    Default Beastie Boys at the Wiltern

    So since I got a myspace bulletin from Goldenvoice with the presale info for this show and decided I'd hop on it this morning, figuring that someone else on the board might want them, or possibly someone with too much money on their hands a few weeks from now.

    But I was stunned to find that the presale seemed to be limited to the mezzanine and loge sections, and went into fucking shock, not know what to do. I took mezzanine. Are these the least desirable seats in the house or the most or what?

    Really? I reloaded it like a dozen different times, getting more and more out of sorts, and only LOGE and MEZZ came up.

    Yeah, it's an instrumental show for a band that's been around since the eighties--there's gotta be some rich bastards who want to sit and have a good view and crap, right?

    God I hope so. I own way too many concert tickets right now.

    the show wont be fully instrumental. it just means they are playing their instruments...and will be doing more instrumental stuff from the new cd and old tunes like In 3s, POW, Groove Holmes, while doing fresh new versions of their rap songs with their instruments like, Jimmy James, Do It, So Whatcha Want...

    Hmm... well either way there had better be (a) enough people who were original Beasties fans who're now too old to want to stand for the whole show and/or (b) just a ridiculous demand for this show. It is kinda a special show, right? Smaller venue than the others on this tour, and they referred to it as a "gala" I think. Anyone know what that's about?

    Just saw that. That's weird. Unless he had them shipped ground, which you can't hardly do as a scalper, he's not making more than 25 dollars tops between both tickets.

    Jesus Christ, I can't believe people tolerate these kind of profit margins. Why don't I have any decent drug connections, I'd make this fucking inheritance last for three years.

    I've seen both and they're both worthwhile. See you on the floor at the Wiltern.

    Wait, so the Greek is going to have more classics and the Wiltern is going to have more instrumental?

    I've never seen the Beastie Boys, but I'd much rather see the classics.

    Personally, the fact that the Wiltern is that much smaller is all I need to make me happy. But this isn't about me.

    tried for loge tix on the regular onsale, but nothing came up...i just don't enjoy being in ga for shows anymore, especially at a show like this where they want everyone to come dreesed to the nine's. a suit in a ga pit just doesn't sound fun to me. i guess i will just have to enjoy my 3rd row greek seats this time around.

    When Beasties play their regular shows... do they at least pull out the instruments for Heart Attack Man?
