Saw Queen with Adam Lambert here in KC a couple of weeks ago. It was excellent. If rock and roll subtlety is your thing, you'd not have enjoyed it. I didn't' get a lot of pics, and most of them sucked because the venue was heavily fogged to maximize the laser effects, so here's a shot of the laser effects. The little silhouetto of a man there on stage is Adam Lambert.

Concerts vary in price by city even before the scalpers get them...

Shabbey Road @ Wagon Wheel, Quakertown 11/11 9pm, admission $0.

$0 is what Quakertown can afford

But seriously, these are the prices for arena shows. All the artists in those arenas, at one time, played small clubs where you could go see them for $10-$20, and see them up close. They might graduate or fall back to 1000 seat theaters for $40. Or even 400-seat theaters for $25. Where the sound is 100% better and the experience is 100% better. In some cases you could even meet the band, if you hung around.

But go ahead, pay $100 to see Stevie Nicks from two football fields away. (It's really the only way she'll look and sound like she did in 1977.)

Also, Uncasville, CT? They mean Mohegan Sun, CT; there is no good place name to describe where the massive CT indian casinos are. Middle of nowhere, CT.

Right, Mohegan Sun would ring more bells than Uncasville.
The Tower theater in Upper Darby, PA (Philly suburb) was a great place to see groups before and after they hit the big venues.

And they seem to have placed Delaware in the western part of Maryland. Or created a new state. Or something. WTF?

What? There are no venues/cities listed in DE or MD.
DE is hidden under the DC bubble, and the only thing near western MD is the Pittsburgh bubble.

I was talking about the borders of the states. MD seems to be split up into two states. And the shape of western MD reminds me of DEL

Oh, I see what you mean. A lot of the national maps, especially crude illustrations like this one, have trouble with that area. The smaller area maps usually do better, but it is a fucked up arrangement with the width of MD between PA ans WV is only one mile at one point. And WV has that flag like it's a long load. Hard to capture on a big map.

Don't worry glatt, when the designers take over they'll fix that shit.

I hadn't seen that XKCD.

I always forget about XKCD and then when I remember it, I am happy that I have a dozen or so new comics to go off and read.
