Your weekly musicians' ads. (Special Supplementary Edition)

Remember two weeks ago? The part with The Review Gal? You know, she couldn't write very well, she reviewed cover bands, and (I couldn't tell if) she either hadn't an idea to express or just didn't know how to express the ones she had. Remember her? Yeah? Good.
Now, remember the supplementary edition from that same week? How everybody there responded to (read: lost their shit over) the blue fox ultra mega super jam jam time? Yeah, Minneapolis musicians apparently love nothing more than to dog pile on a waste of time. Witness the butthurt...

The review gal! Please Review My Band! (Twin Cities)

I have a review for you: you can't spell, you use horrible grammar and have no knowledge of music or of what it's like to play in a live band. Your "review" of City Knights is that the drummer is cute and the "suck knob" was turned up. You're an idiot. Do every musician in this town a favor and stay the hell home where you clearly belong, and stop writing ridiculous "reviews" that slam bands that don't play shitty current pop or aren't cute enough for you to fantasize about. After reading your bullshit for quite a while now, She's posted twice, guy. I've come to the conclusion that you don't have a brain cell in your head, which is reflected in your writing -- it's truly awful. And I'll bet good money the picture you posted is not even remotely close to what you look like. DDDuuuhhh...

Sincerely yours,

A local musician with over 25 years experience playing live in and around the Twin Cities

To all the haters out there, this Review Girl is your majority audience!! ? Yeah, she is not a musician or in a band, OK, we all suspect that but does anybody know this for a fact? either are your audience. Listen up, you might learn something. These small stupid details are what the general public pays attention to when they go out to see a show, they don't care or understand how long you worked on getting that Eddie VanHalen gtr solo or how many hours you spent in practice to nail all the chords and harmonies to that Boston song, they care how you look, ? act on stage, ? sound......get a clue! About what? Cover bands? Look good, act pro, have fun and don't suck and don't go crying when someone doesn't like your show!!

This review reeks of BS. This isn't somebody reviewing a band. It's somebody getting some sort of revenge. OOOKKK, now I think we're going off the deep end. It was clear the first time I read it and since it's been reposted I'm even more convinced. Shame on you whoever you are. This is a petty, immature thing to do. No, it's a tactless manner in which to say she doesn't like something. From the lack of language skills displayed in her writing over all, one could presume that she's not very practiced at making negative comments in a constructive manner. Or the short version: She's not mean, she's dumb. Plus, it's not even very well done! Put a little effort in. Perhaps some software or a smarter person to help you with the syntax, grammar, and spelling. Better yet, just move on. You're clearly not cut out for this sort of thing. WWWaaaiiittt a minute now. You can tell her she sucks to the point where she ought to pack it in but she can't make a similar comment about a fucking cover band? Wow, way to point out "petty, immature" things to do.

I agree, these reviews are very immature. This is supposed to be a forum for musicians, not your 'typical audience'. Find a different forum Bruv, it's not a forum, it's a fucking classifieds site. If I can get a futon and a VCR here, it's not a forum. or start a facebook review site. Perhaps the most reasonable thing posted thus far.

City Knights Review (Fridley)

Reply to: xxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx@comm.craigslist.org

I am a former owner of many nightclubs around town. Indeed, I booked City Knights at my last bar. They drew a crowd every time. They played their material consistently, and up to a professional standard. I booked them many, many times over a 6 year period. All of the musicians in this band are experienced and know what they are doing. I, for one, would hire them in a minute if I owned a bar currently (indeed, I am pursuing another right now and will cll upon them again). I enjoy Tommy and his crew. And for those who don't know, Tommy is an entertainment professional who makes a living working the equipment at major concert venues around town. I am talking Target Center/State Theater/Excel, etc. I would bet his credentials stack up a little higher than most in the business. Anyway, I find it quite disquieting that a slander review is posted here. Slander!? Slander!? All she said, albeit in one of the more moronic and sophomoric ways possible, was that a cover band sucked and you call that slander? This listing category is not the place for it. Lady - take your review, if you can remotely call it that She did call it that because that's what it was. Piss poor, yes, but that's what it was. - and . . . Thanks Tommy and City Knights for all your work for me over the years!

Add me to the list that think this is totally dispicable. I bet she never thought she was going to catch this much hyperbolic shit. I'll even give you another angle and the name of MY BUSINESS and why I completely disagree with your post or reasoning behind it...no matter whom you really are.

As a local 22 yr DJ for a living and an ameteur guitarist myself, people like you, whom I'm guessing has never done either, it's always easy to take cheap shots from the cheap seats isn't it?! So, wait a minute, this is starting to bother me: Granted, I'm a musician, so I get a sort-of pass when I concoct a record review but since when does somebody need to be an active participant in a particular field to have an opinion on said field? So, she's not a musician? She can't have an opinion on a band or a record? Or is she not allowed to have negative ones? Hey, guess what: I've never made a movie or a TV show. Does that mean I can't form and maybe publicly state my opinion of movies or television programs? Do I have to wait until I publish one of my three novels before I can talk shit about the Twilight books again? This whole idea of "you-don't-know-how-to-do-it-so-you're-not-qualified-to-judge-it" is largely bullshit. It doesn't take away from that she did a piss poor job of writing her review, I'm just saying that I'm seeing some far shittier and hyperbolic attitudes than she presented. Everybody and their brother thinks they can do it just like everyone on Craigslist or Facebook thinks if they go to Guitar Center and by the gear, their suddenly a club mix-master or rockstar over night. Everybody does? Everybody? I won't speak for the band personally (and by the way... I have seen these guys regularly and they rock in my opinion and I agree with the previous post from the bar owner...professional all the way...so you're WAY off), but from me personally, anytime you want to step un the stage n front of the mic for me, have at it!!

As far as the band goes again...Your post is soooo loaded with calculated ignorance She said the band chewed gum and drank beer on stage and that the drummer was cute. That qualifies as "calculated ignorance"? Really? it's rather unfortunate that you choose to pick on one of the nicest bunch of guys on top of being really good. How's that job @ BK working out for ya huh? Oh we know..."Exciting things are happening @ BK" right? You sure showed her!

He posted all of his contact info here.

I read the reviews of review gal. People you're giving her what she wants. She has no credibility. DDDuuuhhh... Reviewing a band is more than what YOU like. You want audience reaction, draw and the appeal based on the genre. And cue the Lil Jon voice and say, "What!?"
