Whoohooo yo la tengo !!!!!!!!
I don’t understand why pavement is playing this show, but nothing in the U.S. The fans are here. They are the ones who supported the band through thick and thin. By all means, play Barcelona. But play here as well.
10-% come to the USA and PLS PLAY TJE EAST COAST or SOMEQHERE REASONABLE ACCESSABLE THATS somewhere in the middle
A good time of year
Certainly BIG BUSINESS PROMOTERS WOULD PAY UP TO BOOK HELL MAKE IT A BENEFIT FOR ANOTHER COUNTRY Or PEOPLE HERE NAGH MAKE IT HAPPEN AND THEY WOULD MAKE A KILLING
Even if they stay EAST COAST/or CENTRAL AT LEAST 5 DAYS WITH BANDS RPTATING AND MAYBE 1 MONTH OF WKNDS
$100-200 tix to start for 2 day passes and you will sell it to a stadium full of people
WEST COAST, MIDDLE STATES
