a prairie home companion  
Right, so I was just wondering if anyone is interested in heading to St. Paul on Friday February 29 to see a live performance of A Prairie Home Companion? This show is not going to be broadcast, hence the "live performance" part. It would start at around 7:30 that evening.

What this means for us is that student tickets are $10 apiece if we get them on the week of the show (usually tickets are upwards of $20). Since I work at noon on Mondays, I could just swing over to the Fitzgerald Theater at the beginning of that week sometime in the morning and get tickets. Marisa will head over there the Tuesday of that week in the afternoon because their stupid box office doesn't open until noon during the week and they are closed on Mondays.

The main reason I'm interested in this particular live performance is because the Wailin' Jennys are going to be the featured musical guest that week, and I don't feel like paying $30 to see them in concert at St. Kate's. I'm a fan, but I'm not that big a fan.

So is anyone interested? We could make this an even dorkier excursion and go to Mickey's afterwards.

DUDE that sounds awesome. I'd like to go.

Yay! I have no idea what the difference is between a live performance and a broadcast live performance aside from the obvious. Hopefully things are almost the same.

And anything that includes both food and wailing is a yes on my part.

They don't wail so much as sing sweetly, (un)fortunately.

I wish I could go (this is the second time this won't work out for me), but we had already planned a tenor/mello leap year party for that night. But possibly. I did tell them I "might be attending."

No worries. Like I said, we won't be getting the tickets until the week of the show, so you have some time to decide.

Actually, now that I think about it, why couldn't I go to both the show and the party? A normal performance of APHC doesn't last more than a couple hours does it? And our party won't start until about 10 pm. I mean, old people don't stay up that late even.

True, true. I would guess that the performance would be over around 10-something, at the latest. I can't remember how long they usually go for. Also, Alyssa is going to be going with us, as well.

I might be able to drive you over there that afternoon and drive around the block while you buy the tickets, even if I can't go - unless Special Collections has me work those afternoons, I'm not sure when they are going to have me work.

The problem for me is that I can't go until, like, Wednesday, and since the tickets are kind of first-come-first-serve and we need five of them, I figured it would be best if someone went right at the beginning of the week. But perhaps you and Marisa could go that Tuesday, if that works.

Sorry, that's actually what I meant. I neglected to respond to a comment from Marisa instead of the general entry.
