News: All tickets must go! Promoters hope you like these cheap seatsBy Ricardo Baca | September 17th, 2009 | No Comments »
Tickets to the Slim Cessna’s Auto Club’s New Year’s Eve show at the Bluebird Theater are among those going at basement prices. Reverb file photo by Joe McCabe.
It’s not that promoters are giving away concert tickets. Rather they’re trying to sell them at bargain rates — so they don’t have to give them away/paper their houses.
Reverb just got an email from the folks at AEG Live today, and they’re spreading the word about a couple bargain holiday shows. The first 50 tickets to Slim Cessna’s Auto Club’s upcoming Bluebird Theater holiday shows (with Paper Bird on Dec. 30 and Munly and the Lupercalians on Dec. 31) are on sale now at ticketmaster.com for $10. A couple Halloween shows are also on sale — including Nashville Pussy at the Bluebird Theater (first 150 tickets are on sale for $5 at Ticketmaster) and Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit at the Larimer Lounge (first 50 tickets for $10 via bigmarkstickets.com).
“I just want to make sure they sell out,” said Scott Campbell, owner of the Larimer Lounge and talent buyer at the Bluebird. “With the economy and the way things are right now, and with these being special events, it feels right to offer these special prices.”
