a has been? and you are from where now? garberville, yeah and that makes you current right. You ignorant redneck, damian marley grosses more in a minute than you have in a lifetime. then lets take nas, one of the most influential and prominent lyricists of all time. while the mainstay of his career has not been a current one, watch the sales soar on their latest album. and if you think even for a second that damian is riding the coat tails of the marley name, just listen to julian. i for one am thrilled to get these names up here and am even more elated to know that people like you are not so i dont have to breather the same stuffy air as you at the show. People like nas and damian have broken racial barriers, crossed cultural lines, and still s*** all over the pop culture so dominant in our society. what is it that you do again down there in garberville? oh yeah you sit on a hill in the middle of no where riding the coat tails of a plant. Way
to go man, way to go! and finally lets not forget, although i am a fan of his, hank williams is independantly founded funded and made right? thats what i thought

A bunch of meth-heads and stoned people from Eureka will be there too. A bunch of high bum losers and meth dealers. I hope that HCSO and APD will end it immediately due to drugs galore.

You must be one of those Puritans that is upset, because someone somewhere is having a good time, and you are just stuck with your miserable self.

The Shell Station in Mckinleyville has a sign saying 'NO TRANSIENTS NO DREADS' taped to their window last night. I was busting up with laughter!

Hey, it's their business, but some stores do not welcome the homeless. They are free to choose who they serve, and transients can decide where else to buy their Steel Reserve.

Not all Dreadheads are transients. Some are Rastafarians not to be confused with the Trustafarians. If I owned a business, I would make sure not to discriminate against anyone's religion, as that is a good way to get sued. Seems like Bigotry has become a BIG political movement in this country these days.

Shut the up coming psudo-Marley meth, cocaine, pot, alcohol, drug party down, I and plenty of other *residents* personally are fed up with the crime that is already overtaken the town of Arcata for 20 years.

Move it to Eureka, we're FED UP! WE HAVE CHILDREN, WERE NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANY LONGER!!

RELOCATE NOW!

Wow, looks like a few beat me through it. Please take the up coming show to Eureka instead of Arcata. I personally live a couple of blocks away with three young kids and am not putting up with the drugs and alcohol and longer. Kids are number ONE, the drug fests must be moved. I'm going to call everyone I know to insist on moving the show. I'm really really upset.

To all those that we talked with this morning and met last night, I just got off the phone with the FBI in Fortuna. They are going to check it out in plain clothes the night of the show. I'm going down to their office at 2:30 to file an Official Federal Complaint along with 12 others concerned.

Ha! Trinity County - Western Sidekick Paradise!
You might agree though...Reggae is real poseur-heavy.
Back in 1980? Bob Marley performed in Berkeley (got the poster!)
and from then on dudes would grow dreads, and affect a Jamaican accent.
"Fakin' Jamaicans"...!
So many stupid chicks fell for that...!

Wtf is the FBI going to do? Shut down a concert because of inbreeding yuppies don’t know what they are talking about? And to the person living three blocks away with kids? Who gives a sh*t? Be a parent and supervise your children. What do you think is going to happen? A bunch a dread’s rolling up to your house to wake your kids up and smoke some reefer with them? Your kids would probably love it if they hadn’t already snuck out to see threw show. Damn, you’d think they were trying to have this show in Fortuna with the remarks on here. It’s Arcata; you guys love and protect the dirtbags
