In life, we are often dealing with conflicts. For this particular man, some of the worst kinds of conflicts are those of interest. For all of our technological advancements of the past few decades, we still haven't figured out how to be in two places at the same time. So, tonight, when the legendary Television play this song and a grip of other guitar redefining classics at the Moore Theatre in Seattle, I'll be siding with my loyalty to my hometown and my beloved Kansas City Royals as they take on the Mariners at Safeco Field. My inner jock and inner artist are currently not on speaking terms with each other, but I'll be blasting the intertwined guitars of Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd all day long in an attempt to make peace between these warring factions. If you live in Seattle and hate sports/my hometown, you have no excuse for missing one of the most musically revolutionary and innovative bands to come out of the late 70's, live and in the flesh. Gimme friction, indeed.
Television plays with Jessica Dobson (Deep Sea Diver) at The Moore Theatre on Tuesday, June 23, 2015. Ticket information is available here.
