Today I launch my official campaign to get Bruce Springsteen on the $1 Trillion coin that President Obama will have to have the Treasury mint and deposit at the Fed. Let me first say that while it is certainly a preposterous idea to mint a trillion dollar coin so that the government can pay its bills, the more preposterous idea is to keep playing games of chicken with the debt ceiling every two years and allowing the Jihadi wing of the Republican party...

Musicians are a big part of what we do. However, some of them engage in downright annoying behaviors. Here's a list of ten things musicians do that bug us. Encores : There's no suspense. Want to take a break and get some water? Have at it while you're on stage! No one cares. Just play more or don't. Interludes on records: These are almost never funny or useful. Intros and outros: See above. Generating applause by saying the name of the city they're in: "CHICAGOOOOOOOOO!"

One of the benefits of having D-list celebrity is that you can abuse your powers to try to find Springsteen tickets. So, ergo, does anyone have Springsteen tickets for Wrigley this Friday? Seriously. I managed to get a pair for Saturday, but I can't in good conscience just allow Bruce Springsteen to play a show up the road from me and not make every attempt to attend. Oh, and I will totally stand outside and sing along and jump around and act like every bit the goofball a Bruce Springsteen concert makes me, but I'd much rather get inside.

***1/2 (out of four) While many of its contemporaries in '80s new wave nostalgia drowned their music and accompanying emotions in electronic filters, Twin Shadow's 2010 debut “Forget” embraced the era's tradition of moody music on its own terms. George Lewis Jr., Twin Shadow's creative force, delivered sharp production and musicianship that recalled actual period bands rather than merely leaning on the '80s shorthand of Human League-style synth effects. For a breakup album, however, “Forget” could have the effect of leaving its listeners more impressed than moved.

I'm not going to try to persuade anyone that Bruce Springsteen is better than religion, but devotees of his music know what I mean. We talk about discovering his canon the way people talk about religious conversions. As someone I was particularly fond of once told me, "I figured you can't be that bad of a person because you like Bruce. " Springsteen's unparalleled career will hit yet another peak Tuesday with the release of his new album, "Wrecking Ball," and I'm happy to report it's absolutely terrific, as lyrically powerful and...

So if you're not a Bruce Springsteen fan, this is going to be one long geeky, driveling gush of a blog post, so feel free to avoid having to roll your eyes at me. Combining two of my favorite things ever, a Bruce Springsteen concert and downtown Cleveland (shut up, for real), Tuesday already had a strong chance to be one of the better concert-going experiences of my life. If I concede that Springsteen will likely always occupy four of the top five slots, and if you take for granted that I saw him perform acoustically at the Oval on the Ohio State...
