FUCK SCALPERS

Post by Robert Paulson » Thu Nov 07, 2013 7:48 pm

So I want to see the reunion show for one of my favorite bands of all time Failure. The tickets went on pre-sale at 8 this morning. And the fuck if it isn't sold out in less than 10 minutes. And to add insult to injury, it's already being scalped for $250. The show cost $20 and is in the El Rey in LA, which is not a huge venue or anything, so I figured it would sell out, but 10 minutes? and seriously $250? It's not like they're the fucking Stones giving it one more tour. Or Britney Spears singing with her vagina on stage. Come the fuck on.

If you don't know who they are here's their song "Stuck on You"

you might recall that song from back in the 90s

"Another Space Song"

"The Nurse Who Loved Me"

There are tons of shows around here that are great. It's not like Mississippi where if you don't live by New Orleans or Memphis you're boned. The worst that happens is the band plays in LA and you have to drive up.

And if you're depressed about music check out these guys, they're both San Diego bands:

I don't even think location plays a role...I can't even think of a band right now I'd want to hear play in my own backyard for free.

Your favorite band is Failure, my favorite bands are failures.
