Nothing much to post about, but I haven't posted in awhile so I figured it was time to post something. I am crazily excited for the Flight of the Conchords' show in Toronto this coming April! Interestingly, I tried to get tickets for my sister and her friends after the presale (I got mine during the presale...lucky!) and they were sold out...but tickets were available on Ticketmaster's "TicketsNow" site. To me this site is just, as others have deemed it, legal scalping. My tickets were $49.50 a piece...why are the same tickets more than double the face value?
TicketsNow's answer is that once a ticket goes onsale and is being resold, its market value increases. Okay, I get that...but come on! What's the point on selling them at the face value price at all when people will just buy them all up and sell them on the sister site to make themselves and Ticketmaster a nice profit?
I say boo. To cheer myself up, I've become infatuated with Flight of the Conchord's "Hurt Feelings".
