SpiralCure, Nadine, and Stephanie will try to help with updates tonight, but I'll be happy to take more help in case of problems. So if you're going to the show and wouldn't mind sending in the live setlist or anything else, please let me know. Twitter, email, text, Facebook, whatever works best for you. Thanks!

If you're still looking for tickets, I will be posting any last minute offers on Twitter (I'm @CraigatCoF) and here.


The Cure Deer Lake Park FAQ (Thanks Trent & Lisa):

Ticket scam?

Has anyone had contact with an Amy Pierce squeaks187 (at) gmail (dot) com about Atlanta tickets?
She had this listing in the tickets for sale: Section 103, Row D, seats 4-6, $325 for all 3. Squeaks187 (at) gmail (dot) com.

Might be a scam going on.

Help with the setlist reports?

If you are attending any of the upcoming shows and can help with sending in the live setlist reports, please let me know. I'll be at Denver, Chicago 1 & 2, and Miami 1 & 2, so I can cover those 5, but I need reporters for the rest. Thanks!

Mother: A Cure Tribute in SF tonight


"Here's something for Cure fans in the SF area that's totally different. Heklina the host and creator of the legendary drag night called Trannyshack (now called Mother) is hosting a Cure night. She's a fan of shoegaze, goth, and The Cure. She was at the show last night and will be hosting Cure drag performances this weekend. The drag queens & kings are top notch.
Here's a link to the event being held at Oasis In San Francisco (Thanks Hector)
