The Verve Plays the Theater at MSG 4.29.8

Tom and I took a pretty quick drive into the city last night to catch The Verve at the Theater at MSG. We'd found out about tickets two weeks ago when there were only seats in the 300 sections. Last week they slashed those ticket prices in half and suddenly the 200 section was widely available for seats. We're a bit suspicious of these tactics, Ticketmaster.

Thankfully, Tom talked me into going, as it was a really enjoyable show and after the small venues that I'd been in recently, it felt like a huge experience. If only the people in our section would have stood up and danced, but that didn't stop us. Fortunately, the two girls behind us were huge fans and quickly jumped up, too, which led to a column two people wide standing in our section and everyone else seated. This might be why I love the small venues with no seating, it at least forces everyone to stand.

Ironically, as I type this, Ben Harper's Drugs Don't Work from Live from Mars started playing in shuffle mode. The music gods are smiling on me again.
