Paramore is ready for its close-up, again. One of my college students greeted me last week by telling me the highlight of her summer was seeing Paramore headline a festival on the beach in New Jersey. I also took my teen and preteen daughters to Van's Warped tours consecutive summers 2005-2006. They didn't want to hang around with me (of course), so missed out on meeting Joan Jett, who invited me to cool off in her trailer.

New generation, same shitty gatekeeping.

The weird purity tests and Talmudic debates about which bands were acceptable and which were sellouts (or who was "down," and who was a poser) were bad enough in the early 90s, but at least there wasn't any social media throwing gas on the fire.
