The Massive Attack tour has been rescheduled and my tickets from the cancelled show in LA are supposedly still valid. I don't know how to find out if my ticket is valid for any of the three dates, or just for one of them, and the venue won't respond to me. Does anyone know who would actually be the authority on something like this? Obviously I can't contact the band. I'm having nightmares about booking a flight and a place to stay and then finding out my ticket is only good for the show on the day I leave or something.

edit: they responded like 5 minutes after I wrote this.
So are you still good to go or can you get reimbursed?
I'm good to go, I was just trying to figure out plane tickets and lodging. My only problem now is finding somebody to go with.
Go with your singer! You can bond and such.
Sir, you have crossed a line!

I regret to inform,,, that I am at a Blue Grass festival, camping and all. Should be sick. As I said on Twitter, going from hardcore to bluegrass makes a lot of sense, since the good stuff in both gets played fast as fuck.

I am proud to inform that hammers are representing at the fest:

My local park had a free 80s double header yesterday with Midge Ure and Nick Heyward from Haircut 100. I was surprised at how good Nick was, he looked and sounded nearly the same as 30 odd years ago. I thought Midge was poor in comparison, his voice was struggling to hit the high notes and he was employing this ridiculous microphone technique where he pulls his voice right away from the mic on the high notes. His voice was just disappearing and it sounded shit.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Shame about Midge. Nick is underrated the stuff with Haircut 100 was some good pop but a lot of his solo stuff is excellent.

Yeah, some of his solo stuff is really good. He did an absolutely killer extended version of Favourite Shirts, liveliest I saw the crowd all day.

This is a fine technique if the sound guy hasn't employed a compressor, which it sounds like he had.

Oh yeah, you need to pull back for higher notes but this was ridiculous. He was moving about 3 feet away.

Hello,

How many feet did you move away?

I just bought tix for Mott the Hoople at the Orpheum in LA.

Niiice. I missed them here last spring, but vids I've seen sound great. Ian's excellent Rant Band is the core group with Morgan Fisher and Ariel Bender sounding great too (and Bender acting/looking as crazy as '74). Hunter just turned 80 last month and still sings and rocks like a mofo. Should be a gas.
