|1.||West Coast Inflation|
Tendency of the west coast to overrate. For instance, if a show has rave reviews in Frisco you should wait until it gets as far east as Chicago before believing it.
Possible explanations include laidback, non-critical attitudes, drug use, and simply less exposure to good culture.
The term originated in the drum corps circle, where corps are numerically judged across the country and the scores coming from the west are disregarded.
Wow, these guys are supposed to be fantastic!
Don't believe the hype, it's just west coast inflation.
