American Football

As previously mentioned, American Football are reuniting this year and have announced two shows, including Pygmalion Festival and NYC's Webster Hall on October 11.

Tickets for the NYC show go on BrooklynVegan presale today (4/24) at noon. PASSWORD: NEVERMEANT. Good luck!

UPDATE: Ticketweb is very confusing because they write "this event is not on sale yet" even when there's a presale, before the presale and after the presale, but the presale did pop up for a second and unfortunately sold right out. Regular sale begins Friday at noon!

UPDATE 2: They're going for insane prices on StubHub but don't buy them there! Like we said, the regular sale begins Friday (4/25) at noon.

In other '90s emo reunion news, Mineral announced a tour and The Jazz June are streaming a new song.

11:56, thanks. I just wondered how popular they had actually become. I missed a chance to see them in 1999 that had roughly 100 people at it. Now I'm kicking myself.

So I had the page they linked us to up, waited.....didn't work. Said tickets didn't go on sale until tomorrow at noon. But if you went to ticket web, searched "American Football", and clicked on the link, then there was a place to put in the code and select tickets...alas it was too late, and it informed me it was sold out.

The code entry didn't even pop up for me until 12:06. I was refreshing from noon on. Worst luck ever. Not feeling very good about tomorrow. Might have to go to Pygmalian Fest.

I don't even care that they're sold out. I'm pissed that the link never even loaded an option to put in the password...for me at least.
Waste of time BV

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2014 12:09 PM

Here's what happened to those of you just joining us: the presale module went live around 12:05 and immediately the tickets available for BV presale sold out. I don't know if that means the whole show sold out, or just if BV had a certain number of tickets set aside.

$550 sounds like a totally reasonable amount to pay for this show.

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2014 12:11 PM

I have to assume the show isn't sold out and its just the limited presale. (assume = hope)

how much were the tickets?

Yeah, it's definitely just the presale that is sold out.

To you guys who got tickets, how much were they?

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2014 12:13 PM

they were $25 for the two seconds that the presale was live

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2014 12:13 PM

If you look at the site's source code it says tickets start at $25. Webster Hall's standing room so I'd imagine that's what'll be...before we have to resort to the scalpers...

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2014 12:13 PM

$25 plus $6.30 service fee

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2014 12:14 PM

12:09 i got in for a second and it looked like they were $25, before fees and all that.

Well, that was annoying. I refreshed like crazy and pasted the pw the second the presale went live and still missed out. I know one person who snagged 2. Assuming only a handful of tix were released, so there's always tomorrow. Eff the person who put them on Stubhub.

12:15 and 12:17 - the dropdown to select the number of tickets I wanted showed up for me too a few minutes ago. I tried to checkout and said that General Admission had been exceeded.

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2014 12:19 PM

Sometimes people abandon their carts or their card doesn't go through so a tiny amount of tix become available for a sec or two. They're probably not adding anymore to the presale.

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2014 12:22 PM

how many tickets were there? 20? what the fuck.

At stubhub, someone's selling it $221 per ticket.

just saw the fucking dropdown again but it refused to give me any

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2014 12:23 PM

See update above in post, but note a few things:

1) Ticketweb is dumb and still says "not on sale yet. The way they work is the presale pops up when it goes on sale and then disappears after it is sold out. I was surprised by this and confused myself. I emailed them multiple times this morning asking why there was no mention of the presale on the Ticketweb link. They assured me it would be there at noon and it was (or shortly after for some).

2) We had a very small percentage of the tickets in the presale. Most of the tickets go on sale noon Friday.

3) The demand was WAY BIGGER than how many tickets were in the presale, so a lot of people didn't even see the presale happen. Some saw it pop up at 12:03 or 12:04. Most people who tried did not get tickets, but tomorrow you will have a way better chance.

4) At least one person on Twitter confirms getting tickets and Webster Hall confirmed to me that the presale sold out almost instantly.

sorry, we know it's frustrating! We were just psyched to be able to host a presale and are not trying to screw anyone over!

Posted by BrooklynVegan | April 24, 2014 12:24 PM

I clicked on the link in this article at 11:50. Started refreshing at 11:58. A form to enter the password appeared at noon. I entered it. I was then able to add 2 tickets to my basket. After several failed attempts to check out (my own fault due to a recent move/uncertainy of what address I had associated with my CC), it went through (even with the right street address and wrong city/zip). TicketFast tickets printed.

Don't understand why anyone else had trouble.

For sure! You know I should be leaving soon for work, but honestly? I think I'll stay home too. I hope I can get tickets before the summer ends, I will certainly write many letters and packages to industry friends.
