My City's a Sucker: Rufus Wainwright forgets where he is

Considering his love for the stage, it's not surprising that Rufus Wainwright's live shows border on Broadway. There's costume changes, witty banter and a few over-the-top covers. The sound at his shows is perfect, crisp and clear without the fuzz of other rock shows.

But it's still not Broadway. Maybe I'm getting miserly in my late 20s, but tickets for Rufus' show April 28 at the Belly Up are $35.

If you fancy the cost, he'll be playing with a full band and likely will be playing songs off his new album, "Release the Stars," which comes out May 15.
