Time spent at the concert: 1 hour, 10 minutes.

Time spent in the car getting to and from the concert: 6 hours, 50 minutes.

Cost:

  • 2 tickets – $66.50 each.
  • 1 parking ticket for the only available (metered) space in my neighborhood when I got home at 1:30 am – $30.
  • 1 ruined pair of shoes.
  • 1 even more ruined pair of socks.
  • Seeing Liars’ set.
  • Any chance that I’ll ever go to Nissan Pavilion again.
  • The credibility of Radiohead‘s self-righteous prattling about the benefits of getting to the show via carpooling and/or public transit.

And apparently, I was one of the lucky ones.
