I can't blame you at all for feeling that way. I get down on the folks in this neck of the woods, too, when shows get poor turnouts and shit like that. It's like, if you have something worthwhile, you have to protect it and give a shit about it and show some gratitude - not sit on your hands and expect the world to be given to you on a silver platter because you "deserve" it simply by virtue of living in a relatively large metro area.
