We have to take back our streets.
We are losing all our live music venues and the buildings are being handed over to filthy corporate giants. The cops are threatening us more than ever with shut-downs and fines. We don't need any more nightclubs or high-rise apartment blocks! We have to put exclusivity behind us and take our art and music and culture into peoples homes faster than they can call Pizza Hut for a fucking delivery.
There is no point, friends, to keep our passion brewing underground and disallowing the average person that walks down the street to hear our voices. We've been doing that for far too long. This is the time where we all need to just forget about wanting to create "scenes" and "cliques" and remember that we're all just trying to be ourselves despite our shackled ankles and the imprisoning structure of society. If we could all just come together and stand up against the mediocrity and dullness that has taken over our alleys and stages then maybe we'd finally be able to collectively tear up laws that creep up on us telling us we can't live freely.
And if anybody reads this and goes "Fuckin' anarchist" then ask yourself if your freedoms have been compromised by the very people that are against the "anarchists". You may end up feeling just the same way I do. Don't lose sight of your emotions and heart because some crazy suit-enslaved loser divided us into a mess of categories and turned us all against each other. The more you bury yourself... well, that's exactly it really: You're burying yourself! Nobody in this world should be afraid of showing their beautiful souls. Nobody.
Also - here's Reclaim the Lanes. I've never been to one before but I think it's appropriate to promote it on this post. Hope to see you there!
