Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes you win AND lose
First email (from Flog):
"Pixies, 09-04-04 Bend, OR - Les Schwab Amphitheatre
Pixies + Les Schwab = yippy."
FINALLY, victory was within my grasp. While I'd missed out on tickets to the Pixies' shows at the McDonald Theatre both of which sold out in 10 minutes flat there was no way I would miss this. Tickets when on sale at 9 AM last Saturday. I digently clawed my way of bed at 8:59 and signed on to Ticketmaster. $42 and ten seconds later...Sucess. Was. Mine.
Second email (from Sho of Wazeth fame TM):
"Did you know the Pixies are playing the Bumbershoot Festival in September? "
ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH! If I'd only known, I could have seen the band, for a mere $15, in the middle of a kooky arts festival in the heart of lovely downtown Seattle. Instead, I'll now be driving five hours to the dusty yuppie playground that is Bend, Oregon.
CURSE YOU, PIXIES! You're more vexsome than leprechuans and you're even more rotten than those rotten Smurfs!
