Huey Lewis & The News
Sunday, May 31

“Do you like Huey Lewis and The News? Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in ‘83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He’s been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor. In ‘87, Huey released Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is “Hip to be Square,” a song so catchy, most people probably don’t listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it’s not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it’s also a personal statement about the band itself,” Patrick Bateman, American Psycho. With Scott Miller. $42-$50, 6pm, Floore’s Country Store, 14492 Old Bandera, Helotes,
(210) 695-8827
