Two More Reasons It Sucks to Be in Cleveland




Most of the time, we're rah-rah Cleveland, but sometimes it sucks to be here.

Like when Bruce Springsteen says he's going to play the entire Born to Run album (you know, one of the greatest albums of all time) ... in Chicago. We'll probably get the usual mix of greatest-hits and new stuff when he plays the Q in November.

Or when the Pixies say they're going to play their entire Doolittle album all over the freakin' world ... except for in Cleveland. That's OK — we'll just save our $450 for that box set that's coming out.

At least we got Billy Squier and a Coldplay tribute band coming to town soon. —Michael Gallucci
