Ticket archives

I’m cleaning out junk and came across a bundle of ticket receipts. I doubt this is comprehensive–there’s almost certainly some missing ones from the 1993-5 years–and I’m taking out all Opera, Classical, Broadway musicals, etc. But as one person’s life in pop music, it’s pretty revealing.

    FWIW, The Tabernacle is in Atlanta.

    That’s right. What a beautiful space that is.

    The carrier dome is in Syracuse, NY. (The young musician in me recognized that as a Northeast high school marching band competition destination…)

    [one letter is missin* from my keyboard] The concert ticket list provides an interestin* insi*ht into your musical taste. It’s a *reat feelin* comin* across all these old thin*s and seein* them in a row isn’t it? It’s a taste palet on paper. I did the same thin* a couple of years a*o with all postcards ever received from friends. And that’s a social network on paper – a ‘facebox’.

    It is and it isn’t indicative of my musical taste. A great majority of these concerts took place during periods when I had little access to other sorts of music (not too many folks gigged in upstate NY when I was living there, 1992-1996), AND my musical tastes have changed and broadened since then. For example, I probably haven’t listened to a Phish song since 1997. I listen to a lot of music by dead folks whom I couldn’t see in concert, and a lot of pop music where I can’t afford the ticket or can’t be bothered with the crowds. So, it says something about the practical realities of enacting my tastes, but doesn’t capture my tastes particularly well, despite what I wrote above.
