Iggy and The Stooges at the House of Blues
TONIGHT (doors at 6:30 pm, show at 7:30 pm; all ages)

Boston welcomes the awesome, venerable and uber-classy Iggy and The Stooges, who perform at the House of Blues on Lansdowne Street tonight. Hugely influential and responsible for raising disgruntled angst to an art form, in-your-face live performance, and the epic stage dive, I recently saw them referred to as pre-punk – how cool is that?

See my Iggy and the Stooges profile on Ryan’s Smashing Life: “It sucks to be ahead of your time… The trick is to live long enough to be fully vindicated and reap the emotional (and financial) rewards of those years of isolation, when you thrashed and screamed and spilled your guts – and waited for the world to catch up.” more…

[No blogger love? Even with my gushing and enthusiastic preview on the highly regarded and widely-read RSL, the House of Blues could not find it in their hearts to cough up *one ticket* so I could attend and review the show. You’d think they might be a bit more appreciative of local press coverage, seeing as how their Atlantic City, NJ show (at the 2300-capacity House of Blues) was only half full. I’ll be covering it anyway, ’cause Iggy and the Stooges rock. Corporate entities = near sightedness.]
