Last week Hearts & Plugs founder Dan McCurry posted a picture on Instagram, a drawing that was meant to promote the label’s residency that night at the Commodore with Hermit’s Victory and Brave Baby but was rejected by many, who flagged the photo as racist. Rather than the names of the bands, the image promoting the show at the historically significant African-American jazz and R&B club read “Kermit’s Victory and Slave Baby” and included an image of a baby with a large nose, ears, and lips and shackles around its legs.
