The Day the Music Passed Us By

Basically, once most of the bands I like can afford to fly from Austin to the West Coast, they stop coming to Arizona. There aren't many places in the States this populated that have a more paltry concert calendar. And the problem is getting worse. I have a theory why. Many of the acts that do come here make references to getting stopped somewhere in the state by the police. Could it be that the Border Patrol and their local assistants are discriminating against bands that travel in vans? Goodness knows that there's no easier way to getting police attention in these parts.
