Making Guys In Eyeliner Hot Again

I don’t pretend to be all hip and cool and have my well-manicured finger on the pulse of the latest and greatest in all of musicdom.

That’s what we have he-of-the-impending nuptials, Michael Darpino, for.

Anyway, I know what I like. And I like Keane, and I looove The Killers.

These two bands are on a double bill at the lovely Merriweather Post Pavilion, set for Wednesday, June 8th. (Okay, okay, there are a couple of other acts playing too…but I’m not cool enough to have the foggiest notion of who the other two acts are.)

Keane’s 70s-soft-rock-Bread-meets-Coldplay sound is in heavy rotation for me these days. And The Killers? Well, I love them with a love once reserved only for Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies…I mean, come on…Eric Roberts is in their video…plus, they seem like they’d put on one helluva live show.

So, yeah…The Killers and Keane are playing.

And there was much rejoicing.

You can join me in my rejoicing when you buy your tickets during tomorrow morning’s pre-sale courtesy of The Dreaded Ticketmaster.

What’s that you say? You don’t have the password for the pre-sale?

And lo, there came the word. And the word was: lasvegas.

And it was good.

    Word! I just got back from Vegas on a business trip and I got to see the Killers out there–in their home town no less! At one of the best venues ever (The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel) and it was awesome. Now, maybe I was just high from elbowing the annoying guy next to me in the kidneys so hard that he doubled over and shortly thereafter disappear, but this was a kick ass show. I saw them last year up in NYC ( and they were awesome, but seeing them in Vegas last week proved that they have totally crystallized as a band. Brandon Flowers’ “aw shucks, you think I’m cute” act has been refined with a casing of pure bravado and some good old fashioned showman-ship. He owned that stage with his pink leather jacket

    This is like the dream concert for me, but alas, I already have plans that night that aren’t cancelable. *le sigh*
