Jay Farrar / Ben Gibbard in Portland, Jan 23 Ticket (Kinda) Giveaway

It turns out that I will be unable to make the trip to Portland next weekend for the Jay Farrar & Ben Gibbard show.

If you are in the Portland area, or if you're not, and would just love to attend this show, here's my little offer: The total charge for the ticket was $35.70. The ticket is yours, as long as you're willing to make a donation of at least $30 to Oxfam for its relief efforts in Haiti. The cynic may say, "But how is that really a deal? I'm only saving about $5?" Well, I would say: In addition to enjoying two mid-tempo rockers, you will feel good about donating to a relief effort that needs all the help it can get.

Lastly, we will go simply on trust. I won't ask for proof that you sent cash to Oxfam. I will just ask that, well, you send the damn money.

If you're interested, please e-mail me at ccsbandwagon at gmail dot com. First person to respond gets the ticket.

Wow, huge loss on your part. You can make this up to yourself by going to the A.A. Bondy show at Cafe Du Nord on Wednesday. Do not miss that show.

I've only heard a bit of AA Bondy and it didn't grab me at first. Doubtful I'll hit the show, but thanks for the tip.

Remember when you were "meh" about the Farrar/Gibbard, and you didn't go to the show while they were in SF? Then later you realized they were wrong? It's like that.

I'll refund your money if you go and you don't come back raving.

We gotta get you out of the house, Chris. I know you are trying to avoid bars and all, but fucks sake! It's Gibbard/Farrar in Portland. Has the makings of epic awesomeness!
