Because the Phish haven't played here since '03?
You live 5 hrs from Vegas and San Diego. 6 hours to LA.
You could be in much worse places.
No not because the Phish haven't played here, because most bands/groups/acts skip this state all together and when they do come its more often then not a Tuesday or Thursday. Those of us with full time jobs that start early in the AM have difficulty really enjoying these shows. I have lived here for quite awhile now and it is worse now then it ever was in the past. The backward ideology of the majority of the state doesn't help matters either. Driving 5hrs to see a show (not to mention the cost of travel, hotel, etc) gets tedious....but i still do it when its warranted. Flew to LV to see Die Antwoord a couple months back, went to LV for Black Keys last year, Dave and Tim not too long ago, Hollywood for Phish, etc. Going to EDC in LV, Phish in CO, and Puscifer in Prescott in the next few months.....so yeah I travel....and yeah its tedious and expensive and it would be very nice to see a decent show in town once maybe twice a year.
