"They don't even let you load in from the back door," says Crime in America bassist Eric Marcrum about Scolari's. He says the band will no longer play the North Park bar because of inconvenience, a pay issue, and....
"During our last gig there, between songs, I asked the bartender for some beers for the band, from the stage.... She started yelling, 'You're not allowed to call out the bartender on the microphone,' even though we do that all the time and we were telling people all night to tip her."
Marcrum says that as his band was loading out, "[The bartender] was getting all in our face and saying, 'You don't have that big of a draw.' Our drummer Nate said, 'We'll never play here again; you guys suck,' and she yelled out, 'You guys are 86'd; you're never coming back.' "
Crime in America appears Saturday, July 22, at Joe 'N Andy's in La Mesa.
