Houston Rain Trumps Punk Rock. Dang. [7/16/2007 10:24:00 AM]:
This is probably going to be old news to the poor souls who braved the sporadic downpour to drive from God-knows-where (Alvin/Spring/Tomball/etc.) down to Reliant Park
yesteday for the Houston stop of the Warped Tour
, but the weather forced the Tour crew to shut down this past weekend & reschedule for, yes, today
, Monday, July 16th
Go here for details straight from the horse's mouth, but the gist is that all tickets for the H-town show will be honored and anybody with a Houston ticket and valid ID from TX, OK, or LA now has the magical ability to go to any other Warped Tour show for free. No, I have no idea if that means you can go to more than one (i.e., see it today and then fly/drive elsewhere and see it again); if so, that'd be pretty damn cool. (Note that I'm also not sure I'd spend 9+ hours in a car to another state to test that theory, mind you.)
Anyway, on the good side, A) the show is now being moved inside Reliant Arena, which, as longtime readers of this e-zine will know, is a really freakin' good thing, and B) it seems fairly likely that a lot fewer people will be there today. So, if you're a ticketholder and you'd rather skip the usual crush of kids and/or imminent sunstroke/brain damage from the Houston heat, you might think about playing hooky from work and heading on down. Hell, you've already paid for it, right?
