Collective Soul at the House of Blues, Cleveland

TODAY’S THE DAY Collective Soul’s playing at the House of Blues in Cleveland. Sadly, this will have to be included on my list of travel bummers.

Not that we’d have to travel far: Cleveland’s only an hour from us here in Youngstown, Ohio. It’s just that I badly wanted to see that show! But when Brian checked on ticket availability, all the seats had been sold out.

There were some tickets left for “standing room only.” But I’m at the age where standing up at concerts is not really my bag anymore.

Plus, we were weighing the cost of those tickets against our need to save more spending money for our trip to Quebec in early July.

(I reckon the Montréal Jazz Festival will be some heavy compensation for missing Collective Soul.)


Update June 2009: I did finally get to see the band live:
