Serious question: How would you feel if you found a good friend of yours was affiliating themselves with someone you (and many others) know to be a legit piece of shit?
A small time promoter in FL was accused and found proven of domestic abuse, blackmail, and selling his gf's nudes to pay his show guarantees (didn't have an actual job). He also set up a benefit show for his best friend who commited suicide, to help pay for funeral costs, and he bailed on the family and took off with the 800 raised. As you would imagine he is hated by all of FL, as well as SC where he's from. Apparently he's back putting on some local scale fest called "Make Florida Mosh Again" (Original, I know). I feel conflicted on one of my closest friend's bands playing it, especially considering they've been outspoken about abuse in the past and in the music. Part of me wants to separate myself entirely from everyone involved, but I also wonder if I'm over thinking it.
Went to hang with my friend after work, whom I've known most of my life and consider like a little sister. Three hours ago she picked me up and when we got back to her house, and we found her younger sister dead in the bathroom with razor cuts all down her wrists. She was someone I helped babysit for years before I had my traveling job, and I'm still not exactly sure how to process this. She was only 18.
