Although I work hard at keeping this page from being of any real use to anyone, I wanted to let you know that Nick Cave tickets are on sale today for a show at the Crystal Ballroom for Monday, September 22nd. Aww! Nick’s spending his birthday with us! Reasons to love Nick Cave:
* He’s so goth, he wore flip-flops on Ron & Fez’s radio show, and was STILL goth.
* He has had amazing rock-n-roll hair for 30 years. Unfortunately, now all his promo shots are cropped at the temples.
* Dig, Lazarus, Dig is a record that makes other middle-aged rockers cower in shame.
* Nick wrote the story and soundtrack for the incredible and bloody cowboy movie, The Proposition.
* He did the soundtrack for another great movie, The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, and did a cameo as- wait for it- a musician.
* He’s also doing the soundtrack to the film of Cormac McCarthy’s book, The Road.
* Nick wants to be a cowboy, and you can be his cowgirl.
