Good for you! Never wait for someone to go with you. You'll miss good shows just waiting around for others.

That's the way to do it. I go to the majority of my concerts alone. I don't have to worry about my friends having fun, and I meet lots of new people.

Add Bob Saget on April 11th. Can't wait for it, he's an extremely dirty stand up performer, so seeing "Danny Tanner" do such things will be amazing

This year rather brutally taught me that lesson. Arcturus were playing here and I had nobody to go with. I tried to rationalise it: Garm sings on my favourite albums while their current singer was ICS Vortex (who I also like, but not as much), and I don't really know their new album. Then a few days after the gig, I learnt that ICS Vortex walked on stage and announced "Welcome to the last Arcturus gig. Ever." A few days later, the band officially announced that they had broken up. That sucked so much.

So finances permitting, I'm going to make a point of not missing gigs. Maybe I'll even meet some cool people with similar tastes ...

Before you know it, you'll be traveling alone as well.

Already travelled alone when U2 came. And I'll do it again if Porcupine Tree's possible 2008 Aussie tour materialises. They better come! That'd make my year, and make up for the whole Arcturus thing.

Are we sure we're not actually related?
