    I’m sympathetic, but I still think the “No room for a roadie” thing as a limpdick complaint. Unless you’re Steven Hawking, you can man the fuck up and move your own shit.

    that’s a good point. maybe the high cost of gas will act as a filter and keep the lamer bands off the road. the increased financial risk of touring will lead bands to practice their instruments and actually practice playing together as a unit. only the strongest will survive.

    maybe it’s because everybody in nashville can sing and play and is ridiculously talented, but c’mon touring indie rock bands, step it up. when there are six or seven of you on stage and it sounds like a thin three piece, you should probably stick to recording.
