Whatever Happened to Attitudes? Woove Reporter Eva Luton Interviews Promoter Brian Zickafoose About Art, Music, and the Future of Attitudes Bar and Cafe.
At the end of the last semester, rumors began to circulate around Blacksburg that Attitudes Bar and Cafe was discontinuing their popular calendar of live music and entertainment acts. In the wake of the closure of local music club The Lantern and a significant decline in the frequency of underground concerts in Blacksburg, such as house shows in basements and living rooms, The Woove staff was eager to find out the truth about the fate of Attitudes. A small team of reporters organized an interview with local music promoter, artist, and cultural figure Brian Zickafoose, who has most recently been responsible for booking shows at the venue. Woove reporter Eva Luton asked Zickafoose about these rumors and about his own career, including his art that appeared on a recent issue of local arts and culture magazine 16 Blocks and his history in promoting music in Blacksburg, especially at the now defunct Lantern.
