You know you’re getting old when the “alternative” bands you grew up listening to are now playing casino ballrooms:

The Pixies and Alice In Chains are both playing at the local casino this summer. The same casino that features a “Super Seniors Slot Tournament” every Wednesday!

What’s a guy to do when he’s too old to rock out anymore, but too young to qualify for the Senior Slot tourney?

Of course, perhaps the reason that both bands are playing a casino (besides being 20 years removed from their ‘hit’ songs) is the fact that both are missing key members. To me, the Pixies without Kim Deal ain’t the Pixies, and AIC without Layne Staley is very sad in more ways than one.
