My knees just got a little weak. The Mars Volta will be in Dallas April 8. I will be there. Sure, I don't have tickets. Tickets don't go on sale until Saturday, March 1. No matter. I'll be there. The last time I saw The Mars Volta it was in a venue similar to Nokia Theater -- mostly seats with overpriced beer. The band was great, but my concert cohort and I ended up feeling like old ladies for sitting during a 20-minute on-stage jam session. I need to make up for that. Granted, jamming isn't conducive to dancing, but I promise to stay on my feet all night when the group comes to the Palladium Ballroom. If you want to join me, tickets cost $35 and the doors will open at 7:30 p.m. -- Chelsea Ide
