After singer Michelle Shocked went on an anti-gay tirade during a show in San Francisco on Sunday, almost every venue canceled her tour dates â€“ including the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
The Harmony Bar & Grill in Madison is the only venue that has not canceled on Shocked.
I called tonight and asked an employee if The Harmony was planning to cancel Shockedâ€™s show, scheduled for May 4.
"The owner is out of the country. He has no idea whatâ€™s going on. I really think heâ€™ll cancel the show, but itâ€™s not my place to make the call until he returns," he says.
Some of what Shocked said has been taken out of context by the media, perhaps, but it is undeniably homophobic.
"I was at a prayer meeting yesterday, and you gotta appreciate how scared folks on that side of the equation are. I mean, from their vantage point, and I really shouldn't say 'their' because it's mine too, we are nearly at the end of time. And from our vantage point we're gonna be, uh â€¦ once Prop 8 gets instated, and once preachers are held at gunpoint and forced to marry the homosexuals, then I'm pretty sure that will be the signal for Jesus to come on back."
She later told a perplexingly offensive story about a trip to Guatemala.
Câ€™mon, Harmony. Track down the owner. Pull the plug on Shocked.
Typical Self-Hater. She's too uncomfortable in her own sexuality that she can't live in her own skin. Just wake up tomorrow and be glad you're not her.
MADISON HAD BETTER CANCEL THIS SHOW. It would be a disgrace to Wisconsin. Also, it is far more likely that Christ was Gay or Bi-sexual. What if He returns and says he is Gay? More evidence in the original ( NOT in badly written translations) Bible leans to His being Gay and not straight or at least Bi.
