In the pop culture lexicon, Blue October is en fuego. Just last week they played The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and their white-hot single "Hate Me" has been the No. 1 requested song on Sirius's Alt Nation, with the most adds on alt-rock radio formats nationwide. Not bad for a few dudes from Houston. Pushing a brand-new album, Foiled (on Universal), the band is on a national tour that brings them home today. Expect legions of fans to turn out for Justin Furstenfeld's songs of despair, addiction and other cheery topics.
