Even though it isn't the reason for the split, I really think there may be some validity to what I said re: the BR music scene.
I dont disagree that the location isn't the best, but I believe the smaller crowds are more due to the type of artists he is booking (not household names/BR favs) and goes more to the taste (or knowledge) of the average BR music fan... A lot of the names wouldn't be huge draws in bigger cities. That said, I would applaud him for his willingness to bring these in, as well as some of the big draws he has wrangled away from the conventional BR venues.
I don't doubt that location may play in to some peoples plans... or for the occasional pop in.. But by and large, if someone wants see a show, I don't think the location is a big issue...
