Blue Oyster Cult will be headlining the Columbus Distance Classic post-race concert on Saturday. Really? They were available? I would imagine they've found someone to replace Gene Frenkel on the cowbell. Because, I'm telling you, you're going to want that cowbell in there.
According to the article, BOC has some new material. In other words, they won't be playing Fear the Reaper and Burnin' for You ( a.k.a. the only two BOC songs anyone's ever heard of) until the very end of the set, holding their audience helpless as they subject them to their crappy new songs and preventing the mass exodus to the doors that will certainly follow.
If you run the race, you get in free with your race number. If you don't, it will cost you $20 to see this group of has-beens. Or, never-wases. Or whatever. Let's be honest: I would feel better about wiping my ass with a twenty dollar bill than exchanging it for a BOC ticket.
Vintage movie scene:
"Do you have any Blue Oyster Cult?"
"NO! I don't have any Blue Oyster Cult! I ate twenty pair last time around. Where were you?"
