Random Quote

"I don't know if it's just Gainesville, maybe it's the whole country, but there are few places where you can go into a club and actually hear musicians doing things, playing rock. 'I'm into jazz, I'm past rock & roll.' That's a fairly common excuse. Rock music is just pretty rare these days."
