Anybody here go to this? I wonder if the Brink is now out of the hip-hop business.

I'm sure there's some more interesting aspects to this than what the Cap Times is reporting. And I doubt Jjoyce is advocating for the removal of all Hip Hop from our bars. Could be worse. Rob could have used those superior hip hop lungs for bong hits or something. Scandal.

Am I not raising a legit point?

Let me make it clear that I have only respect for Rob, which is why this particular development is noteworthy. What was going on at the Brink the other night for one of the nicest, most positive guys to end up in handcuffs?

Also, the history of hip-hop in this town suggests that when a place like the Brink gets some unwanted attention from the police, they examine their booking approach.

Does anyone have a pun for "massacre"?

it reads to me like two women got in a fight and Rob tried to to break it up and/or talk the police out of arresting someone.
Sometimes the police don't appreciate peacemakers.
No big deal.

Well-according to madison.com The Brink is now banning hip hop shows-sounds like a big deal to me

Sorry that wasn't clear.

They were probably wearing thug clothing, therefore deserved it (see Copps profiling thread for irony/sarcasm check).

I really hope that Brinks reconsiders their decision to not book hip hop shows. There must be some way that incidents like this can be prevented. If musicians, promoters, and club owners brain storm they could come up with some reasonable security policies. And the Police need to come up with better methods of handling incidents like this. The hip hop community has to do its part too in getting the message out that they have to act like adults.

Be cool peoples.
