If you are a part/fan of the Texas/Red Dirt music scene and feel that every band, singer, and musician makes amazing music and can do no wrong, you should log out immediately. Rita does not want you on her page. The purpose of Rawhide and Velvet is not to blindly kiss every artist’s ass, there are plenty of websites that do that. If you want your Red Dirt information delivered with brutal commentary and biting sarcasm, you are in the right place. Rita does it with style.
Too many of the fans have become brainwashed sheep and have just accepted the fact that their beloved music has become watered down, copycat crap. These bands have started taking themselves way too seriously and so have the fans. Rita is taking a stand. She is bringing you her opinions and wants you to feel free to do the same without the guilt. No one is safe and nothing is sacred.
Nothing in this blog is said to be pure fact and at best it is opinion, rumor, and conjecture. It is her brutally honest look at the “scene” with satire. It is what it is, so enjoy!
A Comment About Comments
Rita is open for comments and WANTS them from anyone. If you think something she posts is not correct or you just don’t agree, let her know! She wants this blog to be fully interactive! Don’t worry, she isn’t afraid of a little confrontation and she WILL let you know when she is wrong.
At the end of the day, she is nothing but a huge music fan. She may not always be nice, but she will be honest about her own useless little opinions, which are subject to change at any time. She isn’t malicious and she has an open mind, she just wants everyone to have a good time.
She doesn’t write or sing, play an instrument or work in the music buisiness…so why would you care what she has to say about music? Exactly.
If you don’t like it, don’t read it.
If I sucked, I wouldn’t like her either.
