Damn. You Ever Miss Concerts Cause You Hear About Them Too Far In Advance & Forget?

Recommended Posts

I was looking forward to The Cure playing at the Hollywood Bowl for months.

They cancelled there previous show and posted this one awhile back.

So I decided to check out the Hollywood Bowl website today thinking the concerts coming up and it was last Saturday (3/31). Fuck. I dont like making plans ie. buying tickets too far in advance. I tend to wait until the last minute cause I don't like to be tied down to plans. I sure as hell would lose any notes if I wrote it down. And I dont do email reminders cause I usually have them sent to my 'spam' email that I check once every month or two so that probably wouldnt have helped either.

 

Another example would be while browsing I saw Reggae Night in August at the Bowl.

So chances are I'll see this thread in September and be like damn missed another one.

 

currently listening to The Cure - Close to Me.

Not concerts, but I have my work Outlook calender remind me of things I need to do (I can set them from home and sometimes work from home). I have birthdays, bills, vacation all that. If I was really high tech like all the people with a work Blackberry where I'm at, I'd just have my reminders set for that, but I don't want one.

this happens to me all the time

Sick of it All few years ago. I had bought tickets, they cancelled but got booked again...months later my friend calls me "catch you at the show in a minute, ok?" I had completely forgot about it.

And I was miles away. Had to take all kinds of taxi cabs to get there. Only missed a couple of bands before their set....

I always miss concerts because I don't hear about them till the week of the show by then then the tickets are usually sold out.

Yeah, that's what happens to me.

 

Actually, that happened last week. I read that paul Simon was going to be doing Graceland with David Byrne and Ladysmith Black Mumbazo in a couple of weeks, but it was sold out. Fortunately, I was able to make some calls, and someone came through for me with two free tickets.

 

 

And before any of you homos tell me that Paul Simon is not cool, I will just point out that I'm older than you and have better taste in music.

I've always wanted to see Hanzel+ Gretyl....They're fuckin' awesome.

 

I'd still jam this cd if I could find it.

IOU, I try to save the LA Weekly's in a pile so I can flip through and remember the shows but they end up getting buried under other shit.

 

haha Cure haters. I grew up on that shit classic KROQ new wave shit.

The Cure's been around 20 something years and is still relevant. Not to mention playing at a place like the Hollywood Bowl.

Some chick on American Idol who's decent looking, but no where more spectacular than all the chicks I see at the malls. Besides she's gonna be forgotten in another 2 weeks.

 

CreamyPotatoe, I know the GZA and the rest of the Wu do alot of shows here in LA at the Knitting Factory etc. but im pretty sure he's plays shit from his other albums. The first one is classic and is one of the few albums I could listen to start to finish.
