* Death Cab for Cutie, on whom the jury is still out (IMHO) pending their follow-up to Plans, is coming to Constitution Hall in a couple weeks. I wasn't sure right away that I wanted to go, but I changed my mind. I'm going. It'll be a good show. And for all my reservations about Plans, I still listen to it more often than any of their other albums. I'm really just holding them to a higher standard. (Because they know better!!!)
Anyway, all of those reservations about the show just got flushed down the loo. Turns out Ted Leo & the Pharmacists will be the opener. Now I'm totally looking forward to the show. I would have gone to see Ted on his own.
* Thanksgiving sucks. I like my family and the free turkey and all, but I have to miss The Hold Steady and Robert Randolph. They couldn't wait for me to get back?!? I feel like I just stepped on the burning paper bag on my doorstep. Festive holiday spirit my ass! At least I'll be around for My Morning Jacket. That'll be fun.
