The Killers are coming to Agganis Arena on 01/26/09. The ticket prices are a little rich for my blood, but I guess if they can get it, they might as well.  I’ve heard a lot of nonsense that their latest album Day and Age is no good, but I’ve really come around to The Killers (having superficially liked them all along) recently. “Human” and “Spaceman” (especially Spaceman- possibly the only song about alien abduction I might ever cherish) are definitely their best songs to date.  The album overall is alright when they aren’t trying too hard to sound like The Cure (“Joy Ride” is a heinous approximation of “Love Cats.”)
