[SHTICK ROCK] What would a post-millennial version of the Tubes have become? Fee Waybill and the boys likely ended up a rock band as consequence of their era—rock \'n\' roll, alongside sex and kung fu, one of the few growth industries of 1970s America—and they\'ve spent a long career highlighting a detachment from the genre proper. While at least Steely Dan and Zappa assembled something new atop scavenged FM fundamentals, the Tubes wasted their relevant years slathering anthemic instincts in theatrical spectacle and instrumental snark for the sort of rabid devotees (think prog Parrotheads) who prize cleverness above all else in their favored pop. The diehards attending their umpteenth Tubes concert may claim they\'re supporting musicianship above nostalgia, but, while flourishes of smug virtuosity survive with rather more dignity than extended parodies of tour decadence, both unfunny satire and its fans age poorly.
