Yeah, Wes Malvini informed me of that after the story ran. Sorry about that.--Ben Schultz

Re: “Evil Wine Leaves Its Stain on Boise

For the Record, Grandmas House was a long established and influential house venue ran by Kim B. and Tyler Scott long before Wes Malvini ever arrived in Boise or put his foot on the front porch. Check your facts Weekly!

Re: “Red Room Seeking Buyer

The disappointment in what owners Mitch and Christine have done to the original "Red Room" is bottomless. They transformed the iconic and much adored shotgun bar on Main Street into an unfathomable parade of insufferable pretentiousness with a resounding lack of foresight, all in an attempt to expand their insatiable quest for a lucrative enterprise in an industry they know next to nothing about. The mark they have left on their patrons, the bands they've hosted, and the employees that they've shown little regard for, is unsavory at best.

So congratulations Mitch, for destroying a place that many fondly called home and would have gladly continued despite the ownership change. Your kamikaze business strategies are not what this city needs or wants. Before you attempt to capture another market and bury it in the ground with you, reflect on this experience and realize that the impact that you have is widespread, and in your case, severely damaging to your clientele and the individuals under your employ. These are lives and experiences, and you are not enriching either.

Re: “Taking a (Fat) Chance

Mr. Eaton,
I knew Sammy Johns the old days, I just found out he died in January, because I was looking for a recording of Rag Doll. I wrote with Sammy for a while and then one day he asked me to leave because one of our buddies who was bumming money from him told him I was a witch.I really got a laugh out of that, but sadly Sammy believed him and I never saw him again. That same buddy stole 5 of my songs on "Rollin on Down the Road" a year or so later. I just looked Sammy up and found out about his demise, and was shocked sad. He was a good bird hunting while I knew him in North Georgia. I took him to all my favorite hunts. He sure must of been afraid of witches, I always thought that it was real Mark Twainy of him. He was in fact a real good person- at least what I knew of him. One day he sang rag doll for me while we were writing and talking bull - i suppose and it was the best song he ever sang; he did it perfect. Great song man I wish I could meet you some day. If you ever come to NC, drop by the Greystone Inn, I am there as scheduled. until Thanksgiving. Your Friend at heart,
Mickey Davis

Re: “Norma Jean: Redeemer

One of the dullest reviews I've ever read. It doesn't even try to make a point. Well, apart from saying that this is chaos and noise; which is neither wrong or right, is just a extremely tenuous argument. Everything he says could be easily said for thousands of metalcore albums. The review is extraordinarily simplistic and the reviewer fails in reviewing THIS album in particular. And of course naively assumes that noisy sounds (just usual low-tuned distorted guitars, actually) have no artistic dignity whatsoever.

Re: “Show Review: 3 Sides of the Cube, Sept. 8, Terrapin Station

I heard that 3 Sides had an impromptu reunion the other night that went so well that they're considering doing a full-fledged reunion.

Re: “NOLA Memories

TMP's participation in this show will include the TMP dancers reuniting with Preservation Hall Jazz Band for an onstage improvisation in the spirit of New Orleans and the jazz legacy that PHJB is known for, (the two ballets will not be a part of the show).

Trey McIntyre Project is supporting the film project with a kickstarter project that ends this Friday. Take a look and become a part of the project:

Re: “From The Crazy Horse to the Red Room

I am adding Crazy Horse entries to my music history blog, a history of my time playing music in Boise and Seattle from 1983 to 2003 so I found this article doing research. As you can see from some of these comments, The Crazy Horse was around much earlier than 1991, in the early '80s, and in fact I cut my teeth playing live music there in a punk band called State Of Confusion which morphed into the band Treepeople, who also played many shows there - both of these bands played a lot with Primordial Soup (hello P-Souper!). I am collecting any memories, photos, anything from The Horse (as we lovingly called it) from the '80s. See the blog here:

Re: “Colorcube

I really want to start an all ages music venue in Charleston, WV and I'm wondering what you would tell me. I would really like a chance to talk. Is that possible?
