oh my god, whatever, etc

An Open Letter to Ryan Adams:

Dear Ryan,

I know most people will say that there is no way that one can blame you for the civic strike that has moved your show from the Orpheum on the 28th to the Commodore on the 29th, but based on our past, I'm sure it's your fault somehow. Remember that time you canceled your show after I'd already started driving the 500km to get to it?... for an "ear infection" (code for: I'm on speed balls, heeeeeey). Well, at least I found out about the show moving this time in time to get rid of my tickets and go see Daft Punk instead.

Oh, but you know what was a totally good trick? Rigging that Straight contest so I won what would have been front row seats if the show had actually been at the Orpheum on Saturday, but are now a pair of GA seats for Sunday that I won't be here to use. Hopefully they can find that bitch who puked all over herself and everyone around her last time you were here and give them to her.

Love,
Quinn

PS: Easy Tiger sucks.

Arctic Monkeys are at the PNE Forum with the Coral on September 30th. The pre-sale password is "QUICK."

The legendary Nick Lowe is at Richard's on October 10th.

Tori Amos is at a venue TBA on December 3rd. One of her split personalities opens.

Pride Tiger is at the Plaza on September 9th.

The Raveonettes are at a venue TBA on October 29th.

Oh, and on Monday night I made it down to the Lamp to check out Azeda Booth. I was initially in shock that their singer wasn't a woman (which was based on hearing their recordings), but they were pretty great. Check them out when they're back in town.

Atleast you didn't PAY $101 for a pair of front row tickets for your room mate and her best friend, only to get word on Tuesday that the show had been moved to the non-seated Commodore. PISSED.
