The Northside site is a clusterfuck. Does anyone know where/when the Future of the Left show is?

10:55 is funny. That said, count me in. Bukkake or not-- this year looks great. I don't think the Future of the Left show has a venue announced??

The frontman for Future of the Left tweeted the show is 6/17 but hasn't mentioned the venue or any other info.

Does anyone know if tickets to individual shows can be purchased, or is it just badges to the entire event? I swear I saw a page to buy tickets to a specific show, but can't find it now.

Every show has individual tickets. In fact this is a lot like CMJ where a badge can get turned away in favor of a purchased ticket.

It is a great site and very intriguing and fulfilling to study. I am a giant of the things spoken about. I additionally delight in browsing the comments, yet realize that a number of people should really stay on the topic so that they can add value to the blog post. I'd also encourage all of us to book mark this post in your favourite service to help spread your message.
