RVA Musician Urges the City to Encourage a Music Scene instead of Taxing the hell out of it
“The system isn’t profitable as it is, but for people within the community, profit isn’t important.”
Dwight and CAPS, et al.:
Please put our tax monies toward real causes. Stop imposing taxes that prevent the growth of locally-owned businesses, whether they are part of the arts scene or not. CAPS, please turn your attentions toward the city’s great problem with blight (the REAL reason you were supposed to exist) and leave these goddamn kids with their rock and roll alone.
Oh and Charles, don’t think for a second I’m not talking to you, too.
They are even making a remake of Footloose, so you guys best get on that. Learn from the the ARTS!
Another fine example on how rich fucks want to reap the arts from the artists, but don’t want everything else that goes along with it.
This article is insanely revealing and poignant. Don’t tout the community if you don’t want to back it up, RVA City Council. Cut the shit and give the arts back to the artists.
