Otherwise Engaged: The Cure

It is an unfortunate reality for the serious concertgoer that on occasion, there will be more than one show on any given night that you really, really, REALLY wanna go to. Since the vast majority of us don't own a time machine, nor have the ability to either clone ourselves or split ourselves in half (or thirds or quarters depending on the night in question), this tends to present a problem. Difficult decisions are made based on a variety of variables (perhaps some of you even make lists of pros and cons), and ultimately, a show is chosen. But those other shows are still gonna be killer, and I'd like to give a little face time to the shows that, while I can't go myself, are still highly recommended.

There are a few bands that every music lover with any modicum of good taste really ought to see at least once in their life. The Cure is one such band. I saw them in the 90s, so many moons ago, and it was an incredible gig. If you've yet to see Robert Smith and company, get thee to Merriweather Post this evening. And even if you've already seen them, go again. It's never enough (see what I did there?). Wednesday, I'm in love.
