It's Like Looking For A Needle In A Stack Of Fake Needles

by Rainier on Dec. 7, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

So (bad) luck has it that my Metallica fan membership ran out earlier this year, making me miss out on the fan-members-only notification that the band was have a week-long concert at a local venue in celebration of its 30th anniversary. With tickets only costing $6, it's of course been sold out for months, but we just found out that they are still letting people in that show up at the door without tickets, so we're going to chance it tonight.

Keeping my fingers crossed!
