Thread Name: Death of Diversity?
Subject: RE: Death of Diversity?
I look out on the confluence of the Allegheny and the Monongahela, the gateway to the west. My chief complaint about Pittsburgh music is what I call the S.O.S.O. factor. That stands for Same Old Same Old. If it isn't something you've heard a few hundred times before, and it's possible somebody in the audience might not like it, it doesn't get played. You know where I first heard the Macarena? I heard it at the Smoky City Folk Festival! Money's tight, so everyone's scared to be original.
