Discounted Tickets Available For Magnetic Fields

In times like these, you've got to appreciate the 50% discounted tickets that Cat's Cradle is offering for balcony seats at the Magnetic Fields show this Saturday, October 18th ($13 + $5.50 "(in)convenience" charge) at Raleigh's Meymandi Hall. Chapel Hill's Portastatic is opening the show.

New York's Magnetic Fields are heavy on the reverb, part-techno, part-surf, at least on their diatribe (anti-)"California Girls", part-power-pop, and vocalist Stephin Merritt's baritone voice recalls The Cure's Robert Smith.

Magnetic Fields is currently touring in support of their January CD release, "Distortion".

In other news, David Byrne is making his way to Meymandi on December 8th, a new date added to his US tour of his and Brian Eno's release, "Everything That Happens Will Happen Today". While Eno is not on the tour (grumble grumble), I'm excited to see that Mark Degli Antoni is on the tour on keyboards. Mark was in one of my favorite bands ever, Soul Coughing. This show will include dancers--there are three different choreographers listed!
