==\/== ATLAS SOUND + SECRET BUDS - ADVANCE TICKETS ==\/==

buds show. Only ticket holders will be emailed the location.
----> tickets go on sale @ 5PM SAT, 3/5 @ CINDERS GALLERY

================================================
==/\== ATLAS SOUND + SECRET BUDS - ADVANCE TICKETS ==/\==
=================================================

My first guess for "secret longtime buds band" was Black Lips, but they're on tour in Europe. Bradord is definitely "friends" with Grizzly Bear, but I don't know about "longtime", so my new guess is Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but maybe that's just wishful thinking. I was also thinking maybe Deerhunter, though I'm not 100% sure why they wouldn't just say Deerhunter. Maybe it's because Deerhunter aren't supposed to play any other advertised shows before their next one in Brooklyn. Any other ideas?

I ended up seeing Atlas Sound twice at SXSW - first at the Pitchfork Party and then again the next day at Mess With Texas. Both were pretty good. Ryan Muir saw them at Mess With Texas too. More of his photos below....

Really, I not trying to be mean, but does anyone really give two shits about this clown?

Same night as Man Man/Yeasayer at Masonic Temple.
Request to Todd P. Please start your show later and email the day before for those of us who are planning to catch both shows.
Thanks

I like the Atlas Sound album and the live show is ok. But there were only about 10 people at the MHOW show. Selling advance tix hardly seems necessary.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 12:00 PM

the MHOW show was the same night as the Oscars, I believe. I doubt that is really the same crowd though.

Posted by rocked the shit | April 5, 2008 12:04 PM

how much are the tickets?

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 12:06 PM

the secret guest is actually Deerhunter, I can tell you 100%

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 12:09 PM

That makes sense considering they're recording in Brooklyn this month.

a lot of people care about Bradford Cox. He's a talented guy. Nobody forces anyone to like anything, but why do you care if others do or don't?

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 12:27 PM

that show at MHOW was the best thing i've seen all year.
this show sould be ridic.
any idea about the special guest?

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 12:42 PM

AIDS Wolf is also playing Knitting factory with Pissed Jeans that night so my guess is this'll be a late show.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 12:52 PM

Bradford's ace. Deerhunter is definitely destined to do some amazing stuff in the future. After the Fluroescent Grey EP I was hooked.

Any guesses as to where the show will be? BV, why do you say it'll be in Brooklyn? The excerpt you posted doesn't explicitly say so.

"BV, why do you say it'll be in Brooklyn? The excerpt you posted doesn't explicitly say so."

It's at Todd P show. If it's anywhere but brooklyn I'll poke my eyes out with a guitar string

"tickets go on sale @ 5PM SAT, 3/5 @ CINDERS GALLERY"

Notice the "3/5".
I'm guessing that's a typo?

Posted by b.LOUD | April 5, 2008 2:29 PM

The same night:

Pissed Jeans
Dirtbombs
Nada Surf/Superdrag
Ambulance Ltd
Man Man/Yeasayer

I was already conflicted about which show to go to, now this only makes more complicated.

The Weakerthans are playing that night as well

Posted by mp77 | April 5, 2008 3:45 PM

Can't wait for the Weakerthans that night

Well the guy who said it was 100% Deerhunter is right on the money. I just got back from Cinders where I bought a ticket. The front of the ticket says "Secret Deerhunter Show". They did not look like they had a tremendous amount of tickets for sale so i am assuming this will be in a small place instead of the obvious Market Hotel. That would also explain why only letting ticket buyers know by email the night of the show. Should be excellent. Deerhunter previewing their new material.

wow, got a ticket a cinders and they charged nine instead of eight, classy, they are just like ticketmaster

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 6:34 PM

"wow, got a ticket a cinders and they charged nine instead of eight, classy, they are just like ticketmaster"

$9.00 is cheap for this show!

Does the ticket say $8.00?

If it does, they should have just put $9.00 on the ticket and paid Cinders their $1.00 out of that so it least didn't seem like there was a service charge.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 6:49 PM

why can't Cinders get a dollar per ticket for their trouble? That hardly seems unreasonable.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 6:52 PM

honey, Ticketmaster charges upwards of $5 to $10 in service charges. A dollar for this underground gallery and zine store is not out of line, or even a big deal for you, the ticket buyer.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 6:55 PM

"why can't Cinders get a dollar per ticket for their trouble? That hardly seems unreasonable."

It's not unreasonable, but it's perception. If you can ONLY get the ticket at Cinders, then why say the ticket is $8.00 when it costs $9.00. They should just say the ticket is $9.00. If $1.00 of that goes to Cinders, GREAT, but I don't care. The ticket price is $9.00 unless I can get it somewhere else for $8.00. That's where Ticketmaster went wrong. People bitch more about ticket service charges than they do about ticket prices and half the time Ticketmaster is the only place to get tickets, so...see above.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 7:37 PM

hey 7:37. your "point" is tedious and ridiculous. nobody sells tickets for free. why not be pleased that these tickets are being sold for a cheap price at an independent space? your argument is pointless and boring.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 7:52 PM

FWIW, I appreciate Anon. 7:37's comment.

Posted by someone else | April 5, 2008 8:02 PM

A dollar is no big deal, but I agree with Anon 7:37, plus Cinders is getting more people coming into their shop by selling the tickets.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 8:12 PM

if 7:37 had his way, then all those very high Ticketmaster fees would also be "included" in the ticket price - no-one would ever know how much Ticketmaster is screwing them, it would be swept under the table.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 8:38 PM

the bands, the venue, the promoters, etc never see one cent of those "service fees" why would it make sense to hide them within the announced ticket price?

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 8:42 PM

"wow, got a ticket a cinders and they charged nine instead of eight, classy, they are just like ticketmaster"

you people are the biggest bunch of bitches I could ever imagine. You can always find something to complain about.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 8:42 PM

" no-one would ever know how much Ticketmaster is screwing them, it would be swept under the table."

What's the difference how much ticketmaster makes vs how much the promoter and band make? Ticketmaster doesn't choose to sell the tickets. The band and promoter choose to sell the tickets through Ticketmater. Ticketmatser is not screwing you. The band and promoter is screwing you. At the end of the day you paid what you paid, and how much of that money went to Ticketmaster is irrelevant.....unless you can get the tickets at a box office somewhere cheaper. Then it is relevant.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 8:45 PM

ok, here goes...

the problem is not that Ticketmaster charges a service charge, because they are in fact providing a service. RATHER, the problem with Ticketmaster is that they have a monopoly and charge WAY TOO MUCH.

There's nothing wrong with Cinders charging a dollar a head, it makes them relatively little money for their trouble, and it's about appropriate for the amount of effort and organization they have to provide.

understand now? Ticketmaster did not "get into trouble" by charging a service fee, they got into trouble by charging TOO MUCH. If those Ticketmaster fees had been hidden in the ticket price all these years, then you never would have known Ticketmaster was ripping you off, would you?

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 8:50 PM

hey 8:45: wrong again.

Ticketmaster has exclusive deals with VENUES. bands have no option as to whether the tickets for a show are sold through Ticketmaster or not. Bands and promoters also have no say in how much of a service charge Ticketmaster charges.

if you want to play in New York and you draw more than, say, 600 people, then you have virtually no choice but to play in New York at a venue that sells its tickets exclusively through Ticketmaster or it's subsidiary Ticketweb.

Do you understand now? Ticketmaster has a monopoly and they charge whatever they want. The problem isn't THAT they charge, it's WHAT they charge,

is this show all ages??

" If those Ticketmaster fees had been hidden in the ticket price all these years, then you never would have known Ticketmaster was ripping you off, would you?"

And then I wouldn't be mad at them. Which is my point. I hate them because they let me know how much to hate them. They are in trouble....with me.

There is something wrong with it. They should charge more than $1.00 so they can stay in business so they can be there next time Todd P needs somewhere to sell tickets.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 8:59 PM

it's a Todd P show. Todd P shows are always all ages.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 9:01 PM

this is all well and good, but I don't think that anyone has mentioned that SECRET BUDS = Daft Punk.

so... is this sold out?

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2008 10:43 PM

yes, and there's a line around the block halfway to Downtown Brooklyn.

you aren't getting in there unless you were inline before it was ever announced.

Posted by Anonymous | April 6, 2008 12:10 AM

Due to the quick sellout, the show has been moved to Webster Hall.

looks like only about 30 or so tickets sold so far - not sold out

Posted by Anonymous | April 6, 2008 1:14 PM

and this show is definitely deerhunter - the tickets say so....

and it's shaping up to be a bit of a solid lineup

:: ATLAS SOUND + secret longtime buds band
:::: Wolf with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
:::::: Knyfe Hyts
:::::::: more guests tba


knyfe hyts were great at the market hotel a few weeks back.

"and this show is definitely deerhunter - the tickets say so...."

thanks for confirming what 2-3 people before you already confirmed.

"knyfe hyts were great at the market hotel a few weeks back."

Which one are you in the band?

awww - poor bowery presents posters - don't you have something better to do?

Posted by Anonymous | April 6, 2008 1:37 PM

1:29, it's funny to watch you try to sound "in the know."

whereas, anyone who knows Knyfe Hyts knows that they are the Ex Models guys and that those dudes would never waste their time on self-promotion on an internet message board.

Posted by Anonymous | April 6, 2008 2:30 PM

Do the tickets give a start time? I'm wondering if I can make both the Weakerthans show and this one.

Posted by mp77 | April 6, 2008 5:56 PM

Just went to Cinders. Like someone said above it looks like they did not have many to sell and it will be in a small place because as of now

THIS SHOW IS TOTALLY SOLD OUT


sorry anyone who missed out on what is going to be an amazing show

i need to see atlas sound and deerhunter but i need to make a 3:15 am train to providence.

Posted by Anonymous | April 6, 2008 7:04 PM

^^^I'm not trying to be snarky but this is what I'd do if I were you:

1.) Realize that for some unknown reason, at least one if not many people find it amusing to frustrate and confuse people on this site by erroneously stating that certain shows are "SOLD OUT" whether they are or not, and thus, I'd cease relying on these comments for those types of answers.

2.) "Eliminate the middle man" (which in this scenario is every commentor on this site) and wait until Wednesday to either call or visit Cinders Gallery directly. They will be your only reliable source for whether they are out of tickets to this show or not.

3.) Apply this line of thinking to all future shows.

"awww - poor bowery presents posters - don't you have something better to do?"

what the fuck does that even mean? Are you implying that Bowery Presents people give a shit about this? I would say that the answer to your question is probably yes, they have plenty of better things to do. I know lots of people that work for Bowery Presents and I've never heard a single one mention anything about Todd P shows.
