Re: “Mail and Commentary October 6, 2010

Kudo's Ringelsletter, it's sad to lose Old Boise Guitar...can't imagine what it's long time owner Johnny Shoes is feeling about now. Also have to agree about the musician thing. For a long time, I've wondered about a seeming lack of support for local artists. I am not a musician, but I have always been a concert junkie who's observed this odd cultural myth that if it isn't from out of town, it isn't worth seeing. Festivals, like Eagle Fun Days are notorious for spending big bucks on out-of-state bands. Truthfully, Idaho is rich with great musicians, and no one can have a greater impact,and perhaps social responsibility, for getting them heard than the Boise Weeekly and writers like Michael Deeds. I enjoy reading their work, but when you look at the multitude of out-of-town bands being paid big bucks to perform in the Boise area virtually every day, it gets downright ridiculous...if not tragic...like the closing of Old Boise Guitar.
