Just wanted to comment on the piece by Tara Thorne in the Back to School Guide ("Ironic, man," September 3). That was hands down one of the best opinion pieces I have ever read---sad, funny, honest and regrettably all too true.
I was actually a little shocked that The Coast even ran it. After all, the magazine does have a whiff of hipster elitism about it. (And on that note, could we please see bands on the cover that aren't close personal friends of the editorial staff and who don't play indie-rock? There are other genres in the city. But I digress.) I just thought it was a great and timely piece.
