The Low Ticket Warning thread
« on: August 18, 2011, 03:40:00 pm »
on its FB page (http://www.facebook.com/930club), the club announces when a show is close to selling out.  i think that is a really valuable service.  however, not everyone is on FB and the announcements are quickly buried amidst a hundred posts about "TEH KAIZER CHEIFS!!!1" and announcements of every single 930/IMP/MPP event.

so here's a thread where the warnings can be re-posted if you happen to come across one.  ideally whoever posts the warnings on the club's FB page can also copy the warning to this thread (thanks!).

first warning: The Hold Steady is about to sell out.  only 2 tickets left a few minutes ago.

How'd you know the exact amount that was left?

I feel compelled to reveal the big secret.  "Sweetcell" is an anagram of "Seth Hurwitz."  Did you ever read/see "Fight Club?"

i tried putting 3 tickets in my cart, "quntity not available".  tried putting in 2, bingo.  i was bored.

They tweet the warnings, too.

yup, but again they're mixed in with replies to fans, new show announcements, contests, etc... my idea here is to create a single place to look instead of having to go through a haystack.

I can't believe that Smashing Pumpkins show sold out so fast.  I mean, I kinda knew it would but... really?  And I'm a huge SP fan from Gish - Siamese Dream and i just couldn't get excited about it.  I know i'd get to the show and just be bummed that i was watching a fake lineup.  lame!
