Argh! (or, how I blew it and didn’t buy tickets)

Well it finally happened. Normally, when a show that I want to go to gets announced, I buy tickets right away. My philosophy has always been: why wait? So I’m not sure that I can explain why I didn’t jump on tickets to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros at Higher Ground when they went on sale a couple months ago. Sure, I’ll see them at Osheaga just a couple days later, but anyone who’s been to a festival can attest to the fact that a set there just isn’t the same.

Maybe it was that the past few indie shows I’ve been to have been completely empty. Maybe it was that I thought Rachel would get them. But whatever it was, the end result is the same. The show has sold out and I will not be seeing this incredible band when they come through Burlington.

Not that I needed the lesson, but it has definitely been learned. Never again.

If there are any good samaritans out there who would like to sell me their tickets (2), I’d be more than willing to pay above face value, as much as it would pain me to do so. Email me at opr@brendanbush.com
