So if You’re Lonely, You Know I’m Here Waiting For You

Filed under: — Kate @ 11:44 am EST

Scored Franz Ferdinand tickets this morning. Third row, right center. I am so psyched.

And all I have to say, is fuck Ticketbastard. And I hate myself for being too weak to resist them.

    Here’s to hoping they have more than 2 good songs. I admit that I do like what I’ve heard from them though.

  2. Holz Says:

    They do Stan, the album is actually surprisingly good, wasn’t expecting much, and was pleasantly surprised

    SO jealous! Still waiting to hear who our opener is for the U2 show. Am crossing fingers that by some chance, it is the Killers. My new obsession The Bravery would work too.

  4. Stan Says:

    Opening for U2? Ugh, probably Cold Play. ;)

  5. Kate Says:

    The new Franz Ferdinand album is definitely good. This concert is making up for the one I missed last year, and I’m psyched that it’s at the Tower Theater instead of the Electric Factory. Only, at the Electric factory, you can escape from the teenagers by hanging at the bar. There will be no such solace at the Tower. Oh well.

    Melissa, I hope you get the Killers. U2 + Killers + Vegas = freaking awesome. I only know who my opener for the NYC show—Keane. They still haven’t announced the opener for my Philly show, so I’m a bit anxious about that.

    And ha ha, Stan. Too bad you have no idea how awesome that would actually be. I’ve been to seven U2 concerts, and I’ve only been happy with the opening act twice.

    We were nervous about getting Kanye West but it looks like he’s at the end of this leg. Kings of Leon were ok and we bought the CD afterwards but not super inspiring.

    Keane would be cool too. But the Killers? I’d just die and go to heaven right there. Well, maybe after the show. = )

    No kidding! And that’s not even accounting for the overall system shock from staring right at Brandon and then Bono all in the same night. ;-D

  8. Melissa Says:

    Seriously, what is it about Bono? The man is like two inches shorter than I am, but he’s hot! And I can’t totally figure out why.
    Brandon is adorable but like my little bro’s friends are adorable…too young to take seriously.
    Bono on the other hand? Married what? lol

    For me it’s the voice. I was in total love (at age 11) before I ever knew what he looked like. And then you just have to ignore the 80s (with the exception of WOWY in R&H).

    Brandon, he wasn’t so hot until he cut his hair and started wearing eyeliner. Now, I could just eat him alive.

    The hair never bothered me. Not sure I ever noticed that much of it. = )
    I think it was the intensity in his eyes/voice when I’d see him on TV or in videos (having only ever seen him live this last March). That and the fact that there isn’t any Bono tabloid talk, happily married with wife and kids. I’m old but his monogamy is sexy. Bono is the only guy I’ve ever had the hots for that was shorter than I am…normally I have a thing about that, he is the exception.

    Brandon is darn good looking but I feel like I’d be corrupting him. Which given that he grew up in Vegas, probably isn’t too likely. = )

    *sees Bono*

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    *faints*

    Heh heh. Bono. Heh heh.

    Hey, I never fainted. Though I was rendered unable to speak coherently for several hours that time I touched him.
