So I went a little crazy concert ticket shopping the other day to get over a minor/major schooling catastrophe. In addition to the two other shows I have coming up (Bob Dylan and We Are Scientists/Art Brut/Spinto Band), I’m now the proud owner of tickets to the already attended Viva Voce as well as upcoming Chad vanGaalen, Herbaliser, Kid Koala, Yo La Tengo and The Rapture.
In fact, this weekend starts my super two week extravaganza. I go and see a lecture on autoConsequences on Friday and then go to see We Are Scientists/Art Brut/Spinto Band immediately after. Then it’s back to an all day symposium Saturday for autoConsequences and the schmooze/networking function after. Then Chad VanGaalen that evening. Monday is a holiday so three day weekend! Dylan Wednesday; Herbaliser Friday; Yo La Tengo Saturday before a little three day vacation.
There’s at least a few more shows I’d like to see coming up. Tokyo Police Club is coming in November to UBC and I told Dan I’d take him to Frank Black for his birthday. Word on the street has matt pond PA also coming up.
Oh, fall concert season, how I’ve missed you so.
