    "Morrissey: When Demagoguery Goes Pop" by Armond White - National Review

    It think it's very fair to point out the angle that National Review comes from, but the author's characterization of "Low In High School" era Morrissey, in comparison to Bruce Springsteen as his example of the "archetypal pop-music liberal," seems fair in the paragraph you posted from the...

    Any Philadelphia pre or after parties?

    Yeah, so the show is on a Monday night - not a big stay out night... But in the random chance any Philly spots are doing something Sunday or Monday, I'd be pleased to squeeze it in between VStreet, HCV, and Charlie Was a Sinner dining excursions.
