Wow. The screen had cut off your "Just kidding" remark, had to scroll down to see it.

Cold. Fucking cold.

When will this place ever sell out a show?  It looks as though they are pricing the ticket at the level scalpers would for 9:30 shows, even w/o any openers announced for a lot of their major acts. MJB for $100+ (no opener), John Legend for $80 (no opener), Bush+Chevelle (lol) for $50. There just is no appeal to me whatsoever.

I cant see this place succeeding in the short term, but I fear for the time when big acts are pulled every now and then from venues like 9:30 to FSS for a higher payout.

Until they have relevant acts that aren't crappy alternative bands from the 90's or washed up R+B acts, the place will never sell out.

It's going to take some indie darling act that gets sucked away from DAR to the Fillmore to sell it out.

for the opening night MJB show i'm wondering what percentage of the crowd is the paying public, vs. friends of Leggett, members of MoCo council, LN croonies, etc.

Quite surprised Trey sold out, but that's good news. Didn't sell out the 930 the last time he was there until a day or two before the show and then the place was empty due to the blizzard.

Because you probably can still get tickets via their "secondary market".

they got a $4.5 million dollar hand-out from the county.  they don't have to worry about filling the place.

the prices they are charging for tickets are very high but evidently its not keeping people away.. trey sold out and his price was about what phish charges..Trey's price was high. I'm still wondering how many tickets are they selling.. is it 1200 or 2000?

i think the Fillmore is tapping into a new market out there in MOntgomery County.. people who don't want to come into DC and are looking forward to what they see as a "low hassle/no danger" opportunity to see concerts in a small venue... other than the Fillmore what do they have? Merriwether is far, the Strathmore is for classical music or something...
