Well, dang

A lot of shows sell out. We'll occasionally try to alert you to certain events that don't have tickets for sale anymore, which would allow you to ask — bother? — friends to take you. Or, evaluate the secondary market.

It's a big night at Oregon Zoo, Tuesday, Aug. 6, with The B-52s making another Portland appearance, this time on their 40th anniversary tour, along with Berlin. But, it's sold out.
