I still ended up seeing you in Chicago by myself (coming from Toronto) even when my friend bailed. I'd do it again in a second too. Alot of my friends thought I was nuts.

+40 points at LEAST.

i've been to shows alone before...prior to the show you definitely feel awkward and lonely, but once the show starts you aren't held down by the thought of yours friends thinking you're a weirdo.

Ha. The shows I've went to in providence are like part of the select few of shows that I HAVEN'T gone by myself.

I once drove 3 hours-ish to go to a show in Arkansas, even after my friend who was supposed to go with me, who lived like within five minutes walking distance of the venue, bailed on me to hang out with his girlfriend, who he later dumped anyways.

I always brought money to spend at the merch tables, and that made the coming from the shows that I went solo better, because I could just throw my headphones on and listen to the music, and ride the streetcar back home(when I was in NOLA).


When you do go without friends, there's a lot less distractions. That's a definite perk if you are into whoever you are seeing.

going to shows alone should be no big deal.
i guess to each his own, but i usually get stuck on the performance and don't pay attantion to much else.
I AM NOT A GOOD DATE TO TAKE TO SHOWS, LADIES.
performing in a show with no friend support in the audience...
now that's another story.
that's a little nerve racking when you aren't "known" and people aren't already excited to see you.

*and i drove two hours to see sage, knowing damn well that i was only gonna catch the last fifteen minutes of his set,
and i went anyways because i said i was and i wanted to say hi.
sure i wasn't alone...still though.

I flew to Philly by myself to see the last show of the AHD tour after I missed it in SF. There's a little more to the story, but the show was the primary reason I was there.

That was kind of a lonely trip....

Just a side note. I would love to see Sage drunk or high. I mean come on wouldn't you? Imagine the possibilities, that mind of his, that insight that talent for word play....

I go solo or with friends or make friends there. Can't miss a show that I want to see.

i went to the healthy distrust show alone because my friend bailed on me.

But i think i may have lost my points for not going to the final HTDD show in Portland due to inclement weather. That weather being insane thunderstorms and monsoon-like rain. I did try, but after dodging trees and downed power lines in the road while being able to see 2 feet in front of my car, i reluctantly decided it may not be worth it, since i saw the first HTDD show in Boston anyway. Of course i bought the tickets beforehand. Damn you mother nature!

Hey, I went by myself to the 1st night in Boston of the HTDD tour. I was visiting family on the South Shore and drove up and got a room solo in Cambridge. I got drunk alone watching the Red Sox/Yankees game at some bar in Central Square before the show. I drank even more at the Middle East, subsequently vomiting all over that hotel room later. I still love you Hampton Inn, I'm sorry.

I'm on the other side of that, I kinda dig playing for a room of strangers.

As a matter of fact I'd probably cut my dick off to do it every day.

I've been to plenty of shows solo. It's better sometimes. I remember once we had a thread debating this very thing.

I just got invited to this evening with Pharoahe Monch thing at a local record store. Couldn't find anyone to go with. Went alone. Had the best time I've had since I moved to Los Angeles. I'd post pics but i suck at the internetz.
