I think God hates me - that is the only excuse for Radiohead and Lucero being in town the same night. I'll be at Radiohead but I'll be singing "Sweet Little Thing" in my head.

PS - thoughts on Ben Nichols from Lucero's contributions to the new Hold Steady album?

This is the thing I've never been a fan of the Hold Steady. I've wanted to see them live before to understand what all the fuss is about. I know they just came but that week we were super busy. As far as the song I checked it out and It is a nice slice of bar rock. I really like Ben's voice a lot, it is too bad that tour with him Chuck Regan, Tim Barry and Co is not coming to C-town. I loved going to see Avail when I was younger and HWM were also a great time too.
