Five - Wait, Six - Great Moments In Lead-Singer Douchery

A few weeks ago, when I saw What Made Milwaukee Famous at the Main Street Block Party, I wanted to like the band's performance, but I just couldn't ignore that the lead singer was texting during his set.

Sure, I thought that What Made Milwaukee Famous' cover of Wings' "Let 'Em In" was great and all of their own songs sounded live just as recorded, etc., but then the lead singer was texting and looking at his phone while singing to the point of ridiculousness. People behind me were wondering out loud if he was looking up his own lyrics.

That's so anti-authority, man. He just didn't care what anybody else thought about him texting. That's so rock and roll.
