Andrew Bird's show at the Greek held a spot on my calendar for months but I never bought tickets. On the day of the show I looked at my schedule and thought, hmmm, perhaps I'll end up going somehow.... Sure enough, I got an invite a few hours later. I can thank my friend for that since he couldn't make it and offered up his ticket. That was last week. Yesterday I got a last minute invite to see Jet at the Key Club. The original show buddy got sick the day before so I was the lucky beneficiary of yet another free ticket. It was the perfect opportunity for my high-school friend and I to catch up and see a band that I hadn't listened to in years!
We talked about getting tickets to see The Sounds later this month but they're all sold out. Planning can be overrated.
