Oh yes. I totally know about it, but I’m not going to mention it yet because…well you know. If you have any idea about what I’m talking about, shhhh for now please. I’m very excited about it.
UPDATE: I’ve been getting some flack about this post, so let me just explain a little. This post was not meant to be showing off at all. I realize it’s not a “secret” but I’m absolutely DO NOT want to piss off fellow newsletter subscribers and loyal fans. Does no one remember the Beck fiasco? Hell hath no fury like a load of newsletter subscribers scorned. Especially for people who have public web sites.
And after the really sad crowd at the two Yeah Yeah Yeahs shows at the Bowery…I dunno guys. Sometimes I think the internet is a bad thing. Like a man buying a 20 dollar Arctic Monkeys ticket for 250+ bucks from Craigslist just so he can say he saw the Arctic Monkeys. (True story.) Or how about the time I won tickets to the special Coldplay concert at the Beacon last year and when I was leaving I witnessed these two DRUNK 30-somethings stumble out of the venue shouting and falling over on one another and bragging to everyone how they bought tickets off someone for over 700 dollars?
Meanwhile I’ll see kids standing out in the cold in front of the venue with a tote bag pinned with a Union Jack flag begging for a spare ticket that won’t cost them a semester’s worth of text books–just because they had to be in class when the tickets went on sale, or they weren’t lucky enough to snag a spot. I mean, that’s just not right. It kinda breaks my heart because I’ve been there.
And who knows, maybe I will be there again.
