Okay, so I got my refund for the two July tickets (Still waiting on the refunds on the two double weekend passes)...and the drama continues.
Am I being stingy or is it the fact that they're not refunding the 18.50 they charged for UPS shipping the biggest fucking pile of bullshit ever? Especially considering they never gave us the option for free shipping. This essentially means I paid 18.50 for getting hyped about a concert that never happened.
I didn't see this thread until the official announcement came through. All of the "Nah Sasquatch wouldn't do that" and "No way they would cancel it" at the beginning when it was still a rumor adds an additional layer of fucked-up-ness.
To contribute to the discussion regarding The National, I had a same issue with getting into them as well. Even Boxer was difficult for me to listen more than once. High Violet is the album that clicked with me...Especially the song Sorrow. Have you listened to some of their older songs? I have no idea if they still play them but Slipping Husband and Available on Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers made me go "Holy shit this guy can scream".
