Ugh. Tickets go on sale on Monday Aug 2nd. 35 bucks for premium tickets.

The box office opens at 11am. I have to be at work at 11:35. Problem.

I'm taking Monday off from work so I can buy tickets for myself and a couple of friends. I can pick you up a ticket if you'd like. I'm planning on buying premium tkts. Let me know....

Sounds good.
How would you like to arrange this?

Do you want me to get you a $35 tkt or a $25 tkt.? And how many do you want?

How about we set up a meeting place to exchange tkts and money? I'll bring my friend dietcokehed just in case you're a psycho killer. (One of my favorite songs!)

Sounds good. I'll want one $35 ticket please.

Psycho killer is one of my favorites too. Songs, that is, not careers.

Let me know where you want to meet.

I don't know about place, but day and time can't be until Sunday after 1pm if I'm involved... However, if you want to take my momma with you she'd probably go :)

Sell your soul (if necessary to go). That concert's simply amazing. David hasn't slowed down at all.

Ok, I'm feeling better about this concert. When I first read the description up there I was sorta thinking, uh, opera? I was still gonna go, but...David Byrne singing opera? Guess that's what I get for saying the Modest Mouse concert was too loud, huh?

But, I did a little google search and found this review of a recent show and it sounds pretty good. Better than just David Byrne singing some opera.

He's got white hair in that picture. That freaks me out, for some reason. I'm watching Stop Making Sense again (I went and bought the cd today so I can listen to it at work) and I guess some stupid part of my brain was thinking that I was gonna see the David Byrne I'm watching on my tv.

I want a time machine.

Stop Making Sense just completely kicks so much ass. "Girlfriend is Better" is one of the most rockin' songs evah!

I don't mind his white hair.

Don't forget you ear-plugs!

The only sign of aging David has is that white head of hair of his. And yes, Stop Making Sense is a cinematic masterpiece. I love the performance of Crosseyed and Painless in there. The opera singing is a little strange in his recent concert, not to say it wasn't interesting and/or awesome, but 90% of the time the audience could dance to the music. The strings never seemed out of place.

Surely I don't need earplugs for this concert, do I?

David is wise enough to know he doesn't need his amps at 11 just because they can go that high.

yeah, you're probably safe without 'em.
