The shit hits the fan, ie the controversy over Harley's "treatment" of Yuyintang staff and equipment hits the SUS2 forums in a thread titled 抵制哈雷酒吧的一切演出, "Boycott All Performances At Harley's Bar":

个人觉得发生这种事是每个喜欢摇滚的人都不愿的看到的...
没有想到原来哈雷这帮人都是抱着鄙视摇滚听众...鄙视地下音乐的态度在做演出...
竟然无端扣押育音堂的设备...
反正早就不满意哈雷酒吧很久了...
那就彻底毁了他...
以后出现的任何关于给哈雷酒吧做演出的宣传帖子一律鄙视...
任何关于酒吧的宣传活动一律鄙视...

Personally, I think every fan of rock is afraid of this kind of thing happening...
I never would have guessed it would be the thugs at Harley's that look down on rock fans... and look down on underground rock concerts...
They keep Yuyintang's equipment hostage...
Anyways, I've been dissatisfied with Harley's for a while now...
Let's just boycott them...
Likewise, let's frown on any announcemtns for concerts at Harley's...
And any events at bars, for that matter...

See, Yuyintang had teamed up with the owner of Harley's ("Rambo", hehe) to hold their concerts on Harley's stage. But Harley's music equipment is pretty low quality, so Yuyintang in the form of Hai Sheng of Ark fame brought in a bunch of their own/borrowed equipment to supplement Harley's original stuff. Then on the 27th of August after the Cold Fairyland/Hanggai concert, the bands had gone out to dinner and the staff at Harley's started calling Hai Sheng to come back and do the sound for a party afterwards that was not run by Yuyintang. Well Hai Sheng declined, and the Harley staff was not happy with this. So when Hai Sheng came back to pick up some equipment to take back with him, he got into a scuffle with a bunch of Harley folk, including Rambo, and ended up with some minor injuries to his face (that I saw myself). Not only that, but in the end he didn't get the equipment back.

Anyways, that's the story I heard from Hai Sheng, Lin Di, and Asa.

Of course, I lend my support. And write this post. Harley's big birthday bash is coming up on the 10th. Guess whether I'll be going.
