5 minutes: People line up outside
Tickets were on sale. The concert was starting in a few hours.
We were going to do this the old fashioned way. The band said they wanted to return to some of their more humble roots, something they missed since becoming internationally famous.
We had to employ some subterfuge though. We had to advertise something else - something that wouldn't overwhelm the venue with too many fans for us to handle. It would have to attract the indie crowd - the same crowd that gave the band the support they needed to get off the ground.
In some ways, this was going to be a nostalgia tour, but I was afraid the same indie crowd that once supported them, would now look down on them with disdain, for having sold out to The Man that they had once railed against.
