Did anyone go to M.I.A's show on Monday at the Echoplex? If so, how hard was it to get tix?
I'm in San Diego and want to drive up to catch the show, but I don't know if I have a chance at scoring some tix. Could someone let me know if they went to Monday's show?
Thanks!

SOLD OUT, both of them. How hard is it to check ticketweb?

Not hard. I thought they only sold them the night of the show at the box office.

The tickets 'sold out' online. But I, and at least 50 other people got their tickets at the door. One of them being a guy that drove out from San Diego. My advice if you're trying to go to tomorrow's show is to get there EARLY like.. at least 3 hours in advance

There are still some postings on craigslist (at reasonable prices) if you don't want to chance it in the ticket line (which was very very long last night). She got on stage last night at 10:30 and played over an hour set. A lot of new stuff (which is really f_cking good) + a handful of songs from her previous album. I think she has sealed the deal for me to get my vegoose tickets!

Then go do that and stop asking.

Man, did somebody piss in Supre's cheerios this morning?

Thanks PrettyRagdoll for the info. I've got some friends here in LA that were wondering how early they'd have to show up to get in on the day-of tickets. What time did you arrive?

Sorry this is late, but I got there at 5 and there were only 4 people in front of me. By 5:30 there was a line that was starting to come out of the alley

Ok. There is something I REALLY dont get here...
Why M.I.A. has so much indie cred!? Seriously?
I have tried listening to her on multiple occasions, and I cant stand any of her shit. Its terrible. It sounds like nothing more than typical urban gansta hiphop... with a girl.
Id rather listen to Rihanna than her.

Blasphemy!!

I guess I can understand people not liking it if they're not into that style of music. Personally I found the production on the first record to be absolutely banging ("10 Dolla" is definitely my fave). The vocals are cool enough to not get in the way and MIA's accent is cool.

Well if you actually sat down and decided to take the time to actually LISTEN to her you'd realize she is not anything like a typical urban gangsta. From who she is, to the stuff she raps about, and the fact she's a woman making hip-hop who isn't too oversexualized all equate to why she's so unique, and therefore loved.

She's from Hounslow - You can't get more urban than that, trust me. It's where i went to school.

I have. On many occasions (as I said) and in many different moods. I just can't see how she is that unique though... lyrics like this reaffirms my belief her lyrics are nothing special...

"10 Dollar"

China girl was a little girl
From a town
That's all you need to know

Lolita was a man-eater
Clocked him like a taxi meter

Fuck gold, she was a platinum digger
Shakin-ass making moves on a mover

Visa, then a plane ride to ya
Peace out. she'll kill you like uma

She skipped away to the shop
She found she didn't have enough

She clocked him looking right at her
And sucked on a lollipop.

She skipped away to the shop
She found she didn't have enough

She clocked him looking right at her
And sucked on a lollipop.

China girl grew up to be a big girl
Had her sights set on a bigger world

Dial-a-bride from sri lanka
Found herself a yorkshire banker

Need a visa? got wth a geezer
Need some money?
Paid him with her knees up
Year later, started to ease up
Got her own way, shouted out 'see ya'

She skipped away to the shop
She found she didn't have enough

She clocked him looking right at her
And sucked on a lollipop.

She skipped away to the shop

And sucked on a lollipop.

Yea, what can i get for 10 dollar?
Anything you want. [8x]

And wow... now THIS is what I call talent...
