The Cure @ Sasquatch 2008 (more by Chris Graham)
The Cure

It's all about MSG lately. Love them or hate them, there is/was....Iron Maiden, Tom Petty, R.E.M. (last night), The Cure (TONIGHT), Coldplay (Monday), and Pearl Jam (Tuesday and Wednesday) - all right after one another. And all that coincided with the announcement that My Morning Jacket are playing that venue too which coincided with My Morning Jacket's Radio City show tonight. Radio City is also where where the Cure are playing tomorrow (note: Radio City & MSG are owned by the same company).

The big difference between Coldplay and all those other shows is that Coldplay tickets were free...to those who were able to "win" them. If you weren't able to win them, I've got one more chance for you. One person who emails BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: Coldplay) will be selected and awarded a pair of free tickets to the free show.

In other Coldplay news, Brooklyn's Creaky Boards are now really famous, and Santogold will soon be more famous, you can stream Coldplay's new album, and tickets for their NJ show go on sale Saturday.

ALSO, The Police are playing MSG.
