    Old news, but will he give Radiohead the same grief for playing there this July?

    This is the corniest festival name I've ever heard and one my favorite bands is headlining.

    Like ten years ago I started a fake thread on somb about indie rock with this slogan and I never heard it anywhere until now.

    Fuck it.

    edit: just dawned on me that I've apparently spent so much time on the internet that the word 'bonnet' has been replaced in my head with 'hood'. Not a proud moment

    I can probably put together a single day I'd want to attend out of the entire Pitchfork lineup. 66% of the headliners can go fuck themselves as far as I'm concerned.

    Caught Lauryn Hill on the livestream. Very much glad I didn't go to this music festival on her account.

    I was in Chicago two years ago while Lollapalooza was happening and the sound of ambulance sirens from people passing out or getting sick (or bitten by strangers) and being taken away to hospitals almost never stopped.

    Like, I know no one goes to listen to the music but if someone did, it seems like it would be continuously interrupted and ruined by this.

    Was on the blue line last night when a bunch of these Lolla kids got in. It did not smell very good.

    It does, yes. It seems quite stinky.

    The blue-collar men are teaming up with a blue-collar comedian for some dates next year. Styx have sealed up more than a half-dozen shows with Larry the Cable Guy for the "Laugh. Rock. Seriously." tour.

    “We first ran into Larry the Cable Guy at a convenience store in Sarasota, Fla., many moons ago,” Styx frontman Tommy Shaw said in a press release. “Now we are pairing up for a fun night of music and comedy, something we could all use a big dose of! I’m ready! Are you? Let’s do this!!!”

    They'll team up for seven shows beginning at the Scheels Arena in Fargo, N.D., on March 21 and end at the State Farm Center in Champaign, Ill., on March 30. Tickets go on sale Nov. 30 at 10AM local time.

    I just have this creeping feeling sometimes like the whole idea we have of society holding a shared culture (or a shared culture holding up society), and art and music being a big and meaningful part of that, the idea of a rock/pop canon and the perennial relevance it holds for new music and current listeners, the purpose and the meaning we give that as curious listeners who care about history, etc., was built on premises that have been totally exhausted and are about to collapse or something. And the new culture that takes its place will have no use for anything it signified in the past.

    This is in many ways totally indistinguishable from the very common feeling of hitting middle age and just writing off everything one doesn't understand as a perversion of the natural order. I cannot separate these thought processes!

    It's also really convenient to be able to look backward and see how big changes in music and culture--punk, hip-hop, dance music--all make sense in the narrative of history that we can easily understand today, but were weird and different and in ways that we can never experience now. They must have signified huge cultural shifts that people rejected because they posed a threat to their worldview and their own individual cultural relevancies. It is easy for me to say, "no, this is different" because it's not something new like any of those movements (at least in my subjective understanding). But you can always find a rationale for why this year's Youth Culture will be the death of it all, can't you?

    Rock music is completely dead, yes you and I will still enjoy it for the rest of our lives but it's over and that might be fine but what took its place? Rap music today has nothing to do with any of the artists I loved or cared about or thought was "important." Did white people like me hold a view of it that was twisted to help us make sense of it? Respecting the culture and the history was more important to hip-hop than any other music! I internalized the idea at some point, I don't know, go ahead and laugh I don't care. I don't feel like most listeners or artists today care about any rap made before the 2000s. It wasn't long ago that this was timeless music, suddenly it got hopelessly dated real fast. Everything is a meme now and everyone played along with this and let it happen.

    What's worse, the idea that they're not even trying anymore and know people will buy 4-day passes without even knowing who's booked to play? Or the idea that they really care and this is really the best that they could manage to scrape together?

    "7 Rings" is the worst #1 hit of the Trump era.

    Everyone wants to be weird now, social media made it shameful not to be. "Electronic music" was the last frontier for creative expression, it's just saturated with limitless product now and everything is boring. It's incredibly easy for anyone to get started and arrogance and conceit will aid them more than patience and curiosity.

    "the concert industry" - Page 3 Lineup10

    This is why I feel like the end of culture is upon us. Participation in what's to come will not look or feel like anything we can wrap our minds around at this time, just like the culture we enjoyed, you have to be born into it.
