  1. This is a rant. I receive promotional emails from Earache Records, Rival Sons' label, which started out as a metal label but now includes rock. Recently they were promoting some band that plays "spit on the floor" rock music. I don't know what that is, but it sounds like their press person thinks the consumer is a high school dropout white male. I'm going to the Rival Sons show this Friday in New York, and looked up one of their opening acts. There's a quote on their website (Big Jon and the Wreck or something like that) from some media outlet: “Live, their set is derived in a way that makes you want to jump up & down, grow a beard, and close-knuckle-punch a bear in the jaw.” I don't want to grow a beard; I get facial hair removed by South Asian women who rip it off my face with sewing thread. Nor do I want to "knuckle-punch a bear in the jaw" as I am not a mentally retarded person with anger issues. It kind of makes me feel alienated that these bands, their labels and their publicity people don't seem to acknowledge fans might be 1. college educated, 2. female, 3. not complete f*%#ing idiots with warrants out for their arrest. Isn't it kind of stupid to market yourself to a shrinking demographic?
