Making fun of the House of Blues is like kicking a one-eyed puppy ... easy to do (I once called its lineup a never-ending state fair) but you shouldn't feel good about it afterward.
This was too good to pass up, though: Yesterday I was getting caught up on the last of my post-sickness e-mail. The House of Blues concert alert titled "Coming to HOB: Third Eye Blind!" had moved to the bottom of the list.
I opened it just to see if there was any other band info (there wasn't) and was greeted with this awesome intro:
Get through this "Semi-charmed kind of life" when Third Eye Blind comes to the House of Blues!
I love it. They're not even trying. It's like saying, "Hey, remember Third Eye Blind? No, well, try this..."
Meanwhile, Hootie and the Blowfish "only wanna be with you" at Humphrey's this summer. Cheapest tickets, I'm not making this up, are $70 before fees.
