I’ve had a bit of luck when it comes to Band of Horses shows. I had the privilege of seeing them record their Austin City Limits show in 2010, still one of my favorite live music experiences ever. It was flat out jaw dropping amazing. Not terribly long after that, we happened into some pretty great seats for the Johnny Mercer Theatre show during the Savannah Music Festival.
Somehow, though, when I got advice that I would want to be downtown Saturday, and The Wormhole Facebook page started teasing the “arena size band, who played Johnny Mercer the last time they played Savannah”, it never occurred to me that it could be Band of Horses. I am enough of a music nerd to make sure I checked hissing lawns and The Wormhole’s sites shortly after 5 on Thursday, though. I immediately hit the “buy” button. The page loaded and I was crushed to read it was sold out. Oh no. Wait…. Refresh….Sold out….Refresh…..Sold out….Refresh……Add to cart? Hell yes, add to cart. Like I said…lucky.
