Feisty Blogger “Atrios” went to see a concert. His report…
The Old People Are Alright
Had good seats to see Spoon and The Arcade Fire last light. Was surprised by the number of old people who were there, and by old people I don’t mean old buggers like me, I mean people more than a couple years older than I am and who weren’t there with their kids. These are two bands that are reasonably popular and you’re aware of them if you’re at all plugged into the indieish music scene, but don’t have complete mass marketing behind them.
Anyway, point is not “good that old people like these two bands,” the point is good for old people who don’t live in an endless nostalgia loop. Life goes on after The Eagles reunions end.
Atrios is, I think, 38 years old.
Old is a relative term.
