Work environment etiquette 101: DO not reveal your political or religious views while at work.
This is also a good idea. Despite how wrong they are, don't give them a reason.

Wes emphasized that employees routinely wear band shirts at Rocketown. So why did this shirt cause such a problem?

There is a big difference between wearing a band shirt and wearing a shirt that, at least in this day and age, amounts to making a political statement.

I mean, its all very likely that there is a double standard here, but I'd rather wait and see all the facts before jumping to any conclusions. If there wasn't any sort of dress code and other people routinely wore political shirts then of course this is a problem. If there were clear guidelines on what to wear / not wear then the guy is just an idiot who was looking for trouble.

I remember this venue as the free cigarette venue. They confiscated underage kids' smokes at the door and would let the bands playing split them up. Sorry off subject.

The rockettown in south florida is just as strict. i almost was denied acess to a vanna show(funny they let bands like that play there) because one of the employees saw me drinking at a near by brus room.

Rocketown management, you operate under despicable and backwards principles. Good luck booking future shows, ya ding-bats.

I really find Hostage Calm's stance annoying, and I'm all for equality. When I saw them they played for 20 minutes and ranted about this for 30 minutes. Then I couldn't just buy a Hostage Calm shirt, all they had was the "I Support Same Sex Marriage" stuff. I just think it's kind of an abuse of their platform. Plus their music is pretty uninspired and makes me think they just do it for this kind of thing.
