Re: “Review: Wilco @ Johnny Mercer Theatre

Though this was a nice review,I feel it is slightly out of touch. This was not a hippy crowd and not a hippy band. Most people in attendance at the show were neither stoned (as you insinuate) nor belligerently drunk. Bands like Wilco attract a mostly intelligent and respectful audience. It is also normal for the audience to stand the entire time. As for the idea that the people in the crowd had no idea what the Savannah Music Festival is about, I say you are extremely wrong. Most students/young people in town are very well aware of the festival, and for years have been wondering why promoters haven't tried harder to cater to this group of creative people itching to go to some great concerts. The fact that Wilco sold out and there is buzz around town about great indie acts at the festival this year is absolute proof that festival promoters are FINALLY getting it. Market to students/young people, bring in bands they like and can afford, and don't worry if they clap at the lady who says "Savannah Music Festival" before the show. The success will be in ticket sales and an overall feeling that the festival is finally catching up with the times!
