I am the first to admit I have a very sick sense of humor. I've been a Weird Al fan since I was a kid. When I heard he was coming to Reno I was beyond excited. Then I found out that I might be out of town that weekend, so I put off buying tickets. When I later discovered I'd be free that night I immediately went to the Ticketmaster website and found out the show was SOLD OUT. Really? There's that many Weird Al fans in Reno?!
After a ton of Craigslist searches, I found a pair of tickets. Mr. Bee ventured out to the ghetto to purchase them for me (puffy pink heart love you for that one). Then my AMAZING friend MaryBeth came through with the news that she got me on the guest list for the night! We got to the concert and found out that her contact (who happened to be Weird Al's bassist and was one of the nicest people ever) had also gotten us Backstage Passes for after the show in addition to ridiculously awesome seats. So we ended up giving the other tickets to someone who was hoping to buy tickets there.
If you've read this far, you are truly an amazing blog friend.
