They won't give us our seats
When the circus comes to Austin, we like to sit where we're at a level with the aerial performers and can also see the band. That means an upper level. This year, the box office says that no seats will be sold there until the bottom levels are filled. The bottom levels are never filled for the performance that we like. This is a David Larible year, so it's a good guess that it's a circus requirement, so as to provide as many audience participants as handily as possible for his performances. So we haven't decided whether we'll attend or not.
