Wealthy Posers

RECEIVED Mon., March 24, 2014

Dear Editor,
    I have been in the Austin area since I relocated from Arizona in 2002. I have been around, lived on both coasts, but I am a Texan by conception. The issue I have is with the wealthy posers known as World Class Capital Group. They throw around money and buy up places like Katz's and La Zona Rosa. I worked at La Zona Rosa for a number of years and everyone I know who has ever been involved in the real La Zona misses the shows, the fun, and the music community. Now the posers that own Rio Rooftop have allegedly been withholding employees' tips. And now the greatest sin of all: They have removed the La Zona Rosa signs and replaced them with a poser mural. This garbage depicts the history of La Zona Rosa with a likeness of Austin god Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, and Gary Clark Jr. None of them, to the best of my knowledge, has performed at La Zona Rosa. They are raping the Austin music scene, and we let them.
