I got us three crappy seats for the Greek show. I tried about four times. Stupid doctor's appointment. :grr: Of course, the appointment kept me home from work today. But if I'd been at work, I coulda tried at 10 when the tickets went on sale. I thought about waiting till Saturday for the general sale, but now I don't have to worry about it.

Either way, we're going.

I tried just to see what was available. Obviously they got progressively worse as I tried. Money is tight at the moment, so we'll just wait & see. We've got 3 months til the show, and we did just see them a few weeks ago

My seats are in the north terrace. You know, the new sections. 3 tickets were one hundred seventy fucking dollars.

This was one of the greatest moments in an epic, great festival.

Ok, remind me never to complain about those seats again. No one showed up in front of us, and it was like we had balcony seats. We could see and hear perfectly.

It was an awesome show, not quite loud enough, but that's the Greek for you.

I'm damn tired right now, with stuff to do, but it really was a great show.

Your friend Mark kicks ass.

If that's still him, he was very very good last night.

Great show last night though I thought the show at the Henry Fonda was better. The guys seemed tired and only played for 75 minutes. I guess it's been a long tour. Also, watching them from up close...not sure if there is a lot love going on between Jack White and Brendan Benson...hope they last as a unit.

Back to back nights at the Greek. The night before was My Morning Jacket. First time seeing them and was very impressed. Great crowd.

We sat next to a record company executive who said that Led Zeppelin is definitely going to be touring and that they are in rehearsals now. I read this online this morning that they're still waiting on Robert Plant to show up but I'm under the impression that this tour is a go.
