I'm not a big fan of high rates either. The more expensive it is, the larger the venue and the less intimate the performance. I see plenty of great shows for $25 or less at small venues.

Most I ever paid was $60 to see Tool maybe around 2000. Too bad it was outdoors and most of the sound I heard was coming from the speakers on the hill, versus ones on the stage. Just about the least intimate concert experience ever. I've seen other shows at that venue, but they weren't bands I really cared about so it wasn't a big deal...it actually made it feel more like hanging out with friends and shooting the shit in the park.

I'd love to see your signature/links too, but the huge and obnoxious ones have caused me to block all signatures.
