DCeptette: Different Names For The Same Thing Version

  1. Isn't Big Yawn just the most extraordinary music resource on the web? Verily, they are nothing less than extraordinary. Somehow, they miss yesterday's widely spread news about the Across the Narrows Festival this October in NYC, are unaware of the festival's name and label several scheduled bands as "rumored." Even better, they relate: "According to their website, Death Cab for Cutie will be playing DC in October, somewhere around the 23rd." Somewhere around the 23rd? Do we get a margin of error or something? What constitutes "somewhere around?" Well it doesn't fucking matter, because they are playing the 9:30 club right smack dab on exactly precisely October 23. Tickets go onsale somewhere around the year 2005.
  2. Off-topic: So, I'm sitting at home and a commercial comes on for something called Supercross: The Movie. It must be asked: what does it say about the filmmakers' overall confidence in their product that they are compelled to remind people that they have made, in fact, a movie?
  3. "The Biggest Missed Connection of All Time": didn't make the final cut for the new Death Cab album. (Craigslist)
  4. Shee-yit. Can't disagree with the beatdown James F. put on Dan Snyder. I predict that the NFL owner the sports world loves to hate is going to enjoy himself a full blown Dickhead Renaissance this year. (YI8DC)
  5. Pete Jennings, R.I.P.

If you cast your mind back you may remember my off-14th Street production of Motorcross The Musical. In order that there be no confusion I insisted that they clearly title theirs in such a way that there would be no confusion.

So please join me next month as I present BMX The Ice Show and a one act I have written called Gleam the Cube Not the Movie.

Funny, you didn't mention the news blurb about the DC anti-war show BigYawn mentioned. Isn't that more relevant?

I can't believe you still read WIH8DC. James F. is over the hill.

I wish I could say this for sure, Jordan (the Manhattan Center Studios concert calendar website if currently FUBAR), but I think the door is open for Death Cab to add a second date in NYC. I'll keep checking after to see if Hammerstein gets booked or not for the day after the scheduled gig.

The same opening is available for a second DC show...as near as I can tell Death Cab has no booking for the next day and the 930 club has no show on the schedule. I find the idea of a Sunday to Monday stand a little odd, maybe that's just me.

cool cool, but i'm going to shoot for that wednesday night show (on sale thursday at 11am), as i am less likely to have a class that night...

SAS said...

Wait - did I miss it? Did you say you knew when tickets go on sale for the show at 9:30 club? I've been here for four years and I still don't understand how one gets insider info on when tickets go on sale there. Do they only list through the 9:30 Club website? It doesn't have the listing up yet.

SAS--

I still have no idea when DCFC tickets go onsale. But I'm checking after it as closely and as often as possible, and will let you know.

As always, it's best to get news right from the bands themselves if possible. Pollstar is a good quick and dirty source as well. But, to get 930 club specific, there are three things you can do:

1. Wander into to No Life Zone and join the 930 club fora.

2. On the sidebar of DCeiver, clikc on the lick marked 930 Club Upcoming Ticket Sales. As you surmise, tickets routinely go on sale LONG before they show up on the clubs official website or in print ads.

3. If you use an RSS aggregator, consider making use of Neurobashing's RSS feed of the abovementioned page. The link is also on the sidebar ("Feeds of Fury: 930 Tickets")

Ha ha ha ha. I certainly enjoyed that one a lil' more than I should've.
