After teasing it last week on Facebook, Portugal. The Man will play a “secret” Larimer Lounge show tonight. The problem, tickets are already sold out, but there are two bits of good news for fans of the Alaskan rock band.
1) There are at least a few people selling tickets to the Larimer Lounge show on Craig’s List. One person in particular is selling two tickets for $100 ($50) each, which is a bit more than a 50 percent markup from the original $20 price, but still not a bad deal.
2) Tickets to the Portugal. The Man’s Red Rocks show with Grouplove on Aug. 21 are not sold out. Those tickets are selling for $35-$42. It’s not nearly as intimate, but at least you’ll get to see them, and for a cheaper price.
The Larimer Lounge show is a unique chance to see a band that typically sells out Ogden Theatre shows, and draws a big enough crowd to co-headline Red Rocks. Then again, Red Rocks is Red Rocks.
Anyway, it’s decision time, Denver.
