Coachella Bound
08-31-2011, 01:45 PM
guess this thread needs some attention now that Spookfest is a no go.

Costumes will be in full effect. Coming w/ a swarm of boardies. This is the show of the year for me

aaronbk
08-31-2011, 01:53 PM
this will be a great chance for me to meet some of you. i have only met like three boardies. although i was standing near a large group of boardies at leftfeilds set this year.

Officially purchased! I am so excited that I get the chills every time I think about it. I would love to plan a spot to meet-up for drinks prior or a recognizable way for those interested in meeting up with the bulk of the group because a large chunk of us will be together anyway!

Also, I purchsed GhostShip tickets because I think it will be the perfect Post-Shpongle happening. The sun will be rising shortly after and then thus completes the most perfect Halloween to date.

As for Jerri Blank, I don't think that's something people want to see (or that I want to embody) after taking copious amounts of hallucinogenic drugs...
I was thinking of being some bat spirit thing. The idea of having wings with gliding capacity really excites me.

Salah, I am just going to go ahead and plant the seed right now and say... I wouldn't mind ducking out a liiiiiiittle bit early from Shpongle. I know I'll enjoy more the music and the adventuring around Treasure Island. Either way, it goes til 4, so we will have time!

Just to be clear, she's talking about Ghost Ship ending at 4. Shpongle will end at midnight (maybe a tiny bit before) -- a lot of people rely on BART to get to shows at the Fox Theater, so their shows end pretty early.

Oh haysus, I see.
Well damn, I suppose I'll need to find something to do with myself.

After Amon I was still frying balls and my chommies and I ended up getting literally cornered by crackheads, witnessing a high speed car chase, and trying to elude the two young thizzed out Salinas homies who wanted to know "What was good".
Mind you this was outside the Warfield, but I'd prefer to not have a repeat of this.

Were you at Coachella???

greghead
10-15-2011, 01:43 AM
Yes, but opted out of seeing Shpongle in favor of something else. My knowledge of this musical entity is limited to a few albums I downloaded back in 08, albums I have only poked at intermittently since. I know virtually nothing. I do, however, love to dance and party, so . . .

Shpongletron is a dj set with a stage/light setup. It could be fun! Won't be anything like this live set.

Coachella Bound
10-15-2011, 10:42 AM
the Shpongletron is great, but its still just Simon and his hat. The Coachella set exceeded the second time I caught it this year, but I credit that to it being much longer the second time around. Not always a good thing when an artist is just trying to stretch his hits out..... The only thing I can really compare the live set to is Cirque de Soleil on DMT. Not to mention, the set up and structure of it represents that of some larger Pink Floyd type theatrics. I feel truly honored to be a part of this first west coast appearance.

Obligatory voice of cynicism: Shpongletron is nothing special. Abysmal mixing, uninspired psy-trance track selection, pretty flashing lights. It's only "okay" to dance and party to. ONLY OKAY.

Hey there,

I just accidentally purchased Mezzanine tickets for the Oakland Shpongle show. Thought I was getting GA floor tickets.

Does anyone know about the Mezzanine? Is it as good as the floor, or are you actually sitting in your seat?

The mezzanine level is seated, I mean, you CAN stand but it would mostly depend on whether the people around you are also standing, or if they're sitting and yelling at you to sit down. :) You can't loiter in the aisles, either.


For Ghost Ship, I think we'll be okay, but I'm very in favor of just taking a cab from the Fox.

10-19-2011, 04:32 PM
Well, our thought was that we'd take BART back to Sf and either catch the event shuttles (from Civic Center) or a cab... I'd want to know how often the shuttles are running. The event was kind of expensive, and we're already going to miss half of it due to going to Shpongle. So, I'd rather split a really expensive cab 3-4 ways (I'm thinking it would end up being like $10-15 each?) than miss over an hour of it dicking around with BART and shuttles. Taking a cab from SF is not going to be that much less expensive than just taking a cab from Oakland.

I'm not really sure how much the cab would cost... I've taken a cab from Emeryville to Civic Center, once, during rush hour and it was like $80. I have to imagine that a cab from Oakland to TI late at night couldn't be more than like $50? I was assuming maybe $30-40?

Okay, here's a crazy idea, if anyone's wiling to help us out.

I have these two tickets for the mezzanie. We can get into the venue, just not into GA. If someone with a GA ticket trades us once they've already gotten in, we could get into GA! Would anyone be as kind as to help us with this?

I know it's kind of a weird request but we would be so grateful and would make sure to bring you lots of goodies and good vibes! We're just two kids who wan to be able to have room to dance :)

some nights you have to show your GA ticket to get a wristband, then you have to show both the wristband *and* the ticket each time you enter the floor. makes it a little more tricky.

gabrielkyne
10-19-2011, 08:12 PM
Argh! Well, perhaps someone is interested in trying, just to see if we can make it work? We would go in and give your tickets back to you right when we got into GA, as we're not interested in leaving to go to the bar or anything.

And thanks for the tip, shaker. Really hating myself for not grooming over my ticketmaster confirmation before clicking "complete".

some venue's hole-punch your ticket so that you can't give it to someone to do what you want to do gabe... and i think that happened at the fox bassnectar show.

how does the GA work at the fox? i live in los angeles and when i go to the wiltern for shows you need to show your ga ticket every time, but if you get there early enough you can exchange it for a wristband to the pit/first tier of the GA standing which they block off at a certain point so it's not too crowded - is the fox like this or is it just one big section of GA?

also, if you have print at home tix, im thinking you can just print out extra copies for people in mezzanine and give them to them once they use their mezzanine tix to get in the venue so they can use the copies to get into GA..thoughts on this?


Unfortunately I couldn't get the time off from work to make it to this so I have 4 tickets for sale :(

i might need an extra ticket - is it GA? I'm sending you a pm as well..

chiapet
10-21-2011, 10:29 AM
At the Fox, the entire GA section is open - you can go wherever you like on that level as long as there is space. They usually do wristbands for the entire GA level, and sometimes you have to show your ticket as well as your wristband to get back in. Never thought of printing extras (I always go for hard tickets), that might work since only scan the ticket at the door. Or course you'd have to trust the person not to use your ticket at the door. :)

shakermaker113
10-21-2011, 11:17 AM
less packed shows they make you show a ticket and don't bother with wristbands.

printing multiple copies would probably work, come to think of it. use your balcony tickets to get through the door, then inside switch to your printed extras to get a GA wristband. pretty clever.

We left Ghost Ship a few minutes before 4 and the crowd had thinned out but I doubt it got shut down right at 4 as scheduled. We didn't make it off the island until closer to 5 and there were still people by the venue.

It was.. interesting. I'm not really sure what to make of it. :) Liked the Pink Mammoth area a lot (though it was so very crowded most of the night). The Space Cowboys section I thought was aesthetically the nicest but didn't care for the music as much. There was a lot more to do than I'd expected (meaning a LOT of stages).
