I would never financially support such a ludicrous ticketing model with my money.
You do realize that once upon a time this is exactly what people used to do, right?
You do realize that once upon a time people applied leeches to their body as medicine, right?

I might also add that in 1993, my sister and I waited in line to participate in a lottery (yes, a lottery...no guarantee you'd get to buy tickets) for INXS and that alone was part of what made the experience special. Most people showed up in pairs, but we'd all start talking and trying to pair up so that we improved our odds of getting in. My sister's lottery ticket wasn't called, but mine was. When you see a "big" band in a smaller venue and invest a little time and energy to make it possible, a certain type of die-hard fan shows up. The concert becomes a bigger deal. When Michael Hutchence hit that stage, the energy in the club was totally electric and I'll never forget how much we all had. When they ended with "Don't Change", it was one of those special moments because it felt like he was making eye contact directly with you. I saw them in a bigger venue later on and it wasn't the same thing. When I saw the Foo Fighters at the Black Cat and waited in line for those tickets, I met a couple people that I'm still actually friends with and hang out with on a fairly regular basis. I wouldn't want to do that for every show, but to be honest, it has the potential to be a fun time. I just hope the rain will hold off that morning.

Anyway, K8teebug, I hope that you'll actually have a fun time, meet some cool people, and if you can still snag me an extra I'll be eternally grateful and be your own personal runner to the bar for the show. Thank you!

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats Recap: Had a night planned out with friends for the Nats game which was cancelled, so we parlayed that into cheap tickets for the show. I'll preface it with I had heard maybe a handful of songs prior to this show.

Lines: B- (quite long, but wow, quite efficient!) Was in line way down the dock and in the Anthem in under 15 mins.
Sound: C- (maybe I'm a snob, but this doesn't appear to be getting any better) So loud, so booming, muddy everywhere
Soap and Water Dispensers in Bathroom: B+
Hutch's personal touch: Solid A

Lots of bros high fiving and yackin' throughout the entire show, but all in all, fun band, a bit cheesy, but good times.
