Interesting thoughts… I feel like this was a really good idea from the artist’s/venue’s perspective. But also, even if it was intended as a manipulative maneuver to make themselves look good and cool, I still feel like the people attending the concert probably enjoyed it, too. After all, they got to be a part of something “special” – and free, too!

I remember waiting in a similar line for a $10 concert, so for free I can certainly imagine waiting that long. Comes with the territory, I suppose.

Now I gotta check out Le Poisson Rouge! I love cabaret style, and if they’re somehow related to Regina Spektor, all the better!
