Joe Jackson To Play Warfield

Joe Jackson, he of awesome song writing, cynical relationship perspective, and general critical acclaim, will be playing the Warfield on October 15th. To be frank, we've never seen him live, but always heard good things. Moreover, his early 80's output is basically legendary ("Is She Really Going Out With Him", "Steppin Out", etc.). He's touring in support of his new album, Rain, and San Francisco is the first night on the tour. From the sound of some recent videos his voice may be a little worse for wear, but that doesn't really account for his stage presence, and by all accounts this show is worth checking out. Tikcets are on-sale now.
