I have received the following email from R5 productions:

Subject: The Polyphonic Spree -- 3rd Time Is The Charm

Hello -
We normally do not send out a single e-mail to announce just ONE show, but we feel this time is an exception. Escpecially consdering the circumstances behind it :

R5 Productions Presents An Evening With ......

A Special Limitead Seated Show Inside The First Unitarian Church's Sanctuary

* Tickets to the previously scheduled Polyphonic Spree Shows will be honored. You however will need to trade them in for new tickets at Spaceboy Music. If you previously purchased will call/internet tickets, your card was automatically refunded and you will need to purchase NEW tickets.

For those who are unfamiliar with The Polyphonic Spree they are a 26 (yes twenty six) member band from Texas. When the group takes to the stage for a live performance, its two dozen members are costumed in flowing robes of snowy white, an appropriate backdrop for their happy and uplifting musical message. The group boasts a ten-member choir, a pair of keyboardists, as well as a percussionist, bassist, guitarist, flautist, trumpeter, trombonist, violist, a French horn player, a theremin player, and an electronic effects wizard. We encourage you to check them out :

Thanks !

OKAY! Unfortunately, I purchased my tickets via internet way the hell back in September, so I am going to have to purchase these babies all over again. RESPOND IMMEDIATELY. As long as I don't forget, I will be ordering these FIRST THING Thursday morning. NOTHING WILL STAND IN MY WAY.

I'll also be sending out an email to everyone who had originally planned on going to the September show.

I'm trying not to get too excited. OH MAN AND I JUST REALIZED WHY I MUST NOT BE TOO EXCITED.

I'm going to be in Ireland.

But I'm coming home that Sunday! I think during the day! So I'm pretty sure I can make the show Sunday night!

Know that if I were home that weekend, I would be seeing them twice. Without a doubt.

So you guys, let's go Sunday! Okay? Please? I know you have work the next day but I want you all to be there with me! I will understand if that is not doable. (I won't buy your tickets for you, however).

Okay! So if you are going to come with me to that Sunday show (I'LL BE THE ONE IN THE ROBE), respond to this post. Or send me an email. Geniusscientist at gmail.

I AM TRYING NOT TO GET TOO EXCITED, IT IS STILL VERY POSSIBLE THAT SOMETHING WILL SCREW THIS UP ONCE AGAIN. Oh please let me be home by then. Oh please let me be home by then. Oh please let me be home by then. Oh please let me be home by then.
