    Re: Sasquatch! 2017

    With that lineup, I wouldn't be entirely surprised if they end up issuing last-minute single day tickets to try to move extra ticket volume.

  8. Re: How do we feel about this AEG funding the evil empire story?

    I agree -- in the end, it matters very little whether the motivation for positive action comes from wanting to manage a public image or comes from actually caring. It's the actions that matter.
