I'll more than likely go see the shows I've listed in bold. I'm half tempted to go to the Rob Base show just to see what he does after he plays It Takes Two and Joy & Pain. What's he gonna do for the rest of the set?

Thanks to Thighs Wide Shut for pointing out this little tidbit:

Somewhere over Massachusetts is a sparrow who apparently doesn't care for '80s rock. Cyndi Lauper was reaching for a high note during her opening number at Saturday's KISS-108-sponsored concert in Mansfield, Mass., when from the sky came a white glob of bird poop.
The fecal critique landed in her open mouth.

HA! Friends from NYC will understand why it was a pleasure reading that.

Hey, get me out of this some way / I wouldn't feel so inhibited
Gotta get me out of this some way / I want to see what it is they see
Stone cold yesterday / changed / how did it change me?
