Yesterday (4/24), tickets for the American Football reunion show at NYC's Webster Hall (10/11) went on a BrooklynVegan presale, and as you may know they sold out instantly. People on social media, via email and in the comments were clearly upset and felt like we were trying to screw them over in part because the Ticketweb page was very confusing and only listed the presale with a place to put the password during the time the few tickets were on sale. Before and after the very quick presale, the Ticketweb page said tickets were not on sale yet. For what it's worth, we've since contacted Ticketweb to let them know we don't think their presale process was very clear. We share your frustration, but everyone should realize that if you didn't get a ticket yesterday it was only because they sold out to others before you had a chance, not due to any type of conspiracy.

However, like we said yesterday, MOST of the tickets for the show are actually going on sale during the general sale, which begins at this link today (4/25) at noon (EST). Hopefully it will be easier to get them this time, but act quick. Good luck!

As some people have noted, the tickets are already on StubHub for insane prices. Naturally people are assuming those were the tickets bought during presale. One person said he saw them for $300, another for $222, and others expressed frustration on the StubHub matter as well. At the moment, they're up for around $200. We encourage you to wait for the general sale today at noon, don't buy them on StubHub! (and if you did get tickets during the presale and immediately listed them on StubHub, F you!)!

PS, frustratingly, tickets for the Mineral reunion shows at Bowery Ballroom go on sale today at noon too.

UPDATE: As of 12:03 PM, American Football is SOLD OUT. Mineral is still not.

I'm glad I now know there's so much demand for this. Looking forward to scalping them off to some grown emo dweebs.

Is there a ticket limit today? I tried to buy 4 yesterday in the presale but a "ticket amount exceeded" warning popped up, even though the dropdown listed 1-4 tickets. Kind of worried that'll happen again today.

I got 4 tickets yesterday without trouble - minus the fact that the box was a few minutes late to appear. Can't wait

Reunion? Never even heard of 'em...

Not a single ticket sold on Stubhub. Just because a couple of people listed something at a ridiculous price, it doesn't mean there's a demand for it. If people buy these to sell thanks to your post, they will likely be eating those tickets.

those stub hub tickets are likely tix that weren't even purchased, that scalpers put up when it soldout knowing the public sale is today.

More importantly, what happened to all the tickets for the Phish show at CMAC?

I think scalpers who try to profit off of sad emo kids are even sadder than those emo kids will ever be.

I glanced at that picture first thing this morning, before my eyes were fully awake, and thought that the definitive lineup of Don Caballero had reunited and will be playing "What Burns Never Returns" in its entirety on a comprehensive US tour.

But nope, it's just some shitty e-MEH band that ripped off the cover of that great Don Cab album.

thank goodness I saw them in the 90s and could give a fuck about this or mineral. now boys life would be a different story.

The new people booking Webster Hall are absolute morons if they think Ticketweb is a good idea. Site cannot handle big onsales, plain and simple.

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2014 12:09 PM

Over 30 tickets already on stub hub.

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2014 12:12 PM

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2014 12:12 PM

it's painfully obvious they need to add a second third fourth and fifth date.

or just play MSG.

this is ridiculous

Got 2 for second show. Thank goodness.

guess who puts up tickets on StubHub? TICKETMASTER. If you don't think so, you're fooling yourselves. They're also the same company who will take blocks of tickets back off of StubHub if they're not selling and re-offer them on TM for cheaper.

Ticket gripes are a right of city passage. That's all you cuties have left.

^ hey coach why don't you worry about winning some games this season? you know that actually making the playoffs is more important than predicting it every preseason, right?

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2014 3:54 PM

Sometimes I have to put that whole damned city on my back. You think that's easy during the season?
