I thought this was a fun little news story.  For me the best part is that the adults are bickering like children, making a big deal out of it even sending death threats to each other, yet the boy in question is being the most mature about it basically shrugging his shoulders and saying, "oh well, if I can't play at X venue, I'll just find other venues to play at."  

 Props to Tallan "T-man" Lutz for being da man.  I wish some of the 22-28 year old musicians I've jammed with in recent years displayed his kind of maturity.

Cool kid.
 
 I think as long as it isn't a case of a stage-parent forcing him to book gigs there should be some kinda exception to the rule.  

 Whoever turned him in is a total dick. And should be dick-kicked.
