    Last Night: Coldplay at Toyota Center

    Coldplay Toyota Center June 25, 2012 At the risk of obliterating the last remnants of my punk-rock cred, I guess I never really understood all the Coldplay hate. Chris Martin's Ernest Lee Sincere routine puts a lot of people off, sure, and some (lik...

    Sex and the Radio: A Weekend With 97.9 The Box
