An alternative rock band from Houston will perform in the capital city later this year.
Blue October is set to play Thursday, May 10 at the Varsity Theatre. Doors open at 7 p.m. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale at ticketweb.com for $28 and will increase to $30 after doors open.
Led by vocalist/guitarist/producer Justin Furstenfeld, the band is wrapping up work on its ninth studio album, to be titled "I Hope You're Happy." A single from the record is due later this month.
In April 2016, the band released "Home," which charted at No. 1 on the Billboard rock albums chart. The title track spent more than six months on the Adult Top 40 song chart.
Though the band started in the mid-’90s, it wasn't until around 2006 that the band broke through with the hit single "Hate Me" from the album "Foiled." (This is the song with the chorus that goes: "Hate me todaaaayyyyy/Hate me tomorrooooowwww." Remember that one?) By 2007, the band had a platinum record and has continued to enjoy success with subsequent releases.
