Trousersnake Timberlake Climbs on Chicago's SexyBack

When we heard that The Blue Meanies are playing Double Door, and Naked Raygun is playing Subterranean next week, we thought the local music news couldn't get any better.

Tickets for his March 12, 2007 (!), Allstate Arena date are available for presale TODAY -- and today only -- right here. (password: mylove)

We've been listening to his latest -- because filtering the latest in arts and music is what we do -- and admit that while we enjoyed Timbaland's production at the outset, the album doesn't hold up under repeated listening. However we are looking forward to his show, since Timberlake is sure to deck a few photographers while copping all of Michael Jackon's mid-80s (dance) moves. As a matter of fact, someone get us a photo-pass ... we could use the lawsuit money to expand the Chicagoist offices to a second floor!

P.S. Just look at that picture.
