Rob Thomas coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall
Over the years, my relationship with Matchbox Twenty has gone something like this:
1. Hey, that new song Long Day is kind of catchy.
2. OH DEAR GOD PLEASE MAKE IT STOP.
3. Hmmm, upon my 1,000th listening, I suppose Unwell isn't THAT bad.
4. (see step two, repeat ad infinitum)
So despite my unabashed affinity for all things '90s, including Matchbox Twenty's supposed "peers" like Third Eye Blind and Our Lady Peace, I probably will not be in attendance when Rob Thomas comes to Ruth Eckerd Hall at 7 p.m. Sept. 26.
Tickets are (*ahem*) $51.50-$91.50, and they go onsale Friday at noon. Go here for the details.
