Belated recognition

In the recent Rolling Stone listings for Best of Rock 2008, Stubb’s got the nod as one of the five best rock clubs in the U.S. I was surprised to see that, of the five venues, Stubb’s was by far the largest. Perennial favorite Waterloo was named among the top independent record stores. One might ask how much good it does the outfits in question to be included in these listings, since I didn’t read the issue until just now and it’s from May 1, so it obviously wasn’t much of a priority and did not maintain a place atop the stack of printed reading material. Does RS have any influence these days other than for its incisive political reporting? I wonder.
