J. Geils band the first to play HoB

Something about the Gipsy Kings opening the new House of Blues just didn't sit well with me, so clearly I'm excited as I can possibly be to hear the J. Geils Band is reuniting to christen the new Lansdowne joint.

I mean, I loved "Centerfold" as a kid, I guess, and you figure most ZLX listeners need some good news during the day. Tickets being $45/$125/$160 is a wicked buzzkill, but hey, this is a one-time only reunion type thing. Better have Boston rock royalty being the first to play the new HoB than a French band that plays traditional Spanish Gypsy music with Flamenco roots, knowwhaddimean? This is Boston not Basque Country.

  1. Those ticket prices are pretty ridiculous.

    Of course, if you're strapped for cash or just have no desire to see a withering J Geils band you could skip the show and read Lester Bangs' "My Night of Ecstasy With the J. Geils Band."

    Less money, more noise.
