21 - 3 = Scene?

I saw Live from…the Hook tonight. The movie covers the 1970s-80s Charlottesville music scene, and it cites the raising of the drinking age to twenty-one as one cause of that scene's decline.

Having played my share of gigs in town, I'm inclined to agree. Added bonus: the U.Va. frat scene has to compete with the bars and clubs for the eighteen-to-twenty-year-old crowd. Better social options for the underage folks. More potential fans for the bands. Fewer people going to frat parties. It's a win-win-win.
