A Pop-Concert Trend …

… that I’ve worried about for a long time seems to be accelerating. Shows are either humongous extravaganzas by beyond-established stars (maybe doing a complete version of a hit album from 20 years ago) or else threadbare, poorly organized and bad-sounding trifles in tiny rooms. One cause is that so many young players now have to manage and promote themselves and play wherever a gig is possible. Of course there are exceptions. But the (in hindsight) steady ol’ system is gone for good.
