Here’s an excerpt from from the Creative Loafing interview with Aaron Marsh. (Read the full interview.) Do you agree that music doesn’t get the support it needs here? Let us know on Facebook.

CL: Lakeland right now has a problem with a lack of a good music venue, not a lot of support for a music scene from the city.

Marsh: Lakeland’s arts community feels like the music issue is not a part of that scene. I’m trying to find ways to build us up. Things have been good in music here, but now is not one of those times. A lot of people think there should be less bars or kids around. It’s generational.

CL: What keeps you in town then?

Marsh: Our creative community is really awesome; right now it’s just lacking support for the musical component.
