I have $40 to my name to last me until Thursday.
Lawn seats are $20 bucks.
Parking will be at least $5.
A bottle of water will be $5
That leaves me with $10 bucks to last me 4 days.
I am under a half a tank.
I have never seen the allmans.
I love southern rock.
I dig MOE.
I can't afford to do this.
Question is..

Do I go anyway?

Honestly if you think you can get by on $10 for those 4 days then, by all means, do it. Don't make so that you can't get by or anything, but if you think you can do it, then you should. I just went to my first ABB show last night, and it was amazing. You owe it to yourself to see these guys play live.

Missing these guys and the way they are playing now would be a mistake.

You'll get by, just do it.

If you really think you can make it on the $10 then go. But if not, it's not the end of the world. Chances are you'll have another chance next year,

P.S. skip the $5 water

Go and see if someone miracles you a ticket before buying one. It happens. :-) Good luck.

I missed Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Charles Mingus, and many others because I thought I could see them "next time". I'd go if I were you.

I passed up Rory Gallagher, SRV, Son Seals, Junior Wells, and Son Thomas thinking that they would pass my way again.

I did not make that mistake with Frank Edwards, Lynyrd Skynrd (pre 1977), or Honeyboy Edwards.

IF you can go see the Brothers; do so.

If it is your last $40.00 then spend wisely. Take a resume and make conections while enjoying the show or use that money to place an Ad in the paper..

Just my .02, which is losing ground here daily...Good luck.

$10.00 will buy a year's supply of Ramen Noodles, maybe even a few cans of store-brand soup or tuna. HELL YES! Go to that friggin' show! You can always eat, but an ABB show is a precious thing!

I passed up tonight for time with my family, and lack of funds, but I have seen 15 or so shows in the last 12 years.

If something does happen and this is the last ABB show ever, I'll kick myself. But if I were a betting man I see 06 in the ABB future

It's only money. Easy come, easy go. The Brothers are in top form right now. This is the stuff memories are made of. You won't remember being broke a few years from now, but you'll remember the show!!

Hitching a ride to the show and leaving your car halfway there on the freeway: $4 gas
Drinking from the facuet in the men's room: gross but doable
Finding a ticket in the parking lot: <$20
A great story to go along with your first Brothers show: Priceless!

When I got divorced in 2000 I had $50 in my bank account when one of my buddies stopped by wanting me to go to the Roger Waters concert. Tix were $35 without tax. I took $45 out and have never regreted it.

Well, CarolinaSky, I sure hope you went. Henry and I have always agreed that the only shows we've ever regreted were the ones we missed. Believe me, we've got regrets this morning...
