Anyone going to this? I was planning on flying in to SF for RITP, but honestly am very very disappointed they pulled Capelton from the line up. I am questioning if I should even make the effort to fly out.

I could change my flight to Sac if someone could give me a ride to SF on Friday.

a) they pulled capleton from reggae in the park? how come? if the tour fell apart then im thinking the csus gig isnt far behind.

b) im certainly going to this at csus. ive not heard anything about it happening or not happening and a recent bike ride through the campus didnt reveal any info eg: posters. but i figured it was too early. how about someone call the associated students at that number i posted here? i got it by looking up csus associated students office.

good luck on the ride xacto.

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 14, 2004 04:48PM
i wouldnt bet my life on that solid. they probably havent updated it for current situation. im thinking that if capleton is off the sf thing, then they (the tour) will probably skip sf altogether and that means they will probably skip sacto too. thats just me guessing though. if thats so then i would expect associated students csus to not even have that info because it is likely to be done at the last moment. and once it gets generally known the reason capleton isnt in sf, im thinking the ever PC csus is liable to cancel him for the same reason. i mean, they killed the chickens too, probably because it gave off the "wrong image" to all the fat cat athletic supporters (local reference no one is likely to get).

maybe not though. got my fingers crossed.

special of the week in the csus cafeteria "FRESCO!! pollo tacos 3/$1.00". and according to the reggae in the park site - culture is now playing in place of capelton. i think sunday will still be a good show with cocoa tea and culture. maybe sack state will replace capelton with culture too.

well just because they're not getting paid now for that previously-booked SF date it doesn't mean they're not getting paid in Sac, then Arcata, then Chico.

i'll still bet on them picking up those checks.

(obigatory nefarious wink)

but have fun in thailand, i was going to go there this year as well (after sanjays nepal thing fell through) but im going to stay stateside for now and go to jamaica in december for this big toots and the maytals 40th anniversary shindig in ochi that i got invited to.

me and sanjay will hail up cocoa tea for you though!

Alright let's do this. SNWMF board posters who are gonna be at the Sac show let's meet up at the CSUS show.

Before for a beer in the student union?

After at Socal's or somewhere near for a beer?

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 15, 2004 12:55AM
Sounds great to me. I love beer. I love reggae. Two great things coming together.
Student Union only serves beer at Round Table. There is also beer served at the Pub inside the Student Market Place.
But I guess what is more important, is there going to be a show and what day and time is it? Hopefully it won't be on a Wednesday. I have class until 8:45pm. I'd have to miss class.
Cheers!
Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea

keep it rollin' jjlab3 - these "meetings" seem to lose steam. there are too many sack area posters to not have a meeting sometime. beer before, beer after sounds alrighty.

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 15, 2004 05:30PM
Still says the 30th is on at the CSUS web site. I know that does not mean much with last second cancellations possible.

I agree these meetings lose steam.

I don't know how familiar any of you are with Sac but Socal's Tavern is a mellow place near Sac State. 51st and Folsom Blvd.

Show is listed to start at 7:30pm. Anyone want to meet a Socal's at 6pm?

There are many other pubs near that we can hit up afterwards.

Post if you are in.

Thanks Solid,

> you better get your radio fixed!
Yeah, I haven't even gotten around to that one yet. I'm never home on the weekends, working every festival for the past few months, and with 18 units, forget about it, no time for music during the week. Now that I'm "new in town" again, what are all the reggae timeslots on KZFR?

Have you talked with Ajamu about the Capleton show? I'm kinda surprised that he isn't stuck in that same politically correct/educational institution spot. Maybe the higher-ups at CSUC are too clueless about reggae and music in general to pay any attention. Props to Ajamu, or whoever is doing the work, if it happens!

And about Thailand, right on, have a great time!!

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 15, 2004 10:11PM
jahbill - it sounds to me like you think there will be cancellations of gigs due to lyrical content. in your opinion - how many artists will this actually affect? it appears to me that only the most blatant artists have been cxd so far.
jjlab3
Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 15, 2004 10:20PM
Yes J.B. I think we get that there is a possibility of cancellation due to lyrical content. I have been keeping my eyes and ears peeled for articles or news broadcasts that the gay community is opposing Capleton's CSUS show. Especially since it is at a public location.

But all we can do is hope the show goes on. Capleton's statement of apology seems to address the issue.

So do you want to meet us for a beer at Socal's or what? It would be great to be enlightened by the all knowing J.B. over a pint.

It has not been very good for reggae around here recently. I haven't seen anyone post yet about the Lutan Fyah/Norris Man/ Johnny Osbourne show being cancelled at Ashkenaz last Sunday. I drove all the way down from Sebastopol and the whole thing was a no-show. Supposedly neither the performers nor their bands people even contacted the venue. Terrible! The reggae world sometimes operates like the boxing world. Just when you start feeling that you can get into it again, it lets you down. In boxing's case it is controversial decisions, but with reggae it's no-shows and cancellations.

hate to tell you i told you so, but i told you so.

it only stands to reason: capleton is the main guy of the tour. if he isnt allowed to perform theres zero chance the tour will stick around. ergo: no coco tea.

im still holding my corner on the csus show. im batting 1000 so far, i hope i break my streak with csus.

zana too bad youre engaged. i like single drunk girls best.

(only because they listen dont ya know...or if not listen exactly at least sit there staring into space which passes for "listening" for me most of the time)

The jo show was listed on Ashkenaz's calendar for only $12 and I believe Chimino had a thread going about it too. I was expecting to see you there Bill.

I called the info line for the CSUS show and was told that as far as they knew it was still on. We'll have to wait and see if this holds true until that day.

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 17, 2004 07:20PM
what drama would that be jj?

anyhow i think it very ironic that they are picking on capleton. last i saw him (at reggae on the river) it didnt seem to me he was frothing at the mouth or anything. seemed he was pretty toned down. i didnt hang on every word but i dont think i even heard him refer to batty business though a friend of mine said he did make some comments, but nothing necessarily violent. and i recorded his show at snwmf last year and i dont hear anything too terribly objectionable on that, its not like he is crying out for murder or anything, just the usual "fire bun" business which isnt so far off what you hear in a baptist church on sunday. so, as usual, these guys are a day late and a dollar short but they get the publicity and it gets a life of its own at that point. im thinking there is nothing on earth that capleton or beenie or bounty or any of those guys could do at this point to ease the situation so if i were them i wouldnt even try. stay authentic and eventually the grief will subside and meanwhile you can at least claim to naw bow down.
