Sometimes life bites. There are seasons, allergies, and boring jobs, which when coupled with the selfitis of today’s youth, the future may seem pretty bleak. During times like these, close your eyes and imagine yourself a “Runaway Train,” headed straight to Arcadian “Santa Monica” where avuncular 90s rockers with bleached hair will whisper “I Will Buy You a New Life” into your yearning ear. Here, life is lived “Inside Out,” that is, with emotions on sleeves, and non-stop Everclear, Soul Asylum, Eve 6 and Spacehog music shimmers in the air. Know that this world will come to be. Trust that the 90s will return triumphant. “In the Meantime,” go to this year’s Summerland Tour, the last bastion of 90s alt-rock nostalgia and a harbinger of the Utopia to come.
