Well, I didn’t make it to either show. Turned out Colony House was sold out despite the fact that it wasn’t posted anywhere online. Thanks House of Blues. So, that was a giant bust. I should mention there were two resale tickets on LiveNation for $65 for a $14 show. So, there’s that. Also, the Panic! show was too high of a price for me to get out of my pajamas on a Sunday. So, another week without a show. Maybe that will change this week…

Well, this is the first year in a few years that I didn’t attend SXSW. And while I’m a bit bummed about missing out, I was able to keep in the loop with Kristen on most of her adventures so I don’t feel like I missed out tooooooo much. I mean, I missed out but at least I kind of felt like I was there in spirit. And in the spirit of SXSW, I’m hoping to make it out to a show or two this week. Also, if anyone has any hookups for P!ATD tix, give me a shout.

Well, I’ve finally kicked the cold. So, that’s progress. We also lost an hour but as I don’t have curtains on all my windows, I was waking up an hour early due to the excessive sunlight so it’ The big thing for me this week was Comic Con badge buying on Saturday for returning members and I have secured a badge for all four days! That’s pretty darn successful. I’m hoping to also get preview day when the open resale happens. I did nothing musically inclined, which I know is incredibly boring but I also had a fairly busy week. It seems like all my weeks are busy and I’m not even going to SXSW this year! I’m sure I’m totally going to be missing out but I honestly needed a year off. Please be sure to check back and follow Kristen though! She’s so excited for it, you have no idea.
