Paper Late: Are gigs growing old gracefully, or a young man's blues?
A response by Editor Jerry Ewing to last month's Paper Late column
Last issue, Prog writer Polly Glass, in an excellent piece, pondered the idea of why young people just aren’t going to gigs like they used to. And in doing so highlighted a show, or rather two shows, that I attended, that I believe shed a different light on the issue.
The shows in question were the House Of Progression promoted Francis Dunnery/Alan Reed/Tillison & Stevens/The Gift bill at the Boston Music Rooms and the Dead Letter Circus/FOES show at The Dome venue, directly upstairs. Neither pulled a particularly dismal crowd, but notably neither were rammed either.
