I missed Doomtree the 1 time they finally came to Dallas, TX because I slept on buying tickets early. They were opening for the Flobots and the place sold out.........and i guarantee the place wasn't too full for me and my wife to sneak in and sneak out before the Flobots came on. I'm pretty sure no one showed up for Doomtree.

And for that, I will never like the Flobots. assfaces.

I believe I was the only one doing what could be considered "shit talking." Is it shit talking if I call them Flobites? I can't not call them that. That being said, I'm glad that they're willing to give PFA a large audience to perform in front of. That's mighty nice.

I was always under the impression the "Flobites" did something of value in this community. Probably not the hip-hop community, though.

They can ride their bike with no handlebars. I, for one, am very impressed by that contribution to whatever community they are lumped in with.

Yeah, they have an organization that does a good amount of political and charity work. I was at a party thing for a farmworker solidarity movement (re: Chipotle and Sodexco not agreeing to the higher wage for tomato pickers that other fast food companies did) 2 weeks ago. They're good people, I just don't like their music. It makes sense for them to be playing with PFA regardless of their musical value, definitely on the same wavelength.

There are much shittier acts who aren't very good people that you all can be hating on instead.

lazy people call it "hating." haha.
I'm glad to hear that they're doing positive stuff. That doesn't mean that I can listen to their songs and think, "Mmmm...cool...they're making a difference." All I hear is flobites. Haven't seen or heard from the main dude since he was going to Providence poetry readings back in the day. I am definitely impressed that he's part of something that was put through the machine and they were able to finagle some extra-curricular work out of it.

I always liked Johnny 5 as a person- knew him back from when he lived in Providence. He worked for a non-profit out here called Youth In Action and we went to a lot of the same protests. Hearing Flobots on line did not have me excited at all, but seeing them absolutely kill it live in front of 10,000 people right before Rage at the DNC changed the way I looked at their project. Their set that night was undeniable. And they advocated so clearly and honestly for the IVAW and the non-violent, but aggressive nature of the action planned for the day. I certainly couldn't have done it better.

In addition to that, they were at the DNC all week, hosting events, encouraging people to get involved, talking to people of all ages about the issues, and passing out info about indy media and the IVAW. I was very impressed.

After that, I went back and re-listened to their songs and read-up on what they're doing with Fight With Tools. I've got a lot of respect for what they've been able to do, and we're super appreciative for the opportunity.

They're like the Black Eyed Peas mixed with the Partridge Family.

Why do you refer to flobots as "flobites?" I just wanna know where the dislike is coming from.
