Dear Pissed-off person,
I have no ill feelings toward you even after your child-like tantrum. I'm sorry for your confusion and unfulfilled dreams seeing live music in Garema Place. I'm not sure what gave you the impression that we were a live music place. Just because your understanding of the word 'venue' equates to 'live music', does not mean that everyone else sees it the same way, and is incredibly arrogant of you. Step one before you rant – perhaps look up what the word means. In no dictionary does the word 'venue' specifically mean 'live music'. It is in fact defined as a place where people come together to meet (Websters Dictionary).
That said, have you looked inside Playground? Do you really think it could possibly fit a band in there even if we wanted it to? Did you think that we magically tripled the size of the old travel agency that was in there. Ah, I see, you didn't remember that it used to be a travel agency – but you know everything else about Garema Place and what will make it "cool", don't you?
Here's a tip. Think about why Canberra has no real live music venues. The answer is simple. There is not enough of a following to support it and every single live music venue that has opened has failed. Am I wrong? Put your money where your mouth is and open one. Hmmm, bet you've gone very quiet now, haven't you? To quote your own words, "please, for Canberra, prove me wrong".
