I was on a panel at Bandwith Conference last week and the ‘who is going to play The Staples Center in five years?’ question came up again. I answered (again), ‘who the fuck wants to see a show at The Staples Center?’
See also: anything that takes place in some giant open area with 900,000 other people, 5 stages, and 200 bands (i.e. what passes for “going to a show” these days).
I wish we were in the process of electing a Supreme-Commander-Of-All-The-Music-Industry, because Ian could be our Obama. (via via fred-wilson)
i was at this panel. and i agree with ian.
all i want to do is embed a video of my favourite hall & oates song “i can’t go for that (no can do)” & talk about how last night’s concert was magnificent (and yes, they played that song), but every friggin’ video on the youtubes says “embedding disabled by request”! by the request of whom? certainly not my hall & oates, sir! ugh.
