…Despite Your Destination

By: Laurie Gallardo

See the MP3 link below? Click on it. It’s absolutely true; you hear that distinctive set of chords at the beginning, and you instantly know what it is.

Some fans regard the following fact incredulously because it doesn’t seem that long ago, but “Under the Milky Way” by UK band The Church is now 30 years old. The album you find it on, Starfish (1988) – the band’s fifth LP, is revered as a classic.

And now, The Church continues the Starfish 30th Anniversary Tour. After last week’s sold-out night at 3Ten, the band has a second performance tonight, also at 3Ten, 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show begins at 8 p.m.

No doubt you’ll be singing along. As you should. Recommended.
