I'm afraid my original letter to Isthmus regarding Mr. Albertoni's column's in the April 16th issue was so poorly edited for print some of my original purpose for writing it was loss. The "out-of-date press release" was in reference to the Exene Cervenka column, not the piano guy. Anyone who has even dabbled their toe in the indie music scene knows the generic formatting of those releases. When you combine that with painfully obvious wrong facts you can tell somebody was not even trying. The juxtaposition of that with the story of the piano guy seemed more like a slap in the face for some local musicians who have started to see their hard work pay off.
In regards to Mr. Albertoni's reply, he proves that he's missing the point. I'm not saying that the piano guy isn't "worthy of a story". I'm saying Mr. Albertoni's priorities as local music reporter seem misguided.
Just felt I needed to clarify. thnaks for your time
