I’ve been meaning to post about this but I guess I’ve been so mad about it, I forgot. Coachella is only selling 3 day passes this year. There are no one day tickets. So If I want to go to only Day 3 to see Pavement and Gorillaz, I have to pay $269 freaking dollars. That is insane. I really hope this new venture will fail miserably, but I know it won’t because concerts are no longer for actual music fans, they are for rich people who don’t even care what show they are going to. I have seen more evidence to this fact when I do actually make it out to a show and I see more and more people talking and not even paying attention to the set, getting completely drunk so they won’t even remember the show, and other ridiculous displays of non-cool show behavior. I am aware I probably sound like an old man ranting about this, but I really don’t care. Live Nation and the big promoters are ruining live music as we know it. I guess I’ll stick to the small local shows, but I really do miss the big concerts. Perhaps if the fans stop handing these crooks their money by the bushel they would be forced to change. One can dream.
