We're ensconced in an age where, due to the prevalence of the Internet and illegal downloading (along with the economy's general downturn), many bands can only afford to tour regionally, if at all. The flipside to that same phenomenon is that information has never been more accessible, and conversat.
We're ensconced in an age where, due to the prevalence of the Internet and illegal downloading (along with the economy's general downturn), many bands can only afford to tour regionally, if at all. The flipside to that same phenomenon is that information has never been more accessible, and conversation has never been easier to initiate across vast distances. There's an above-average chance that members of some of your favorite bands live in different cities, states, or even countries. Similarly, there's a pretty good chance that many of your favorite bands are veritable supergroups living in the same region, having risen from the ashes of either broken-up contemporaries or from the relative inactivity of their other gigs. These bands arrive with built-in pedigrees and, perhaps, unrealistic expectations. We inherently expect a band like Daytrader to be immediately great, when they're still really finding their voice. A young band is a young band, no matter how many veterans make up the ranks; chemistry takes time to manifest itself, if it ever does at all.
