Lies, Damn Lies and Pollstar: The Schwag actually coming to Remmington’s Downtown

But it all seemed so plausible!

But it all seemed so plausible!

We figured this was the case, but the opportunity to speculate at the thought of Grateful Dead tribute group The Schwag at young-Christian haven Remington’s on Republic Road was just too good to pass up. However, commenter Abby D. set the record straight:

“It’s actually at Remmington’s Downtown. Check downtownlivemusic.com for the most accurate list of dates.

“Most EVERY single booking agent still has the wrong address in their system, no matter how many times we try to tell them to fix it, they it doesn’t seem to get done. At the Unearth show a couple of days ago, the same thing happened. The bands showed up at the wrong venue, booked their hotels out there, and even had their merch shipped there too.

“Same goes for a lot of the concert/event websites, their databases still say Republic Road address and they never get around to fixing it.

“Good story though! When I was doing booking for DLM, I had to clear up that confusion a lot, sometimes with our own staff even. Most fliers didn’t say “Downtown” and sometimes the Remmington’s name would have one M instead of two depending on who made the ad.”

This suggests a failure on more than one level, which is unsurprising though still disappointing. We can only hope Pollstar will take note of such SNAFUs and take action to correct them. But frankly, a Grateful Dead reunion seems more likely at this point.
