So as soon as I heard that Welcome to Night Vale was going to be performing in Milwaukee this July, I jumped on the computer to buy myself tickets because even though I actually live in Madison, I knew that this would probably the only chance I’ll have to see them anytime soon.
It’s only an hour-long commute from Madison to Milwaukee, so you’d think that it’d be fairly easy for me to get there and back — except I don’t have a car. Lucky for me, I found out that the Greyhound Bus can get me from one city to the other in almost no-time, so getting there won’t be a problem. What is a problem is figuring out how to get back to Madison.
The Greyhound buses all stop running after 6-7PM, and many of the inter-state commuting options either are too far for me to get to or aren’t offering their services after a certain time (for example, if I were to leave the theater and take a taxi to the nearest BadgerBus station, it would take 47 minutes, minimum.). I’ve looked at all possible options, including the ones listed here, and sadly none of them are applicable to my situation.
If worse comes to worst, I could check into a cheap hotel until morning, but I would really prefer not to spend the night there because I have work and school the next morning. So basically, if I can’t figure out a way to get back after the show is over I might have to cancel my plans.
If there is anyone else in Madison who’s planning on going to WTNV’s July show in Milwaukee, I would greatly appreciate it if you would consider giving me a ride back into Madison after the show ends. I live on the West side, if that helps at all, and I would definitely be willing to reimburse you for gas money.
Alternatively, if there is anyone in Madison who would like to go to WTNV’s July show in Milwaukee but doesn’t want to spend money on tickets/doesn’t want to go alone/insert-another-reason-here, I am offering to buy you a ticket to the show in exchange for a ride back into Madison once it ends. I can’t promise that our seats will be next to each other because of the large time-gap between each purchase, but we can definitely discuss it afterwards.
- Please note that I am not asking you to drive me allllllll the way home. I just need to get into Madison; After that, I can use the local taxi service (or a bus if it’s early enough) to get me where I need to be.
- I hate to have to specify this, because I’m sure that it’s not even a topic of concern, but this ad is purely a platonic one. I’m not asking for a date, and I’m not offering anything other than gratitude and monetary reimbursement in exchange for driving me home.
- If you are interested and willing to help me, let me know and we can hammer out the details through email or tumblr message. Tumblr is kind of finicky with it’s messaging system, so if you aren’t sure if I’ve seen something, feel free to reblog this post with a little comment.
If would mean so much to me if I could get as many people to reblog this as possible. To my followers out there, I’m sorry, but please please reblog this from me. The show is on the 14th, so time is ticking. Even if you’re not going to the show, or you can’t spare any extra room, reblogging this would be such a big help. I just need as many people as possible to see it.
Okay, that’s all. As Cecil says, “I am not a good salesman.”
