You are not getting old. There's performance art, and then there's being an unprofessional shithead. If you don't want to play the show biz game with touring, don't tour.

White kids, especially hipster-in-denial white kids, are so fucking starved for alternative hip-hop that they latch onto any and every one that gets some sort of underground success. Death Grips already has the connection with the hipster kids because Zach Hill from Hella plays drums in it. Mix that with noise/industrial elements and you have something just off-kilter from the mainstream enough that it makes huge waves.

Of course I'm shit when it comes to hip-hop. Each time I try to listen to something new I just end up putting Wu-Tang Clan or Beastie Boys back on.

This.

Play occasional shows or be a festival band but don't tour and then mis-treat your fan-base like this. You're ripping kids off, and that's not cool.

I like Death Grips and I will happily pay for their records, but this has made me re-consider ever wanting to see them live.

No, you're doing hip-hop correctly.

Haha, word. Not the end of the world then.

But I'm sure many spent a shit ton on gas, hotel, beer, food, etc.
