Morgan’s Pier Is A “Disgusting Evil Piece Of Shit Venue” According To Some Guy On Facebook Who Seems To Know A Lot
If you thought all the pretty cool free shows—Pissed Jeans,/A Place To Bury Strangers/ GANG (7/28), Fang Island (7/21), The Pains of Being Pure At Heart (7/14)— on the schedule at the new Four Corners/R5 riverfront venture Morgan’s Pier were a good thing Philadelphians should be excited about, well, you’re just an ignorant motherfucker who doesn’t know EVIL when he sees it. That, in so many words anyway, according to one-time Ox show booker Gregg Dupp, who took to the Facebook invitation of an upcoming MP show by total badass good vibe rockers Spacin’ to let everyone clicking “Yes, I will attend” know just what kind of brainwashed tools of The Man they were. Dupp’s buddy Barclay Shields chimed in too, and from there the wall of the invitation just turned into a pissing match about authenticity, warehouse shows vs. corporate gigs, The Bougie vs. The Proletariat, what constitutes freedom, and whether or not the new Pixar movie Brave lives up to the very high bar the studio has set with their other stellar movies. (We might’ve read that last one somewhere else. We don’t know. Our eyes glazed over about mid-way through this FB page because we thought discussions like this ended in the ’90s.)
Anyway, Spacin’ play Moragn’s Pier this Wendesday at 10pm. As you know, we think they’re pretty alright. Go see them like the Corporate Shill you are! It’ll cost you Zero Dollars, the Official Cover Price of The Man. The Spacin’ FB invite is here, and is recommended readin’!
