news of lollapalooza's demise has me also feeling weathered as the comment which most struck me from the New York Time's account was something along the lines of Sonic Youth and Morrissey? who cares??
which is probably true insofar as those who might care have outgrown the desire to spend megabucks to peer at a million bands from far far away.
that said I'm still going to go to the Gorge for Curiosa if I can get a ticket and they don't have to cancel the whole thing due to similar lack of interest. I mean it's the Gorge. it's almost worth the money just to go and watch the sunset.
