For about four months in 2000, we were seriously into Travis' The Man Who, an album of easy listening Radiohead-lite that gained a foothold in the States thanks to catchy single "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?" and a B-side cover of Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time" that got more than a few illegal downloads on Napster. Nowadays we laugh about it with our college buddy--"Remember when we went to see Travis at Stubb's and actually liked it?"--and pity lead singer Fran Healy, who's gone from the toast of the Britpop world to playing a 7 p.m. set opening for Keane and Ingrid "Here, take my sweater" Michaelson Monday at the House of Blues. Tickets are $35 to $45. Call 214-978-2583 or visit hob.com.
