      Scion used to do free shows at the knitting factory in LA before the venue closed for very underground metal bands. The shows would range between the subgenres from doom, death, and black metal. It was weird, I'll admit, to see the scion name associated with these gigs and the first one I went to I was expecting some rep to talk about the brand before the show or in between bands but there was none of that. And it was awesome. Because they were simply supporting art. And the art they were supporting was the type that gets very little to no support. The bands were Always US bands as far as I can remember. 2 bands to a bill with nearly full set times. All you had to do was RSVP online. They didn't even spam me with newsletters. Was truly a pain free process. And the money I didn't have to pay foe my ticket went t the venue in the form of beer purchases. Some bands i never had heard till i went to these shows. Since then when those bands have cone back in regular tours I gone to some of their shows and supported their acts with actual ticket purchases. All around win win. Except maybe for scion.... as I have no desire to buy a new car. But I do mention it to folks who are in the market. Its strange really, this thing they do with metal, but its nice to see the genre getting support and the bands they work with not being generic mainstream metal. Hip hop, rap, electronic, etc would be more suited but there's already a lot of support for those.

        Definite props to Scion for putting money into music. Just weird. But hey, I give them credit for trying. The biggest barrier to getting young people buying brand new cars is jobs. -Dan
