I’m not familiar with Ted Leo’s music, so I make no judgment on that. I have recently seen James Mc
Murtry and Bob Schneider (in separate shows) at Club Congress for slightly lower ticket prices, and they are both well established, award winning singer-songwriters. Sunday night’s a tough night to draw a big crowd in Tucson. For example McMurtry’s audience was easily three times larger this year, when he played on a Tuesday night, than it was last yeat when it played on a Sunday night. Both shows were 7 PM shows, so the start time was not a factor. I also found, when Over the Rhine was here—I recently begged them to come back on Twitter—that buying advance tickets Online saves you nothing, as the service fee brings it up to the same price. I would only consider that option if I thought a show was likely to sellout. For instance, I bought balcony tickets for the Avett Brothers’ April 23 show at the Rialto back in in January. I haven’t looked, but I suspect the balcony is sold out by now. With all the small added fees, those seats cost about $41 each. The next night in Mesa, the lowest priced ticket to the Avett Brothers is $108.00 plus fees. We are truly lucky—and damned smart—to live here, instead of LA East, with no beach, up the road…
