D-day will soon be upon us. 48 hours from now, I'll be shaky with excitement about the fact that one of my favorite film actors, Mr. Kevin Costner, will be taking the stage shortly ... not to act, or emote, but rather to rock, country-style.
You see, as I mentioned a few weeks back, Costner has his own country band, Modern West, and they are bringing their show to Cleveland, courtesy of the House of Blues.
And I am going.
Let me be clear - I am going because I like the idea of Kevin Costner fronting a band. However, after taking some listens to the band's music, I must say this: it isn't half bad. It reminds me of 90s country music, Garth Brooks era, before it got weirdly poppy and Toby Keithish. Granted, it pays little debt to Willie and Waylon and the boys, but any music listener that wasn't a total asshole should be able to listen to this and enjoy it.
Plus, Costner is helming the ship. How cool is that? Answer: pretty.
So I'll be at the House of Blues Wednesday, trying my darndest to keep my man-crush in check.
You might want to check out the show, too. Tickets are still available, and it will give you an excuse to grab dinner at the House of Blues restaurant, which is pretty good if you dig southern cuisine. Another bonus about dining there: if you eat there and tell the server that you have tickets to the show, you get let in before everyone else.
See you there!
PS - How cool would it be if she was opening for KC/MW? I still have a crush on her from the Stay video back when I was in high school.
