I hope Scumbo's aware that putting "11 year-old" and the name of that opening act in the same post probably just landed him on a watch list.

I don't and won't ever stop going to shows, but, I still occasionally feel, if not old, older at some of them. Nothing wrong with that, as long as the feeling doesn't impact me.....and it doesn't.

You know, I sort of mis-read your original post. I thought you were making a comment on people that complain about feeling old at shows....that their complaints were getting old.....not that you yourself were getting tired of feeling that way. My response still stands, but, glad I re-read what you typed.

You're still old and miserable, though.

Vampire Weekend presents the ultimate quandary for me: I like their music, but to do so, I have to completely ignore their whole stage persona. Those hipster fucks.

Yeah, it happens. There are bands I like that are far more embarrassing than these guys image wise. Can be an awkward line to tread.

I actually dig their image. No other band looks like them. They're definitely not "hipster." They've keyed in on the fact that Polo by Ralph Lauren, somehow, represents the fashion nexus between preppy and hip-hop.

More important of course, the music is just insanely good. It's a rare treat to get classically trained musicians with Ivy League degrees in music in a rock band.
