Look what I just scored tickets for!!!!
Damn, I'm good.
I saw Jeff Tweedy (without Wilco) at the folk fest last summer and he was spectacular. I'm so pumped.
Plus I'm going to see my darlings, the Constantines, in a couple of weeks. I actually got ticket numbers 7, 8, & 9. Not bad, but nowhere near as good as the sharp-eyed and quick-fingered Stephanie, of course. Do you remember when she got ticket #1 for the Matt Good acoustic show? That was great.
No such luck on the Joel Plaskett show. It's at the HiFi Club, which is not all ages. This is not a problem for me, of course, and hasn't been for about a hundred years, but I wouldn't go without Eva because she's a bigger fan than I am.

Awesome!!! Do recap everything for us. Many congratulations.

Thanks, Will. I'm pretty proud of my ticket scoring prowess. Don't worry, I'll be yapping your ear off about all the concerts (and I expect no less from you).

Tickets # 7, 8, and 9? You know what that means in numerology, right? It means Kick (#7) Ass (#8) Experience (#9). I think you're one of those blessed people (like Stephanie!).

Barbara said...

It makes me want to buy a ticket to something...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Wow, Michelle, I never knew that numerology was so cool! I may have to change my lucky number from 6 to 8 because it would be pretty great to have a lucky number meaning Ass. (and quite fitting as well)

Well, Barbara W, you happen to have Radiohead (whom I know you are a huge fan of) AND the Streets playing in your town. You could go hang with the cool kids.

You know I found the mug and the tshirt and the water bottle. I am guessing that is where you got the picture so you know that already. But for anyone else who shops online there it is. hmmm an online treasure hunt can be organised

Barbara said...

Me too! I am too cheap to buy you a tshirt... they sell em online.

Will said...

You got it Barbara. Seeing Destroyer on Monday - then switching it up with some literary events.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Whew, you had me worried for a minute there, Barbara W. You kidder you.

Looking forward to hearing all about the Destroyer concert, Will, especially seeing as Dan Bejar did not tour with New Pornographers. Literary events, eh? Cool.

Congrats on this big score - I hope you have a blast!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Thanks Phlegmfatale! I really don't know what I spent my money on before I started going to concerts again. Diapers I think. Concerts are way more fun.

Thanks for liking it! :)
