View Full Version : Glasshouse

Edit: I just bought tickets on Saturday so I'm tempted to close this thread. Is there anyone else who still seriously wants to send me money?


3-Day pass - $285
Onsite camping pass - $57


Pretty much how it works:

A) You tell me the number of tickets you want
Ba) You send me cash for that amount
Bb) You send me a US Postal Money Order for that amount, which I will then need to cash first
C) I drive out to a venue called the Glasshouse in Pomona (about an hour away) and I buy the tickets for you, which are usually at a much cheaper price than you can get on ticketmaster
D) I send your tickets in the mail to you. If you want FedEx or registered mail, you pay for it. If it's just a normal 41 cent stamp, I'll pay for it.
E) The End.

Edit: paypal kind of fucked me up last year because i can only take out something like $1000/mo from the account. and with almost $300 3-day passes, that added up quickly. in order for me to accommodate the most people as possible (and thereby not making me make multiple trips), i'm going to allow only cash (USD) and US postal money order. those in the uk...you're gonna have to get me dollars somehow.

also, if they do the free subscription to SPIN again this year, i will make sure to get all of your email addresses to sign you up, if you so desire.


Current list:


lowfront
seachanges
SheriNOIR
altaz 1 + 1 camping
JoshC
durrrrde 3
RedThom



If you are on this list, please tell me how many 3-day passes you want and how many camping passes you want.

If you do not want to be on this list anymore, please tell me.

Thanks.

I also am in despite not fully divining your meaning, providing you're okay with it. I'm guessing tickets with no BS Ticketmaster fees. Am I right?

Highly recommended, she's a diamond!

SheriNOIR
01-21-2008, 03:20 AM
P.S when are you heading out Tessa? Will be needing you myself again and need to round up the cash from my friends.
Thanks,

Assuming no presale, I will very likely be in for two. I'll PM you with details after the lineup announcement, whence I expect we'll know about a presale if one is going to take place.

My name is Tom.

Hi,

Would you be willing to do this for someone in the UK? And what would be the best way to pay, as I am not sure if I can do a Money Order.

faxman75
01-21-2008, 04:24 AM
Hello Tessa, my name is Mark and I am interested in 1 ticket.
Is it money order only, or will you take pay pal as well? :) Either way count me in!

sacleonard
01-21-2008, 06:59 AM
Assuming no pre-sale, I would be interested. I remember reading your offer from last year, so this would be appreciated.

i'm guessing no paypal since she would have to eat the fees they charge, which at close to $300 could be quite a bit.

SheriNOIR
01-21-2008, 07:50 AM
if you put the money through paypal as a 'gift' then no charges. or something like that..

Hi Tessa! If there's no discount presale, please count me in for 2 (maybe 3).

Thanks,

Derekx
01-21-2008, 08:23 AM
Nice! I had no idea they sold them there. I'll probably head out the day they go on sale.

JustSteve
01-21-2008, 08:29 AM
you should wait for an announcement or call glasshouse records before heading there just to make sure. i think they went on sale there a bit after the ticketmaster onsale last year.

Gotcha. If that's the case I will just mail the money order :)

I will need 2 three day passes (assumming no pre-sale).

Courtney
01-21-2008, 08:54 AM
If there's no discounted presale, I'll definitely take you up on this offer Tessa.

P.S. This rules.

P.P.S. You're really nice.

P.P.P.S. I really wish there was a discounted presale.

sonofhal
01-21-2008, 08:57 AM
If there is no posting of tickets to the UK, I will definitely take you up on this offer too. Is there a max you can buy in person? (I'll need 8 - not risking will call again)

01-21-2008, 09:57 AM
Tessa, I second everything Courtney said and if I could be added to the list I'd love you forever.

soooo glad i live 10 mins away from the glasshouse.

Tessa,

Please add me to the list, for 1x 3 day pass and a camping ticket.

Thanks.

Hope they go on sale on Friday, the same as Ticketmaster.

tessalasset
01-21-2008, 04:35 PM
They're from a different allocation than the ticketmaster tickets. Ticketmaster could sell out and Glasshouse tickets could still be available (and vice versa).

joshc
01-21-2008, 06:17 PM
Still holding my breath for a last-minute presale, but if that doesn't happen I'd probably be interested.

01-21-2008, 06:25 PM
Tessa, I am in.

EDIT: I had a typo and also I hit Post Quick Reply too early. What I meant to write was:

Tessa, I am the Walrus. Also I am not in for the purchase of tickets at the Glasshouse but thank you for the kind offer.

So we know if the glasshouse is definite again this year?

Should we send you our money yet or shall we wait? :)

You rock tessa!

orbit

How much cheaper is usually to buy thru here than ticketmaster?

I know you save the tm fees, but I don't remember how much fee ticketmaster charged last year.

psychic friend
01-23-2008, 01:18 PM
3-Day passes and onsite camping tickets will be available for purchase at the Glasshouse in Pomona and Fingerprints in Long Beach for less than what you would pay through Ticketmaster. So If you live around there you got a choice.

GLASSHOUSE
Glass House Record Store and Box office (http://www.theglasshouse.us/v1/home.html) now located at 248 W 2nd St.
CASH ONLY - Must purchase IN PERSON
3-Day pass - $285
Onsite camping pass - $57

FINGERPRINTS
4612 E 2nd St, Long Beach, CA (http://www.fingerprintsmusic.com/)
CASH - Must purchase IN PERSON
3-Day pass - $285
Onsite camping pass - $57
(they will take credit cards at the store but tack on a $10 fee)

If this info changes I will update here.

8 ticket limit for 3-day passes and for onsite camping tickets.

I am told they will both be open for the on sale on friday.

orbit
01-23-2008, 03:03 PM
Awesome, thanks for the info!

Looks like there won't be presale then, so I'm in Tessa.

DHARMA2112
01-23-2008, 06:50 PM
There is a KROQ pre-sale. I'm sure you guys know this already tho.

tessalasset
01-23-2008, 06:59 PM
Yes

everyone make their decisions right now. I think the KROQ presale will be cheaper than TM. Look - KROQ 3 day pass is $249. Glasshouse 3-day pass is $285.

So basically, just go on the presale tomorrow, start to buy a 3-day pass, and when the subtotal comes up, check and see if its more than $285. If it is, don't buy. If it's not, buy.

Different case if you're going to be buying camping passes tho.

I am definitely going to go. I'm looking at Saturday the 9th or Saturday the 16th. (if it looks like it's gonna sell out earlier than that, I'll change it to Saturday Feb 2nd). So on Friday, I'll check in with everyone on the list and send my address to whomever wants it. Again, I accept cash or a US Postal money order. If you're doing money order, send it fast so I have time to cash it.

Glasshouse 3-day passes are $285 each.
Glasshouse camping passes are $57 each.


OH PS - Not that it makes a difference cause I'll be using cash, but I'll probably end up going to Fingerprints because its 10 miles closer. If traffic sucks going south I might change my mind and go to GH. It doesnt matter to you guys. I'm just thinking out loud.

So Starting Friday - if you havent bought presale, please come back in here and indicate how many 3-day and how many camping passes you want. I will PM you with my address and your total that you need to send me.

That is all.

keriann
01-23-2008, 08:34 PM
Dani do you know if the $10 fee to use credit cards at Fingerprints is per 3-day pass or total?

RedThom
01-23-2008, 08:37 PM
I'm new to this but is there a way I can hop in?

unseperatedtwin
01-23-2008, 08:47 PM
Will the Glasshouse be selling single-day tickets, if so how much? :]

Rilokiley420
01-23-2008, 10:28 PM
I LIVE TEN MINS AWAY FROM THE GLASSHOUSE! Can you buy just a one day pass or do they only sell the 3day pass??

tessalasset
01-24-2008, 12:17 AM
They only sell 3-day passes and camping passes. No single days.

Courtney
01-24-2008, 12:21 AM
Tessa I think instead of taking you up on your offer, I'm gonna do the presale so I can put it on my credit card and get airline mileage out of it. I'm a little nutso for mileage.

Thanks for offering to do this for people, though. Seriously, you rule.

kreutz2112
01-24-2008, 06:52 AM
There is another presale besides the KROQ one right...or is the email I got for the KROQ presale?

amyzzz
01-24-2008, 07:30 AM
I got an email from KROQ and an email from Goldenvoice, and they both have the same password, so I'm thinking it's only one presale.

01-24-2008, 11:03 AM
Wait... could you buy camping tickets this morning as well? I got my discounted pre sale 3 day passes.... but didnt see anything about camping

orbit
01-24-2008, 11:05 AM
This presale is only for 3 day pass tickets. Camping tickets will be available tomorrow in the regular sale.

I bought my ticket already, so I'll just need camping tickets. I PMed you the info, Tessa.

When you going Tessa? Want to make a trip out on saturday if you've collected some funds. I'm planning on going either way.

JorgeC
01-29-2008, 10:24 AM
fyi, i got mine this week and the tix look like they were printed on a 100 year old typewriter. mix of GA4 and GA5 (guess it doesn't matter as long as it gets you in right).

sctakeshi
01-29-2008, 10:34 PM
Okay, thanks. Put me down for one 3-day. I was planning on getting my ticket at the Glasshouse myself last Sunday on the way back from Palm Springs, but I had to come home earlier than expected and passed by Pomona before the record store opened.

As soon as I get your address I'll go get the PMO. Though I only just registered, I've been reading the forum since 2006 so I know your trustworthiness.

shakermaker113
01-29-2008, 11:41 PM
major kudos for Tessa for offering to do this for people. remind me to buy you a drink if we ever meet.

(I'm not in on this... I am just impressed you are doing this for people.)

GauchoGuy17
01-30-2008, 03:18 PM
Are we expecting that the Glasshouse will have tickets all the way through April like they did last year?

suprefan
01-30-2008, 04:09 PM
Maybe, maybe not. I think a reason for them having extra tickets last year was to curb the after market price of the 3 day passes, not to say they didnt have extras to begin with. At this rate of sales it shouldnt be a huge issue to possibly be able to get tickets the regular way and not have to goto the glasshouse unless its just for money saving purposes.

OreoRabbit
01-30-2008, 07:25 PM
so when are you going to pick them up? im pretty interested. i got mine last year from the glasshouse after they sold out. the drive would probably equal the savings if i went again.

sctakeshi
01-30-2008, 07:39 PM
Okay Tessa, I got your PM and got the money order today. I'll send it out tomorrow. Thanks again! I really appreciate this wonderful and generous offer C=

EDIT- Actually, can you put me down for 2 passes instead of one? I'll get another PMO tomorrow. THANKS!

tessalasset
01-31-2008, 10:06 AM
Roger that. I'll keep an eye out in the mail for your shizzz.

Oreo...depending on when I get everyone's money, I'll either go the weekend of Feb 9 or Feb 16. There are only about 3 or 4 people I'm buying tickets for, so hopefully I'll be able to hit up the 9th. If you for sure want me to buy tix for you, pm me with how many and I'll send you my address.

tessalasset
02-06-2008, 09:43 AM
Ok latest update:

My official day I'm going out is Saturday, February 16. So be sure to get your money in to me by then. I've already gotten one person's money, and I know of one more sending some today. Anyone else, let me know.

tessalasset
02-12-2008, 06:52 PM
