"Jeff Mangum 1/18 at Liberty Hall. I don't know who he is"
Maybe Steve J is joking, or maybe not, but Jeff Mangum was the leader of Neutral Milk Hotel, who created the 1998 Indie Classic, "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea." It's one of those albums that you discover new stuff every time you hear it and is definitely worth your time. It may not be for everyone, but that abum has a cult following that still won't die down. Much like Jeff Buckley's "Grace." After reading buzz on Buckley, I bought his album the day it came out back in '94 and raved about it to all my music loving friends. Like the Neutral Milk Hotel record, it didn't really get the acclaim it deserved until well after the fact.

....oh, and by the way, Morrissey did a great job at his Midland show here a few years back. I loved that he did "Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others" that night only to find out that it was the first time he played it on that tour and some Smith's fan site claimed it was the first time he had performed the song live since the breakup of The Smiths. But if you ever loved The Smiths (The Smiths and REM were on my stereo constantly in the mid-80's), then do make it a point to see Morrissey live.

In same town, too. I'm in for Calexico, was never a big Smiths fan.

Ha, let everyone go to Morrissey. I'd much rather see Calexico.

Hah-ha-ha-ha-ha!! Hey, Morrissey - I believe that I made those same Popeye comments last time he came through the area. Seems like he was at the Midland. I also called him spinach chin. The Liberty Hall gig is WAY over-priced (for him) anyway.

I can't believe the ticket prices for this one! Maybe Calexico is the better option.

Calexico for roughly a third of the price, seems like a no-brainer to me.
