Generation X: an age group that is synonymous with flannel shirts, Unisonic clear telephones, indie films, and blowing on the bottom of your video game cartridges if they were malfunctioning. But most of all, the one thing that this generation of so-called “slackers” is known for is…the music.

Heaven did let its light shine down on a rockin’ crowd at Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino on September 6.
