    Exclamation Mars Volta Tix?

    I know that everyone on this board seems to think that the Mars Volta live show sucks, but surprise surprise, both the LA and the Ventura shows are sold out. I would REALLY like to get my hands on some tickets, preferrably for the Ventura show, but I'll take LA. The tickets on ebay are selling for ridiculous prices, (prices I can't afford since I've bought my coachella tix). Is anybody out there looking to sell their tickets for a somewhat reasonable price??? PLEASE?

    No. You should've bought your tickets before the sold-out.

    That's funny, because I always thought they were much better live than on record, but I've only seen them once and that was years ago. What about their performance makes them bad?

    The Mars Volta would have been cool when I saw them except that my back hurt and my nose wouldn't stop running because I was sick and I didn't have any Kleenex. So I had to suffer through 2+ hours that I would have been into normally.

    The opening was killer though. Fistful of Dollars theme to Drunkship, which included Cedric doing salsa moves and slither like a snake on his stomach and picking up the mic stand in his mouth while slithering (which I admit I tried to do immediately when I got home and couldn't. I tried the next morning too. No dice.)

    Duh. Unfortunately, I had to work until 1pm that day, so when I got home, they were gone. If it were a bigger priority (for example, Coachella), I would have sold my firstborn child for a chance to go. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't like to still luck out and get some tickets.

    I suppose they could be seen that way. When I saw them at All Tomorrow's Parties a while back they mostly played to their (at the time) one album and EP. They didn't seem like a jam band thought, more like slight alterations and segways from their songs. Reminded me of live Led Zeppelin with a punk overtone. Oh, and Cedric Bixler has a great voice. I just don't dig lyrics that make little to no sense and have to be "decoded".

    People don't like it when talented musicians play something that isn't immediately recognizable from the album.

    I liked them when they opened for Pixies, but their albums bore me.

    They reminded me of Led Zeppelin live in terms of the jamming.

    That was a very good show. I missed the Thrills, but I was okay with that.

    How were the pixies live anyway? Love the music but never really thought about checking one of their shows out.

    Not everyone can get the codes.

    And the ticket brokers seem to be the first to receive them.

    That was my 3rd of 5 Pixies concerts. If that's any indication.

    But, they are fantastic. Completely live up to their name, and some songs (UMass, Rock Music) sound even better live.

    again, your posts make absolutely no sense. you seem to post just for the sake of posting.

    i have no life? hellooo, look at your post count.

    you routinely get embarassed every time you get into an argument on these boards. instead of admitting how stupid you are, you simply change the subject.

    you are a scalper. it's been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.

    you know what? you're like George W. Bush, so out of touch with reality that you think you can say anything you want without anyone holding you accountable.

    how can you say you're not a scalper? everyone has seen your ebay account. you sell tickets for above face value. you are a scalper. you can admit it to yourself, it's ok. repeat after me: "I am a scalper." keep repeating that to yourself 200 times a day for a week. maybe then you'll finally get it.

    ANYWAYS... I don't care if they are slightly above face value, I just don't know that I need to hand over nearly two hundred dollars for my boyfriend and I to see them. In a perfect world, I would have been able to purchase presale tickets and/or I would have been home from work in time to buy tickets before they sold out. But as it is, I thought I would just post this thread, in case I get lucky.
