I have had it up to here with TicketsWest and that dang blasted McDonald Theater. The Pixies added a second show to their stop in Eugene last week, unbeknownst to me. I received an email from Flog on Monday and quickly checked the theater's website and TicketsWest. Both claimed seats were still available.
After I work, I rushed over to Music Millennium and....
...was told by a Elvis/punk record clerk that the show sold out in five minutes flat.
It's now Wednesday and, according to both websites, tickets are still on sale. That does it. I'm throwing down a gauntlet. I AM GOING TO SEE ONE OF THESE SHOWS.
At this point, with both performances more than a month away, I'm not sure how I'm going to pull this off. It could involve a police battering ram, 300 live chickens, a robot made out of styrofoam and a grocery bag full of smoke bombs but I AM GOING TO SEE ONE OF THESE SHOWS.
