I kind of like the way that we all stay off each other’s backs. When you have a tight, organized scene, you’re bound to have a group of people that controls the action and a group of people who are outside that action. People are denied access to the groupthink, rival sub-scenes are formed, SCENE WARS break out… how lame. Thanks to the laid-back attitude we all seem to have here in Houston, practically noone feuds wit anyone else. Mixed-genre billings at clubs (all though a bit disorganized) let club patrons enjoy a great variety of talent, allows influences to be spread between different musicians, and keeps it all (mostly) clique-free. Let’s hear it for us!
