San Diego rock band Wavves are taking a stand against having ignorant people attend their upcoming summer tour with a concert ban directed at specific groups. Band member Nathan Williams shared a lengthy statement on Twitter, where he says:
"I don't want everyone at my shows to be a clone of each other. However in light of the constant rape, murder, racism, homophobia and misogyny that goes on seemingly every day I feel the need to make clear who I personally make music for, and who I don't."
Williams then goes on write a detailed list of six types of people who aren't allowed at Wavves concerts. They include: #AllLivesMatter supporters, police defenders, Trump supporters, people who blame rape victims, homophobes and racist white people:
“id rather have a room half filled with good energy than one filled with hate. people are suffering every day and the way i see it you are either part of the solution or part of the problem.”
