My dad just tells me, "Oh hey, I heard Coldplay is at Darien Lake in June!" and is confused when instead of jumping up and down, I say, "what the hell."
Sure, I'm excited that I get to see one of my favorite bands live at a very convenient location, but I'm kind of angry because this summer, I'm going to spend ridiculous amounts of money.
I just went to see Dropkick Murphys, which cost me 40 + 55 for the train. 95 extremely well-spent dollars.
Here are the other events that might be stealing my funds this year:
March 23rd - Ben Folds at Waterstreet (with jim... and Meholick!)
April 26 - Third Eye Blind at Brockport (they're at canisius april 19th too)
April 29 - OAR at RIT (also at Fredonia May 2nd, I believe)
May 27th - Dave Matthews Band at Darien Lake
June 1st - Coldplay at DLake
June 12 & 13 - DMB at Saratoga Springs
Warped Tour at DLake - I'll go if Flogging Molly is there, but Less Than Jake and Big D & the Kids Table are on the tour too! :]
Allman Brothers come around every year, I can't imagine they wouldn't play in the area this summer. Obviously going to hit that up with my dad.
You might be saying, well, Molly, no one is forcing you to go to any of these concerts! While this is true, if I decide not to go and don't buy tickets, by the time the concert rolls around, I'll be sitting home alone, bored and wishing I went.
To justify this spending spree, I have been working since I was 15 and saving every penny. I'll work this summer too (but not at the town pool, which is closed this summer :[ ) and so I think I deserve this. It'll be worth it.
