    Cool. That's a great location. I guess urban chicken farming is a thing now in PHX.

    ---headed to Rudimental tonight at the Monarch. HADES gets a $4.00 discount online.

    Awesome about QOTSA. $20 ain't nuthin', although I suppose it comes with the irritation of having to get into the venue.

    Also, and I realize this is a Tucson show, but Cat Power is playing the Rialto at the end of September (the day before Summers End Festival) so I have to make it down to see her. Missed out on the chance in 2006 when my friend reasoned that I could just see her at Coachella, but then she was in the Mojave at night with Carl Cox's bass booming over from the Sahara, making it impossible to enjoy her. She cancelled the subsequent 2 opportunities I had -- Phoenix 2008, Coachella 2013 -- but she seems to have her shit together now and isn't cancelling shows at Morrissey-levels anymore as far as I can tell.

    Yes, you do, Dylan. I'd discuss the last show I was at, but it was in Canada, so not really pertinent to this thread. (At least the Cat Power one is in the state, and somebody could feasibly also be attending and we could meet up should we both be so inclined.)

    BTW, reserved seating for QOTSA (well, and any other band you might want to see at the Fair) goes on sale 9/13. I just hope it isn't like the Bob Dylan show in 2009, where mountmccabe damn near came to blows with some cantankerous septuagenarians who were upset that he, among several other people, was standing up at a concert.

    For those planning on going to QOTSA, you can save a few bucks by buying your fair ticket now on their website (www.azstatefair.com) for $6. Think I'm going to try to make both QOTSA and JEW happen that night. I figure QOTSA should be done by 8:15 which should give me enough time to make it to the Marquee before JEW hits the stage.

    Homer That's not the way she tells it.

    I had to rewind the episode when it was over just to watch that exchange again.

    Pretty sure Cat Power did not cancel her 2008 show since I was there at the Marquee when she played.

    Uh, what? mountmccabe showed up and said they were turning people away because she'd cancelled. I remember because I was living in Tucson at the time and had driven up with mob roulette specifically for the show, and we ended up going to a free MGMT show at Tempe Marketplace instead.

    San Fermin is great. Saw them at SX last year and it was a lot of fun. Large band with horns and just a ton of people on stage having a good time.

    I saw her in October 2008, but it looks like the April 2008 show was canceled. Anyways, here's a slide show from the October 2008 concert from the New Times. I agree with the picture captions.

    I have a question about Comerica Theater. How big is the pit. I have Arctic Monkeys tickets and am wondering how early I should get there for a good spot.

    It is always undersold. Unless you want to be directly up front, there is no need to show up crazy early. Even at the back of the pit, you are still pretty close.

    Ah, that explains it. Thanks for clearing it up. Must not've heard about that show, oddly enough. Unless it happened before I found a job when I moved up here and I couldn't justify the expense. (Come to think of it, this may have been on the night of one of the presidential debates, which may have also contributed to my decision to be responsible and not spend money I didn't need to spend on a concert.)

    Hey, hit me back about Belle & Sebastian, by the way.

    Thanks! I thought it looked pretty small. Looking forward to the road trip and a little R&R in Scottsdale afterward.

    If anyone has any extra tickets to Odesza at Crescent Ballroom on the 23rd I'm looking to buy 2. I dropped the ball and forgot to get them last month.

    Yeah, I'm sure the skirt was the identifying feature.

    hahaha, that was the only article of clothing i knew i would be wearing.

    the show was fucking fabulous. they closed with "driving on 9". a few people asked if they played saints, yes they did. they also played happiness is a warm gun, new year into cannonball, do you love me now, i just wanna get along divine hammer, no aloha, and it was great. i didn't know the names of all the song, but recognized most of them. they even played something new. great show with great people!
