I'm not a big patron of organic food stores, but on occasion I'll stop in when I'm in the mood for an apple not covered in wax & pesticides. Usually within these type of stores you'll find a small section of music limited to compilations of Women In Africa, Spiritual Celtic nonsense, Native American Music, James Taylor & anything that has a pan flute as the lead instrument.
How come no Ted Nugent? Yeah, fine. A lot of people make the assumption that organic food consumers are not into meat, poultry, or anything that had eyes before it ended up on their plate, but in all seriousness, the market for organic food is a lot broader than what the general public perceives.
So with this in mind, both the food & music in these shops should not be limited to what is the stereotypical concept of an organic food eater. Toss in some meat and Metallica... early Metallica, and let those who just want good, non processed food feel welcome in your stores. No matter how many times I walk into a place like this, both the customers and employees have a bad habit of looking down their nose at me just because I have a side of beef hanging out of my shopping cart. If i can deal with and accept your African feminist music and tofu cream cheese, you can deal with a little Slayer & meat. Live & let live. (insert random Sepultura riff here)
