City Planner: Friday 11/24
Panic! at the Disco @ Target Centertoday's A-List: "Though their accelerated ascent to big-time rock stardom has provoked suspicion among indie folk convinced that shitty dive bars are where real expression hides, the precocious pretty boys in Panic! At the Disco might be emo's most assured, ambitious artists. With its Broadway flourishes, circus-music interludes, and synth-pop breakdowns, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, the Las Vegas quartet's million-selling debut, sounds like nothing else currently being peddled at the Hot Topic cash-wrap. Panic's live show is similarly unique—expect dancing girls and a Moulin Rouge-inspired stage set. English post-punk darlings Bloc Party were scheduled to open the show, but earlier this month drummer Matt Tong suffered a collapsed lung, so they've canceled. Warped Tour vets the Plain White T's open instead, along with Jack's Mannequin, a tuneful emo-rock outfit led by Andrew McMahon of Something Corporate."
