no worries the folding canvas chairs with the built-in cup holders are still available... and the pond is currently full of baby fish and tadpoles to watch zip around in the lulls.

For $20-25, I can guarantee you'll see them enter and exit the club, with prime alley seats.  
 
 If Seth can swing getting them in, I expect it'll be more than altruism on their part and tix will be smite more than the residency shows.  The off set of not having to travel for 2 weeks, increased merch sales, and likely a share of the concessions means the tickets could be more reasonably priced.  
 
 A one-off in DC would likely cost them more, cost Seth A WHOLE LOT MORE, and cost us marginally more.  They also likely took into account that half the residency crowds were coming from elsewhere and were spending quite a bit on travel so perhaps didn't want to fleece them too much.
 
   There might be a marginal effect of people from Philly, NYC, etc. trying get in but for the most part (and hopefully) it'll be locals, and I think there wouldn't be too much griping if the tix were in the $60 range, more at $75, and positive melt down at $90...but it would still sell out in minutes.  
 
 And as long as policies were put in place to eliminate (well discourage) scalpers it would be people that just didn't mind paying to see that intimate show.  If the residency shows were on the free market, they'd be going for several hundred a piece. EASY. And I dare say it'd still be worth it.
 
 
 Put a different way, if the $20 residency tix were readily available I think many of us would have snapped them up.  Ok then we'd have the task of getting to NC, best case scenario you drive, sleep in your car, and come right back.  Still going to cost you at least $75 in gas, food, etc.  More likely scenario you drive/fly, stay in hotel, and eat and drink like caligula.  About $200-$300 minimum.  Now if they show up at 9th and V and it cost $100, consider it a bargin and you get to sleep in your own bed afterwards.
 
 
 I also like how we've seemed to turn the page on whether anyone wants to see or cares about the "new" pumpkins...to how much people want to see or care about the "new" pumpkins...nice.
