Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor announced today that Arcade Fire has been added to the 2014 Machias Savings Bank Concert Series. I’ve been a huge fan since discovering them a few years ago, and even more so now after the release of Reflektor. But not everyone else feels this way… The Waterfront Pavilion’s posts about the show have been plagued with complaints by those who either weren’t familiar with the band or were just looking for another “country show”. I was even called a “tool” for my comment that simply stated that I was excited that the band would be visiting the city of Bangor.
I think my opinion is as valid as any other person’s BUT what I think many are forgetting is the fact that not everything was made for us (or you) in mind. There are so many different demographics targeted in today’s music and it’d be a load of crap if it were all created with the goal of pleasing everyone.
TL;DR - Try to have a bit of toleration when you cross paths with something that you don’t particularly like, you tool.
