Default Why not the Metro?

Why is Billy avoiding the Metro? Did they have a falling out with Shanahan?

Because Aragon is like 4 times the size of the Metro and they can make more money.

Must have had a falling out, because someone asked a question on instagram about the Metro and he made some snide remark recently.

More like the other way around. Who knows if SP would have even got signed if not for Joe Shanahan passing the demo tape on to contacts he had at labels.

Didn't they play there a few years ago when Mike Byrne was in the band? I seem to reall Billy playing one of his very old Pre-Gish era Fender Mustang guitars

I’ve wondered at times if they haven’t played there because Billy had been waiting to have the 4 original members back together—a sort of psychological healing for himself, an attempt to be poetic about coming full circle from 1988 and redo what he thinks should have happened in 2000. When having Darcy back imploded last year, perhaps it negatively affected his mood re: booking a reunion show at Metro.

Someone should just hit up Shanahan and ask.

Billy seems to have a falling out with every entity he's ever been involved with.
