An Open Letter to The Killers.

Dear The Killers,

You don't know me, but I have been a fan of Hot Fuss for quite some time now. In fact, I still listen to it on a regular basis, even though it's been out for something like two years. I was also fortunate enough to catch you live in Atlanta last summer, and I must say, I was further impressed.

I woke up this morning to our local radio station, 99X, playing the "World Premiere" of your first single, "When You Were Young," off the new record that you're making me wait until October 3rd to purchase. I simply love it, and I just want to let you know that despite all the pressure for you to make this album as stellar as the first, I have faith in you and predict that it's going to be as marvelous as a shoe sale at Bloomie's.

Sincerely,

Me

In other news, it appears that Tom Petty has picked none other than the Strokes to open up for him while he tours in the fall. I certainly hope the Strokes have cleaned up their live act since they were last in Atlanta, or else Petty is going to have to perform a miracle in order to awaken the crowd from a vegetative slumber. Tickets go on sale Saturday morning at 10:00.
