City Paper is not for tourists
Speaking of internet ticket jam-ups: Tickets for the August 15 Merriweather Post Pavillion/Pavilion date on Phish’s reunion tour, the only tour stop in this market, go on sale tomorrow at 11 a.m. All shows on the tour are selling out immediately.
So what kind of folks will be pounding away on their keyboards come sale time?
Well, here’s an ad that appeared on the Washington, DC Craigslist site on Dec. 19, 2008 (PostingID: 964346143), from a guy who scored, so to speak, some passes to Phish’s March 8 show at Hampton Coliseum, during the last Web sale:
Me – Holder of 2 extra Phish Tickets for Sunday Hampton You – Attractive Female 18-30I’m looking for the sweetest trade of all – ANAL – that is right – good old-fashioned anal sex for 2 Phish Tickets. We meet, we have anal and you get 2 hard copy lottery tix for Phish – easy, simple and everyone wins – I bust a nut in your a$$ and you get to go to the show.
If your interested please reply with a pic and I will be happy to send you my confirmation letter with Phish as proof.
God only knows what sorta bartering this dude would go for if he got his hands on a pair of Easter Egg Roll tickets.
