Foo Fighters Bring the Battle to US Airways Center in October
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you? I hope not, but just in
case someone is, there's good news on the horizon. Just after 7 a.m. this morning, X 103.9 announced The Foo Fighters are coming to town, on October 16 at US Airways Center.
I can't really think of a better "modern rock" band than the Fighters. The band's last
album, Wasting Light rules pretty hard, a fantastic collection of beefy, rockin'
tunes like the Queens of the Stone Age-channeling "White Limo" and the pop-rock
done right "Alandria." There's plenty of classic punk connections -- Pat Smear of The
Germs (he played with Nirvana, too) plays on the record, and Bob Mould of Husker
Du is on there, too -but even if you don't care about any of that, the record is chock
full of the loud-ass pop that the Foos have excelled at for years, with almost none of
the balladry that clogged up 2007's Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace, and
even that record wasn't all that bad.
