Point of Parlimentary Procedure

Is it tacky to bitch and moan about not being able to score tickets to a benefit concert that sold out in a split-second? Most likely, yes.

So I won't go on and on about how irked I am that tickets went on sale at 5pm on the nicest Friday evening in a month and I decided to go out for happy hour and get tickets later that night. D'oh!!

Anyway, it's for a noble cause and I hope a lot of money is raised. And who knows, maybe they will realize that there is still a creative spark and do some more shows. Yes, that is my positive spin on things (however if they were also playing this gig then I would be pulling my own hair out).

Best wishes to J. Robbins and his family.

Ah. The dismemberment plan. I didn't even try to get tickets as every single show I've ever tried to see has been marred by some greater power that doesn't want me to see them.

Meh.

Good news, indeed. Let's see if it is equally hard to get tickets for this one as well.

MA - I take it you fell victim to the Ft. Reno rainout during the "farewell" tour. I skipped that one altogether. But, having seen them several times it is definitely worth the effort. "Back and forth, and back and forth, and back..."

I fell victim to that, two shows in Philadelphia that we canceled and a show in Baltimore.

I am meant neither to see them nor Radiohead.

(I only got to hear the soundcheck at Bull Run).

But I'm over here. :)

And by we, I mean they.
