Ok! So London has a wedding to attend on Sept. 15th, so logically - unless we can stretch time a bit - the only HM reunion show we can attend is the one in Milwaukee on the 13th. This will do just fine. I am going to keep a log of plane ticket prices and show info here so all my thoughts are on one page. I'm all over the place with excitement right now; I've gotta get myself together. And I think I can pull this financially too, which is not only a surprise but a relief.
VENUE: Cactus Club
ADDRESS: 2496 S Wentworth Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53207
COST: 10 bucks (I thought both of them were free? Bob, are you lying to me?!)
LINEUP: The Response, New Ruins (ex Braid/Secretary) and HEY MERCEDES!!!!
GOAL: Leave 9/12 after I get out of class (8:40 PM) - so let's say around 11/1130 PM. Get into Milwaukee super early on the 13th, head straight to around the venue and hang out all day. Show ends around 12 or 1 AM, maybe find a place to stay, and crash for a little while. Leave midday and be back to Bmore the night of the 14th.
STUDENTUNIVERSE: cheapest 227 - times are kind of icky for us though.
EXPEDIA: cheapest 132 - lots of times - and nonstop flights
PRICELINE: cheapest 127 - but times kind of suck - nonstop flights and layovers
ORBITZ: 107/120/133 - lots of layovers
CHEAPOAIR: 90 bucks - ill keep checking this site.
TRAVELZOO: is awesome. It has a bunch of sites and their prices.
This is exciting! I've never booked a flight by myself. Growin' up fast, like a sprout.
