I asked for a report from Music Midtown and got, amongst others, this copy of a letter to the AJC:
>The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
>I was appalled to note your Music Midtown coverage on Sunday referring
>to the large turnout at the Locals Only Stage as a "random act of

>into an oafish insult. I don't suppose it's possible that the quality
>of the local acts presented might be enough to draw a listener or two.
>I guess it never crossed anyone mind that just maybe this could be
>reported as evidence of the dedication both artists and audience have to
>creating and supporting a vibrant Atlanta music scene. For a paper that
>is a shameless promoter of things Atlantan, you might examine how they

>I didn't like playing live enough to make it worthwile to put up with
>losers like him.
>Kendall -The Velvet Overkill 5
