    Riot Fest: Morrissey's curated lineup / preview party details released (September 2, 2021)

    Actually it doesn't specifically say Morrissey is curating anything. It was worded in a purposeful way so one might jump to that conclusion ( and sell tickets on short notice) but like every Riot Fest event, the curating is done by Riot Fest. I think Riot Fest "curated" a lineup whose crowd...

    Las Vegas, NV - The Colosseum at Caesars Palace (Aug. 28, 2021) post-show

    Yes, stage invaders early in the show; one or two wore out their welcome and the crowd was happy to see them removed. I find it entertaining and was glad to see the enthusiasm! I think the couple was aggravating a few people around me but I’m not sure of the details. They were literally standing...

    Debbie Mahan IG: new Simpson's art shared for "Panic On The Streets Of Springfield" episode (April 15, 2021)

    I haven't turned on this show in 20 or 30 years but I turned it on this past Sunday because I wasn't sure if it was the "Panic" episode. Instead it was a "vegan" themed episode and it was actually really funny.

    "Morrissey: When Demagoguery Goes Pop" by Armond White - National Review

    It think it's very fair to point out the angle that National Review comes from, but the author's characterization of "Low In High School" era Morrissey, in comparison to Bruce Springsteen as his example of the "archetypal pop-music liberal," seems fair in the paragraph you posted from the...

    Any Philadelphia pre or after parties?

    Yeah, so the show is on a Monday night - not a big stay out night... But in the random chance any Philly spots are doing something Sunday or Monday, I'd be pleased to squeeze it in between VStreet, HCV, and Charlie Was a Sinner dining excursions.
