    It says last day for $18. What does it go up to? $25? Can this sell out or is it just capacity at venues?

    Re: 2014 Lost In The Year End Shuffle

    Banks's Goddess was my album of the year, but I don't think I've seen her on a year end list yet. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart's album was really great, too, but has only got a few nods.
