I won tickets to a Concert cause my house sucks


Recommended Posts

So there was this radio contest. You had to say why your house was awesome and why The Darkness should come to your Memorial Day BBQ.

Problems here are:

My house is not awesome

I'm not a huge Darkness fan

I'm not having a Memorial Day BBQ

But unabashed, I called anyways and described by sucky house.

3 floors, really small front and side yard

backyard is all pavement

surrounded by old people, lots of old people. Who like to call teh cops for any activities going on.

Well, Mr. DJ guy didn't think my house would impress the British so I said ok.

Then he asked if I liked the Darkness, I said sure.

The Offspring? Yep

POD? Why not?

Finger Eleven? Uh-huh

Story of the Year? Hells yeah

Want tickets to see them all at River Rave 2004? WOOO YEAH AND SUCH!

So I got tickets instead and thats probably going to be alot more fun.

And my girlfriend is gonna kill me cause she'll be in florida till monday and she loves Story of the Year and Dashboard Confessionals who will also be there.

The Darkness and POD on the same show. How they manage to get so much mainstream suckitude into concerts without creating a black hole of anti-talent I will never know.

I officially love you.

Only semi-decent band on that entire list is Finger Eleven, and even then they're sucky. Story Of The Year is the same old shit that MTV & Co. tries to pass off as 'punk'.

Meh.

Finger Eleven and the Offspring are the only bands worth a shit, and the Offspring is only worth it if they play some of the older stuff.

I would have had the Darkness come, and then poison the Barbecue.

And then bury them upside down in my backyard, and have the surviving members of Queen and Led Zeppelin come over and urinate repeatedly on their graves.

Squancho's got the right idea there. I wouldn't pay to see them, and I'm glad Maxx didn't have to. Just have a little piss break and buy some merchandise during their set.

I sorta like Finger Eleven and I really used to like Offspring, but after playing Crazy Taxi I never liked them that much anymore.

Well, what's to like about them? They're a novelty band, more or less. If I wanted glam or hair metal/rock/music I would go buy Twisted Sister CDs.

I'm british?

No, the closest I get to British people is New London, Conneticut and thats really really not close.

I'm from England sure.....NEW England, Rhode Island to be exact.

Yes its WBCN River Rave.

Oh and here's a full list of bands

The Offspring, POD, The Darkness, Puddle of Mudd, New Found Glory, Everlast, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Story of the Year, The Distillers, Finger Eleven, The Living End, My Morning Jacket, Apartment 26, MrNorth.

Hmm Green Day's been going on and on about The Living End, now I get to check them out.

If there's anyone else in the New England area, WBCN is going to be giving away a ton of tickets to the River Rave on Thursday (I think it's Thursday). They're giving away a pair of tickets every minute from 11 AM till 11 PM. Did they not sell as many as they were expecting or something?

Well, I never heard of River Rave till this year because this is the first time I started listening to WBRU a WBCN affiliate.

I used to listen to FNX who also broadcast out of Boston and are, I'm guessing, a rival station.

So the Rave, despite having amazing lineups each year goes pretty underhyped

FNX is really small compared to BCN. They're a small-time station owned by the same guy that owns the Boston Phoenix (his wife is that judge, Maria Lopez, that had the big controversy because of being more sympathetic to a child molester than the victim). WBCN has been a big time rock station in Boston for ages (I'm pretty sure they've been around since the 60's, at least 70's).

The River Rave is hyped pretty big around the Boston area. It's one of the big summer concerts in the area. They've had some great lineups in years past. This one has some decent bands on the roster. Here is the schedule for the day. Unfortunately, I'm going to be out of town for the weekend.

Shed Stage:

Finger Eleven 1:30pm

Story Of The Year 2:10pm

Yeah Yeah Yeahs 2:50pm

Everlast 3:30pm

Puddle of Mudd 4:10pm

New Found Glory 5:20pm

Dashboard Confessional 6:10pm

The Darkness 7:00pm

P.O.D. 7:50pm

The Offspring 8:55pm

PIT STAGE:

Jake Brennan & Confidence Men 1:00pm

MrNorth 1:50pm

Apartment 26 2:40pm

The Distillers 3:30pm

The Living End 4:20pm

My Morning Jacket 5:10pm

RAVE TENT:

Dave Ralph 5:45pm

The Chemical Brothers 8:00pm

Mocean Worker 10:00pm

Now I have an issue.

I got the tickets monday and asked my friend, Tim, if he wanted to go. Since his parents pay for his gas and its like a 140 mile trip up and back. Well I told him to find out before Friday when I get the tickets so if he can't go, I have time to find someone who can.

So now he still hasn't asked his parents and is being really fucking stupid and it seems like he doubts I'll get tickets and says he isn't going to ask till I get them. That will leave with 1 day to find someone who can go.

I have another, perhaps better friend, Josh who I've known for like 8 years who I could also bring. Josh and I haven't hung out as much recently because we both have girlfriends, but we can still hang out and its like we never missed a beat. Problem with Josh going is he can't drive so we must use the parents up and back, which probably won't be that much of a problem.

Also I'd have to explain to Tim that he isn't going anymore.

So what should I do?

If it hasn't been said before, it will be said now.

I love you Squancho.
