Who are we missing out on that's so crucial? Is Chicago REALLY that far of a drive?

Kieltolaki and Asta Kask are touring and not playing here. Will have to go to Austin to see them.

Oh, not at all. It's only $3.50 a gallon x whatever your mileage happens to be @ 800 miles round trip, plus libations, food, parking, motel, door charge... yep, pretty cheap.

Sadly, I think Felix is very right on the lack of raw talent. The Bay area gets pretty much every new band, and I'm routinely disappointed by pretty much every one I go see....now I'll be the first to admit I'm pretty snarky and judgemental, but this really applies to every genre I check out, not just punk bands. While having the net grants such great opportunity for any band to get their stuff out there, itis it's own curse for the same reason. The time it used to take to develop a sound, and a following has been effectively eliminated.

Daego, what you are experiencing is "punk rock meltdown" (I've really got to enter that into the sociological lexicon one of these days) or perhaps secondary P.R.M. Happens to everyone, the deeper you're involved in "the scene" the worse it is. It'll pass, and hopefully you can enjoy the thing for what it is.
