White, Nerdy, and In the Wrong Place
I heard online today that Weird Al Yankovic's on tour. Cool, I haven't been to a concert in several years (I think my last one was a TMBG concert while I was still at CMU).
Now, the tour listing doesn't really seem to have any rhyme or reason to it -- from the west coast to the east coast for a few days, then back again, etc. -- so I may have already missed something local. But the closest concert I can see to NoVA? Harrisburg, PA -- two and a half hours from here.
And for a concert two and a half hours away -- call it four for traffic both going there and coming back -- I'd have to pay $46.50 for a ticket, and that's assuming that TicketBastard doesn't hide any more "fees" after the first couple screens. So if the concert runs until 9:30 (figure it'll start a half-hour late then go for two hours) I'd get home at 1:30 in the morning. And have to go to work the next day.
Dang. I'd heard it's a really good show, too.
