I must be getting old.

Take a look at the 2014 Lolapalooza lineup…

lolapalooza 1993Evgen if you don’t like The Smashing Pumpkins, take a look at the other acts! The Boo Radleys, just after releasing Giant Steps? George Frickin’ Clinton?!? Stereolab? Breeders?

Even better, go back a couple of years and take a look at the bill for Coachella 1990…

So, is it just me, or have we all sacrificed quality for quantity?
