finally didnt get fucked in the system. got a ticket for the xx!!!! :)

goddamn it gaslight anthem sold out so fast. can never score a ticket in time :(

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:05 PM

I did not get tickets to the walkmen, oh well, I just wanted to hear the volkswagen song anyway, I probably would have given the tickets to my cousins they are the biggest walkmen fans around these parts

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:08 PM

The xx show cannot be sold out. Ticketmaster/BP puts a hold on about 1/2 the tickets and claims its sold out, announces a 2nd show to create more of a demand then sells the remaining tickets for the first show in the secondary market.

It's getting way too obvious. It's a shame bands allow this to happen.

mom and pop broker here....email me for tix....5xface@aol.com

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:09 PM

@1209 that's usually true, but doesn't happen for t5 shows. you don't see t5 ticket releases very often.

they will schedule another show, though.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:11 PM

got three extra tiXX you know the email right?

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:11 PM

Of course the Walkmen show sold out. BNM = sold out show.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:12 PM

its one thing for there to be a ticket clusterfuck for the radioheads and lcd's of the world, but when gaslight anthem and the xx and walkmen are selling out instantly its getting silly

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:12 PM

the xx won't add a second date on this tour. they will come back probably and play radio city/ beacon though. which won't be nearly as good.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:14 PM

@12:12 walkmen didnt get BNM, but it certainly deserves it

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:14 PM

animal collective is better

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:15 PM

scored 2 to XX and 3 to Polica...

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:15 PM

it's nyc. there's a lot of demand and not as much supply. i love these conspiracy theories (although, yes, things like xx they hold back tickets), especially since all these shows are actually packed to capacity and the secondary market is rarely huge. there will be like 30-50 walkmen tickets available on the cragislist, etc. but not some insane amount that warrants sinister thoughts. it's a popular band playing a small show, it sold out fast. it happens.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:16 PM

T5 isn't a small venue

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:17 PM

could anyone pull more than a single walkmen ticket?

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:19 PM

Why were tickets for the xx not being sold at Merc Lounge? Of all shows, why only that one?

(bought tix during Amex presale; not an amateur scalper)

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:19 PM

@1219 i pulled 4 walkmen and 4 xx, 100% true story

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:19 PM

Re: the Walkmen, the first few times I tried to search I got "nothing available" but then after a minute I was able to buy four tickets. I'm sure it's all sold out by now but retrying your search on TM several times is apparently worth doing right after tickets go on sale. Those CAPTCHAs are brutal!

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:20 PM

@12:19 wanna let me buy a walkmen ticket off ya?

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:20 PM

xx are adding a show august 3rd.

they play t5 august 2nd. jamie xx dj's moma ps1 on august 4th. terminal 5 isn't booked on august 3rd. 1+1+1 = 3.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:21 PM

i havent heard of any of these bands am i missing anything?

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:22 PM

BNM?

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:23 PM

Just because there's a day gap doesn't mean they're playing more.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:23 PM

1223 a day gap where the band is staying in nyc and has no plans that night. if you had the opportunity, would you rather pull in another quick 20 g's or sit on your ass and rest that night?

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:25 PM

add a Bowery Presents tee to your order for a great price?!?! yes, please.

@1220 yea just hit me up at 100xface@gmail.org

dude the xx sold out instantly and people are selling them online already for 70some bucks...no mathlete here but that is a lot of work for 10 bucks a ticket

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:35 PM

Miscommunication and i have too many: a_pov@hotmail.com 2 tickets 110$ for the pair.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:39 PM

Oh oops it would be good if i said they were xx tickets i'm selling.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:40 PM

sell em quick before the 2nd show is announced and u lose 100 bucks or so

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:43 PM

1235 what, a mouse click, and then typing, and then another mouse click? not really a lot of work for $10/ticket.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:46 PM

I'm really pissed off. I tried to purchase tickets through the presale for xx AT noon yesterday and they were already sold out. WTF? I can't understand. I have wasted approximately 5 hours trying to find tickets. This is some bullshit. It's like one of the few things I can/want to do before I go to med school later that month.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:48 PM

1248 then pay the extra 20 bucks on stubhub, jesus.

5 hours? working minimum wage you could've earned the difference by now.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:50 PM

two $50 tickets to the xx vs. six $18 rum and cokes at some lounge.


either way you're paying ~$100 for sex.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 12:53 PM

12:48 buy my tickets.

"1223 a day gap where the band is staying in nyc and has no plans that night. if you had the opportunity, would you rather pull in another quick 20 g's or sit on your ass and rest that night?"

I think this is just a quick promo hype tour of the US since their new album doesn't come out until Sept. Me thinks the proper tour will hit Radio City.

i tried literally 30 straight times to get walkmen tickets... no luck. might they add another show? will they be back in the fall or winter?

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 1:44 PM

Walkmen will be back probably after Europe I am sure

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 1:47 PM

Why didn't any of you do what I did and order the LP from Other Music for $14? I got my record and ticket to the Bowery show in the mail today. It was announced here, there and everywhere and no one seemed to care much!

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 1:55 PM

I'm sure we all feel bad for the med student who won't be able to see the xx, of all bands.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 1:56 PM

why hasnt somebody noted that none of these bands are even relevant

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 1:59 PM

The Walkmen are flying home from Spain for this show and then going right back to Portugal. It's a big industry fest, a showcase for the new album, and it's being streamed live by Spotify, who you can bet probably have a big chunk of the tickets, along with the label. These last minute one-off shows at BB always sellout before they go on "sale."

1:55 is right though, we had our chance via the Other Music deal. Just saw them at BAM, they were fantastic.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 2:04 PM

1:59 OMG NOT RELEVANT what will I do?! OMG OMG save me!

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 2:09 PM

1:56 haha they're one of my favorite bands. I'm just pissed that it was easier to see the great Sonic Youth with Dinosaur Jr. and Cold Cave than it is to see these guys. And I think that show was less expensive too

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 2:14 PM

@155 bc e-tickets are easier to sell brah

@159 yea, bc a band with a highly-celebrated first album, touring in anticipation of the release of their sophomore album in september is irrelevant.

@144 i had zero problem. how expensive could they possibly be on stubhub anyway, it's the walkmen

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 2:14 PM

Yeah, the Walkmen deal at Other Music was the bee's knees. 15 bucks for a vinyl and a ticket. It was worth taking a lunch break for that.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 2:29 PM

i'd kinda rather sit down for the xx. unless their new album is dancy or something, idk. doesn't seen like standing room music to me.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 2:50 PM

"@144 i had zero problem. how expensive could they possibly be on stubhub anyway, it's the walkmen"

you really think there's going to be walkmen tickets on stubhub?

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 3:40 PM

"Walkmen will be back probably after Europe I am sure"

yes but they'll be playing T5 or some shit. bowery is the preferred venue my friend

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 3:41 PM

@1:55 i cared enuff and tried but they were out by the time i was able to give it a go

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 4:26 PM

@340 yes, i really, really do. try looking for yourself.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 4:37 PM

Reading through all yr comments, and HAHA. Oh man.

Re: the xx: they never have one-off 'hype shows' at Terminal 5. There will be a second show added.

Re: the Walkmen: don't they still have tickets at Other Music right now? They are even cheaper than Ticketmaster.

Re: American Nightmare and/or Polica: you didn't "score" these tickets. These tickets will be worth ~$5 day-of-show.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 5:00 PM

@5:00 other music sold out of tix hours after it was announced, during work hours of a week day. obvi we all would have done that if possible

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2012 5:33 PM

in 2 days I've offloaded my XX tix....holla.
