Music

With Osheaga's lineup being out today, I will be attending for the first time because I must see Radiohead.

I do have a question for more experienced Osheaga goers though. How quickly do the weekend passes usually sell out? I am going to buy the Gold pass, but I'd like to know how much time I've got.

Thank you.

There's some good stuff but lacks depth and I don't care about those headliners.

Hope they add some more bands.

I wonder how long before he changes his name to GoldKiwi?

seriously though, Radiohead is huuuuuuge and i'd love to see them, but the prices are still ridiculous to me. I'll just stay home and listen to Amnesiac again

If you wait, they'll be selling one-day tickets at some point, as they do every year. You can save a bunch.

I meant, whatever the price is, it's worth seeing Radiohead live.

i'm sure it is, they're one of my favorite band, but it's still not enough for me to even consider going tbh

That's something I'd consider, but can I get a one day Gold pass? I've no interest in general admission tickets. Does anyone know?

I'm less of a music fan and more of a Radiohead fan. So there's hardly any price that can be put on me seeing them perform live. I go to several of their concerts per year typically all over NA & EU.

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.

This is completely OT, but I just realized today is 10 years to the day since I joined this joint.

Runner77, I guess I'll go ahead and change my name to TinKiwi instead.

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?

Thank you!

Your Gold reference got me thinking in terms of names for wedding anniversaries.

Quote:
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.

Osheaga is so overpriced these days.

As for Radiohead, I'm pretty dissapointed that they decided to play Osheaga instead of headlining their own concert. They were amazing during their In Rainbows tour at Parc Jean Drapeau back in 2008.
