What was the tipping point for you? Curious to know when you decided to move on and what in particular, turned you off enough not to go back.
hmmm I don't think it was ONE event, but more and more, every show I felt like cancelling and just not going. Having to take my car OR the metro downtown, wait in line (in the cold if it's the winter), get inside and wait for an hour because bands are allwwwwayyys late, hoping the opening acts won't be complete trash (i've seen a bunch of terrible opening acts), being stuck there with sweaty dudes pushing you around for 3h, then having to make it alllll the way back home
everything feels like a hassle at a concert, I think i'm having a concert-depression
I can relate. Even at venues where there is reserved seating, there are always going to be a bunch of people who will stand up for no reason and block your view. And there is that cattle feeling, usually too many people for the space available.
10 years already? You're resilient all right. Props to you and here's to many more.
TinKiwi or TenKiwi? You don't like the gold standard, huh?
Your Gold reference got me thinking in terms of names for wedding anniversaries.
The names of some anniversaries provide guidance for appropriate or traditional gifts for the spouses to give each other; if there is a party these can be brought by the guests or influence the theme or decoration. These gifts vary in different countries, but some years have well-established connections now common to most nations: 5th Wooden, 10th Tin, 15th Crystal, 20th China, 25th Silver, 30th Pearl, 40th Ruby, 50th Gold, 60th Diamond, 70th Platinum.
