    Yeah it's a bit pricey, but I've found a few tix on Craigslist going for $40. And seeing Rufus at Belly Up is like watching an angel sing in your living room. I need a date!

    Re: Other Reviews Needed

    Like others have said, ANTEMASQUE was exactly what you'd expect from them, which was a solid set, but sadly the crowd was pretty damn small.
    Kimbra was great.
    My friend really enjoyed Phil Selway.
