Thanks to Doug for creating a diversion while I get my Charlatans tix on Friday.

Shit Yeah! Now I don't feel so bad about missing Siren to go to see Wilco @ Dutchess Stadium...

This is awesome. Built to Spill would be sick at Maxwells.

i'm guessing siren fest isn't allowing any NY dates so they are all playing in NJ...

The best Built to Spill shows Ive seen have been at tiny venues (in comparison to what they usually play). They always look like theyre having so much more fun in small places. Hooray!

The best BTS shows were the shows with the Black crows. They were never that good since those shows. When Doug sang She talks to Angels with Chris, I had chills running down my nose.

I know it doesn't compare to the size/vibe of Maxwells, but do any older bastards remember when they were the 'secret guests' at an Up Records showcase at Tramps? That was good times. Went to see land of the loops. First time i heard Modest Mouse. Bonus beardings with the bts show.

I like any band that accepts Ewoks as one of their members.

WTF. Already none available at 12:01. I had no idea these guys could sell out any place in a minute.

Posted by Anonymous | May 29, 2009 12:07 PM

goto tunes in Hoboken. They should have tickets atleast through the end of the day.

and I'm not surprised at all it sold right out. its only about 200 tix @ maxwells through TicketWeb. so if you buy the max of four, thats 50 people. I'll believe 50 people refreshed there browser @12:00:01.

oh yeah i got 4, no problem.

so, i must ask if you were ready to buy at 1201, you must have know they would go fast. y didn't u just be ready and get tix right at 12?

Does anyone know the capacity of Maxwell's?

Posted by Anonymous | May 29, 2009 12:46 PM

maxwells' capacity is 200

Posted by Anonymous | May 29, 2009 12:53 PM

Here's hoping the annoying gabbers from the Terminal 5 show stand right next to the "I got a ticket" braggers.

Though 50/50 chance they are them already.

Posted by Anonymous | May 29, 2009 12:57 PM

f someone commented in a libelous fashion here, and the party who was perceived as being harmed as a result of that content ended up contacting you, are you telling me that you would take action rather than redirecting the complain to the comment owner?
