Bad news: as happened a little over a year ago, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists had to postpone a show at Diesel this week. The show, which was to be this Friday, was called because, as the prolific tweeter explained Sunday, there was a death in Leo's family and he has to attend to that business.
The good news: First, the show's already been rescheduled for Thursday, September 23. That's really close to my birthday, if you want to take me. Also, it's scheduled while Leo is en route to the Pygmalion Festival in Urbana, which promises to be a good time, if you want to take me there instead. And last: this Friday is Devo at the Trib Totalitarian Mediocrity Amphitheatre at Station Square, so now you don't have to decide which show to attend -- go see the weirdos from Ohio!
