Both Fireworks and Transit members have tweeted pretty damning statements about the Empire venue in Springfield, VA. From what we've been able to piece together, it looks like the promoter used hateful speech -- and then shit hit the fan. We've reached out to try and find out exactly what happened.

Update: A statement about everything that happened, from Floyd James, can be found here.

Twitter (and AP.net) user ivogoossens is attempting to build a book of "punk rock wisdom" quotes and would like your help putting it together. Basically, he'd like your favorite song lyrics/quotes that contain "wisdom" from any band that is kind of related to this scene. From AFI to Fall Out Boy, to Misfits, Ramones, Social Distortion, All Time Low, Yellowcard. So, if you've got one - tweet at him!

Rachel from He Is We is tweeting some interesting things: "The statement released was not completely accurate. I have never met Stevie Scott and she never reached out to me. This feels so fake & sad." and "I feel like He Is We has taken a very superficial and commercial turn. I'm tired of being quiet. I have shame flowing through my veins." .. followed by, "ashamed of the industry. i haven't heard from my band in 2 weeks." and, "its like they're using my illness to get you guys to see the shows. i have NOTHING to do with this and its feeling so fake."

Update: More keep coming in ...

Message from FrancesWhile I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I'm in a monogamous relationship and very happy.
