If you are not here in the next half hour, don't waste your time.— Black Cat (@BlackCatDC) October 21, 2014
Turns out it only takes 90 minutes for enough Foo Fighters fans to show up and sell out the venue’s mainstage. (Each person is allowed two tickets, so only the first 350 or so people in line will get them.)
UPDATE: If you are not in line now, no chance.— Black Cat (@BlackCatDC) October 21, 2014
