"Lamski" is Engli-Russian for annimal collective's lame password initiative, not the password, unfortunately.

Posted by Anonymous | December 5, 2008 9:12 AM

you should send your copy to someone who can remove the watermarks, so it can be leaked, blame free and everyone can enjoy what you have hidden stashed away. you are not smart for withholding, you are a tool.
also, will i'm whinning about things, a password would be nice.

this is what i'm reading on ateaseweb:

"If you are part of the Collected Animals forum and pm the feeling store is the only way you will get tickets."

and

"it's a pre-sale for CA members only. (and registration is disabled so if you aren't a member you will have to wait until the weekend when they go on sale to the public)."

if you're a CA member, please do the right thing and share the password. i can't take this anymore.

no it is bullshit. especially since most or at least a lot of people in CA don't live in NY. so this is basically a system thats going to enable animal collective fans out of state to buy tickets to a show theyll never go to and then gouge actual new york AC fans that didn't realize they needed to sign up to a mailing list to prove their worthiness to see bands they like.

The bowery ballroom used to always release a good amount of tickets to shows the night of. And I used to never buy tickets for their shows. I got into Arcade Fire at bowery showing up 20 minutes before they played. Also got into AC at Bowery back in 2005. Sadly they do not do that anymore so I am stuck refreshing this page all day in vain.

I don't have the password, but I pray it doesn't get leaked to this blog. It would be the worst. And it would sell out in less than 5 minutes, if it hasn't already.

Though I do think they should give the password to everyone who saw them the first night at Webster last year. What a letdown.

1) Take first letter of the first five posts of this thread that are prime numbered. I.e., first post, third post, fifth post, 7th post, 11th post.

2) invert the order

3) apply palindromic conversion. B [2nd letter in the alphabet from the BEGINNING] becomes y [2nd letter in the alphabet from the END]. And so forth. Do this for all five letters.

4) Change the 'e' to an 'a'

5) Change the 'c' to a 'k'

6) That's the password.

People post on Collected Animals as an official fan forum no matter what the band is currently doing. Many of those fans were shut out of tickets for the Grand Ballroom show and the band members, who often participate in the forum, felt pretty bad about it. Some of these fans have known the band since 2000-2001.

The band decided to do a really nice thing and make sure that this "secret" show didn't sell out on these fans. So, they offered this password and asked that it not be "leaked" for today. Tomorrow or Sunday this show will be announced for general sale.

The person who posted this password not only violated the trust of the CA admin who gave them the password but also violated the trust of the band who went out of their way to do something special for their dedicated fans.

Its really not asking much to keep something within the realm of the registered members of a fan forum. Its sad that even a small request can be denied.

you're going to get your mix of douchebags regardless of whether it's the hodgepodge of commenters on this thread (i RARELY if ever comment, but chose to do so today) or it's the "more superior" folk on collected animals. i have frequented the latter on many occasion as a guest - when you didn't need to register to get much of the access and perks. to equate membership in that not-so-exclusive forum with being a bigger fan than some of the commenters on BV today is completely naive. i've seen AC quite a few times and have all of the "first pressings" dating back to 'spirit' and 'danse' and i'm sure i'm not the only one who isn't on CA but came to BV to get the password. the real fans will put the time and effort in to try and make it happen. and i would have been one to spend the $$$ from some real douche on craigslist, but isn't it better that i'm now able to go at the reasonable face price? i think so. and i sincerely thank anonymous, mimi, etc. for helping a true AC fan get tickets.

i'd like to give a special shout-out to twigs for the memories and heartbreak. and cherry not jerry garcia, and fripp&eno and pavement for soundtracking this rollercoaster ride. no thanks to joseph. i will haunt you.

i'm guessing that most AC fans are also fans of the reefer, habitually put things off, like buying tickets to their favorite band, and get upset when it sells out, then feel like they should be privileged to have their own little show that no one else is invited to, unless you have a little password, then get upset when people who really, really want to see this band beg for the password for over 12 hours and someone finally feels bad and leaks the precious password, think its bad karma or something, and give people passive aggressive guilt trips.

Go to the show and have a good time everyone. I will.

I am not a real fan of this tripe. I like Mozart. I am a ticket scalper. I bought 2 tickets which I will sell for 225 each. That is how I will supplant my income from my NGO work that is completely low paying.

Thanks and have a nice day.

I love animal collective, me and my bros used to listen to that stuff last year and Bob Marley Legend. I'm stoked for the show. I bought 18 tickets and I only need 3, so I'll probably sell the rest on Craigslist, that way I can make sure i got plenty o' supplies.

Yo, the password was only meant to be used by those on CA
Thanks for leaking it to the public, assclown

p.s. For those who didn't get a ticket, I'm sure there will be more tickets released in the next couple of days

Posted by A/S/L? on Collected Animals | December 5, 2008 2:52 PM

Seems to be sold out (for real-- I'm not one of those pointless troublemakers).

Picked up two about 40min ago-- just checked again, and it says unavailable. I know you dont believe me (and for good reason in a thread like this), so check for yourself.

Not sure of the morality, but thanks to those who posted. I think the CA people managed to keep it quiet for a while (and good for them!), but this thread is eveidence that there were a lot of real fans out there that really cared about this.

There does not need to be tension.

One solution is to wiggle and not really kick/flail

if i see any 16 yr olds on the phone or sending text messages during the show, i will crush thee.

if i see any jaded mother f'ers trying to enforce a sense of decorum so they can enjoy a good rock show without some jackass spilling beer on them or shining a cellphone or flashbulb in their face, i'll buy them a beer.

mimi gets 2 michelobs indeed. twigs/fucking twigs gets a glass of whiskey (and it's usually a good pour at the bowery).
