Fevers & Mirrors
Okay, so SARS has finally had an impact on my life. The Bright Eyes / Arab Strap show next Monday has been cancelled. Yeah, that’s fine Conor, you little wuss. You stay squirreled away in Nebraska. You could have just played wearing a face mask – hell, it would have kept you from spitting all over the audience this time. But on the plus side, I’m now $16 richer ($32, actually, since Kyle hadn’t paid me for the ticket) and won’t have to stand around the Opera House into the wee hours of a weeknight.
The Weakerthans’ debut for Epitaph, Reconstruction Site will be released on August 26. They’re at the Phoenix on June 7, but I will likely be out of town. See Conor? John Samson ain’t afraid of no SARS bug.
