has this place hired security yet? or at least somebody possessing a pair by the door?

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2008 6:21 PM

don't believe the hype. this is place is 100 yards from the train and totally safe. they have a security guard as well.

the one occurrence of someone getting their shit stolen was hardly unique to the space, plus was nonviolent, plus was the result of an idiot leaving his shit unattended.

Is the Mccarren show official yet. Or is it still "rumored" It seems a very tight squeeze for both bands.

Are there advance tickets?

if you go crazy on here
and idiots start leaving comments like "there's a line around the block (and so forth) already"
and you kids start acting manic and asking "are there tickets already?" a bagillion times
then eventually todd p or someone from his crew will see and then there WILL BE (advance tickets)and we'll have to travel to bushwick or something to get the tickets and then to ridgewood to attend the show

not complaining about the traveling or the areas just annoying that we can't just show up at a fashiionable time and know we're in
that's what i loved about these shows
or hell you might aswell go to maxwells it much smaller and way quainter and less out the way then ridgewood for those who complain about it

though maxwells is about 8 bux more (if you count the path fare, $3 RT (and have an unlimited metro))

11:56 - you are totally right. the fucking idiots on this website. It's unfortunate that the readership is what it is and the kind of juvenalia they think is 'hilarious'

nothing against monsieur Brooklyn Vegan, but with the readership being what it is, and on a quickly sliding slippery slope further downhill to crapville, I think the days of this blog's dominance are numbered.

maybe ban the anono comments?

the comments are the only reason i read this web site. i don't even care for "music"

ps, never say "anono" again. you're prolly the kind of douche who orders a "cappy" at the coffee store.

"you're prolly the kind of douche who orders a "cappy" at the coffee store."

"Soy cap," actually. Now hurry up and make it - I'm waiting.

Posted by Anonymous | June 5, 2008 11:58 AM

what time do tickets go on sale? will it sell out?

please please please repost this widely & forward to everyone you know...

---> 2NITE BLACK LIPS SHOW IS -MOVING- TO MARKET HOTEL!!
---> SHOW IS *NOT* @ RIDGEWOOD TEMPLE!!

new location: MARKET HOTEL - 1142 MYRTLE AVE @ BDWY - BKLYN - JMZ TRAIN TO MYRTLE - 8PM - $10 - 2NITE JUNE 5TH

here's what happened: due to recent fights at the venue's weekend parties, the 83rd Precinct & the NYS Liquor Commission have suddenly, temporarily banned -all- alcohol from the Ridgewood Temple - we can't sell it (we had applied & paid for a license) and you can't bring it in yourself. We went to pick up our license to sell today and this is the news we got! Faced with the prospect of a completely dry Black Lips show (that wouldn't work now, would it?), we've decided to relocate the show. Sorry, this all happened with no notice! S'OK THO - THIS SHOW WILL BE AWESOME & MARKET HOTEL IS TERRIFIC!!

---2NITE---> BLACK LIPS . Gringo Star . TITUS ANDRONICUS . So So Glos @ MARKET HOTEL

I was just outside Ridgewood Temple (the place right above Mr. Kiwi's & across from the Myrtle JMZ stop) and Black Lips were loading in and some guy with them told me:

"No advance tickets, just get here early. Black Lips is playing tonight"

to which I said: "Black Lips? No shit."

to which he said: "Yeah dude, they're right there" as he points just behind me. They were loading stuff in. So I'm thinking it hasn't moved. This was literally like 15 minutes ago around 5:45 PM.

It moved.
