3 Reasons I May Skip Dead Confederate

I'm not happy about the prospect of missing Dead Confederate at DC9 tonight. They're one of my favorite young bands going, and have impressed the hell out of me both times I've seen them.

However, there are three compelling reasons which may end up convincing me to skip the show.

Reason #1: Game 3 starts at 8pm.

Edited to add: Crap. 3-2, Penguins. Sloppy, half-hearted play until they were already down 3-1.

Reason #2: Game 5 starts at 8:30pm.

Edited to add: Crap. 106-102, Celtics. Similar story - awful performance until great (near) comeback at end.

Reason #3: Tonight's show, with 3 bands, starts at 10pm, meaning that the only band I care to see, Dead Confederate, won't be on until at least midnight. I stay up pretty late, and in New York, this would be completely fine. But considering that the DC subway system stops running at midnight, this kinda limits your options. You can drive (have fun parking), or you can take a cab (have an even better time trying to catch a cab at 1am on U Street). Have I mentioned that I don't like DC?

Edited to add: Yep, skipped it.

So, yeah, I'm probably out for this show.
