People who got into Bowery paying above face made for a shit crowd and they got called out on it.

Regina center orchestra tickets were being given away free with the purchase of small fries at McDonalds @ Bwy + 169th before the show

LOL @ idlefrog masturbating to his moms tonight

Lies lies and more lies about Beach House. I was hanging outside for a good while. There was a line of about 40 people who had fake tickets. Not that many people selling and the ones that did were only getting around 50 to 60 which was about what they were going for online. No one paid 8x Face. Also, the people who got called out by Alex were press people. Certainly not people who paid for tickets. He simply said it was the quietest sold out crowd he had ever seen and that it was probably all the press people.

12:44 is mad because Aziz Ansari didn't high-five him at Bowery.

1:22 needs a lot of work on his jokes.

i felt sorry for some of the fake tickets people

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 4:41 AM

So easy to spot a fake: just put the hard ticket against a light bulb or the flashlight in your smartphone. Background turns to neon blue? That's a real ticket. Remained white? A fake!

You're welcome.

Btw the ”dude” with the date post from craigslist ended up meeting a beautiful interesting girl. I know that for a fact since I am him and he is me.
Here's for our second date, Miss C !!

I don't know what the band had to complain about with the crowd, their show was a snooze fest. They are boring live, period.

Posted by Me | May 16, 2012 6:59 AM

1:03 - you're totally wrong, she wore a red shirt. Well, we might as well be talking about what she wore, since you obviously lack even a remedial level of reading comprehension. Availability and price of tickets on SH/eBay/CL is not the same as quality of performance. I don't know how much they are paying high school teachers in Iowa these days, but I can say that your teachers have done you a great disservice by allowing you to graduate with such a poor ability to communicate.

6:55's these song:

I got a girl with a little rubber head
Rinse her out every night just before I go to bed
She never talk back like a lady might do
An' she looks like she loves it every time I get through

And her name is
P-I-N, no lie
K-Y, me-oh-my
She's $69.95
Give her a try

No show from last night is going to compare to watching the world freak out over Greece this morning. Hope you shorted the Euro, kiddies!

I'm pretty sure the fake tickets were the print at home kind. The light trick doesn't work for those.

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 8:20 AM

@820am but common sense does. if you think your ticket is fake, just call ticketmaster and confirm.

if you think your ticket is real, and the seller might have printed out multiple copies of the same ticket, show up early and make sure you're the first one to use it at the door so you'll get in.

or just use stubhub - most fakes are from CL

I wouldnt spend more than face value for this show... Sorry! To those that did and got fake tickets that is unfortunate! Its the way it goes! There are some aholes out there trying to take advantage of people like you!

Regarding fake tickets
10:49 you are so very mistaken. Most of the fakes these days are coming from stubhub. It is rife with fakes these days. Both the printouts and the actual tickets. There are some guys going around these days who have blank hard tickets and just print out the information per show. Yes the holding up to the light works for the hard ones. Amazingly, stubhub people do not check them when they receive them
Also calling ticketmaster will do nothing. They will not check if it is a fake for you

If you want to buy safely off CL it is easy. Ask the seller to see all their personal info. Drivers license etc. Ask to see the receipt fr ticketmaster. If at all possible ask to pick up ticket from where they live or a verifiable work place. Anywhere you can find them after if they screw you. If the seller wavers then it is most likely a fake. Always works for me. I have never bought a fake off of cl
