Mermaid Ball Flyer

As mentioned, Azealia Banks revealed on twitter that she will play a show at Bowery Ballroom on June 3 after playing Hot 97 Summer Jam earlier that day. Bowery Ballroom confirmed the show soon after, and now the full lineup for that show, billed as "Mermaid Ball," has been revealed. As seen in the picture above, it includes Maluca, Wckids, Tigga Calore, House of Ladosha, special guest Leiomy of Vogue Revolution, plus styling by Cuntmafia, narration by Jack Mizrahi, and host Roxy Cottontail. There will also be a $1,000 cash giveaway to the person with the best mermaid costume (should make up for those scalper prices).

Tickets go on sale today (5/24) at noon. Good luck.

doesn't outright say that she's playing. hope she doesn't pull some shit and come out at the end just to do 3 songs

Is she deliberately trying to make people not want to go?

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 11:31 AM

Yeah this is turning out to be not what anyone thought it is. IF she plays at all it will be a very short set. Fuck this crap. I am just gonna get 2 tickets to sell one for an insane price and how do they say it on here "walk the fuck out"

2 per person? How the fuck am I supposed to put food on the table with restrictions like this?

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:02 PM

Pretty sure she is playing if the name of the event on TicketMaster is "AZEALIA BANKS".

Got 2. Pretty easy.

Got 2, mother fuckers!

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:04 PM

wasn't too hard. and yes she'll play a full set. if she plays for under 30 minutes, you can get a refund from TM or your cc company since it's billed as an Azealia Banks show on TM

Got 2! I think I'll sell my plus 1 for $200? What do you think?

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:07 PM

I honestly don't think these will re-sell for a lot. Maybe like $100. The 'Mermaid Ball' thing will make them harder to re-sell, not easier.

She should've done one of those shows where it's just her, no opener, no theatrics. The 'put myself on display to prove myself' kind of thing that the Frank Ocean/LDR set has been doing (and not all succeeding at, thankfully).

I guess I'll take it.

12:06 you are an idiot. Every show she has played so far has been 7 or at most 9 songs. And under 30 minutes. That is why this is being billed as Mermaid Ball now. It does not matter what ticketmaster lists it as. If you give me your address i will come and laugh at you when you try to get a refund the next day.

This is going to be some "paris is burning" bullshit all night and then at the end she will come out and do 6 or 7 songs. A short20-30 minute set

I guess if you are gay this should be fun

@1211 it doesn't matter what it's billed as on brooklynvegan, you ass. it isn't billed as a mermaid's ball show through the site which you bought tickets for it aka TM aka the site that charged your card. there it just says 'azealia banks at bowery ballroom.' tell your credit card company that you bought tickets to a show on ticketmaster billed as 'azealia banks at bowery ballroom' and showed up and it was some weird mermaid shit with no full set from azealia banks, and they'll give you a refund. unless you literally have the shittest credit card provider on the planet. and i'm not @1206

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:14 PM

12:14 you are very wrong but you will see that come June 4th when people try what you say and are rejected

Also it is not billed like that on Brooklyn Vegan bozo. It is the flyer that was made for the show put out by her

Gay here. This is gonna be awesome.

Posted by Eduardo | May 24, 2012 12:20 PM

@12:18: I'm not sure if you've ever contested a credit card charge, but in my experience they will certainly refund the purchase price for these tickets if she doesn't perform.

I don't know about this "30 minutes or less" threshold, but it would certainly seem to be a valid dispute that a major credit card would reverse the charges if the complaint was articulated well.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:22 PM

1218 is wrong 1214 is right, both of you go in a corner and think about what you've done.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:24 PM

got one, but giving it to my best friend who showed me her, hoping to scalp me a good ticket hahah which is not going to happen

Posted by Kaitlyn | May 24, 2012 12:31 PM

12:14 is absolutely wrong and 12:18 is right. Just laughing hysterically at you idiots. 12:12 clarified it perfectly. Yes if she does not perform AT ALL then you can get a refund. As long as she gets on stage and performs for a lil bit, which is all it is going to be, then you will not get any refund.

As stated above, not one show this crazy bitch has performed yet has been over 30 minutes. NOT ONE. But yeah you think with what she tweeted and the poster she put out today that it is gonna be some long performance.

BV know it all's strike again.

She is gonna play a short set at the end of this nonsense and the whiners and morons the next day are gonna complain and try to get refunds and will get rejected. Watch and see.

If you have an American Express card, they will definitely give you a refund for almost any BS that goes down.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:37 PM

Agree with 12:10, the scalp on this is not going to be much. Very low. With the annoincement today and what this show is shaping up to be, demand and interest scalping wise has gone down down down

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:40 PM

hows about you all just shut up and have a good time. how about THAT?

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:44 PM

@1231 every single phase of your plane will not work.

-can't transfer your ticket
-won't find a scalp ticket for face

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:44 PM

He actually might find a ticket for face or a little over come close to show. This is not gonna be the ticket frenzy it was first thought to be.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:46 PM

I had my Kanye West @ Bowery Ballroom tickets refunded through Ticketmaster because the venue wouldn't let anyone in until after he got onstage, making me miss the first three songs of a ~twenty song set.

Just saying.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:50 PM

As a pont of reference, there is only one ticket being sold right now on Craigslist and the person is only asking 75 for it.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:50 PM

this is her set:

212
jumanji
l8r

encore - 212 reprise

1252 word, it's not like her new EP drops in 5 days or anything

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:53 PM

@12:50 thanks for that reference which has no connection at all to the scenario being discussed.

But hey i got my tickets refunded for a show that the artist cancelled a week before.

Just sayin.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 1:17 PM

@117 connections to the scenario being discussed:

-same venue
-same concept (tickets being refunded for a show)
-same third-party (ticketmaster)
-same general concept (slated artist performed onstage, but still reason for complaint/potential refund)

or are you that stupid? just sayinnnnnn

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 1:23 PM

12:50 and 1:23, ignore the guy. He's a troll, or a complete idiot.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 1:25 PM

No actually 1:23 you are the fucking idiot here. The reference connections you make are so broad that they have no reference.

And this one, "-same general concept (slated artist performed onstage, but still reason for complaint/potential refund)" is just false

Listen moron, you got refunded because the venue fucked up and held regular ticket holders outside for no other reason then to get VIP people in. I know the situation well as I was there. People are not discussing that here dummy. They are saying they think can get a refund if they see the whole show, assuming the venue has no bullshit with getting people in, and it is not what they feel is an adequate "full: set by the artist

They are wrong and they won't get a refund.
