“…there are moments in our lives where we’re not present because we’re looking at a phone….experiencing life through a four-inch screen could be the new norm.”

i HATE ‘smart” phones, they are really dum…. this has killed live music where people INSTANTLY go to their phones if they are uncomfortable in anyway…bored, distracted, etc… why go listen to music if you are on your phone or drunk all the time?

  1. Totally agree. Also, people who talk all the way through the songs. Unfortunately, I don’t have the balls to do anything more than just give them the evil eye. Some of us are actually there because we “chose” to go hear that particular artist do their thing. If they wanted to talk through the entire performance, why didn’t they just go to a bar and put on the jukebox?

    • Ang, well in Chicago the entertainment industry has devolved to focus on booze – only. Didn’t used to be that way. Booze basically drives the music business at venues now and Ne-YO is pimping vodka, etc. For 20 sumptin’s whoever can get the most drunk most often “wins.” Ecerything is a sports bar now in Chicago – with screens of games going all the time tool. Hyper-disrespectful.

      Especially singer-songwriter performances, like jazz – you need enough quite so you can hear the lyrics AND the people you are with! What a radical idea!
