Queen Kwong (local music scene) is a joke...

This scene is a joke.

So here's the story and I'll spin it quick:

L.A. band with a self-indulged frontwoman who takes nude pics to try to "get over the hump" which fails (but hey I'm not judging), and then hooks up with a 90's relic from Limp Bisquit and it finally gains some steam.

They decide to "move" to Michigan and is a featured act at the "largest local music festival investigated by the IRS" the Hamtramck Music Festival.  They had a few supporting shows before the Fest but after the Fest.....absolutely nothing.  Way to go Michigan.

Next up is a UK tour financed by Wes Borland's Visa followed by a "new record" which nobody will be able to name a song from.

They're like a tick.....chomp down on a local music fest (advertised as volunteered but were they paid????) and then disappear.

So Queen Kwong....fuck off.  Age is going to hit you hard...

So make a t-shirt about that, airhead...

There are absolutely ZERO local music writers who give a shit anymore. I understand the need to be positive about local music, but just ignoring all the bullshit going around is inexcusable. If you call yourself a "music journalist" and turn a blind eye to the terrible stuff that is going around and just co-opting press releases and sugar coating everything.....well fuck. And to you, I say, Fuck you too. There's no opinion anymore. You're welcome.

Oh, and just to reiterate how much of a joke this is.  I hope every act that played the "largest local music festival being investigated by the IRS" takes a good look at this pic.


Great job EVERYONE!

I strive to be as bitter, lonely, and jaded as you one day.

Well, thank God that Wes and Carrie came to save Detroit by renovating that mansion in Arden Park and playing some crappy shows. All the folks worrying about the city... crime and homelessness, blight, crumbling infrastructure, keeping the lights on... THANK GOD WE'RE ALL SAVED!

One big circle jerk. Its laughable how many people turn their eyes with this shit just so they can have the "chance" to hop on yet one more show. I've said it since 2007, you can repackage everybody only so many times Sex Ghost>Odd Hours>to firing the black mud dude and Prussia> Jamiacan Queens. Craig Brown Band.....nuff said. If you haven't made it, you won't make it. Have fun, but deal with it rock and roll.

This is hilarious. I don't know which is more ridiculous Carrie trying to make a name for herself or Wes riding on 20 year old memories...

Your Facebook post actually worded it better. There are zero people who have an opinion anymore. They make fun because of your music and live shows but really, there is NO local music journalism anymore. Don't stop. Which place/fest/charity is crooked next? Nobody else will report.

Fucking rich out of towners...and that people defend them or give them shows is hilarious.

Haha...that you think ANYTHING matters to club owners besides bringing asses in the doors, you are fucking dumb. Queen Kwong actually draws people, while JCM drives them away. It isn't rocket science.

JCM hasn't played a show in over a year. So by your logic, while Queen Kwong playing may benefit but one venue, by JCM not playing ALL the local venues benefit. Isn't that DELIGHTFUL?
