Message in a bottle?
In addition to a great headline (Wrapped Around Your Billfold: The Police in Charlottesville) and a general thumbs-up for The Police concert on Tuesday night, Style Weekly's music reviewer Brent Baldwin raised an interesting question about drinking at JPJ shows.
"...can someone please tell me why," writes Baldwin, " if the venue is not allowed to sell alcohol (being a state school), everyone has to watch employees peddling kegs of beer into the private hospitality suites all night long? What's the message here? Responsible VIPs, or corporate sponsors, get to enjoy a little beer with their rock and roll, while commoners can suck on flat Pepsi and warmed over Domino's pizza? I'm sorry, but that sucks, and not just for alcoholics."
