Top Five Must-See Phoenix Shows This Weekend
Huey Lewis and the News - Ovations Live!, Chandler - May 18, 2013
Huey Lewis was not Cool even when he was cool -- even when Sports was impossible to avoid, he was that goofy guy with the huge album and all the hit songs. When he sang that the heart of rock 'n' roll was still beating, he was singing it to a bunch of people who insisted on believing it was his fault that rock 'n' roll was sick.
All that ambivalence seems like a waste of some great hooks. So god bless Funny or Die, which gave the zeitgeist an excuse to enjoy his most ubiquitous singles by casting him in a very meta remake of the Huey Lewis scene from American Psycho.
Even better news: He murdered Weird Al with that axe just in time for you to go see him (and the News!) in Chandler.
