Pimp My Symphony!


In the interest of starting yet another argument, allow me to pose the following question:

How do you feel about Nashville’s brand new, classy symphony hall … with a Cadillac for sale parked in the fuckin common area of the front? Because that’s what I encountered this evening.

It’s not been, what, two weeks? a month? since the Symphony Hall opened? And it’s already a car sales lot. Great. Thanks. This really makes me proud. I bet Beethoven would have totally loved the deluxe cup-holders and extreme handlebars on the new Cadillac SUV-de-ville. I feel so much more cultured, now that we have our new symphony hall. While I’ve got you here, would you be interested in some car insurance or tire rotations? No, really. Because, I really don’t think Nashville has enough places to sell things — I’m really glad that we’re using our new symphony hall as a car-sales lot. It’s totally awesome. I think this conveys an awesome message to people that visit Nashville: we sell everything. For cheap. Just ask. Want some space on stage? We can move the violas out of the way. [insert viola joke here]

    I realize this is ironic considering who wrote this post, but God bless ya, Chris for writing this.

    Corporate sponsors are one thing, but corporate pimping shouldn’t get this kind of ride.

    Yeah, I wasn’t real impressed with that, either.

    However, the free day was a brilliant idea (babies, rude people, and loud disposable cameras notwithstanding). Honestly, I thought that the car was out there for that day only. Kind of unforunate for people who pay large sums of money to attend the symphony.
