Well, one of my favorite bands, They Might Be Giants
, is coming to a local venue, and I'm not going to be there. Why? Mostly, because it's on a Tuesday night.
Now, I know bands can't have all their shows on weekend nights. But Tuesday? And Jannus Landing is outdoors, and has no seats. That's right, every ticket is SRO. I didn't know that until I went there a couple of months ago for Toad The Wet Sprocket
. The Blonde and I had great "seats" for that show (see my last post), but I have a feeling TMBG might draw a little more than TTWS (the Johns are still actually together, recording albums, etc.).
But I'm getting to that age where (a) I have to remember my earplugs (forgot them for TTWS) and (b) I have to go home at 11 or I'm useless until I get a morning when I can sleep in (so I take a morning off work, or zombie through until the weekend).
Not only that, but there's this almost-seven-year-old complication that requires arranging babysitting anytime we want to do something without her. …
