still missing Adrian Belew

When I was 16 or 17, I saw that Adrian Belew was playing in my town. I was (and still am) a fan of the solo records he had out at the time, and wanted to go. It would have been the first concert I picked & went to.

Only the club as 21 and over. Their policy (and state law) was that under-21s could go if with a parent. My parents probably would have taken me, but I didn't even ask.

He's stayed musically active & more or less popular the twenty years since then, and i still haven't seen him, either solo or with a band. I was excited to see that my radio station has some tickets to give for a show here tonight, plus a couple free ones for staff members! I am totally there- except I'm not, because I already had plans with my girlfriend- to see a symphony that neither of us are particularly excited about. We probably could have changed our tickets, or just not used them-

in retrospect, seeing an Adrian Belew concert may just be what I'm meant not to do, a unifying thread/running joke in life...

ps. this must be all over LJ, but: http://www.xkcd.com/c77.html
