Thanks, David! It's a bit odd that it say $6 advance on Rialto's event info page for the show, although it could just be me thinking it odd.
Hey Ldonyo -- I just called over to the Rialto Box Office, and apparently tickets are only being sold at the door tomorrow night, nothing in advance.
That's just, like, your opinion, man.
I just stopped by the Rialto to get tickets for this and they don't have them. No one seems to have them. Any reference to tickets points to the Rialto. More than a little frustrating to say the least.
Jeff, I'm cool with the NMH fans who disagreed with Levine's review -- differing opinions are fine, and I prefer them to everyone patting everyone else on the back.
But when readers like the commenter who couldn't stand to have his/her perceptions of Mangum challenged, and thus said of our writer "fuck him" (and since had his/her comment deleted), I'm not particularly concerned about their feelings.
Also, considering that the NMH reunion announcement was big enough to merit a fairly visible post on some of the most visible blogs in the country, I'm willing to call this "news with a slightly lengthy aside."
Dude, seriously? This article isn't "news", if you actually consider this article worthy "content" I simply can't help you. You think the fact that this small circle of friends has decided to play together again proves/changes anything about Jeffs motive for touring? Correlation =/= causation. I stand by all of my analysis on the other thread. This article is a shameful, cowardly cheap shot that contributes nothing. Frankly, you sound like a petulant child. I KNOW exactly where Jeff's head is at in all this. It astounds me that any magazine would allow its writers to taunt prospective readers like this. Seriously- I'm utterly flabbergasted.
Wow! Turns out the author may have been on to something http://m.pitchfork.com/news/47783-neutral-…
..I'm wondering when the comments apologizing to the author for some pretty venomous statements are going to start coming in. However, in this day and age, why would anyone let the facts supersede their sense of outrage?
I'm stoked for The Killers <3
Thats the wrong album cover
66 years old now..and Nam Vet moniker is just getting glue.....not sure you all get it yet... though.. Big war does not work. Big planes are for big planes. Big bombs are for Raytheon. We can only win with a moral force of honest and decent forms of governing. So far, we are not the best models of behavior. Patriot to the bone, but not a supporter of either dominant party.... We have to come clean about our motives....China does. Saudi Arabia does.. ergo the reason they loan us so much money...irony being....they believe more in the democratic process than we do....if not they would not loan so much money....get it yet?
I meant Blake Shelton. Sorry. I guess my mind slipped into thinking of something more pleasant than contemporary country music for a moment.
Most contemporary country artists and their music are interchangable anyways. If you enjoy Tim McGraw then you probably enjoy Kenny Chesney or Alan Jackson or Blake Lively or George Strait or...I could go on forever.
In simpler terms, most of this stuff has the same variant as the amount of days in a year. If we're lucky we might find a true original in one out of every four artist or songs, but in all reality it is far less than that even. WAY far less.
New favorite album for my drive time!
I guess my opinion is overwritten by this article...
They are a force to be reckoned with.
Tegan and Sara have performed at least twice in Tucson before, in 2007 at the Rialto, and in 2004, when they opened for Melissa Ferrick at Club Congress.
what a terrible review. Jesus, Josh, we must not have been at the same show.
"Implicit promise of enlightenment" ??? No wonder you were disappointed. Think maybe you went in with unrealistic expectations? Just a little? It was just a concert, and a fine one at that, and your own issues have no place in your review unless you identifiy them as such. I don't think Jeff Mangum has ever promised enlightenment, implicitly or otherwise, and I think most people would find that statement absurd.
