I must admit, seeing Days of the Newsinger-songwriter Travis Meeks on an episode of Intervention a couple years back was a bit of a shocker. Not because he was on the show, necessarily. And not because he was addicted to meth instead of rock star mainstays such as cocaine and heroin, either. I just always figured the guy from Marcy Playground would beat him to the punch. Or maybe one of the kids from Eve 6. If you have any of these records in your collection, I weep for you, but feel free to check out Days of the New 8 p.m. Friday in the Cambridge Room of the House of Blues, 2200 N. Lamar St. Tickets are $15 (or about two hours pay from your retail job at Town East). Call 214-978-BLUE or visit ticketmaster.com.
