Local Pop Culture -- The Difficult to play the Lime Spider

Some interesting items from the email:

Dear Large Mailing List:

As you know, The Difficult doesn’t get out much, but when we do, we rock with quiet dignity. The band will be making its first public appearance since last summer, and there’s no saying when we’ll get around to it again. Per our grammatical demand, all the bands on the bill have names that begin with a definite article followed by an adjective:

Thursday, May 24
The Lime Spider, downtown Akron
With The High Strung (ingenious Detroit pop) and The Same Things (young Akron heartthrobs)


We’re playing first, 9:30-ish, so don’t sweat the weeknight factor.

In other news, I’ve just received word that the Devo book is finally, allegedly, being released in paperback next month. Inexplicably, the publisher has changed the title, but the book is the same, only much cheaper than the hardback:

-- David Giffels
