Burgerama draws the approval of a music festival-hating musician

On Friday afternoon, I had given up on the future of music. A friend of mine had just introduced me to two terrible artists, and I went on a Twitter rampage. I raged about sexist, garbage-disposal rock, about the grossness of vapid nihilism and desperate, borderline illegal sex appeal. It felt flaccid — a "Twitter rampage"? Is this how we articulate ourselves now? — but I digress. As a musician, I hate music festivals too. I know that's Spoiled Artist Pity Party 101, but it's true. Maybe I'm just old now, but festivals are crowded, sweaty, flustered events where parking and a hot dog cost $25 each. But you know who doesn't hate music festivals?...
