The Fabulous Fox
passed along a concert announcement this morning: Rob Thomas
-- he of Matchbox 20, "Smooth" and solo-career fame -- at the venue on Halloween (which is on a Saturday this year). OneRepublic
and Carolina Liar
are opening; tickets are on sale this Friday, July 17, at 10 a.m. Thomas has a new solo album, Cradlesong
, that's rather diverse; tunes range from '80s-styled synthrock to Paul Simon-esque rock-folk celebrations.
You know, though, one can't help but wonder if the bands will perform in costume at the show, as acts are wont to do on Halloween. Perhaps Thomas would do something like this...

No offense intended -- just a little fun on a Monday afternoon.
