: On the live music calendar, how come you listed the headline act and not the openers? (there’s a variant on this question that pops up every so often: how come you listed the opening acts and not the headliner?)
A: Several possible answers. A) there were opening acts? B) the opening acts (or headliner) sucked and that’s why they weren’t listed. The live music calendar isn’t a listing of every band playing every venue: it’s a carefully selected list of good performers. Many times, a good band will follow a sucky band or vice versa. You won’t find the sucky bands here.
Q: Why do you hate Facebook so much?
A: The problems with Facebook are well documented and all over the web: do some basic googling and you’ll find out enough to make you want to cancel your account, in the event that you are one of the dwindling minority who still haven’t canceled their Facebook pages. Be aware that fewer than 50% of Americans under 20 are on Facebook: kids are hip to what’s going on. Think about it: if the government told everyone including you that they had to sign over all their personal info including 24/7 GPS location along with photos of family, children, friends and friends’ children, plus your resume, your workplace, your political affiliation, your taste in movies, tv, music and books, the sports teams you root for AND all email communication with all your friends, there would be a FUCKING REVOLUTION. But because it’s Facebook that’s doing it and not the government, that makes it somehow ok??? Facebook is fascist. They must be destroyed. Destruction starts with a total boycott. Be part of the revolution and let’s bring those fascists down. Death to Facebook!
