So Radiohead played Sunday night at Nissan Pavilion as four + inches of rain was coming down. Many people could not even get there and left, and some that did make it were turned away due to flooded roads. It wasn’t that great inside (though some were happy), but it was worse on the lawn. I’ve never had it quite that bad a show (though my Jimmy Buffet experience wasn’t great), but it leaves me with the knowledge that I need to get there 3 hours early in good weather, and 4 hours early in bad.
My favorite post:
Time spent at the concert: 1 hour, 10 minutes.
Time spent in the car getting to and from the concert: 6 hours, 50 minutes.
* 2 tickets – $66.50 each.
* 1 parking ticket for the only available (metered) space in my neighborhood when I got home at 1:30 am – $30.
* 1 ruined pair of shoes.
* 1 even more ruined pair of socks.
* Seeing Liars’ set.
* Any chance that I’ll ever go to Nissan Pavilion again.
* The credibility of Radiohead’s self-righteous prattling about the benefits of getting to the show via carpooling and/or public transit.
