Those weekly e-mails I get from Ticketmaster are really starting to mess with my life. Not to mention my bank account. I have a habit of buying tickets to concerts on the spur of the moment, even when I have no one to go with. I always end up finding someone to go with; I guess I just have music interests that not a lot of my friends have. The funny thing is, my interest ranges from absolutely ridiculous how old are you type music, to really indie not many people listen to music.
I have to draw the line at buying tickets for Enrique Iglesias, which I found out about this morning through a Ticketmaster e-mail. My obsession with his music (not him, he kind of creeps me out) is a bit ridiculous and Sara is the only person I know who shares it with me. And since she has class on the evening he is in Boston, I am going to restrain myself from purchasing tickets because I really can’t think of another person who would attend this show with me. Back in high school, I dragged my friends to Ricky Martin and they still make fun of me for it. Whatever, I say. You’ll never look back and regret seeing him shake his bon-bon. I can’t help it if I think an Enrique Iglesias concert would be amazingly fun.
I already purchased 2 tickets to Ryan Adams fully knowing none of my friends really care about him or listen to him. And tomorrow, I’m sure I’ll purchase tickets to Drive-By Truckers and the Hold Steady even though I’m not sure who would be willing to attend with me. But since I missed DBT last time they were in town, I’m not missing them again. Luckily I have some pretty great friends who usually agree to give the music a try. Soo friends, start listening now.
Because my mom was insanely jealous that I got to see Coldplay a couple weeks ago, when I heard they were coming back in October, I immediately bought her tickets for her birthday. She thinks she’s “too old” to see Coldplay, but I disagree. When I found out Jason Mraz was coming in Oct, I also snatched some tickets to see him. Luckily, Chels and Sara said they would go too, after they both said, “I thought of you when I saw he was coming!” And I’m super excited to see Ingrid Michaelson in October with Meg too! She will also be at Ryan, so it’s good to know someone who shares my taste in music.
According to StubHub, Boston is the 2nd most rockin’ city of 2008. I’m not sure how accurate this is and I think it may only be based on StubHub sales, but still. If we have such a rockin’ city, we may as well take advantage of it. So many legends come through Boston and I want to see every single one of them I can. Not to mention, the Enriques and Jason Mrazs. Hey, I refuse to be ashamed.
