Shubert Strikes Again

Yep, the good ol' Shubert Theater on College Street in New Haven will once again host a real rock show come Feb. 20. That's the day when Ryan Adams and the Cardinals will play the venerable venue.

You all know my opinion about this: I wholeheartedly believe that the Shubert needs to hire someone just to book rock shows. I think this is an untapped resource that the city would embrace. Many acts won't play Toad's because there are no seats, or it's a tad too small. Why not lighten up a venue that's dark many nights with music? That's the question my friends.

Anyway, tickets for Ryan Adams go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday and will cost you $38. They are available online at Shubert.com, by phone at (800) 228-6622 or at the Shubert Box Office.

Here's an interesting New Year's Eve option - Fairfield Theatre Company (who - all hail - has brought us Loudon Wainwright for two years running) is bringing in the English Beat to the Klein. Though I'm not a huge fan, it sure beats Hall & Oates at Mohegan Sun or Earth, Wind & Fire at Foxwoods.
