The Hives @ Coachella 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Hives

We could keep giving clues, but at this point many more than 10 people got it right, so the contest is over anyway. Winners have not been notified yet, but will be shortly. Meanwhile, TICKETS for the show The Studio at Webster Hall on April 26 will go on PRE-SALE at 6pm EST. The password is lexhives. will be posted shortly right HERE: _____. A general sale (with more tickets) will then begin at 8pm EST. 2 ticket limit per person. Will call only. Good luck and thanks for playing!

Wow - Why would anyone go see this band? People need to go listen to Black Flag's "My War" and call it a day.

WHERE'S THE 7TH CLUE!??!!??!?!?!?!?!

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 5:10 PM

The HIVES were great at Coachella. I watched the stream. I would know. This is coming from a non-fan as well. That's rock 'n roll folks. That's showmanship. That's how its done fuckers.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 5:10 PM

@510 i wholeheartedly agree with 'how it's done' and 'showmanship,' but idk about rock n roll. rock n roll ain't supposed to be this clean.

that being said, i would love to go to this show.

because people like different things.

better question is why you feel entitled or important enough to chime in on something so obvious

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 5:11 PM

it sucks that only 10 people got free tix, but props to the site for getting a presale to this thing, pretty wild

The Ritz Cracker clue wasn't fair to transplanted hipster hicks from Iowa.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 5:23 PM

How much?

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 5:25 PM

someone still gives a shit about the hives? they always sucked, but i thought they went away. jesus.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 5:25 PM

The Ritz cracker was a false clue. The Ritz was the upstairs Webster Hall, not the downstairs Studio.

I will give you a clue for the Pre-Sale Password:

"It's a phyto-nutrient rich tan-colored substance"

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 5:28 PM

The Hives are no where near as big a deal as Green Day.

Yes this is a small place for the Hives, but if they were playing upstairs in the regular Webster Hall it wouldn't be a big deal at all.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 5:29 PM

526 it was a huge clue you tard, especially when combined with the clue presented immediately before it (STUDIO in all caps). gtfo

5:31, THE RITZ WAS A DIFFERENT VENUE THAN THE CORRECT ANSWER.
Dumbfuck.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 5:41 PM

@541 yea i'm the dumbfuck. you couldn't connect an image of the word 'STUDIO' with an image of a ritz cracker and come to the conclusion that the answer is 'The Studio at Webster Hall.'

i'm the dumb one.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 5:46 PM

Really 546, everyone except you got the correct answer with the clues provided. I wouldn't go around calling people unintelligent.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 5:48 PM

Alright Ticketmaster may fuck you in terms of pricing, but this Ticketweb site is the worst fucking thing I've ever dealt with. Consistently a cluster fuck.

I never even got through the waiting room and was in right at 6. fuck that.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 6:06 PM

When I was in the waiting room, Ticketweb said I was definitely they're favorite person in line. Were they lying to me?

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 6:07 PM

got 2 at 6pm!

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 6:07 PM

I always put "Your Mom" for Question 1 of that survey. Does that make me immature?

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 6:08 PM

You think you had it bad? I was on the phone, and they said there was a system delay and that they wouldn't let me stay on the line while they waited for the system to sort itself out. This was as 5:59 turned to 6PM.

Thanks BV! Won two tickets - good luck to the rest of ya.

i never went to a waiting room, got two tickets in my "cart", but I can;t checkout. does it ever disappear from your cart if it is sold out?

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 6:09 PM

FYI i just pulled 2, keep trying.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 6:12 PM

Couldn't pull two, but just pulled 1

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 6:15 PM

Ticketweb lets other people snatch the tickets from you if you're in the process of checking out. Couple that with the obnoxious survey and it makes it really hard to get tickets.

That said, I was able to get one this time but that site really needs to get it's shit together.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2012 6:16 PM

@615 I pulled them one at a time. keep it in your cart and try for another
