Come

"Tickets for "The Lost Weekend" aka Matador's 21st birthday celebrations at The Palms will go on sale this Friday morning at 9am, PST. Here's the details you've been hassling all of us about over the last week (and don't think we don't appreciate it)...
That message is from Matador Records, and is continued below...

tickets

a) Tickets/Pricing : An initial quantity will be on sale Friday for $199.00. .After the $199.00 tickets sell out, the price increases to $225. A Ticketfly.com link will be posted on this site on Thursday, July 8th. Starting Friday, you'll have the opportunity to reserve standard rooms at the Palms for the discounted rate of $99 per night (the full 3 nights of the festival, only). The rooms feature two double bed and occupancy of up to 4 persons is allowed. The above rate is only available when purchasing tickets thru us. If you are interested in upgrading to a larger room or a suite you will be able to do so after purchasing the standard room. TICKETS FOR THE 3 NIGHTS + ROOMS are being sold jointly -- we're not selling tickets to the shows separately at this time, nor are we selling tickets for individual nights.

(ADDENDUM -i) A limited number of 3-day tickets priced at $250--with no Palms reservation required -- will be available Friday morning at 9am PST via Ticketfly.com
ii) if, for example, you're buying 4 tickets to the shows, the $99 per night hotel fee can cover up to 4 people. $297 over 3 nights divided by 4 is hopefully not an crazy amount to charge for rooms in a world class resort).

B) VIP tickets. A limited number of VIP packages will be available at $399.00 -- details about what you'll get for the $399 are forthcoming. You'll have the ability to upgrade from the regular tickets, assuming the VIP tickets aren't sold out.
C) Venue. The room in question is the 2100 seat Pearl at the Palms.

D) MORE BANDS. OK, we're working on it. But in addition to the 19 artists confirmed on the above poster, we can confirm the original lineup of COME -- Thalia Zedek, Chris Brokaw, Sean O'Brien and Arthur Johnson -- will be participating. Actually, we already know who some of the other bands are, we're just trying to drag this out. MORE MATABLOG CONTENT between now and October!
E) Set times - we'll post these the week before the event.
F) These shows are open to all ages. However, access to the casino floor is limited to those 21 and over.
F) WHAT ABOUT LAS VEGAS HUMANS? Las Vegas' Zia Records is selling 50 tickets to "The Lost Weekend" starting Friday, July 9 at noon. You'll need a Nevada I.D. Reservations at the Palms are not required to purchase these tickets.

About an hour after this sells out, GBV-classic will announce their tour plans hitting every conceivable city they can turn a buck in.

Throw in the Pizzicato Five and I'm in!

Strange but true fact: Hot new bands with members below the age of 30 hit "every conceivable city they can turn a buck in" as well.

Is this fest just to prove that Matador hasn't signed a worthwhile band in over 10 years? Fogey Fest 2010.

Posted by Anonymous | July 6, 2010 8:46 PM

matador bands were never the best bands going in the nineties

I'll take K records, Kill Rock Stars, Teenbeat over the Matador roster anyday

Posted by Anonymous | July 6, 2010 10:11 PM

but this is Matador's festival, so why you got to be a dick?

Posted by Anonymous | July 6, 2010 11:15 PM

Does Matador think it's being funny doing this in Vegas?
Vegas, where it's all about style and money and nothing to do with heart or meaning.
I guess Indie-rock is officially dead. (I'm joking here-sort of), long live the age of Pitchfork-style over substance.

The idea is great, but why Vegas?
Oh because Matador likes being snarky. I forgot.

Possible extra band:
Interpol

other possible extra band:

BAILTER SPACE

8:46 look at the last two groups of bands, you dummy.
Kurt Vile, Fucked Up, Cold Cave, Ted Leo, Girls, Shearwater, Harlem.

They should totally do a "Weekend at Jay Reatard's" for this festival.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2010 10:31 AM

"come were never that great."


Fuck you. Really... fuck you. Idiot.

@ Jack

I'm assuming it's because they're turning 21. 21, going to Vegas so you can gamble, yadda yadda, wocka wocka. I mean, yeah, it's funny but goddamn -- Vegas? Killing me here.

And mock all you want, haters, just because you're into the new shit now, don't pretend you never liked at least 60% of the bands listed on that bill.

"Possible extra band: Interpol"

Much as I'd like for that to be true, Interpol will be in Spain and Portugal that weekend with already-announced dates.

i'm still bitter this isn't in NYC. As an above poster noted, get the Vegas-21 irony, but come on Matador, you are a New York label, this is your home, throw your friggin party here! Vegas, give me a break!
