Goodbye cruel New York! I will not miss you because I’m sick of you. I hate you, even. All those fruitless nights I spent underneath your unforgiving glare. I am leaving you. But alas, I know I’ll be back to shed more tears in your honor…or at least in Coldplay’s honor.
Here are things you can do without me for the next week or so:
If you are in Chicago, please head over to the Metro to see one of the special “buzz gigs” Coldplay are doing to promote their new album, X & Y
Tune in your TV and watch Beck perform a song from Guero on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
The Saints + Lovers return to the Mercury Lounge. Other bands on the bill include Vitamen and The Giraffes.
It looks like a potential train wreck, but who can resist the urge to see Rose McGowan play Ann-Margret?
Also check out the wonderful hardcover book, Elvis by the Presleys. It features amazing shots of Elvis’s personal possessions and new interviews with Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley. It’ll make you want to go to Graceland.
Tell the photographer of the cover artwork exactly what you think of the photo. I think it looks great.
Get all international and see Stereo Total and Les Georges Leningrad play at Bowery Ballroom.
Get all mainstream pop and scope out teenagers from the ‘burbs and while watching =W= at Roseland.
Check out The Rapture‘s Vito Roccaforte hit the ones and twos at the Run Roc night at Rothko. The bands playing are Neutral Mute, Spankrock, and Skism
Here’s another TV date: Beck and the making of Guero will be the subject of a piece on ABC’s Nightline.
You can also have the chance to contract a whole array of diseases from one of the comely attendants of the Fischerspooner residency at the Canal Room that very same night. If you can’t make it in time for the show, get down at 11pm to catch afterparty DJ sets by the MisShapes crew. RSVP to fischerspooner @ misshapes.com
1 penny goes to the person who leaves the best comment while I’m gone.
