Morrissey Heads to Chicago

Morrissey doesn’t need your help. “It’s my life to wreck my own way,” he crooned languidly on “Alma Matters,” two songs into the kickoff date of his latest American tour in Boston last week. Contrary to that sentiment, however, the notorious malcontent seemed exceptionally at ease, both with himself and his audience. Over the course of a tidy, 100-minute set...
