Well, dang

A lot of shows sell out. We'll occasionally try to alert you to certain events that don't have tickets for sale anymore, which would allow you to ask friends — bother? — to take you. Or, evaluate the secondary market.

Quarterfash — Marv and Rindy Ross and the band — is putting on its final show, March 23 at Alberta Rose Theatre. But, it's sold out.
