I could not get tickets to the hitRECord show Sept 6 because they sold out in about 5 minutes. Either there are people more insane then myself out there and really wanted to go, or there are a bunch of scalpers buying all the tickets. I am going with the latter. Remember waiting in the Hecht’s parking lot for the doors to open so we could run in line and buy tickets at 6am? Remember how fun that was and how not annoying to sit and wait for an internet page to load and how not anger inducing it was?!?!?! If it was sold out you knew it was because someone either called in or stood in line and that person in line before you got the last tickets that were physically there in the hands of the poor person working Hecht’s guest services who could really care less about Tibetan Freedom Concerts and my personal obsession with Radiohead and Pearl Jam. Also, those tickets were $60 for a two day festival, which was an insane amount of money to me at the age of 15. Now a concert ticket to see just Pearl Jam costs more than that.
Also, scalpers, Joseph Gordon-Levitt does not approve of your scalping:
