So, funny story, to me at least. I didn't see an opener announced on the ticket, website, or anything. There was an opener. They said their name, but I didn't catch it. Nice enough jangly pop, none of

After staying out of the concert pool for three months, I'm diving back in this weekend: Friday:  Hiss Golden Messenger Saturday:  Parquet Courts and Mdou Moctar

Trying to remain optimistic in difficult times, I scored front row center tickets for Placebo in September. They are considered ADA seats in the (old) theater. I actually scored these 2 nights in a row for Wilco when they had the stage with all the leaves. Nice! The ticket prices were realistic for Placebo so it's not much of a gamble. The difference between Europe & US on venue size for Placebo is pretty vast. In Europe, they can sell out multiple nights in big arenas. In the US, it's small theaters for the most part.

Nice I just grabbed Placebo tickets for NYC. You’re right about their USA popularity. I have seen them a few times over the years in NYC at fairly small venues.

Parquet Courts are the best band out of the last decade in my opinon. I have put some videos from their shows I just saw look me up on YouTube and enjoy!

Would you know when the Riv started to sell separate tickets for the floor and various balconies? Been a long while since I bought tickets for a Riviera show, but I don't remember seeing that before.

This is the first show at the Riv that I've seen that.  But I bought tickets to two other Riv shows for later in the summer last week and they both had the same feature.  I know the Riv is now using the AXS platform.  Tickets in the mezzanine and balconies all are assigned seating.

Interesting. Didn't realize it was assigned balcony seating, too.

 

Typically I always stayed on the main floor -- but the couple of times we went up to the balcony, the brisk walk up the stairs to nab a great seat was a hoot. 

 

I don't remember ever seeing seat numbers - but I can be wrong about that. 

 

I guess the venue/promotor gets a bit more dough this way, too.

Don’t know them I’ll look them up! Enjoy 😎

I’m expecting them to be kind of like The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, but with an Indian twist.  I really don’t know what to expect.  But it gets me out of the house.  :lol

This was really great, by the way.  Their records do not do them justice at all.

Tame Impala 

I love Tame Impala. Sadly, they haven't done a proper stand alone show in the Seattle area. It's all been festivals or @ the Gorge which is a 2.5 hour drive each way. Spectacular venue but a monstrous pain in the @$$!

Ahh that stinks! I feel for those who can’t easily see bands they like. I am very fortunate I am not a far drive from NYC and Philly. They keep adding dates hope you get a chance soon!

Have a great time and let me know how the show(s) are!  

 

I was so disappointed when they only scheduled shows in Brooklyn this time.
