Antony & the Johnsons
The new album from New York's premier art-song divo has encouraged speculation that Antony lacks a sense of humor, which is akin to suggesting that the success of Paul Blart: Mall Cop reveals America's secret affection for movies about clumsy fat people. He didn't call it The Crying Light for nothing, people! Deadly serious though it may be, Light is also heartbreakingly gorgeous, just as the Johnsons' performance tonight is sure to be. Bring the hair on the back of your neck.
