I did something very impulsive today.
As you know, Alt-J is having a 10 yr anniversary tour of an awesome wave. Tickets for the show here in Denver are crazy expensive. Last I checked, around $300 a ticket.
But see, I don’t just like this album. I looooove this album. Wholly and deeply. Not even love. It’s a part of me. It lives in my bones.
fuck it I decide. I’m just gonna do it. I click over to buy it, but I realized they are here Nov 29, and I’ll be in stupid Vegas for work. ARGH.
then I was just kinda glancing at their other shows, out of boredom and a little depression. the tour pretty much wraps up after Denver. But I see there are three shows in a small-ish, 21+ venue in Seattle Dec 1-3. I looked at ticket prices. One ticket is only $89. Hmm. Isn’t that interesting. Seattle isn’t that far.
Then I checked fights. Cheap crappy flight, only $75 RT.
HMMMMM. ISN’T THAT INTERESTING.
So I did it. I bought a ticket and a flight to Seattle for one day to see alt j.
I guess it’s not that crazy but it’s pretty crazy for me. I’m very excited. Fly in, see alt j, leave the next day.
It’s gonna be so great.
I considered Portland but since I’ll be there in late January for work I figured Seattle was the better choice. Plus the club is 21+ so no dummy kids.
