Ex-Smiths Guitarist Johnny Marr Set to Play San Antonio And We Can't Stop Crying


  • Grand Stand Media
So if there’s something you’d like to try – like, for instance, going to see ex-Smith’s guitarist Johnny Marr play in the Alamo City – ask us, we won’t say no, how could we?

If those Smith’s lyrics threw you for a loop and you’re wondering just what in the hot heck we’re talking about, the former guitarist for Morrissey-fronted group is headed to Paper Tiger on this coming Monday, and we’ve been sent into a “Panic” over here at the office.

After five years and several iconic records, Marr parted ways with the band citing musical differences, but we all know working with Morrissey after a while must’ve been a nightmare. Sigh. Oh, Morrissey, maybe if you didn’t cancel on us three times in a row, we’d feel different about ya.

Anyway, Marr is touring in support of his new solo album Call the Comet, released in June. The new track “Hi Hello” sounds like it definitely could be a Smiths song and omg omg.

$35, Mon Oct 8, 7pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com.
