it seems that there is some eric/numbskull thing going on. this guy chris is booking where eddie has long been established, and if you deal with this guy, eddie will ban you. so what? he does emo and hardcore, of which we are neither. we have never been asked to do a numbskull show. he has passed on angry samoans for 4 years now. eddie does what he does and he does it well. more power to him. eric is teaming up with him. cool. eric has done some great punk gigs at the alpine. as the guy chris states, what eric is saying will just affect the bands and the kids. we are going to do the gigs up there with him. no one has the right to say you can't work with a promoter, or to make bands pay to play, or any of that bullshit. so ban us. we were never in an unbanned position with eddie anyways. this is all about power and money, and any of the promoters who say differently are not telling the truth about that subject. sorry eric for posting this publicly, but people need to know. you're still my friend.
