In light of recent events I feel as tho I need to remind people of who I am and what I stand for and believe in. I'm a Jamaican/English/German biracial woman with "Jewish" heritage that plays guitar in a rock and roll band! I am NOT a Nazi sympathizer, I don't Aline myself with Nazi sympathizers and neither are any of the members of the band I'm playing guitar for! It's absolutely ridiculous and sad that this situation had been blown way out of proportion. ONE guy, just one asshole of a guy came to our show in New Hampshire wearing an anti communist patch on his jacket and what was revealed later to be a small skull SS patch that was actually hard to see.
I was the first witness to the entire incident with Sveltanas and this person. I fully support the Svetlanas. There was a lot of chaos at that club with a few fights breaking out and sveltanas freaking out. I tried my best to calm the situation and get this person kicked out of the club so that ALL of the bands could continue with the show. Unfortunately, that did not happen. Not the bands fault either. This person kept assuring EVERYONE at the club that he was NOT a Nazi, he said he fought for this country and just didn't like communist. It wasn't until the next day that we found out the guy was a huge lier! He and his friends sent death threats to Sveltanas and they did not feel safe to continue the tour. He obviously wanted to start shit and he did! So he's won! All of you who think the band I'm with supports this person and his ideology need to wake the hell up!!! Yes, things could've been handled much better especially if there was less chaos that night and not a language barrier but it's over and done with. No point reliving the past. Just be better in the future. We have to move on! The band has apologized to Sveltanas and 57! They DO NOT allow hate of any kind at the shows and will not work with that venue ever again! Why would a band with a biracial girl support Nazis?! We are on Sveltanas side! FUCK Nazis! We just want to play music and spread positivity. I would NEVER allow myself to be in a position with people who weren't on the same page. If you truly know me and our my FRIEND I'd hope you would-
