I just picked up tickets for Anna and I to see Iron & Wine and Calexico tomorrow night at the new House of Blues in downtown San Diego. Should be a good show, I’m a big fan of Calexico. I expect a lot of indie-folk-desert-bluesy action. The UT has a good write-up on the Iron & Wine-Calexico collaboration.
Make sure you buy tickets at the HoB box office, just outside. Tickets there cost $22 after taxes, tickets through TicketMaster start at $28, before taxes – a nice $7.95 ‘Convenience Charge’ per ticket. They also charge you $2.50 to ‘let you’ print your own ticket. What a bunch of dicks.
