All you ever hear about now—the new cliché—is how Valentine's Day is a corporate scam and only helplessly lame losers play along with it. You know what? Fuck that noise. Doing nice things with someone you love is nice. And here's something nice to do with someone you love: A bunch of skilled, funny musicians have read Nick Hornby's great romantic novel High Fidelity. Tonight, they'll perform music responding to the book. It's a guaranteed-to-not-be-schmaltzy romantic night out, and you're guaranteed to be surrounded by lovers in love. Deal with it.
