Regina Spektor has announced that she'll be playing the Beacon Theater on June 17, just a week before her new record, Far, hits stores. Tickets go on sale this Friday at noon, and if you buy tickets, you'll get a free downloads for two songs from the new record. I like Regina Spektor very much, so this is good news, but oh how I wish she was playing a week earlier, in Williamsburg, at the Northside Festival.
I'm going to be doing this a lot, by the way — looking at show listings to see what bands that turned us down are playing NYC shows a few days later. And I swear to god, if I see that the Thorns of Life are playing, I'm going to kill someone.
