MUSIC: The Cure, With Interpol, The Rapture, et al, to Play Merriweather Post in August

From a 9:30 Club e-mail alert:

Single-handedly keeping eyeliner companies in business, Mr. Smith & Co. will return to Washington this summer with an entire package of '80s music. Playing old favorites and new material from their eagerly-awaited release The Cure, this time Friday *we're* in love.

w/ Interpol • The Rapture • Mogwai • Muse • Auf der Maur • The Cooper Temple Clause
August 6
Merriweather Post Pavilion • Columbia, MD

Tickets on sale Saturday, June 19 @ Noon through Ticketmaster

While I'm having a hard time envisioning Interpol -- or The Rapture for that matter -- playing on a large festival stage like Merriweather Post, it could make for a good ensamble for the end of the summer.

It is a 5 p.m. concert on a Friday. That means that traffic on Route 29, I-95, MD-32 and the Baltimore-Washington Parkway will be terrible. Who remembers the "Radiohead/I'm stuck in traffic" fiasco from last August?

Could just go to Cry Night at the Cat and avoid the traffic...besides, Robert Smith looks waaay too scary (for me anyway) now. :)
