SINGER-SONG­WRITER Damien Rice This sin­gu­lar singer-song­writer does ex­actly what he wants to. We like that in a cre­ative per­son, but Damien Rice has his de­trac­tors, who claim his pre­cious­ness (whether per­ceived or oth­er­wise) is part of the prob­lem. Try telling that to the peo­ple who bought all the tick­ets for this show within a few hours.
