    How in the hell can this venue support "The Pretenders" and have their lead singer Chrissie Hynde wearing a PETA shirt and advocate burning down McDonald's and slaughter houses??? Doesn't she realize that farmers raise beef, chicken and other critters for meat as well as growing her apparent beloved vegetables???
