10-year veteran of Creative Loafing-Tampa, loves music (most types, Phish up at the top), the local music scene (way, way underrated), travel (anything that takes…
Working. Listening to Music. Etc.
Much obliged, ya'll. It came from the heart :-)
DTz, he's not due to perform until Sunday, so we hope he'll be recouped by then....
Foster the People has one (1) good track. The rest of Mark Foster's songwriting sounds like everything else that's out right now, and not very interesting at that. In fact, FTP's status as a 'headliner' on this festival bill is a little perplexing, in my learned (not rocks for brains) Music Editor's opinion, especially in relation to Vampire Weekend & Outkast. At least ZZ Ward has a great voice and looks going for her :-)
Sorry you disagree, Scott. You know what they say about opinions...
Awesome review. Wish I could've been there, rain and all.
This is super duper exciting!
Homer - you know there is more than one definition of 'epic,' right? And yes, I would say the theater is majestic, impressively great, spectacular, etc.
Rolanda - info about how the money was raised was included in the first several stories written about the venue; I wasn't trying to write a 'report' or a news story so much as a feature offering a look at the new theater a month deep into its opening. Capitol Theatre is a nonprofit venture owned by the City of Clearwater and operated by Ruth Eckerd Hall Foundation (also a nonprofit); fundraisers, grants and patron donations are typically the methods employed to raise capital for nonprofits. The City purchased the building; REH raised the funds, managed the renovation and is operating the venue.
Didn't Elvis cop the majority of his music from other (not famous, African American) blues artists? So, what does that say about Elvis?
