Houston Calling

The Decemberists weigh in on the Houston Two Gallants incident at Walter’s

October 16th, 2006 · 2 Comments

This is from a bulletin from The Decemberists on MySpace:

If you live in Houston and want live music to still come to your town, get involved in this tragedy. So many of you have been writing to us and asking us to come to Houston. Seeing this really makes me never want to come back again…The information to file a complaint is listed at the bottom of the page. Please call in.

Two Gallants are friends of ours, we toured with them in Europe. I have to say they are the nicest guys in the world. They are quiet vegans and weigh in at about 100 pounds each for god sakes. There is no way they would have done something to deserve or instigate this this kind of treatment. If you live in Houston (or beyond) you should be outraged.

    Well i didn’t see the bulletin but i DID see that the decemberists are playing Dallas and Austin and have a packed schedule that looks like it never included Houston to begin with. Maybe it’s our lack of smoking ordinance since Colin whiiiiiined onstage about people smoking at Mary Jane’s when they last played here.

    So why would the Decemberists threaten their fans to never come here again? Their fans are the ones who got beat up/tazered/bullied while by the same asshole who beatup/tazered /bullied their friends in Two Gallants.

    Fuck The Decemberists and the white horse they never rode in on. We’re the ones who gotta put up with shit from the cops AND the fucking outsider so-called do-gooders. Save me your indignation, Colin.
