If you disagree with Ted Nugent's politics, it's tough to like him. That said, he's by no means a stupid guy, and his charitable work for military veterans is without a doubt admirable. His opinions are generally well-articulated even if they do often include threats of violence against his critics. But therein lies the rub: Dude's a fucking prick, and not in that likable-asshole kind of way. No, his general dickishness comes in the way of suggesting Iraq should have been nuked and his frequent suggestions that those occupying the opposite end of the political spectrum should “suck on my machine gun.” Sure, there are plenty of attendees at a Ted Nugent concert who can't wait for his inevitable mid-set tirade wherein me might fantasize murdering Hillary Clinton or threaten to shoot that commie Obama in his non-American face, but some of us just want to hear “Stranglehold.”
6 p.m., it says (must be doors, right?) at The Wildhorse, $35-$90. Here's a picture of Nugent holding John Rich's baby.
