Last night, chaos broke loose on the interwebs as the owner of Main Event Talent Agency, Judy Blem, posted an angry text photo on the company's Facebook page demanding that World of Beer pay outstanding debts for bands that have played at the company's venues.
World of Beer, a popular chain of bars that specifically notes live music as a key part of its culture, was attacked repeatedly in the comments -- there are 54 comments so far and Blem's post has been shared 155 times. Main Event's post claimed that there remains "21 unpaid invoices for 42 gigs performed at 3 South Florida WOB locations (Dadeland, Midtown & Wellington), dating back from July 19th through September 28th, 2013." The post claimed that the invoices had been repeatedly sent to Reeves Krumin Enterprises LLC (RKE LLC) but have been ignored by the franchise for over six months.
We contacted Judy Blem to discuss the matter further, but she declined to give a statement because of legal concerns. "I have to be careful of what I say," she told us, though throughout the rest of the night, someone commenting through her Main Event's Facebook continued to comment on the photo, defending Blem and giving out more details.
