I just hit Alt+J on my keyboard and it didn't do anything. What a gyp. Done with this band.

Hmmm, 12/28 MMJ. Not bad. Is this GA or a theater?

Capitol Theater's 21+ policy is going to ruin it. Doing that kind of age restriction for Ray LaMontagne on a $67 ticket??

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 2:11 PM

This venue is not gonna do well with that age policy.

"Elton John has been feuding with Madonna on and off for the last few years, but his remarks about her in an interview for Australian TV that aired on Sunday night were harsh, even for him. Not only did he declare her career “over,” but he said she looked like a “fairground stripper.” "

Is there an opener for the xx? Or anyone knows set times?

Posted by Eduardo | August 6, 2012 4:32 PM

1. Cyndi Lauper > Madonna
2. Stones > Beatles
3. Prince > Michael Jackson
4. Portishead > Radiohead
5 . Hummus > all other food forms

Each of these statements are easily factual.

3 and 5 are incorrect. 60%.

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2012 4:57 PM

3, 4, 5 are incorrect.
