    But now they've quantified what was already suspected:


    On average, every 0.1 milligram per milliliter increase in study participants' blood alcohol levels raised their likelihood of having unprotected sex by 5 percent, the researchers found.

          Wait, aren't people supposed to pay you to tour?

          Maybe you could get some locals to kick in money so you leave where you are now.

            My apartment now smells of bacon (breakfast) and porchetta (late lunch). It's a wonderful smell. And the meat smog also has been rejuvenated.
            Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

              Well yeah we will get paid for each show, but there's a tremendous outlay of costs initially - getting to and from the tour (west coast, from east coast in this case), van rental/deposit, the merch we need to have ready for sale, etc. Plus whatever gear we'll be renting for a backline.

              Music is incredibly expensive. In the age of record labels, they would finance this (and recoup it through album sales), but since record labels only really deal with huge bands now (or are simply tiny distributors), more and more bands are going the DIY route and financing everything themselves.

                At what point in the transition from the Hold Steady and Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Bon Iver (album of the year my ***) and Destroyer did "indie rock" become Brian-Eno-meets-Kenny-G ambient smooth jazzy garbage? These guys make the Decemberists look like AC/DC. I feel like I need to go do penance at the Church of Joey Ramone to purify my ears.

                  I don't understand a single thing in this post, except for the word "transition" after that, I have no idea what any of that means.

                  edit: Oooohh, AC/DC, I know them!

                    Presumably you've heard of Joey Ramone too.

                      You do realize that there are plenty of harder edged indie bands, stop reading Pitchfork! (have no idea of Pitchfork's taste anymore, but I do know they haven't gotten better since I stopped reading them about 6 years ago) Also, front man of Hold Steady: Minnesotan, front man of Bon Iver: Wisconsinite. Coincidence?

                        I really dislike Bon Iver. They get a ton of play on the station I listen to. UGH. Just hearing the lead singer's voice makes me want to punch him in the face.

                          I would actually doubt that bb_dl has.
