Got my Beastie tix as well, but only after I let it sit and sit and finally hit refresh. Thankfully my tickets stayed in the system. I haven't seen them in 15 years, since Lollapalooza 1994. Hope it doesn't suck, LOL.

SOLD OUT.
WTF? I had two in my basket - actually got to that window - then it gave me an error message. I printed the screen. Think that counts?

pretty sure it won't.  unless you got a confirmation e-mail that your order went through, i'd assume that you didn't get tickets.  maybe check your bank/credit card to see if you were charged... if nothing there, then you're outta luck.  hopefully you were able to snag one after the initial onslaught.

I thought he worked at Merriweather?

i'm pretty sure sonick has a semi-regular gig at RHL, and does merriweather on-call/when needed... and both gigs are secondary, he has a respectable day job.

I'm good now, too. Thanks folks.
Sunshine, MPP is 3 hours from me on a weekday, otherwise, I'd love to see NIN/Jane. Plus, lawn seating is not my first preference to see a show; esp. after such a drive.
I'd prefer seeing BB at 930 but RHL will work just fine. Either way, thanks, Seth and I'm sure B'more thanks you too for spoiling them as of late. :)

1) I only recognize one name in the bottom half but yes, the top half is well worth traveling for, IMO.


2) A couple acts pulled out of the BK one a couple weeks ago with little notice (Merzbow is a huge gaping pussy and is afraid of swine flu) so I guess they're trying to cover their asses although that line does sound awkward.



3) It made me chuckle but I still think Aids Wolf trumps everything else I've heard.

Edit: and The Seal Cub Clubbing Club is a close 2nd.

maybe for you, but i'm canadian.  that band name is the equivalent for me of "saturday night cruising" or "the hometown team boosters".

Trashcan Sinatras @ RNRH

PASS

I'm a big fan of their early work, but their show at the club in 2004 was a total snoozefest....  Very little of their upbeat early material and a total fanboy show.  Lots of requests for obscure material.

well that sucks because NYC was a ton of their early stuff. It was really awesome! Im definitely seeing them again although nothing will compare when i saw them play with radiohead.

I know nothing about the Weakerthans but have seen both the Horrors and Crocodiles in the last two months so I'm going with the Weakerthans.


But I did find both bands impressive (wish Crocodiles relied a little less on pre-recorded tracks, though).

Van Morrison
Performing "Astral Weeks" and his classic hits
August 6 & 7
D.A.R. Constitution Hall

On sale Monday, June 22 at Noon
Woo hoo! Thank you for posting this! Too bad it's the D.A.R., but I'll take it. Any word on pre-sales?

American Express presale began about 45 minutes ago, and lasts through Sunday evening at 10pm.

thanks for the heads up.  got 2 "cheap" seats-- $228.50, which is totally worth the opportunity to hear astral weeks live.  yay!

It would be really nice if an admin could make one of these "Just Announced Commentary" threads sticky so that's it's always located on the front page just under the "Just Announced" thread.

Also, do admins have the capability to move posts from one thread to another?
