Half of you don't know what you're talking about or being upright snooty about this.
#2- This isn't Japan. The L throw all sorts of free "alcohol sponsored" shows with great bands. What is your definition of "corny" anyway?
#3- Very convenient to blame gentrification. A safer neighborhood. This isn't the 80s anymore, get over it.
#5- Some of the best bands I've ever seen had yet to officially put out a record. Give me one example of a real band that played "some party" in Williamsburg and then were immediately signed. Let them record a bad album and embarrass themselves or their label.
Second to last one: There are like a zillion shows that are less than 10 bucks. Sounds like you need to look a little bit harder.
