This is what good rock journalism looks like. I love this piece. Enjoy....
Tension was built in: The bands hated the shift from the first years’ open field settings to the smaller-sized, fixed-seat amphitheaters colloquially known as “sheds” and the fact that they often played to row upon row of empty seats as their die-hard fans watched from a distant lawn area. They were also ambivalent about the attendees, and the feeling was mutual. In post-Nirvana America, “alternative” meant platinum acts like Bush or the Smashing Pumpkins, not the truly subterranean indie rock of the Jesus Lizard — and the difference between the Lollapalooza many fans expected and the one they got still rankles.
