The Sitka Summer Music Festival May Be As Disappointing As Coachella

morecrabsthankimberlystewart.jpgI already canceled my hotel reservations for Indio after the “Let’s Book Roger Waters” Coachella fiasco; now my trip to Alaska’s Sitka Summer Music Festival might be ruined as well. The month-long celebration of chamber music is traditionally capped with an all-you-can-eat crab fest–truly, as all classical music festivals ought to be–but sadly, according to the Anchorage Daily News, the previous sponsor decided not to foot the bill this year. The Daily News was too delicate to mention the cheapskates unwilling to cough up the paltry $5,000 for the people of Sitka and classical music lovers with access to a sea plane to enjoy some crab on the house, but Idolator isn’t afraid of stepping on some toes.

Shame on you, Alaska Airlines. You may have 92 exciting destinations, but you’ve broken 8,835 hearts in Sitka. [Anchorage Daily News]
