So, this show is mad sold-out, but I'll be there tonight taking in the Killers and Chairlift at the Fabulous Fox, for a review tomorrow. I haven't seen the Vegas superstars since they were OPENING for *Stellastarr in about '04 (circa this interview I did with Brandon Flowers), so I'm curious what to expect. Consider this show the kick-off to the packed summer months in town -- especially May, whose out-of-town gigs are plantains, as the following slideshow reveals: Mayday! Mayday! Good concerts found here!
I'm rocking Day & Age again, and it's much better than I remember. In fact, I'm listening to the tune "The World We Live In" and I am TOTALLY having flashbacks to another act's '80s hits. Hint: It's not Bowie, Roxy Music or any other frequent Killers comparison. This is also a compliment, in my book, so haters can shush.
