Title: Show Conflict(s)
Post by: killsaly on February 07, 2013, 03:49:13 pm
I am trying to limit myself to no more than 4 shows a month (trying to keep it low for different reasons).  This month I am already going to (for sure) the Evens on the 9th, Roomrunner on the 21st (and probably Roomrunner/Dope Body on the 23rd since the 21st show is free), and the Secret Mountains record release party with Jacober, Smoke Bellow, and Which Magic. 

The last one is harder.  These are my choices, all in a row, and I can only pick one...
1. Bleeding Rainbow at DC9 (13)
2. Psychic Ills/US Girls at Ottobar (14)
3. Ehse on Ice (15)
4. Astronautalis/Why?/DreamTiger at Ottobar (16)
5. Bosnian Rainbows at Ottobar (17)

I am leaning towards Ehse, since it would be a different kind of show, but Bosnian Rainbows could be great, they might get big sooner than later (plus the awesome shoegaze band Marriages is opening)... BUT a late Valentines date to see Astronautalis would be fun... And Bleeding Rainbows would be loud.

I'm conflicted on whether or not it's worth paying 75+fees to see Phoenix and Guy Clark Jr. do shorten sets at the Sweetlife festival.  The rest of line-up just doesn't thrill me...

My first choice musicaly would be bleeding rainbow.  But it is in DC long drive.  So Why? might be  a good option. 

Ehse would be a no go as I can't stand Lexie Mountain Boys or Ed Schrader.

If I were you I would go because Yeah Yeahs are playing and there aren't too many bands better live than them.  I don't know who this guy clark jr dude is.  You could miss his set and do some pre-game in the parking lot which would save you  money on beer when you get inside.

Bleeding Rainbow would normally be a good choice, as I work in DC and can go after I am done (same with RGC), but I really wanted to do that weeks show as a date, so Ehse would definitely be the frontrunner, since Ice Skating and experimental music only comes to Baltimore once a year; (BUT, with Astronautalis, we are both huge fans of his, plus http://dreamtigerdream.bandcamp.com/ (http://dreamtigerdream.bandcamp.com/)will be a future star when her album drops).

i was looking at the lineup and realized that I had heard and liked some of  Solange's tracks (aka Beyonce's little Sister).  Kendrick Lamar did nothing for me...  Right now I'm having a hard time buying  an "expensive" ticket four month in advance for a festival I'm not over jazzed about.

I like that Dream Tiger song.  Seems like that will be a pretty awesome show.  I guess ice skating is more romantic though.

10/10:

Lower Dens and Beverly at Rock and Roll Hotel - This would be my third time seeing Lower Dens, this year (and in total).  I have yet to see Beverly.  I really enjoy the music of both bands.  However, RNRH is horrible and I try to avoid going there.  BUT, the Lower Dens show is FREE, and I already reserved two tickets.

Versus

Hannibal Buress at UMBC - I have not seen him before.  I have not been to a comedy show since... 2005 maybe.  I really enjoy his acting and stand up.  Tickets are fairly cheap.

I don't think I've had a literally defined show conflict, but there's been lots of times when there's a great show on a Tuesday and another one on Wednesday and "oh man, the wife will never go for that one"

Actually I do remember one genuine conflict. It was about 10 years ago, when Franz Ferdinand was playing its first ever show at the club and !!! were playing the Black Cat and I was so torn, but reluctantly chose FF.

The problem ended up solving itself because I got kicked out of 9:30 for smoking weed in the bathroom before FF came on so I walked over to BC and saw !!!.

little angels hover over me, as fortunately this has never happened to me
and I'm a repeat offender...at pretty much every music venue in town ;)
although these new vape pens have pretty much eliminated the smell and the lighter (noise and visual)
so my risk profile has greatly diminished

Security guy at Echostage patted me down and had me take it out and thought he was going to eject me and confiscate
then was like 'is that hash...no sweat, just looking for molly and stuff' (kid had died few nights before)

Yeah The Mars Volta show was a no brainer for me. Who would have thought this would be their only D.C. show ever? And they got Saul Williams to open! Contender for favorite 9:30 show of all time.

Now it is a triple show conflict with Dilly Dally (new grunge throwback band) in addition to ICP and Wye Oak plus BSO...

I feel like Dilly Dally will tour quite a bit over the next year, and I will have a chance to see them at a better venue...

Grr
Jake Bugg - 9/29 (flavor of the month, no one I know likes him...but I really would like to catch this)
Luna - 9/29 (Seen 4-5 times and their most recent 930 reunion show...lots of my friends will likely go and biking distance from my house)

what hurts is both are seated venues too

I know Jake sold out his last 930...but this one is still available
Luna won't sell out and if it does...won't be until that month

Jake...also didn't want to fork over $17 for the 'convenience' of buying online, so need to swing by the club to get these

the funny thing is that in the real word Sideofblackenedbacon is trying to rally his friends on Facebook - including me- to go to Luna... some already bought tickets in order to go to the show with SideOfGrits who already told us he bought his ticket for Luna... I guess if worst comes to worse he can give his ticket to Space Jam and then he can have some of the pitcher of beer I'm getting...oh wait a minute.. I don't see SideOfMelon giving his ticket away so nevermind on that...

dude you're so deluded sometimes one wonders... the thing that is racist is using an average to stereotype an entire race of people...not to mention its only a few years anyways of difference in the averages between white and non-whites anyways... whatever..
Title: Re: Show Conflict(s)
Post by: Space Freely on May 06, 2016, 03:01:05 pm
I bet the difference is much greater in the Washington DC area, where a disproportionate amount of white people are highly educated people who choose to delay having children until later in life, while the non-white population is disproportionately poor and choose to have children at signifcantly younger ages.


This in turn no doubt contributes to higher fertility rates among non-white women.

stop digging!  the idea is the same: stereotyping a group of people based on race is kind of...racist... there are plenty of black people having kids later in life.. and plenty of white people having kids earlier in life....

saying things like "black people all like to eat watermelon and have babies in their teen years..." kind of became unacceptable and accepted as racist a few decades ago....

well Birchmere capacity is 500... I really don't think this will sell out although you never know... I will not pay any charges as I will get my Luna ticket night of show or stop by venue (I'm tempted by Peter Wolf on June 1 so maybe if I go I get a ticket then..)..$35 already feels like a lot to me! But show prices are just really going through the roof here in this area.. I mean even Alejandro Escovedo is $35 and Delbert Mclinton is like $45.. there are hardly any shows that cost less than Luna at the Birchmere...


I think we can't take out Space Jam until Julian returns...the board could not withstand it.... maybe we can work out a trade between them... sort of like for like if you will.... maybe they could be on the board on a rotating basis going forward?

They charge service fees at Birchmere even if you buy the tickets at the box office the night of. At least that used to be the case. Not sure if they charge the entire fee or just part of it.

ok then.. I'll start pinching my pennies then.. thanks for the warning! That does suck.. I think that rules out Peter Wolf for me..although maybe i can find a way to outsmart them.. i note CHris Issak tickets for the Monday show can be had on Stubhub for $60.. they cost $95 plus charges I think..


4) Ticket Service Charges:
Ticketmaster service charges are set up by Ticketmaster and we do not have any say in the matter. Tickets purchased at the Birchmere Box Office, will have a $5.50 service charge per ticket. This charge is for our Box Office Staff, Parking, and Security. ?We want you here, happy & safe!?
*As of July 1, 2005 the City of Alexandria has passed an Admissions Entertainment Tax of 50 cents per ticket sold. This tax has been added to the Service Charge. Therefore all tickets purchased at The Birchmere Box Ofc will have a $5.50 service fee, which includes this new tax.

I have a triple conflict for next Saturday. 

The Snails at Ottobar: Pros; the Snails are always a good time.  This would be free with my Ottobar pass. Cons; I have already seen them twice, including once this year.

Agoraphobic Nosebleed at Black Cat: Pros; I am really digging the sound they have on their new EP.  I have never seen them before.  Cons; I hate the Black Cat main stage. 

Hello Taiwan Tour at the Crown:  Pros; This will be a ton of artists.  I have only seen some of the Baltimore ones, all of the Taiwanese rappers and idol groups will be new to me.  I like the Crown.  Cons; 11 artists??? That is a festival.  I am not sure I want to do a festival this weekend.

Married almost 6 years.
One 6 month old child but my parents live close by so babbysitting isnt a problem.
We are both Skins fans.
Bought tickets before I realized it was on her birthday.
She is also a mild fan of the band and wouldnt "mind" going. 

I think we could go out for an early dinner that afternoon (we both took the day off), go to a bar for some of the Skins game and then hit the show...but I'm lazy and thats a lot for a Monday.  We'll see.

October 13th has several shows that I am trying to choose between.

- Jpegmafia, CURTA, Butch Dawson, eu-IV, Zheep at The Windup Space (local hip hop show featuring three of my favorites (JPEG, Butch, Zheep) and two people I have never heard)

- Discharge, Eyehategod, Toxic Holocaust, Old Lines, Humanmania at Baltimore Soundstage (I will probably not do this one... Although the lineup is sick, at least for the top three bands)

- Merchandise, Public Memory, Flasher at DC9 (Merchandise made one of my favorite "post punk"/whatever releases this year (along with Preoccupations being my other favorite of 2016) and Flasher are always good.  I do not know the other band, but if I really like them after checking them out, it could help my decision)

- DJ Shadow at 930 Club (My fiancée expressed desire to go to this, but she does not usually want to go to shows on week nights.  I think it would be fun, even not having loved his newest record (and she definitely has not heard it)

well you got to go with your fiancee.. after all you yourself wrote that whenever you go with her its awesome cause for some reason she only wants to go out with you a couple of times a year.

I would not make that decision solely based on her.  She is going to three or four shows with me in the time between now and then, so it is not the only time she will go to a show.  She wants to go to the other ones more, and they are (mostly) all on the weekend. 

The words "for some reason she only wants to go out with you a couple of times a year" are not applicable to my relationship.  I never said anything like that.  I said she does not go to many shows.  She goes to everything she would want to.  So do not worry about "some reason" or anything about me.  Thanks.

Do you want me to ask random, unsolicited questions about your family?

I know Julian posted a fact sheet about you...

But I tried to not memorize all the details or pay much attention since I do not like you or care about anything in your life.

I am leaning towards Merchandise, by the way.

If you go to shows 200 nights a year and she goes with you 2 nights a year then I think you should value those 2 nights.. I thought that is what you said so don't argue with yourself! I am agreeing with you.. those rare opportunities are extra special!!.... even if DJ Shadow is not your 100% favorite option that night just the fact your fiancee- heck she might even be your wife by then- wants to go is important, don't you agree?

I go to around 100 a year.  Probably more like 80.  Not that anything is your business.

Don't you even remember saying that?

I am going to go back to not talking about my fiancee on here.  I mentioned her as a factor in going out, I was not trying to talk to you about anything personal in my life.  Please do not bring her up.  My life is none of your business outside of what I post.

Would you want me asking random questions about your wife and kids, jokingly or seriously?  No, it would be fucking creepy.

I could give a fuck what you care about dude.....you posted about your fiancee a while back.. all kinds of stuff.. so just chill the fuck out... if you choose to share info and bring her up (nobody even knew you had a girlfriend- you don't seem like the type honestly- much less a fiancee) then it becomes a part of the public record... just like my humble abode's square footage has been recited ad nauseum by Julian... its just the way it is...

That is not the way it works on a public forum my friend.. nobody cares what you "ask for".... you got to roll with it.. I didn't ask you to +1 Julian's comment earlier today.. you felt like doing it.. Fine... no skin off my nose... same rules apply here... I don't control what you post and you don't control what I post.. get it?

What?  Plenty of people on here have met her before.  I have made a lot of friends on here.  You are not one of them. 

You just seem like a guy who can't really relate to people... very introverted.. extra sensitive...gets bent out of shape at the drop of  a pin..... has trouble dealing... and since you go to hobo rock shows 200 nights a year and the rest of the time are posting on this board its hard to visualize you having a girlfriend much less fiancee but if you say so I have to take your word for it....

Listen.. if you don't want people to comment about your "fiancee" (chuckle chuckle) just don't bring her up you know.. in like a public forum? I thought it was an important factor in clearing up your show conflict which you raised yourself?
