edit: it's not on their website tho, know when tickets go up, or how much?
New festival slated for downtown Las Vegas
APE certainly have the experience. Not sure they can book headliners anywhere Downtown and make money. There just aren't any venues that could hold more than 1,000 people besides Cashman Fields. Having it within Fremont is a possibility, but would require a lot of logistics. Within the Arts District is tough because of policing, parking and residential restrictions.
Since O'Sheas was knocked down they are going to put a giant ferris wheel in it's place including more shops, restaurants, etc. The best part is they are putting in a Brooklyn Bowl west!!
Holiday Havoc -The Shins, AWOLNATION, Passion Pit...use the link below to get 2-4-1 tickets at $17 each.
Those fees are pretty brutal. Still, a better deal if someone was holding out on buying tickets
Ticket Price US $17.00 x 2
Facility Charge US $4.00 x 2
Convenience Charg eUS $9.65 x 2
Wow!!! Talk about a deal!
I wonder if they'll honor the deal at the venue. If so, tickets would only end up being about 20 bucks.
I know it rains on the deal. But a single regular ticket comes out at $58.80
Full Price Ticket (Day of Show)
US $39.00 x 1
US $4.00 x 1
US $10.15 x 1
Order Processing Fee
I didn't see either of these mentioned:
1/25/13-Ben Folds Five at The Pearl
3/17/13-Muse at Mandalay Bay
I believe Dead Sara is opening at Mandalay for Muse, while Band of Skulls opens the LA show.
Jeff Bridges at Santa Fe Station on Fri, April 19th
I think that I'm going to try and score a Black Keys ticket at the door with a crisp 20 dollar bill - I will pay no more! The venue is too big for them, especially pulling back to back shows. Scalpers couldn't even give away tickets to the Arcade Fire, hopefully they have the same problem...
I believe both nights aren't sold out just the 2 day passes.
But I think the face value for the GA is $140 so I don't know if $20 will do it.
According to them it's almost completely sold out but who knows, that could just be a call to action.
Well, $20 might sound outrageous compared to the $140 ticket, but $140 is absolutely ridiculous! I'm going to roll down there and try. Was at the Killers last night and beers were $10 a piece - stupid!
Yo, i scored 3 tickets for 90 bucks last night - 30 bucks a ticket! I had to hustle a little bit, but we were able to work it out. Ticket price is a ridiculous $120 plus fees (I think). Anyways, they're helluv good. Definitely one of the hardest working bands out there. We went to the far side and we were able to walk all the way down to the very front pit and secure a spot, about 6th from the rail, without pushing. You can totally bring in a flask, just watch for the lame ass security that cruise through the pit.
Oh yeah, wish I would've seen more of the Divine Fits cause I like their new song, but we were in and out of the venue to slam beers at the truck.
I went too, it was a fun show. I saw the entire set of the Divine Fits and I really liked them.
I had a bunch of the free champagne they were giving out after midnight.
There was some guy in a suit talking to security who kept saying, "Happy New you all you assholes."
Last minute trip to Vegas next week (for CES) Jan. 9-11. I see this thread isn't as active as the NorCal one, but nothing of note seems to have been brought up on the recent page. Any leads on hip hop, electronic and/or comedy shows?
As far as Djs go a few good ones are playing if you like dubstep..You got Rusko at surrender and Nero over at XS. Other djs are La riots on thurs..and Dash Berlin if that is your thing. They also just announced at marquee ZEDD with rick ross haha wtf..i just might have to check this one out!
Now all of the big companies will be having after parties as well and your badge is a good way in. Some you have to RSVP for but its already to late. Check out the Gibson Tent.. In past years they have had various rock artists grace the stage for a free private intimate show. Also with free booze. One year i saw Peter Frampton! it was great!
*Edit Found the Luda show info. Looks like he's just hosting a club event.
As far as CES itself, I'm still without an actual pass! I know I know. I'm hustling and keeping fingers crossed, but will be with others with CES passes. I know several companies are hosting their own parties and events outside of actual CES itself because its so expensive to show there. While I'm hoping and praying a CES pass comes up, I know there will be alternative options to be had. Thanks again!
Ya steve aoki for me is a pass and I have seen nero and rusko shows numerous times. Still will probably do Nero at Xs because they keep their sets fresh.
There is lots going on..and ALOT of people will be there hence the 300% hotel room hike in every hotel. Make reservations at the good restaurants right now if you plan on going to them. Dont even think about trying to go eat at the new ceasars palace buffet i waited about 50 min during SEMA week and i can only imagine how bad it will be this week. I cant wait its been years since i have been at CES
