Well, kids. We knew it would come to this. Ted Leo is playing three dates in Ohio and none of them are in Columbus.
May 1st - Playing the Ballroom in Cleveland
June 12th - The Lime Spider in Akron
June 13th - Howard's Club H in Bolwing Green
I USED TO LIVE SO CLOSE TO AKRON I COULD PROBABLY WALK!
Now, I absolutely plan on making it to one of these shows. Most likely it'll be the show in BG simply because I'm a teacher and road tripping during the week is a no-no. At any rate it's going to be spectacular. Leo is awesome on disc and the word is that the live show is equally impressive.
Still, the issue at hand remains the lack of a Columbus date. I'm thrilled that Columbus (and the factory especially) are becoming a "third draw" on the Ohio scene. I think we're getting there. Maybe a direct fan appeal to Ted's people?
At a loss for words.
