In a pretty weird method of urging a generally conservative daily newspaper audience to check out a rock show in a stinky club, the Baltimore Sun devoted a big color photo and multiple columns to Texas indie rockers Voxtrot today, mostly to talk about how no one’s paying attention to them anymore and to mention the mediocre reception the band’s newest album has received from the online press corps. Voxtrot’s singer, Ramesh Srivastava, hilariously comes off like a Luddite-by-necessity, forced to take aim at all Internet-related activity because a bunch of bloggers have suddenly spurned him. (First person to locate the dude’s Netflix queue gets $20.) One of Srivastava’s complaints did ring true, however: “”The internet is a very dark place to be.” Tell us about it, dude.
