Anything Violet Isle related
called in a bomb threat earlier
The Ike Box to me is the real deal. In a town where you get a lot of either over the top cliches or pissed off teen angst, Ike Box is one of Salem's saving graces. Its clean aesthetics and friendly staff really make it inviting. Its a place I know I can catch a great show almost any weekend. But if there's anything to be said to the contrary, the Ike Box could look into getting OLCC'd and bringing in the 21+ crowd on occasion. Though all in all I feel it is one of the hand full of places that is helping Salem step out of Portland's shadow and grow into its own thriving community.
I feel like with anything trending Arcade Fire is in the cross-hairs of the music industry's scope and could get over used and thrown away, quickly. I love this band and would hate to see it. But Indie is becoming widely accepted and it is a very slippery slope now for any indie band.
Alva, over and out!
