KOL and Killers are perfect examples when decent bands go bad. First few records are really good (with both, but esp KOL) then they go play arenas with boring newer catalogs in tow. First 3 KOL are great, but the ones since have been ok at best, but mostly bad.

That much is obvious. That should be the case.

@David Mobley - read the article again. That's not what she was getting.

deprives... don't buy that at all. I never had any money growing up, but always made a point to buy records. discovering new music? i did that just fine before all this internet stuff so don't act like pulling things down is depriving anyone. Make just enough to get by, ideally? Who are you to determine this? That very example counteracts what you say it's supposed to do. There are tons of passionate people that can not pursue it simply due to the devaluing of music in the digital age.

Totally agree. Cave and the Seeds was HANDS DOWN the best thing I saw this past year (in Louisville), and I saw A LOT of shows in 2014. I don't know how he did, or continues to do it, but this last tour he has put on the best shows of his entire career. Simply untouchable live.

Yes but that is also the same area that is used for the press... so.

VIP sections are fine... as long as they are NOT in the front of the stage. I agree w Beth's statement. I've seen a bunch of festivals that did or do this practice and it stinks on every level. There were times at All Points West and Bunbury those sections would be 90% empty during the day, leaving huge gaps of nothing at the front of the crowd. Plus the majority of VIP types don't care enough to be up front anyway without the luxury of getting to do so without any effort. Coachella seems to do this right, even with all the stars and countless VIP/industry types. They keep the VIP section to the side (or side stage) and let the kids who made the effort to be up front, be up front.

No we can't... that's the lazy point of view that gave this "goddess of the passable pop country song" a career in the first place.

...by original talent you mean being a totally manufactured pop star? Listen I get it, she's somewhat cute, approachable and all but short of appearing on American Idol, her career is made by pleasing the lowest common music fan with the safest trite music around... Her "bold new directions" are only offensive in that they are never bold nor a new direction.

April 25, 2014 on Anthony Bourdain Breaks His Legendary Silence In The Rock Vs. EDM Debate
There was a time when EDM music was good... many many years ago. Like most things, once it goes mainstream to this level, there's barely anything left to salvage. The Douche scene is spot on... just add plastic surgery loving blondes to the mix, and there you have it. This is the college greek system played out after college, soundtracked by talentless, button-pushing morons.

Haim, Ms Mr, Perfect Pussy and Chvrches are some of the most over-rated things to come out in music in a VERY long time... Their fine (except maybe for Haim and PP - who are just plain crap), but all of this has been done MANY TIMES before and more importantly, has been done waaaaay better. Short Term memory and short attention spans these days I guess.

My shop still has 10 copies of the Pixies (they had a ton to start with) They also have a couple of the Camera Obscura. The LCD, Cake, Ghostbusters, REM, Scott Pilgrim, Soundgarden and Garcia all went extremely quick. At least in the first 10-15 minutes. The DMB lasted all afternoon.
