In last Friday’s issue, Rich Lopez praised the Scissor Sisters new CD, so we were excited to hear this morning that the Jake Shears-led retro band was going on tour, with tickets on sale this Friday.

Then we saw the schedule. No Dallas date. Nothing even in Texas. The nearest place is Denver or Atlanta, both in separate time zones. This sucks.

It’s not as if we thought Rich’s review would cinch the deal, but you gotta lotta love for this queerband and hoped they’d show some back. And they are going to Wisconsin??!!! Oh, well. It’s a tough summer concert tour season, as evidenced by the cancellation of 10 Lilith Fair dates. Bring us da noise, guys! Bring us da funk! (AND bring us whoever’s ass is on that album cover.)
