I attended my last concert — Bon Iver at Edgefield — two months ago. I paid around $45, including fees, for that outdoor show. It was sublime and worth every penny. (NOTE: As I wrote that last sentence, my bank account silently cried.)
With my concert drought in mind, I clicked on Jambase earlier this week to see who was playing in Portland. The cupboard was bare so I checked Seattle.
To my delight, I saw two shows — OK, technically three — in the near future that excited me. The first two featured The National, Local Natives, and Wye Oak playing the Neptune Theatre Wednesday and Thursday. The third starred Florence+The Machine next week at WaMu.
Yes, but … well, the price was wrong. All wrong!
