Anyone else going to the Radiohead show in New Orleans on Monday? I'm a huge fan who's never seen them live, so I'm taking the day off to ride the Crescent train down and spend most of the day waiting in line like a nut for a decent spot. If anybody else has general admission/floor tickets, maybe we can do a mini meet-up and save each other's places in line for food/bathroom breaks/chat/phalanxing our way to center rail?
I am looking for one or more people with whom to attend the Hozier concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion on June 20th. Tickets go on sale on Friday and, judging by past experience, will be snapped up immediately. [more inside]

As discussed over in this thread, the next Highland Park Jazz Series concert with meet-up interest is on August 24th and will feature The Horn Guys. The concerts in this series are free, and take place every Sunday in August from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
UPDATE: Called, for both August 3rd and August 24th. Yesterday was St. Swithin's Day, and since it didn't rain I am cautiously optimistic: is there any interest in catching one of the Highland Park "Reservoir of Jazz" performances? They're free, and take place every Sunday in August from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. [more inside]
