Way Out West

There’s a dark horse candidate for my oft-discussed September holiday… Bumbershoot in Seattle, over the Labour Day weekend. REM, Wilco and The Shins to name a few, and only $55 for four days. Compounded with the big steaming heaps of uncertainty surrounding ATP NYC, maybe a contingency plan is in order. And I know some people out in Vancouver. Well, one. I think, if he’s still there.

UPDATE: ATP NYC is officially postponed till early ’04. So I am soliciting suggestions on what to do with my damned vacation time.

    Because ATP LA has been postponed to Sept,

    ATP NYC is moving to early 2004.

    We have had problems over the past six months trying to find a suitable venue and the search has been compared to George W Bush’s quest for Weapons of Mass destruction in Iraq.

    However, we have made significant progress over the past two weeks and will be announcing details very soon so check the site for more details…"

    Great. great great great.

    plane tickets to vancouver that time of year are around $600.

    so my options seem to be:

    1) Bumbershoot in Seattle.

    2) Go to NYC anyway

    3) take the rest of my vacation days for sulking.

    Oh, I’d pick Bumbershoot. While I haven’t been here in Seattle long enough to have gone to one before, my friends here assure me it’s quite the event. And what a lineup!

    Besides, New York City at the end of August is usually hot and sticky. Bleh.

    Hot and sticky. hadn’t thought of that… the problem with Seattle is that airplane tickets are muy muy expensive, and all the bands at Bumbershoot I’d want to see will be rolling into town shortly anyway. The pragmatist in me is a killjoy.

    Who am I kidding? I am never leaving Toronto. Not ever ever ever. That is so sad.
