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.
