I have a confession: I’m kind of bummed that I wasn’t able to pole-vault past Morrissey’s PR gauntlet to preview his upcoming gig. But then again, what question hasn’t already been posed to the Moz at this point in his career? The Smiths will always have a place in my blackety-black heart—haters be damned—and the man’s practically a pop culture legend; so even though his highness wouldn’t stoop to being interviewed by the likes of me, I must recommend paying tribute to the Pope of Mope at Sunshine Theater (120 Central SW) on Wednesday, May 14. As for me, Morrissey won my eternal devotion the first time I heard “Cemetry Gates.” Any lyricist who can seamlessly work an indictment of plagiarists—specifically those who claim words from Richard III as their own—into a paean to Oscar Wilde has my heart. If he’s got yours, too, this 13-plus show starts at 8pm, and admission is $45.
