How funny that the Kights would saw holes in the wall of Grant Street Dancehall, because that's what the venue was ' a hole in the wall ("," Jan. 11). I'm very happy that the Kights are done with Grant Street.

After my band Cattlehead was promised an opening spot for the next big show to come to the venue, and after we headlined a gig there to raise over $1,000 for Hurricane Katrina relief, I never got a response. I had to go through Cowboy Mouth to get the big opening spot in October 2005. The Kights tried kicking us off of the bill for an acoustic opener due to "technical constraints," but booking management for Cowboy Mouth took a stand for us. The night of the gig, a Cowboy Mouth roadie apologized for the small space on stage for us to play, but they were told they had an acoustic opener. We played a flawless show that night and helped sell lots of tickets, and we were rewarded by Grant Street management with zero dollars in pay.

Thanks for 25 great years, Grant Street, minus three.
