Great Big Idiot

I wanted to see one of my favorite bands, Great Big Sea, play in Portland.

Last time, it was a pretty spontaneous event. I took a different route home and passed the theater where they were playing later that night. I was surpised to see them on the marquee. I went home, ate dinner as fast as possible, came back, and saw an awesome show. Even cooler, another of my favorite bands, Carbon Leaf, was fronting for them.

Today, the show was sold out when I got there. I knew about it in advance and even wrote it down in my calendar. I should have bought tickets or gotten more details this weekend. I could have even bought tickets online this morning. I wasted time and didn’t get there until 30 minutes before the show started. By which time it was sold out.
