Things To Do In San Diego: February 15, 2010

Holy cow. There is so much going on this week and I've found that I way overcommitted, so I'm gonna have to attack my calendar and weed out a couple things, but I'm looking forward to the Zatarain's Mardi Gras party at HoB, Suzanne Vega, The Damned, Bob Schneider and maybe some pieces of the Sunset Sessions. I'm also happy I won tickets from FM94/9 to see Fanfarlo...I enter all the time and never win. I'll get to posting some videos from the past weekend later on, but till then, here's to kickin off your week.

You can find out about Capleton and his homophobic songs in the "Dancehall Dossier" http://tinyurl.com/2xax3b

Capleton signed the Reggae Compassionate Act form in 2007. He agreed, by signing this form, not to promote hatred and violence. You can see Capleton's signed RCA form at http://www.petertatchell.net/popmusic/reggaecompassionateact-capleton.htm

Before the end of 2007 he violated his Reggae Compassionate Act agreement. As a consequence he had performances canceled in Basel, Switzerland and in France in 2008.

This PDF file has information about Capleton's violation of his RCA agreement and points to a YouTube video where you can actually hear him break his RCA agreement http://tinyurl.com/y873vtm

You have to listen very carefully for lines like: "Battyman fi dead di yuth em right bout that" ("Faggots must die. The youth are right about that.")

Capleton is a performer who has promoted hatred, violence and murder.

In February 2010, Capleton had his performances canceled in California in Arcata, San Luis Obispo, San Diego, Oakland and Long Beach. A performance in Crystal Bay, Nevada was also canceled.

Mainly because of religion ("[Jamaica] is a Bible society"), Jamaica is an extremely homophobic country, as are some other former British colonies. Sex between consenting male adults is illegal in Jamaica, with an up to 10 year prison term for conviction.
