Last night, I went with lizardprincess and tesseract26 to the Red Eyed Fly about 9PM to go to what I thought would be a nice, well-attended rock show. It was, in fact, a very crowded rock show, where we weren't even able to get into the club to pay for entry until 15 minutes after Tegan and Sara started. They filled the main room to capacity, then let in people who arrived after 9PM who had prepaid tickets, then let in some of the people in the buy-at-door line. We were near the front of that line, but when we saw how crowded the main room was, and considering that I was already feeling a bit ill, we bailed. The rest of the evening was a spent in productive conversation about our "left-wing conspiracy" group over drinks and a veggie plate at Austin Java Company. I'm a little disappointed that I didn't get to see the band, but the evening was still fun.
