CoF XX! We made it! 20 full years of this nonsense.
Night 1 of the 2 night CoF 20th Anniversary Party! Really want to thank The Cure and The Twilight Sad for lowering their normal rates, so that I could book them for the party. Very kind of you. :) Here's hoping we get more of a Funeral Party than a dance party. :)
If you have GA floor tickets you will enter at Gate 5 on Congress, if you have reserved tickets you enter at Gate 3 on Racine & Harrison.
If you're still looking for tickets, I will be posting any last minute offers on Twitter (I'm @CraigatCoF) and here (until I head down to the show).
