“Honey, we can go have a romantic dinner anytime. There is so much else going on this weekend… I mean, I know it’s Valentine’s Day weekend and all, but can we maybe wait till next week? I’ll buy those flowers you really like…”
Those of you hoping to have your Valentine’s Day on Friday to leave Saturday free for the raft of wonderful shows coming through town may want to prepare to give/receive a speech similar to the one above. As if your evening of quasi-secluded couplehood wasn’t already in jeopardy with Clutch and Mudvayne coming to The Shrine Mosque and NeverShoutNever, Carter Hulsey and Do Tell & The Rumors at Randy Bacon Photography Studio & Gallery–all on February 14–Lindberg’s just booked Fayetteville, Arkansas-based country-rock group Charliehorse, a frequent traveler to Springfield, for a gig on Friday the 13th. We promise no mask-wearing psychos in attendance, but if your Valentine’s Day is already set to have more to do with Clutch than clutch purses, we can’t promise you won’t have to sleep on the couch afterward.
