I hope this combination of headlining act and opening act stays intact into the U.S. dates later this year. Not that they’re gonna get any closer to me than McAllen, Texas, mind you, but what an apt combination. Both are quite formidable live, particularly if Parthenon Huxley is touring with the Orchestra. The McAllen date is May 19th – even if it’s just Parsons, go if you can.
McAllen? Really? Why exactly? It’s on the Mexican border in a state that many years ago passed over the 50% mark for hispanic population. I doubt that anybody down there even speaks English, let alone enjoys music in it.
