Not to be a debbie downer, but just from experience, once tickets are on sale they can't change anything. And normally even the band can't get you in.


I've been wondering what this venue is even like, the Congress theatre's normal acts are Latino Acts. Maybe they heard about Jose and thought wrong. :P

i know, i know

but i can try anyways, right?

the congress is nice, don't let the acts dissuade you. it's a beautiful, yet old building; my grandmother used to go to concerts there when she was younger.

Oh. I like beautiful-yet-old theaters.

I mean, really, the Pabst is one of my favorite places around.

The Tennessee theater is pretty old and it's awesome, but I totally prefer the bijou more, I think it's a slightly newer theater but's more intimate by far.

did you see colin meloy at the pabst?

if not, he started encouraging members of the audience to lash out against comments of the theater's beauty from musicians by trashing the place


also, i am totally blatantly bumping the hell out of this, in hopes that ben sees it

No. I was not able to make it to that show. Though, that sounds like something Colin Meloy would say. :D Awesome.

Hey. Lookie what I found on Congress' website:

Q: I'm underage but I want to attend an 18+/21+ show, can I just come with a friend who is 18+?

A: The only time exceptions are allowed to City of Chicago age requirements are when a minor is accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.  A minor cannot simply by escorted by someone over the age of 18, it must be a parent or legal guardian.  Lame as it sounds, Mom or Dad have to go with you.
