Although we did talk our photographer into showing up
, we couldn't coax any of our snobby-ass rock critics into covering last night's Matchbox Twenty show at the Q. Michael Gallucci was afraid Paul Duccette was going to jump off stage and beat him with his guitar after his story in this week's Scene.
DX Ferris just didn't think there'd be enough blood.
As for the rest of them, we have no idea, but we presume they were at Music Saves
, debating the undercurrent of the subtext of Arcade Fire's latest album cover.
But alas, not everyone with a pen breaks into hives when a band accidentally sells more than 150 records. We enlisted a local fan, 25-year-old Jeff Zaleski, to give us the lowdown on last night's show. Read on for Zaleski's review. And if you see any of our critics stroking their chins at the Grog Shop this weekend, feel free to spill your Pabst on them. -- Joe P. Tone
