Yeah, I didn't go. I suck at life. Mostly, it was because I hate that venue (Terminal 5), but I think I am just going to have to suck it up and start going to shows there. A lot of really great bands are choosing to play there, but when I saw the National, who are amazing live, the acoustics were so bad I wanted my money back. This was quite close to when it opened, so perhaps they fixed their shit.

I still regret skipping The Hold Steady the last time they came through town with Art Brut. I didn't want to drive to Lawrence on a week night. Weak shit.
