My Showbox rant

Saturday night I shelled out the dollars and headed over to the Showbox to see Keller Williams and immerse myself in the jam culture. (Thumbs up to the Green Room and the superb happy hour specials) The lines were long and confusing. Noone was sure if you had to stand in the line if you had a ticket. The guy at the front says yes, everyone else thought no. Later we’re yelled at for standing in line with tickets…A little hippie flavor walked up and down the streets selling as she called them ‘mushroom chocolates, and ghanga cookies…all organic (I’m sure they are dear, I’m sure they are…)’ I passed on the cookies and ventured in to do a little dancing to ‘Freeker by the Speaker’. Well, the Showbox is layed out interestingly with the bars on raised platforms in the back and an open floor. This would not have been a problem had it not been for the fact that it was an all ages show and to get a beer, you had to show id and go up into the bar area. Normally this wouldn’t be so bad, but it was soooo crowded and they kept yelling at us to get out of the way, that it was almost as if we were being punished for being 21+. (As if paying 5 dollars for a beer isn’t punishment enough) All’s well that ends well though (thank you sir in front of me smokin’ the ‘cigarette’ for my contact high *chuckles*).

As a side note, McCormick & Schmick’s (1108 First Ave, at Spring) has the cheapest happy hour appetizers in the world I think. 2 dollars for a cheeseburger and fries. Amazing. Too bad the place stunk of cigars.
