The cats at Live Nation sent out an e-mail blast late yesterday trumpeting that Minnesota power-pop band Motion City Soundtrack and NYC's The Bravery will be joining Rivers Cuomo and his crew for the concert, which pretty much justifies the $36.50-$46.50 ticket price.
The show goes down Friday, January 15, with the first act at 8 p.m. The rest of the particulars can be found here.
