CYHSYTickets are on presale for another Clap Your Hands Say Yeah show in NYC - this one is at the new Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 10th (one day before the Gramercy).

The initial Fall lineup for the Music Hall of Williamsburg is as follows:

September
4: Patti Smith and Her Band (previously announced)
7: Joseph Arthur & The Lonely Astronauts
8: Vampire Weekend
10: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
14: The Walkmen
15: Bonde do Rolê with Plastic Little
19: The Black Lips with The Selmanaires and Nice Boys (previous)

29: Jose Gonzalez (previous)

October
3: BORIS and Damon & Naomi with Michio Kurihara
8: Sunset Rubdown
9: High On Fire with Mono, Panthers, Coliseum (presale July 13)

"Tickets for the initial September and October shows will go on sale Friday, July 13 at noon, unless otherwise noted. Additional Music Hall of Williamsburg shows will be announced soon."

TICKETWEB "FEE STRUCTURE"

Through the new agreement with Ticketmaster, fans will be able to purchase tickets for events at all Bowery Presents venues at a fee structure virtually the same as that of former ticketing partner, TicketWeb.
More below...

"This decision to move to Ticketmaster allows us to maintain our dedication to providing easy access to tickets and entry into clubs, given our recent expansion," said Michael Swier, a partner in The Bowery Presents. "Considering our solid history with Ticketmaster as the owners of TicketWeb, we believe they have come to know not only our market but also our commitment to low ticketing fees."

In September, The Bowery Presents will open a second box office at the Music Hall of Williamsburg that will sell tickets to all of The Bowery Presents' venues -- Music Hall of Williamsburg, Bowery Ballroom, Mercury Lounge and Webster Hall - and to select Bowery Presents concerts. As at the Mercury Lounge box office, this outpost will offer cash-only ticket sales with no additional fees.

The Music Hall of Williamsburg will open on September 4th with a sold-out performance by Patti Smith and Her Band and will be the first Brooklyn music venue to be managed and operated by The Bowery Presents. Inspired by the look and feel of the Bowery Ballroom, and committed to providing the best experience possible for bands and fans, the 550-capacity Music Hall of Williamsburg will have a focus on acoustics, sightlines and space. The venue will feature state-of-the-art sound, lighting, broadcasting and recording systems, which will also have the capability to be used for Internet, TV and radio broadcasts.

looks mostly impressive, if not very adventurous at all.

Those ticket prices are waaaay high. Vampire Weekend is pulling $12 a ticket all of a sudden?

Posted by ash | July 10, 2007 2:41 PM

That looks like a pretty good lineup to me!

Posted by danfun | July 10, 2007 2:42 PM

wasn't vampire weekend's bowery show $12?

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 3:05 PM

vw was supposed to be the opener...the headliner had visa issues i think?

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 3:09 PM

"virtually the same"

we shall see

I do like the creation of a 2nd Box office though.

Posted by Chris | July 10, 2007 3:13 PM

$20 to see Jose Gonzalez is a bargain. The guy is amazing live.

Posted by Christopher | July 10, 2007 3:15 PM

What exactly is the difference between Ticketmaster & Ticketweb? Ticketmaster owns Ticketweb, so going from one to another doesn't really change anything does it? "virtually" the same fee structure sounds about accurate.

Posted by Marlon | July 10, 2007 3:19 PM

Ticket fees low, maybe. But ticket prices? $37.50 to see Yeah Yeah Yeahs at Webster Hall? And booking bands like Interpol into MSG? I mean, I used to live downstairs from Paul Banks on 13th st, I love Interpol -- but seeing them at MSG? Things are getting a bit crazy around here...

zaph, i'm really glad you decided to masturbate all over this comment section. it tastes delicious.

Boris and Damon & Naomi on the same bill?!?!

Tres bizarre yet somehow apropos.

now bowery is going to ticketmaster?

so what is the difference between bowery and clear channel now?

nothing apparently.

Why can't people finally admit it? BP is all about the $$$ now.

Boris with Damon & Naomi is a very odd pairing.

It isn't really such an odd pairing. Both Boris and Damon & Naomi have done an album with Ghost.

"Why can't people finally admit it? BP is all about the $$$ now."

Why can't you people ever realize that the music industry is a business just like everything else and each faction of the business is all about the $$$? Maybe promoters should just stop booking concerts all together. Then at least people could stop whining all the time.

Posted by CN | July 10, 2007 4:10 PM

ticketmaster ownes ticketweb. if you search a show on ticketmaster it redirects you to ticketweb. its been that way for a while.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 4:12 PM

BP has always been dealing with Ticketmaster, through Ticketweb, so there's no real difference. If anything it will make ticket distributing more reliable and it's pretty impressive if they can get TM to stick with fees that we're used to. We'll see though.

this is news?

CN, thank you!!!! I dont care who you are in the music business or what you do... you gotta eat. If a band isn't making money, their most likely not making music because they have to work a shitty job like the rest of us.

what?? 99.9% of all bands make no money, most all actually lose money.

successful sell outs are very much in the minority. most bands "sell out" and keep on *losing* money.

VAMPIRE WEEKENDDDD

VW is all over the place. They big enough to headline yet? I doubt it somehow.

You won't have to deal with Ticketweb or Ticketmaster at all if you just go to one of the venues.

yeah, i used to live downstairs from Bob Dylan on 4th street, so i guess i should get to see him for free...

Posted by carlo | July 10, 2007 4:33 PM

if you've been a band for more then 5 years and your still losing money...i think you need to seriously reivaluate your business stratagy and possibly your career.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 4:41 PM

very excited for damon and naomi. saw them w/ ghost at knitting factory years ago and it was really great. i guess this boris guy should be cool too. although, this time they aren't opening for pj harvey (like they did when I saw them at knitting factory).

Funniest thing I've read in a while. Guess I shoulda got an MBA before I decided to play music.

Posted by Mackie | July 10, 2007 4:49 PM

First rule of rock: If you reivaluate your business stratagy while living downstairs from a future celebrity you will get to see Interpol for free at MSG. Perhaps.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 4:54 PM

yeah.

It'd be pretty stupid to be in a band and make music because you LIKE MAKING MUSIC.

"sorry landlord i have no money this month- can i play you a song instead?"

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 4:58 PM

if i could make money in music, instead of the shit job i do now, i would do it in a second...

if it involved booking interpol at MSG, i would still do it in a second...

i really dont see the moral conflict in that...

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 5:02 PM

I wouldn't pay to see a Vampire Weekend headlining show for all the gold in Castlevania.

Now a band of those annoying Medusa heads that knock you off platforms all the time, THAT I'd pay to see.

And... also the Walkmen.

Probably.

Posted by Simon Belmont | July 10, 2007 5:33 PM

what's the big deal about earning some cash? why aren't people willing to pay to see concerts?

Posted by shannon | July 10, 2007 5:50 PM

can the tix hours possibly stay open till 8 at the williamsburg location? it's a bitch to get down to Mercury by 7 after work. glad at least they'll be selling tix somewhere else now.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 5:53 PM

High on Fire was originally scheduled @ Webster so hooray.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 6:22 PM

Looks like the Ticketmaster fees aren't too bad for MHoWB. If you buy a 35$ Patti Smith ticket the total price is $41.55. Buying a $35 Travis ticket for Irving Plaza after fees is a mighty $48.80. That's a difference of $7.25, kids. Not too shabby.

Posted by Greg | July 10, 2007 7:12 PM

Music for music's sake is great, but there is a capitalist component to most everything, with the possible exception of charity work. Even BV, who we all love, has advertisements for all kinds of shit on this website.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 7:16 PM

by the way...

a friend of mine has 2 extra tix for the Saturday Travis gig at Irving if anyone is interested. I think they are $90 for the pair....

Posted by travis tixx | July 10, 2007 7:18 PM

hey travis tixx scalper,

the tickets are NOT sold out, you can get them for $35 each at the irving plaza box office.

nice try, LOSER.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 7:30 PM

scalper? They cost $90 with the fees. Kind of the gist of the entire post bright spark. So $70 it is for anyone interested. I will cover the other $20. That said if you want them the price is $250 for you zeroboy...

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 8:13 PM

Sure, they cost 90 with the fees if you were STUPID enough to buy extras at ticketmater with the hope that you'd make a profit scalping them.

Unfortunately for you they didn't even sell out so now you're STUCK with tickets that ANYONE can easily get for 35 each at irving plaza with no hassle and a guarantee that they aren't fakes like yours may well be.

If you're lucky you'll get 60 for the pair.

Nice try SCALPERBOY!

will we still be able to buy tickets for bowery shows from the merc lounge, fee-free?

only if you RSVP thru going.com first.

Do you mean the "Music Hall of the East Village"?

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 11:21 PM

I think they are trying to keep some continuity, so the official name will be the "Music Hall of the East Village at the Mercury Lounge"

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2007 11:48 PM

I wish wish wish with all of my heart that venues would just start using brown paper tickets to sell their tickets. The fees are sooo much easier to digest and the customer service is way better.

Well done.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah is also playing Bowery Ballroom on November 13. Tickets are onsale now. $15.

Posted by anon | July 23, 2007 5:15 PM

This is hilarious tix are cheaper on ebay than at the ticketmaster for like everything, this gig, the police, Bjork, Rage, muse, I love it. Even for sold out hard to get seats its mad cheaper.
For example
tix CYHSY 37 for 2 after ticketbastard
then some dude picked up a pair for 1 red cent plus shipping, and there so many more CYHSY.
