You are excused if you missed last week's premiere of The Voice, the Carson Daly-hosted attempt by NBC to suck the last gasp of life out of the fading American Idol model. But if Steven Tyler was Boston's excuse to tune into Idol, or at least capture the hyperventilating attention of our city's favorite tabloid, then tonight our music scene has a reason to suffer through singing critiques from judges like Cee Lo, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and uh, the guy from Maroon 5 who shagged everyone in Hollywood a few years ago.
And why is that? Well, because Allston Rock City's own CASEY DESMOND will be appearing on the show tonight, bringing her space-aged synthpop and never-ending red flowing mane to glowing television sets across America. We have no idea what she'll sing -- we missed the first episode of The Voice, we were at the Kills/Cold Cave show, 'member -- but we're sure Casey will do us all proud. Maybe Maroon 5 guy will hit on her in the green room. Maybe Xtina will cry on her shoulder. Who knows. Tune in at 9pm.
