Gothamist is getting old: At the Built to Spill concert last night, we were irked beyond belief by the white-hat type frat boys flailing around and yelling "Slayer!" or "Black Sabbath!" in the poorest ironic way possible (maybe irony should be dead), while their idiot girlfriends decided to emit ear-piercing screams for the hell of it. Gothamist is contemplating a cranky old man style letter to Irving Plaza ("In my day...") but we know this is just the natural passage of time. This is why we worry about our nation's youth.

Other than the fools, a solid concert as always by our boys from Idaho.
