Maybe Willie *AND* Sturgill . . .

Willie Sturgill
May 27
Anthem

I had to look him up. Apparently he's dead.

So much for me trying to make a clever Pittsburgh Pirates "We are Family" era reference.

Interesting... so they cancelled the show at The Lube?

Ticket sales appear to be abysmal for Hershey as well, I hope it's not cancelled.

Jesus Fishstick. Who has $100 or $200 to drop on every good show that comes down the pike? Doesn't anybody in this town have 529's, 401K's, maid service, or home improvement budgets to dump their money into?

My advice.

Load the family up in the hyundai Saturn in September > drive two hours north > purchase most likely $20 tickets or less > better line up > Tröegs pours (could possibly be out of the space friendly ounce to cost ratio) >> Drive home.

Thanks. That is a nice plan but there are a few flaws.

1. The Saturn is long gone.
2. My wife doesn't like live music, or car rides.
3. My kid doesn't like *my* music. Except for maybe the Beatles and Queen, and two Wilco songs.
4. I don't think I could drive two hours that late at night. Especially if I've had a few overpriced Troegs pours.
5. I don't like Sturgill,and I've seen Willie enough (unless he was playing my back yard for free beer and weed.)

I was actually asking on behalf or the other financially prudent, moderate wage earners of the world. (And no, we don't have maid service.)

Can we get an Elvis booking as well?  Maybe some sort of secret 9:30 Club gig?

Father John Misty is going from playing The Anthem (max:6000) to the Jefferson Theatre in C'ville (max: 750) shortly after. That's quite the drop in capacity even at the Anthem's smallest configuration.

UVA's semester won't have started yet and Charlottesville, along with surrounding areas, don't come close to the population that DC and it's suburbs have. However, I do think that a booking at Sprint Pavilion (capacity: 3,500) a couple blocks away from the Jefferson makes a hell of a lot more sense.

Borns played Anthem and are booked for Jefferson Theater 3 days before FJM.

Washington DC population = 693,972 (2017)
Charlottsville VA population = 48,017 (2017)

I'd say they're lucky that they are getting a show :)
