It List: Wednesday
The Police/Elvis Costello (Starplex): I've probably said this before on here, but I feel inclined to say it again-- I have honestly never really enjoyed a single thing Elvis Costello has ever done aside from his collaborations with Burt Bacharach a number of years ago. I couldn't even tell you why exactly, but Costello is one of those artists that I've never been able to connect with in any meaningful way at all. I'm sure a lot of people reading this do not share my view, but I find most of his music to be quite boring, even his "cool" early output, and no one has ever been able to change my mind. Sorry. Anyway, The Police apparently sold over 2.5 million tickets on their last tour (2007), making it one of the most successful tours of the year anywhere. And with tickets starting at $55 and going all the way up to $250 in most locations, I'd have to guess that the thing Sting can't stand losing... is money.
It's What We Get (Hailey's): This will be Alan Palomo's last appearance in Denton with It's What We Get, as he'll be moving to New York for the summer to begin his new musical projectbefore a permanent move to Austin later in the summer (a move that was one of the major forces behind the break up of Ghosthustler, apparently). Tonight's show will also feature a guest set from Keith P. Stop by and say goodbye to homeboy.
