Lucero at The Jinx – more pictures

I love to see any venue sold out. On a Monday night? Even better. Bill’s post covered this, but it really was a great night, both musically and socially. Lucero was in good spirits, The Jinx staff was having a good time, and I saw a lot of people who were potentially going to be hurting Tuesday morning. Oh, and the new wallpaper in the men’s room is awesome. Seriously.

Anyway, there was a good bit… wait, what’s this in front of me? A soapbox? Huh, let me stand up here and maybe you’ll be able to hear me better. I heard/read a lot of people complaining that they wanted to go to this show, but it was sold out. Ummm, here’s an idea: Buy your ticket early. The most obvious benefit is that you’ll be able to see the show (which was amazing). In addition, though, selling a bunch of tickets in advance gives the venue and/or promoter the confidence (and funds) to book similar shows or take a chance on bigger and possibly better shows. Or, book interesting opening acts, or put money into the production, or whatever. It’s pretty much all to the benefit of the Savannah music scene. I’ve been to a lot of packed shows lately, and I love it. I love the energy, I love the people watching, I love everything about it. The bands REALLY love it, and it usually shows in their performance and are much more likely to come back. Sold out shows are great, but sold out in advance? Everyone (who bought a ticket) wins.

    Tom, outstanding photos bro! And to your point Absofuckinglutely, too long have I personally worked, participated, attended shows that should have been packed and or sold out only to have some incredible artists play to an empty room and then suddenly our little microcosm goes blank for awhile cause no one wants to play to an and or pay for an empty room. It’s a wonderful thing out shows are selling out and yes I know I missed this one but I am certain even better is coming down the pipe cause peeps are supporting live music finally.
