If anyone has – or knows of – ‘spare’ tickets to one of The National concerts in January I’m interested – very interested - in buying them. Damn they sold out fast.

  1. I wonder why they skipped Wellington? Boxer is a hell of an album

  2. “I wonder why they skipped Wellington?”

    Oh … I could start listing the myriad problems with Wadestown and go on from there … . Or perhaps it’s just Wellington’s slogan: “Wellington – where you go whenever there’s no available venues in Auckland.”

  3. Dunedin – where you don’t go even if there are no available venues in Auckland.

  4. The default position for most bands seems to be Auckland, then Chch, then maybe Wellington if they can be bothered….

  5. Wellington – where bad spring weather reason # 5gazillion&one “we have big equinoxes” is like the fat kids “big bones”.

  6. Well, kahikatea, when we have our magnificent new covered stadium we’ll get all the big acts: the two remaining Bee-Gee brothers, Psuedo Echo, Mouse on Mars touring the 10th anniversary of “Idiology” … it’ll really put us on the map, I tells ya!

  7. …comment in poor taste given the weather related train crash and the casualties that I assume have occurred.

    Comment by blackspy — September 30, 2010 @ 5:09 pm

  8. Rest easy, blackspy. No casualties … just a couple of banged up trains.

  9. Oops … apparently 2 people in hospital with suspected spinal injuries. Didn’t mean to make light of things.

  10. Hope they are OK.

    Danyl, I see some national tickets on trademe http://www.trademe.co.nz/Travel-events-activities/Event-tickets/Other/auction-320200055.htm

    I think High Violet is quite a bit better. They’re trying to write zeitgeisty lyrics now, and they’re one of the rare bands to have been improved by the effort.

  12. I got mine :)
    Fuck I’m excited. But I’ll leave it to you in my will in case I die before January.

    Also High Violet > Boxer.

  13. I’ve got two, if that helps

    If you’re willing to sell them to me, yes. Otherwise no.

  15. If you didn’t learn your lesson when the first concert sold out in 5 minutes and sort yourself out for the second, then I have no sympathy. That’s at least what my mates are telling me for missing out.

    Also as suggested above, High Violet > Alligator > Boxer

  16. any suggestions for music other than the National?

    Lucinda Williams, Nick Cave, She and Him, apart from that I’m at a loss of where to spend my tax cuts on.

    Comment by NeilM — September 30, 2010 @ 10:10 pm

  17. NeilM – if you like that list, I can suggest both Neko Case and Okkervil River.

  18. I’m in the same boat. They would be awesome at the town hall in Welly.

    I know that, cos the nice Mr Chin told me so.

    Here in Wellington, we’re going to be similarly put on the map and get lots of film industry investment by putting up a big sign saying ‘Wellywood’

  20. Third show announced! Woop woop!
