This Means War, Seattle Weekly
In an online post this morning, Seattle Weekly posted 4 Good Reasons-Besides the Meth- to Drive to Spokane to see G. Love this Weekend.
First off, G. Love sucks. Second, there are a lot of better things to do in Spokane on a Friday night than hang out at The Knitting Factory. Check out what Gwendolyn Elliott of Seattle Weekly had to say about us:
Spokane, Washington. Ah, yes. There are so many reasons not to go there – the considerable excess of Wal-Marts, the tweaked-out, drug-addled zombie people, and for every Smartcar modestly obeying traffic in Seattle, there are two over sized, gas-guzzling pick-up trucks in Spokane running over flowers and babies. Yet here I am, making up a list of reasons why you should drive there on Friday. Well, it’s all about the love – G. Love, that is. Here are four (mostly) rational reasons why you should make the journey to the other side for his show Friday at the Knitting Factory.
Ohmygod, what? No seriously, what? This statement is clearly short sided, myopic and straight up ridiculous. I appreciate her attempt at comedy, but not her attempt at comedy through a stereotype ( I think that’s called a hate crime). Anyway, the commenters on her post love Spokane, too.
My gas-guzzling pick-up is a bike, meth jokes belong in the ’90s, and I don’t shop at Wal-Mart.
