Due to sheer dumb luck, I am going to the sold-out Yeah Yeah Yeahs show tonight. Okay, I don’t know if it’s sold out for sure THIS time, but I DO know it sold out within hours of tickets going on sale last month. So, they changed venues to sell more tickets, and I can only assume this plan was a successful one.
Eileen called me last night and said her roommate Liz had an extra ticket to a concert tomorrow (today).
“What’s tomorrow? Thursday?”
“Yeah,” said Eileen.
“Sure. Wait, what’s the concert?”
“Well, they’re called the Yeah Yeah Yeahs…”
“OH MY GOD ARE YOU SERIOUS.”
“Um, yeah? Yeah, yeah yeah. Ha ha.”
“Yes. I want to go. Oh my God.”
“Really? Okay, great, I’ll tell Liz.”
That is pretty much how it went down. I am breaking the rule of not listening to the band you are going to see the day of because, to be honest, I own four albums (courtesy of Mike) but I only know like four songs. I’m trying to give myself a crash course in “Yeah x 3” before 5 o’clock.
