Daley’s War Against Rock

“With nary a word of public notice – and with no public hearings seeking input from the Chicago music community – the City Council Committee on License and Consumer Protection was set to meet again today in its rush to push through a new ‘promoters’ ordinance’ initially proposed last year and only delayed at the last minute when music activists caught wind,” Jim DeRogatis writes at his Sun-Times blog in “The City Tries Again To Legislate Clubland.”

DeRogatis has written frequently about how unfriendly – to put it kindly – City Hall is towards the city’s local music industry, despite how fruitful and enriching it is. Let’s face it, Mayor Daley simply does not rock – and does not like those who do.
