File this under Signs of the (Mayan?) Apocalypse: Rush Featured on NPR. Wow.
I recently saw Rush play a show in Atlanta. The crowd ranged in age from five to the mid-fifties, embracing both lank-haired teenage skateboarders and heart surgeons. And when the band launched into its ode to suburban anomie, “Subdivisions,” everyone got it. If you were a smart kid, you lived that song in your youth, and a little thing like academic tenure won’t make you forget it. And if you weren’t, you lived it too.
Update: D’Oh! My clever title was wrong. Fixed. Happy 21/12, by the way!
