Topshop (TURBOW)
Topshop

There's a free show Saturday, April 25th at The Shank (98 Bayard St @ Leonard St) with Crystal Stilts, Wavves, These Are Powers, Crash Diet Crew, and Muggabears (who are apparently now called Grooms).

It's free...but you have to have a ticket. The Topshop/Topman store in Soho will be giving the tickets away on Friday, April 24th between 2-7pm to those who present a college ID.

Crystal Stilts also have shows coming up at Maxwell's, The Bell House, and Cake Shop. WAVVES, who lives in California, was just here in March.

Is this inside of some hipster store? or is it outside?

The Shank is an actual venue in Brooklyn - Todd P throws shows there, for one (and that line-up looks like a Todd P line-up).

But you have to go to the hipster store in SoHo to get the tickets.

And be a college student? If only the senior citizen class auditors all got together to go and fuck up Topshop's big branding event hopes.

"And be a college student?"

Topman is prejudice against dumb people.

BV clarify, is this for student ID's of the mentioned schools or any student ID from any school???

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 1:57 PM

It does not say if what schools the IDs need to be from or if they are current or expired. So if you still have yours, give it a shot.

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 1:57 PM

they cant tell if its expired b/c most of them don't have expiration dates on them

At what time is the actual show at the Shank?

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 2:38 PM

I think it's just "Grooms".

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 2:40 PM

I'm confused.

I probably need more college.

Print out a square with an image of a college ID on it and laminate it with packing tape, bring to store, get ticket

people actually listen to this shit??

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 3:18 PM

listening to shitty music is so 2008

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 3:19 PM

man there is too many other things going on Friday to deal with this shit.

Last Friday I saw a copy of These Are Powers' newest CD for $3.50 in the plastic tub of CDs (not the metal rack) at Angel Street Thrift Store on West 17th Street in Manhattan.

The bottom of the flyer states that you can "pick up your FREE tickets at the store, that you must have your college ID, and that students get 10% off". I'm pretty sure they just said they'll give you 10% off a free ticket. So, like, they'll OWE you money. Sweet deal.

This also seems like something that should be on an IQ quiz. "If all students are college ID holders, but not all college ID holders are students, that how many students end up with chlamydia by sophomore year?"

Shit like this is waaaay more lame than all of the summer tours that get shit for being nothing but corporate shilling events. If only because indie rock is supposed to be "legit".

10% of zero is still zero.

Crystal Stilts are also opening for Dean and Britta at Prospect Park on August 1

Posted by Benjamin Gardner | April 21, 2009 5:01 PM

10 percent off merchandise in the store you morons..come on now

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 5:02 PM

Good point, 4:40. Though I think the 10% off is in the store itself. And I'm pretty sure you can get tickets with an ID from any college, not just the four on the poster.

Posted by hornblower | April 21, 2009 5:12 PM

nathan from wavves is a spoiled lil brat rich kid cunt who never had to work for anything in his life

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 5:59 PM

I wonder if Crystal Stilts know they are playing this show? Not on their myspace...

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 6:14 PM

Its a free show, are u guys that dumb , the 10 percent is for shopping in the store..holy shitt

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 6:14 PM

how many tickets can you get with your id? 1? 2?

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 6:58 PM

i'm assuming one ticket per id

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2009 7:14 PM

oh my 5:59. there are many rich kids in the world and i don't think we should hate them just because they are wealthier than we are. i've realized this from going to a private college. being rich doesn't necessarily make someone awful. and when I met him he was nice, just shy I guess.

"Crystal Stilts are also opening for Dean and Britta at Prospect Park on August 1"

Oh well...I *was* planning on going to that show. I guess I'll find something else to do if they're opening.

"there are many rich kids in the world and i don't think we should hate them just because they are wealthier than we are"

indeed. we should hate them for thinking that gives them the license to make shitty music.

"Good point, 4:40. Though I think the 10% off is in the store itself."

Oh, yeah, I figured as much. I found the thought process behind "they'll give me 10% of nothing!" too amusing not to point out, though. Terrible wording on whomever designed the flier's part.

Posted by Anonymous | April 22, 2009 12:24 AM

do you have to go to one of the four schools to get a ticket?

Posted by Anonymous | April 22, 2009 3:34 AM

i don't know. i really like his music. i think it's good.i don't think him being rich/well off made him feel like therefore he should make an album and he will be successful because he is rich. i think that argument can be used for children of celebrities but not for an average kid from san diego. anyway my original comment stands. he's ridiculously cute. he's sooooo tiny and has doe eyes.so cute!actually he could probably be a total bastard but i'd still think he looked like a doll.

I agree would should not hate the rich because there rich.
We should hate rich people for being fascist's. Who make the population think that free health care is evil.

Posted by mike flood | April 22, 2009 6:28 AM

i've seen nathan after making 15 hour drives just to play a house show so like how do you know he doesn't work for anything? you're just jealous. go do something besides hate or go disappear.

Posted by Anonymous | April 22, 2009 9:26 AM

What time is this show? Seriously.

Posted by Anonymous | April 23, 2009 6:27 PM

Posted by Anonymous | April 23, 2009 6:55 PM

Posted by Anonymous | April 23, 2009 6:56 PM

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2009 10:02 AM

SO- you have to be a student????

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2009 11:20 AM

its his entitlement attitude that comes from being rich, had everything handed to him on a platter. have you ever seen him at a show that didnt go well, where everyone wasnt sucking his dick? how did he handle it? im sure he's never worked a shit job and probably never will have to until he fades into obscurity, fucking arrogant prick. he's not as shy as you think.

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2009 6:21 PM

show is free and open to everyone now!

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2009 10:38 AM

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2009 10:49 AM

Posted by isayhello | April 25, 2009 11:07 AM
