    ‘Sunday at Foxwoods’? Go Saturday to Foxwoods

    Boys Like Girls (submitted)

    Massachusetts emo band Boys Like Girls has kept a low profile for a while, but in 2023 they released a new album called … “Sunday at Foxwoods”!

    Fortunately, their show Saturday is AT Foxwoods, in the Premier Theater, because it would have been awkward if the concert was at Mohegan Sun.

    At the same time, things have changed in the decade-plus since their last recording. For example, is there truth to the rumor that Boys Like Girls have been targeted by certain PC groups because their name arbitrarily suggests that males are attracted to females — which might send the wrong message to fans if he/she/they enjoy(s) the group’s music but then feel(s) guilty because it’s possible he/she/they is/are experiencing gender confusion?

    I don’t know. But! Should pressure mount and they have to change their name, here are a few suggestions:

    1. Some Boys Like Girls

    2. The “Girls” in “Boys Like Girls” Would Prefer to be Addressed as “Women”

    3. Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble

    4. ______ Like _____ (Fill in Your Preferred Identity Noun)

    Meanwhile, make sure you spend Saturday at Foxwoods so you can see Boys Like Girls play “Sunday at Foxwoods.”

    Boys Like Girls, 7 p.m. Saturday, Premier Theater, Foxwoods; with Ken Vasoli, Tom Higgenson and Will Pugh; $61 and up; foxwoods.com.
