Morrissey

When: Thu., Nov. 17, 8 p.m. 2016

There’s good reason to feel bummed out these days. It seems the whole experiment of democracy has finally failed us, and the free world’s goin’ to hell in a handbasket. Bogged down by uncertainty, it’s hard not to feel forsaken and alone. But, there’s a person out there who will always understand the struggle – Morrissey, the sorrowful lead singer of The Smiths. The angsty champion of disaffected youth, Moz assured us there's a light that never goes out whenever the darkness of heartbreak sweeps us away. It was an important life lesson for generations of fans. In a period of music that was dominated by hostile punk rock, Morrissey wasn’t afraid to cry. Rather than lashing out in anarchy, he demonstrated complete vulnerability in deceptively simple songs with tightly crafted hooks and melodies. Expect good times for a change with charming man and modern rock staple, Morrissey.
