I can't believe I'm still defending a negative comment about AIC '12, but I feel like I should clarify the mouth breather business. The current version of AIC has been playing places like Bayfest and Rock on the Range, where the audience is heavily made up of the kind of aggro-dudes who listen to "active rock" radio and tailgate heavily whenever Skynyrd passes through the local shed. If that last sentence doesn't describe you, then ignore the mouth breather comment.
Beale Street always has a Godsmack or two on the lineup, and it looks like AIC is taking one of those spots this year.
You were totally on target, Pd. Look at past line-ups. They've always catered to the cock-rock, backhair-metal crowd. Just read some of the dreadful desired acts suggested by the old regulars on their FB page... "Who the hell is My Morning Wood, where's my Nickleback add??" Mouthbreathers was the proper terminaology.

There's no need to defend your comment. I agree with it and it was relevant. But the real point is that Beale St. music fest is really not that much of a step up from Bayfest and Rock on the Range. They just happened to get MMJ last year. And we all know how everyone here is in love with that band.
I was just making the point that lumping AiC into the mouth breather bands is too borderline and maybe they don't deserve that flogging. The music is still enjoyable live according to caddy even with the new guys.
