In a move that just makes me scratch my head, best new brit band, The Editors are opening tonight for NY’s Stellastarr*, who are mediocre at best.

I’ve been dying to see The Editors play the 930 Club for awhile. Their album The Back Room is a near masterpiece full of love lost lyrics and featuring amazing guitar playing showing influences that range from Joy Division to Echo to U2. Why they are playing second fiddle to Stellastarr* makes little sense to me (must be the asterix).

But hey, at least we get to see them play right? And early word out of Austin’s SXSW Festival is that The Editors put on one of the best sets of the whole dang week down there.

(The Editors go on at 8:30)

PS- There is a also an after-party hosted by Electro-Tease at DC9 starting conviniently right after the show. Go figure.

    if it makes you feel better, i believe the two are sharing top billing on the tour (i.e. one night stellastar* headlines, another the editors). this must be stellastar*’s (that’s weird to type) night.

    Aww, whaddya mean ‘go figure’? Are you trying to imply that it’s opportunistic, or rolling your eyes at the kids who want to keep partying on a week night after the 9:30 dumps them out before midnight?

    Not at all. Just go figure the ‘after-party’ starts after the show, when else would it? After-parties are always odd little affairs anyhow.

    Well, maybe a little opportunistic.
