far as I can tell, the best band currently
touring--and certainly the band responsible for the
best album of the past 4 years--is The Hold Steady.
(The album: Boys and Girls in America. Go and buy it
now. I'll wait. GO!!!) They are coming to Houston.
The date is Thursday, June 7. I know most of you
don't know of them. Of their power. Believe me: it
is great. They are Rock N Roll. I must go, and I
must buy tickets. I will buy them on Friday. You all
should come. If you want me to buy you tickets too,
email. Otherwise, ignore these rantings. For
rantings they surely must be.
