Since we’ve been away, we haven’t been able to cover this like we wanted to. A few days ago, the man pictures above, Wes Breedwell, was fired from the music venue Rocketown in Nashville, TN after working there for 7 years.
The cause? He wore a Hostage Calm t-shirt that says “I support same sex-marriage.” Rocketown, a Christian-owned venue, is not a church, or any such other place of worship, but Wes was fired because he displayed beliefs that “contradicted the mission” of the venue.

What are your thoughts?
PPS: Sparks The Rescue will ALSO be moving their show in Nashville due to this.
This song… and this band. Wow. It’s been like 48ish hours since I discovered them, and they’re tied with All Time Low as my favorite band.
Sucks that they’re from Arizona though. I bet they’re never going to come anywhere close to Chapel Hill anytime soon.
It’s seriously so cool that there are people who feel this way about my band and the music we work so hard on. Really, thank you.
reason141 asked: Shane, thanks for taking the time to sign the guitar frame for me. Your show was great. You made some new fans out of my wife and I. From one rhythm guitar player to another, you held your own with the big bands. Great effects too. You'll have to tell me some pedal secrets. Thanks again.
Thanks a lot! I’m glad you guys enjoyed the show. I really only use one delay pedal and a distortion pedal, nothing too fancy!
We rarely ever reblog anything, but this is definitely worth reading. Music isn’t about fashion or the same genre touring together, it’s about coming together as a community for the one love of music.
This message is something that everyone needs to read, learn, and realize, and if you pertain to those kids who are pretentious enough to talk smack on a band’s Facebook wall instead of appreciating that Lionheart gets to play a big show and go to flipping Hawaii, then you should really reevaluate what you’re doing.
