Know Your Audience

Posted on Mon, Jan 31, 2011 at 2:00 PM

Dear Halifax bars, every weekend I like to have some drinks and dance. I'm in my apartment all week, so by Friday I want to get out, mingle, and support local businesses. Unfortunately, you only cater to the top 40 and house communities. This leaves me hosting living room dance parties that don't give you any money. Is it too much to ask for a bar that reflects the Halifax festival scene that we so proudly tote year after year? I'm simply asking for a single place that would reliably play the following music: Bloc Party, LCD Soundsystem, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, You Say Party! We Say Die!, Franz Ferdinand, Modest Mouse, Beck, Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, Caribou, CSS, Death From Above 1979, Freeland, Girl Talk, Hawksley Workman, Hot Chip, M.I.A., Metric, MGMT, The New Pornographers, The Rapture, Ruby Jean and the Thoughtful Bees, Slowcoaster, The Ting Tings, etc. We proudly boast when these bands come to town, but we never deliver on any follow through, which comes off as hypocritical. So please, one Halifax bar, step up and deliver on some of the music that we Haligonians so clearly enjoy! —Gatt
