About a year ago, I joined a mailing list filled with people who couldn’t make concerts last minute and were trying to unload their tickets. In fact, all concerts I went to last year were of a second-hand nature, except of course the ones that were free. There’s something pleasant about not having something unexpected work out last minute, and since joining the mailing list, I’ve relied on this type of serendipity for almost every ticket purchase I have made for a concert.
To date, this has included Vampire Weekend, Dave Matthews Band, and John Legend. Next week Dispatch will join that list.
