Hey since we got a number of people coming from out of town and because we've got a number of people from in town going I figure this show deserves it's own thread.

Saturday, October 23: Jonsi, Mountain Men @ Marquee Theatre

Luckyman event page (http://www.luckymanonline.com/EventDetail.aspx?eventID=2681) says doors at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $30 plus fees.


I had been considering watching Boris Godunov from the Met via the Live In HD theater cast at 10 am and everyone is welcome to join me but I am also willing to skip that if there are better ideas. But, I mean, shit, five hours of Russian opera? How could that not go over well?

Hey, out of town and in town folks: we could go to the Musical Instrument Museum (http://www.coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=41249)?

John, btw, I went to the MIM with my family and a couple friends, and it's not really a place you can socialize well because everyone is wearing headsets to listen to the music tour. I guess you could look around without headsets, but since listening to music is the point, it might go over well with a smaller group of people. Just fyi.

I have suggested watching a five hour opera and wandering around a museum in silence; I thought I was making it clear I didn't want to socialize with these people.

OK, fine, I had not thought of that. And I didn't expect anyone to throw their arms up in triumph at the thought of seeing Boris Godunov like I did.

I am sure it will be a fun day anyway.

Nice! Ivy, you are more than welcome to crash at my place Thursday night after Interpol. There's plenty of room and it will make it easy for us to leave to Phoenix on Friday.

I think it will be. In fact, the more I think about it I wouldn't be suprisded if it didn't sell out at all. I really can't predict how this show is going to see for some reason. I have not purchased my ticket yet though and I don't think I will until at least the week of the 16th but possibly later.

I'll post this here...trying to get everyone's schedules together for a housewarming party and a lot have people suggested a post Jonsi afternoon BBQ on Sunday. If any of the out-of-towners are still around Sunday afternoon, you're all welcome. Not 100% if that's when it is going down, but if it does, I'll update in this thread.

Is the get together at Jen & Rick's on Friday happening? Am I making chili for it?

If that is not happening who is in town and would want to meet for dinner and/or drinks on Friday?

And are we meeting at Rula Bula on Saturday before the show? What time?

And BBQ at Marc's Sunday afternoon, yes?

captncrzy
10-18-2010, 02:46 PM
No, I think the Jen and Rick party idea took a dump. I think the Rula Bula res is for 4pm. No idea on Marc's bbq.

no
yes - brandon has suggested your place ;) if not your place, i'm up for meeting at a restaurant or y'all are welcome at my place. i just dunno what time brandon, his friend and i will be getting in from san diego to plan, so you'll have to ask him what he wants to do.
yes, 4:30pm, if you haven't talked to tommy about this already, you are not included in the reservation, so let him know.
no clue

mountmccabe
10-18-2010, 07:59 PM
Sadly my place is not a workable option. I wish it was! If y'all come in wanting dinner I'd be happy to meet up somewhere centralish (or whatever) for dinner (steal the idea of Padre's? etc) or drinks or other entertainments. Wooo.

chairmenmeow47
10-19-2010, 07:55 AM
padre's is fine with me. anything that has chips and salsa is good because then i can eat cheaply lol. it would be nice if we could all meet when we get into town, as i will be leaving my car at the airport and it sounds like padre's is downtownish and therefore not far from the airport. we can make it work i'm sure! :)

I mean, we could have it at my house. It would be an easy stop off of the freeway for Brandon and friends. It's just that the wedding crap has sort of taken over my living room.

only issue is that they have to drop me off at the airport, which is quite far from your house and matt is probably going to stay with me friday night. i mean, we could drive out there, but how long i stay will depend on when we get into town and when matt gets into town.

Yeah, my house may not be the best option. Too far out west. They'll drive by it on their way downtown but you'd be stuck without your car until everyone left.
