Calling All Rush Geeks! Calling All Rush Geeks!
Yesterday Rush announced new tour dates for their extended Snakes and Arrows tour, or as me and my wife call it "We Want To Retire Tour." Thankfully Indianapolis is on the list! The lads will be playing here on Wednesday June 25th at Verizon. I plan to be there with my throwback Signals shirt and will probably be breaking the bank (or hopefully get extremely lucky) and get seats as close to the band as possible. The last time I saw them in 2004 we managed to get front row seats, so close we could see Geddy's neck waddle. And since my lovely wife will be 8 months pregnant at the time we will be making up a shirt saying "Future Rush Fan" with an arrow pointing down. Any of you Rush geeks in?
Note on Snakes and Arrows the album: As usual the album has really grown on me. The songs I kind of liked or I thought were mediocre I really like now such as Armor and Sword, The Larger Bowl and Good News First. I still don't like Spindrift, Faithless or The Way The Wind Blows.
Another Note: They are supposedly going to be putting out a live DVD of the Snakes and Arrows tour. Shit, how much of my money do they want?
