I’ve got in my possession (by some miracle as they sold out in seconds and now scalpers are charging up to $4,400 for them) tickets to An Evening with Jack’s Mannequin: The Last Show. At the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on 11/11/12. Don’t know how I’m getting there yet or where I’m sleeping but I’m going, even if I live on a jar of Nutella and a gallon of water and sleep in a tent in the Hollywood Hills (and possibly get eaten by coyotes). This is a once in a lifetime show. I will live the rest of my life saying I saw Andrew McMahon play his FINAL show as Jack’s Mannequin. And I ventured all the way to the Pacific coast to do it. And risked being a coyote snack. One time. One chance. One life. I’m going to die with a book of dreams realized. A life unlived is a life wasted.
I’m not afraid of coyotes.
