JOEL MADDEN = TATTOO CRIMINAL?
Well, it looks like Bobby Fisher's tattoo re-criminalization wish may be coming true after all. Earlier today, Good Charlotte's Joel Madden was forced to cover his tattoos before a British Airways crew would allow him to board a flight. Check his twitter here.
Now, I spent a solid nine minutes (let's call it an even ten) reflecting on whether or not this deserves a post of its own, and even more time wrestling with having to link Twitter. But if it means I make a few enemies on this here interweb, then so be it. It's not my intention to give Mr. Madden and his merry band of tattooed popsters more press for being merry or tattooed. But the unbelievable discrimination imposed upon him by the staff at British Airways is inexcusable -- it's not simply in poor taste. Maybe they could have gotten away with it in previous decades, but no one (regardless of your opinion of them) should have to put up with that kind of prejudice.
The icing on this bigoted cake of intolerance, is that many of his tattoos are religious, featuring #1 good time party guy and embracer of outcasts Jesus "It's Okay If You're a Social Pariah" Christ. Let's hope British Airways was just experiencing a momentary lapse in judgement. I guess I won't be carrying on my Daniel O'Connell portrait any time soon.
Now that we have Passover, Easter and Tax Day behind us, it's time to celebrate with another afternoon of FREE live music at Parkside Lounge!
Saturday, April 18th - 2pm
Lapdance Academy Presents:
"Death, Taxes & Resurrection"
317 E. Houston St. (at Attorney)
New York, NY
We'll be welcoming our newest additions to the lineup (The Celebration of Man, Samuel Barron, Seth Berkowitz of Lucky Ghost and Matt Whyte of Earl Greyhound) as well as performances from all your old favorites (Alex Walker, Emily Zuzik, Dorie Colangelo, Len Xiang, The Knuckleheads and yours truly)!
Everyone is encouraged to dress in the "Easter Best" now that spring has sprung - and what better way to spend a 70 degree, sunny saturday than in a dark LES bar? It's a FREE SHOW, but the hat will be passed and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Save The Music Foundation.
And speaking of FREE...
Odds are you illegally download music from the internets. There's also a strong chance that this racks you with such guilt that you lie awake in bed at night thinking about all of the bloated, soulless industry fat cats artists that you've stolen money from. Well, my friends, I have the question for you: what if artists actually gave their stuff away for free, on purpose, and it was actually good?
Crazy Talk, I know, but that very thing is happening at the newly launched Lapdance Academy.
Lapdance Academy is a collective of musicians who believe that the best things in life should be free: love, fountain-soda refills and DRM-exempt mp3 releases! Head on over to lapdanceacademy.com to download a free copy of Alex Walker's classic crowd-pleaser, "White Gown," and my shanty-town sing-a-long, "Lydia The Tattooed Lady."
We'll have plenty of more releases coming in the near future (including "From Soil To Shale" by Dogs of Winter on 5/12), so be sure to join our mailing list and follow us on the social networking platform of your choice:
