Are you thinking about New Year's Eve?
It was recently reported that the Flaming Lips finished shooting their epic space film "A Christmas on Mars". The movie tells the story of a group of astronauts celebrating their first Christmas on Mars. When their air supply run low they are saved by a Martian dressed in all red. The alien Santa is played by Wayne Coyne. When I read this I immediately thought that it was about this time last year that Wilco and The Flaming Lips announced that they were going to play Madison Square Garden for New Year's eve. Many rumors seem to be floating around right now about the many different shows that New York will host this year. The show that I would like to most see happen this year is the rumored The Black Crowes and My Morning Jacket show. It has been a big year for the Black Crowes. They have toured almost straight since returning from a hiatus. The shows they played at the Hammerstein Ballroom in March were great and they have only gotten better since then. It is rumored that this show will be held at Madison Suare Garden. I feel this room is far to big for both the Black Crowes and My Morning Jacket. This show might be best suited for Radio City Music Hall. Only time will tell what great shows there are this year.
