concertos, with only one ‘o’

Yes, that’s an awful title. I know.

My favourite way to give back to musicians lately is to attend concerts instead of buying CDs. Consider that the vast majority of artists will only get half a dollar or less per CD sold, while they get a decent percentage of the ticket price at a concert. After a debacle a while ago where I totally forgot to buy tickets for the No Doubt concert, I’ve been really trying to spot concerts that we would want to go to and snap up some tix. (And missing Sum 41 tickets was not my fault!)

Anyways, we currently have tickets for two very different upcoming shows: Sleater-Kinney and Zwan. One’s an all-female indie punk-ish band from Seattle, and one is a new band from ex-Smashing Pumpkins Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlain. Variety is the spice of life, you know… damn, I didn’t get tix for Swollen Members either!
