I already ranted about those $92.50 tickets for AC/DC nosebleed seats. If you’re that much of a fan, the show is on November 17th (a Monday) at the Wachovia Center (for this one show, the venue should go back to its old name, the F.U. Center), and tickets go on sale this Saturday at 10 a.m.

But to illustrate just how ridiculous that is, consider this: the legendary Neil Young is bringing his ornery self to the ill-fated Spectrum along with not just Wilco but also Everest on December 12th (a Friday). Tickets are $48, $78, $97, and $250, but if you can get yourself down to the Spectrum box office on Friday morning at 10 a.m., when tickets go on sale, you might be able to get your hands on some of the limited number of $19.67 tickets (the price in honor of the Spectrum’s opening year) they are releasing.

Meanwhile, the beloved Reverend Horton Heat joins forces with Nashville Pussy at the TLA on November 8th. On sale this Friday at noon at $25.
