All Points West Fest: we got our tickets!
Mur and I got our tickets. Quite legitimately, through Ticketmaster, two minutes after they went on sale. Both Radiohead nights (who cares about Jack Johnson?!)
So two beautiful back-to-back summer nights of Radiohead with openers like The New Pornographers, CSS, Mates of State, Kings of Leon, Metric, Sia and many more. Who knows, maybe I'll even learn to like Animal Collective, lol.
We'll ferry over to the island from Mur's apartment in lower Manhattan. Tim and Liese have tickets for both nights too. Can't wait! Mur has incredibly NEVER seen Radiohead (this must be corrected!), the kids and I last saw them in 2003. I also saw them in 2001 in this same location, Liberty State Park, with the soon-to-be-gone Twin Towers in the background. The view was then as below. 9/11 happened three weeks later. Mur's apartment is very close to where the towers once stood.
