Holy shit, that place is getting some huge tours in the coming months.

Sorry, but when The Aleternative Press tour and Underoath headlining shows are coming through you can't really expect there to be any kind of boundaries on this place.

I'm Catholic too, but on the real, I think that these bands are just trying to stir shat up. I mean, it's not even about religion, they're just trying to prove a point. It's like when a black person gets treated wrong by someone who isn't black and it's called "racism."
well yeah you've got a point there, most people are just idiots <_<

Who the hell would book these bands for a Christian rock event?

I didn't get that part either. The promoters probably just have this place as a regular venue and then certain people get all uptight and blow it out of proportion.

I've been to quite a few shows at Rocketown. The people who work there are really nice and during some shows, someone from the venue will go on stage between band sets and make general safety rule announcements and say something like, 'If you need to talk someone about anything, find a staff member and we'll talk with you. We're here to talk with you if you need to.' Something like that. I knew that it was a Christian establishment and I liked that. I hate being around a bunch of people smoking and drinking because I hate breathing in someone else's smoke and I hate stomping or tripping on plastic cups when I'm in the middle of a crowd in the middle of a set.

As the article mentioned, this isn't the first 'hardcore satanic metal band' to go through Rocketown. They have heavy metal shows there all the time. I would say that the majority of the bands that play there aren't Christian, but if they only let Christian bands play, the venue probably would have gone under a while ago. If this guy doesn't like the fact that his kid wants to go to this show, then he shouldn't let him go, it's as simple as that. Rocketown won't change their band bookings no matter how many people think they shouldn't have bands like Black Dahlia Murder. And if his kid does go, he should feel a little better knowing that his kid won't be around any alcohol or cigarettes (unless he goes outside) and that they have security all over the place.

Plus, Rocketown is moving sometime soon. So if they move too far out of downtown Nashville, more bands may not want to go that far to play there. There are already a lot of bands that don't come here in the first place.

Also, if this guy is so up in arms about the fact that a Christian venue lets these kinds of bands play there, why does he allow his child to listen to this music? Why can he listen to it, but he can't go see the band? Would he prefer his son to go to someplace shadier like The Muse and hear them play? Rocketown is probably one of the safest venues in Nashville.

Lol. I was gonna go to this.

Those parents are ridiculous, but at least Rocketown's getting some publicity.
