Alittle perspective of this Will Dockery charactor and the so called Columbus music scene by Josh Green, a Columbus music insider:

That being said, the delusions of grandeur and sense of entitlement put forth by some of the local Columbus musicians is astounding. That's what most people seem to find the most amusing, including other local musicians. It's that kind of arrogance and delusional thinking that people find so laughable (and in my case, annoying).

When CutBait was announced and the initial reaction from these so-called music lovers were "WHY AREN'T WE PLAYING?!?!" it was shocking to me. It's comparable to some 60 year old guy who performs for free at a coffee shop open mic in Manchester, TN being absolutely offended that he wasn't booked for Bonnaroo to open up for Sir Paul McCartney. And the reason he deserves that honor? Because he lives there. Absolutely ridiculous, frustrating, annoying, and infuriating to someone like myself, who pays my bills 100% on attempting to appeal to music lovers.
Long story short: The local "scene" sucks not because the music sucks, to each their own, it sucks because too many of the people involved know nothing about the music industry, are delusional, and have a sense of entitlement.
My $.02
I would also say the music is bad also.

I wish someone knew how to use the technology and combine Will Dockery and Ma Rainey's faces together.
That would be....uh...something.

Well feel free not to listen... heh.

Luckily, the vast majority of listeners don't share your lack of musical taste, though!
