Lifetime at Webster Hall (more by Brian Woodward)
Lifetime

Good news for us, good and bad news for "The Fest". Lifetime has pulled out of their appearance at the Florida Punk Festival, citing Peter Martin's forthcoming baby. Dan Yemin commented:

"We're sad to say that we're going to have to cancel, or as Tony so kindly put it, "bail," for Fest 10. Pete and his wife are expecting their second baby, and at their most recent doctor visit were told that this precocious creature is coming sooner than expected, which means that Pete understandably needs to stay put at home right now. Unfortunately, there are no guitarists (anywhere) good enough to replace him, even temporarily. We did, however, find a replacement band that's at least 75% as good."
In their stead... Kid Dynamite has been added!

I am sure that Pete's newborn will be happy and healthy by the time that Lifetime return to NYC for a show at Europa on January 7th alongside "Special Guests TBA" and Iron Chic. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (10/18) at noon. Man, that TBA gets a ton of shows.

*are better

BV presents English 101. Lifetime, a punk rock band, consists of more than one individual band members. thus a plural noun. thus "Lifetime are better than Kid Dynamite."

and yes, they are much better

I'm gonna start a band named Oprah and play a triple bill with Lifetime and Oxygen.

Should be a real tuna fest there.

Not as good as the Smiths.

Hey 1:37 if you're going to be snarky and correct people, please do it correctly. Lifetime refers to a single thing or a collective noun. So this example would use a singular noun. Lifetime is better than Kid Dynamite. Truthfully I don't care who's better though. I also doubt either of these bands care.

If Title Fight really is the special guest, then why not announce it as part of the original line-up? It's not like Title Fight are all that special that it needs to be a "secret".

Title fight is playing the next day in Philly - not at europa
