Tickets are also still on sale for the Slits show happening at Highline Ballroom one day later.

Back in the day Slayer/Megadeth/Testament would have been the show of the year.
What is Paul Di'Anno going to do except Maiden songs that anyone would be interested in? If he's performing "Killers" in its entirety I'm there.

As of 10:01am, no Gaga tickets.

I was poised at my desk at work like an asshole, refreshing at 9:59, as soon as Gaga tickets went on sale I clicked for two 49.50 tickets--whoops, those aren't available--and by the time I tried again, like fuck it I guess let's get them at any price, it was one moment later, and already too late. What the hell? I don't understand how you're supposed to get concert tickets to a popular performer anymore. So now when I tell this story to my girlfriend, I sound like a cheapskate because I didn't click Any Price right away. I fucking hate Ticketmaster. This is bullshit.

This particular round of gaga gouging is truly bizarre. No tix available anywhere. If the public doesn't actually have access to seats, why bother with the whole charade?

Lady Gaga should tour with Slayer.

Posted by Anonymous | November 20, 2009 10:45 AM

Well anon(s) 10:20 and 10:24, how about explaining why the fact you even come on this blog? You 2 deserve to not get tickets for anything ever for even trying to go to this show. Lady Gaga??? Really??? Do you seriously listen to that piece of shit music?

If you 2 are older than 14 or 15 i feel so sorry for you.

Hey 10:20 -

Why would you ever divulge that to your girlfriend? You tried and you couldn't get any, simple as that. No need to devalue your own stock - come on!

The alternative scumbag move here is of course to tell her you got them even though you didn't, and proceed to overpay for aftermarket tickets. Then at the show you let her know that you actually got shut out for buying the tickets through TM, and overpaid because you knew how badly she wanted to go or some crap like that. Then she'll get all "oh he's so sweet" and, who knows, might get some anal out of the deal or something. Just saying.

Lady Gaga tix here in Chicago sold out in about the same time frame. It's no surprise though. Ticketbastard lets ticket brokers get first crack at tickets. It's a shady practice, it's not just in NYC but in every major US market as well.

Seriously 10:20, Funderburgh speaks the truth

i read this blog obsessively. i listen to a ton of indie music. i also listen to a ton of pop music (as well as r&b, rock, electronica, some country, a little hip-hop, etc). i like to consider myself pretty well-rounded. i hate the holier than thou attitude on this blog (the people who find no artistic merits in anything that's mainstream). usually i find it laughable, but once in a while it gets to me.

fuck you for judging people based on the music they listen to. that's so immature. grow up.

i was trying for gaga tickets at 10am & was also shut out. and i'm annoyed about it too.

i wanted them to be a gift to my boyfriend, who LOVES the gaga. oh well. looks like i'm not the only one though.

What's the better venue, highline or bell house?

bell house

11:02, It is not a holier than thou attitude and do not kid yourself. You are not well rounded musically at all. You as well as the other 2 are idiots. There is plenty of mainstream music that is valid. Lady Gaga is not one of them. That is pure canned nonsense. The same shit they spoon out every couple of years to vapid morons like yourself. There is nothing wrong with judging people on the music they listen to or the movies they enjoy or the books they read. It speaks to your makeup.
I am glad you got shut out for those tickets. I hope you get shut out for lots more.

Oh and sad to say but if your bf loves the GAGA he is either a loser or secretly gay and probably both.

Dude, cheap seats for Slayer are only $7. That is awesome. The view from the uppers is totally decent.

Also, they are only utilizing HALF of the izod center (look at the floor plan on TM). Why not just do it one of Manhattan's larger venues? Weird

11:02 here.

my boyfriend is gay. that makes me gay too. based on your post, 11:42, it sounds like you think that's some kind of insult.

to that i say: go fuck yourself.

i don't care that you're probably an immature 16 year-old piece of shit. you're homophobic. and an asshole. and you clearly have a holier than thou attitude. don't kid yourself. grow the fuck up.

Posted by Anonymous | November 20, 2009 12:10 PM

actually 11:42, it speaks to YOUR "makeup" if you are judging people on the books they read or the music they listen to...

by your rationale if i like a catchy pop song i'm both anti-intellectual and gay?

RRRRRRRIIIIIIGGGHHHTTTT...............

If Gaga toured with slayer it might be called "JUST THRASH" tour or "SLAYER FACE" tour.

11:42 here again

11:02 you are an uneducated idiot who cannot figure out shit. I am not homophobic at all. All i sad was your bf is probably secretly gay if he loves Lady Gaga. How is that an insult? Lady Gaga has a huge gay following. I would even venture to say that most straight men in the audience at her shows are not there cause they want to be but because their gf's want to go.
Now, you taking my statement as being homophobic means that you put the negative connotation with me saying he was gay. You might want to explore your beliefs dumbass.

As for 12:12, you are another moron. It says nothing about my makeup, jackass. You can totally judge a person by what they enjoy, read and watch. And never did i say if you like a catchy pop song it makes you dumb and gay. In fact i stated quite clearly that there is plenty of good pop music out there. I was speaking to one specific piece of shit artist and her music.

Thought Slayer would bring out the anger but it was Lady Gaga, who knew.

Very true story. I picked up Stef Germanotta at a bar in the west village in 2006. Hung out with her and fucked her a few times the next few weeks until we stopped calling each other. She played me some of her music when she was still doing her Norah Jones type stuff at NYU. Kind of weirds me out now that i fucked Lady Gaga.
Tell you this though:
She is def not a hermaphrodite
She has a cute body although no tits
She is pretty energetic in bed. Very loud
Gaga does not gag
She loves it up the back road

LOL. Lady Gaga sells more records than probably every single other artist showcased on this site COMBINED. She plays for crowds that most crappy indie "musicians" can only dream of. Gaga is more talented than you can even imagine. But that's ok, you're probably jealous because you're in a failed band. Keep hating, you're only making her more famous than she already is!

I also would like to see lady gaga opening for slayer, one time manson was opening for slayer, so there is no difference in music between lady gaga and manson.
