SXSW Takeaway

Posted by Andrew R Tonry on Fri, Mar 19, 2010 at 5:46 PM


I'm home, scanning the blogs about SXSW and one stupid fad seems to trump them all: surfin' beach party music. Well, FUCK ALL THOSE BANDWAGON BANDS! We're living in a critical juncture of history and all our generation can come up with is chillwave and surf shit? Most of these poseurs don't even go in the ocean. This is worse than 60's freak folk revival. Get bent. Write something with meaning every once in a while, eh? There's no shortage of material... God dammit.


It was mentioned in the comments that the reader missed the "critical juncture" we are living in. I'll add that here:

Health Care, Two Wars, Global Assault on Muslims, Financial Crisis, Record Unemployment, Broken Political System, Climate Change... Not exactly the booming end of the century years now are they?
