at the ticket window or online?

Online (I of course chose to print the tix rather than paying the willcall fee as well as skipped some BS $7 "ticket insurance"). 

I couldn't make it to the window since they're only open 11-3 and prices go up DOS.  Do you only pay face value at the window or is it the same way?
i think it's $2 if anything plus you have a real ticket to put in the back of your cd case . . . for those who still have cds.

The show was really poorly attended.  I could understand people not wanting to pay $15 for them when they're the quintessential type of live show that someone would describe as "boring", and then there were the Halloween parties and the like on Saturday, but there were about 50 people at the venue, which was well less than a fourth of the ballroom.  Kind of bizarre to see.  When the Sea and Cake took the stage there wasn't even a regular ovation for them, just 4 or 5 claps spread out through the gigantic room.  I kind of felt bad for them.  But they trudged through and even came back for an encore.  Good show, especially watching John McEntire (also of Tortoise) on drums.  Disappointingly they didn't play anything from Oui but Jacking the Ball and The Argument were highlights.

Also the opener that greeted the small crowd was Matthew Friedberger, the brother from brother/sister duo The Fiery Furnaces (who I actually still like, esp. Blueberry Boat).  His solo performance was telling a "40-minute ghost story" where he would tell a story/comedy bit about working in a graveyard and getting visits from his great grandmother in his dreams which would occasionally turn into opera ballads and walking around the stage to sometimes sit down and play a keyboard and synth and a couple of bass solos.  It wasn't as bad as this probably sounds but it was still bad.

Thursday July 10, 2014--Scott Miller (solo, without The Commonwealth) will be appearing at the Taft Ballroom.  Unless I get some crisis at work, I'll be there.  It's hard to beat $12.00 advance tickets ($15.00 day of show)

9-12 The Features Taft Ballroom

I haven't heard a lot by this band but everything I've heard has been good.  And it's hard to beat the pre-day of show price of $12.00.  Yes, this one just might be a go...

Tayfo, what is the difference between your regular, common garden variety birthday and your motherfucking birthday?
