    Does anybody know if you can get tickets without all the rape fees from the HOB box office? $22 = $37+ after fees, fuck that. I'm not going if I can't get tickets there for cheaper, if I can I'll go.

    I'm going for sure! All ages! And especially after their Coachella set being overcrowded and in the broad daylight -- but still sounding awesome -- which just left me wanting more.

    I know for sure that you can get tickets at the actual box office without some or all of the fees, my friend does it all the time, but I don't know exactly how much less it is. Definitely worth doing if you aren't too far away.


    edit - shit, this is a pretty expensive one. I'll see how my funds are doing around then...

    We should all try to meet up. Also my GF's brother told me if you eat there before the show they give you a "cut in line pass".

    I saw The XX at CMJ last year and they were underwhelming. Their music doesn't translate to a live show.

    I really liked XX before Coachella, but not so much after Coachella. They need to play their songs at normal speed, or faster. NOT slower.

    I didn't think the songs sounded too slow -- sounded great to me.

    and

    AWWW Amy you make me wish I had actually attampted to meet some boardies.
    Soon you will become an integral part of BORG. Resistance is futile.

    Seriously, it's so much fun recognizing people on the Polo Field and having impromptu meet-ups with board friends. YOU'LL SEE.

    If anybody has an extra ticket, I may be interested in it. I'm not going to ask for the night off though since I don't have a ticket, but if I happen to be off I want to go. I don't think I'll know that for a week though.

    Yeah that outro is one of the most amazing things i've ever seen. When I first saw it at Coachella I almost died.

    Their show at the HOB last night was alright. The sound wasn't loud enough to me for some reason. The stage lightning was nice though. It's hard to say which I preferred, this or their Coachella set, both very different experiences.

    Stars was the best thing that whole night. Great backdrop for it. The thunder towards the end of the song literally shook the place. It was amazing.

    I am extremely anticipatory of the Palladium show in September. I earlier had fears that they might be boring live, but every I read seems to quell that thought.

    Can't believe the Palladium show is tomorrow... Has anyone seen set times? I checked palladium's twitter and didn't see anything listed. I know they usually post them the day before or around then.

    No set times yet! Annoying. And I'm not sure if 7:30 is merely doors of if that's when the first opener goes on.

    Well Palladium's facebook says the show is going to run until 11:00pm so I think that would put The XX on at 9:30. Idk I'm not planning on getting there until 8:00-8:30.
