I’m a big, big fan of Cowboy Junkies. Have been for years-and-years. Now…well, I’m definitely still a fan but have to admit my admiration has been lessened a bit (and it’s not the band’s fault).
See Cowboy Junkies are coming in concert to Orlando. I really would like to go but their tickets are upwards of $40 ($36.50 to be exact), and while I’m all about the concerts, times are tough right now and I think that’s a bit much for just “watching a band.” Particularly one that’s been around so long and somewhat quiet in the US market.
So upon the recommendation of another Central Florida blogger and Twitter Tweep I decided to contact the band’s press person, and see if I could leverage “Pulse of Central Florida” as a means to get two (2) tickets. I offered-up pre-promotion, coverage, and post-promotion of the concert to the Central Florida market.
Apparently this wasn’t the best idea. Here’s the response I got from the press person:
…and there you have it. So it looks like I won’t be seeing Cowboy Junkies this time ’round. But if you’re interested you can catch them at The Plaza Theatre on Wednesday, February 11th. You can also get more information about the band by visiting their website
