Quick synopsis: I wrote a column saying CenPho's music scene was dying as Tempe rises up, a bunch of people freaked out, someone even printed an ironic t-shirt mocking my column. The situation blew up over the weekend (we hear reports of "Fuck Martin Cizmar!" Fuck New Times!" and "Downtown is Not Dead!" being screamed from the stage at Shizzfest this weekend). Here's the drama as reported by several dozen Phoenicians on phones.
