Success Hasn’t Spoiled Them Yet

November 8, 2007

We mentioned the inevitable “Baltimore scene” backlash a couple of months back in this space, and now it is not only starting to gather glib steam–see this one-paragraph summation of Double Dagger–but is finding roots close to home. On Nov. 6, Retriever Weekly, UMBC’s student newspaper, published a riotous assasination of the Halloween Bank show featuring Baltimore’s much-loved Dan Deacon and Ponytail, along with Nuclear Power Pants and show emcee (and City Paper contributor) Ed Schrader. Ah, the ongoing cycles of independent music, where every up-and-coming generation is always the next idol to be killed by the generation right behind it.
