There doesn’t seem to be any shows of interest to MPN this weekend, so like whatever.
Here’s a Seattle Weekly article “Punk Rock is Bullshit.” While interesting, and containing valid points, the article’s inflammatory and silly. Punk rock isn’t going to go away because this crabby old (and presumably white) guy doesn’t like the concept. The article’s also exclusionist as hell. Punk rock exists around the world, and it arguably means a whole hell of a lot more to people in more oppressive countries. The members of Pussy Riot are in jail, for God’s sake. Tell them that punk rock is a meaningless fashion statement.
