Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
nah, I'm not shocked.
I just can't figure out why anyone would like being involved in something that's populated by such obnoxiousness..and if the repetitive threads here are in any way an accurate reflection of the way things are, I just don't see the charm.

I've spent plenty time around theatre folk. The competitive crap there made sense because there are limited parts available and they didn't pretend to hide their egotistic strutting and they didn't point hateful fingers at their audience to blame them for bad productions.
Music is not limited..there's enough for all of us.
Theatre is competitive.
Music can be cooperative.

Sneering with superiority at organizers, performers, audience and such doesn't shock revolts me.
