Just moments ago, a fine feller from AEG Live sent us the following missive concerning a just-booked show at the new Palladium Ballroom on the South Side:
"Los Lonely Boys is confirmed for Jan 26th and is more than likely going to be the first show."
Guess they figured it's better to open the new joint with a Grammy-winning Texas band with which folks are familiar than a metal act from Jersey whose Web site doesn't even work. Makes sense. --Robert Wilonsky
