The Gossip are in town tomorrow night (October 13), and tickets are an unbelievable $20! I have no idea if any are actually still available, as the Admission.com website doesn’t seem to want to sell me any (stupid technology), but that doesn’t mean you can’t snag a few at the door (also for only $20).
Also important to note: The show has apparently been rescheduled from its original venue, Sala Rossa, and is now happening at Le National (1220 St-Catherine East) instead, to accommodate the overwhelming demand.
Um, duh! The Gossip are FRIGGIN’ HUGE, yo. Who the hell booked ’em at teeny Sala Rossa to begin with, anyway?
At any rate, my birthday’s on Wednesday and I figure it’s as good a time as any to embrace my inner party animal, get out there and dance. Oh, and force my entourage to buy me early-birthday drinks, of course.
In honour of Beth Ditto’s amazing voice and fuck-you attitude, I offer you this tabloid-esque haiku:
The Gossip in town:
dimestore diamond in the rough
proclaims “Kiss my ass!”
