This ain't no middle of the mall shit.
I get Stateside emails; I will post if I see it!
I don't recall getting any Stateside emails about all the upcoming shows in a while. I did see The Spits are playing Sail Inn and Metz is going to be at the Crescent!
The Postal Service should be worth a goddamn email!
So who else is going to Phoenix? I'm only going to be able to responsibly swing one of these shows and I suspect set times will shake out so I can actually see Postal Service at Coachella, whereas I doubt I'll be able to see Phoenix, so that along with the smaller venue and relatively cheaper price ($37 vs. $45 for what I presume will be GA floor, which is what I'd be interested in at Comerica) has me leaning toward Phoenix.
I'm planning on it, Rick. And an 11am on-sale time is perfect for me too.
I'm going to be in Phoenix for work this weekend (Thursday - Monday). I'm staying downtown just a couple of blocks from Crescent Ballroom. If anyone is going to any shows there (or a venue within walking distance), shoot me a PM and maybe we can meet up! I'm not at all familiar with downtown Phoenix.
I'm looking at possibly going to Crescent Ballroom for Slim Cessna's Auto Club on Saturday night.
Crescent Ballroom : (obvs.) They have a front room where a pretty good DJ spins, and then there's the backroom where the music venue is. Make sure you get a Honey Badger cocktail).
Lost Leaf: good beer bar. No food. Usually acoustic music going on in there
Bar Smith: usually Electronic and/or Hip Hop stuff going on there
Trunk Space: this is a tiny tiny venue with the best dive bar in Phoenix next door. It's also across the street from faxman's apartment.
Rhythm Room: not exactly downtown, but close enough. Blues bar but sometimes they have alt shows (although not as much anymore).
Monarch Theater: never been but I think it's like a metal place
Some decent food places downtown as well (check Phoenix New Times for more suggestions)
Carly's Bistro (medeterranian sandwich-art gallery-good beer selection--absinthe)
Bianco's (supposedly the best pizza in the country...very hard to get into)
Cibo (pretty close to Bianco's IMO)
Carolinas (a bit south of downtown but the best tortillas I've ever had)
LoLo's Chicken and Waffles
Angel's Trumpet Ale House (great beer selection; food is ok but nothing to get excited about)
Matt's Big Breakfast (my favorite breakfast place. They've just moved into a larger location, so the wait time for a table has gone from like 1.5 hours to 1/2 an hour. It's a must try)
Rose and Crown pub (across the walkway from Bianco's..it's an ok English pub)
George and Dragon (a way better English pub. It's north of downtown but easy to get to via the light rail)
Bliss/reBar is supposed to be good but never been. Also Ivy likes the Arrogant Butcher.
The Duce (a bit south of downtown but a fun vintage cocktail place)
Also, there's a comedy club in City Scape but I can't remember the name of it, and FilmBar is right across the street from Angels Trumpet (indie movies / lounge)
Sound City is showing at FilmBar this weekend!
It's a documentary by Dave Grohl.

The only thing I can find is this: http://www.tmpresale.com/2013/02/07/...sale-code.html
... a 3 day "presale pass" only costs $5 and they claim to have a 60 day money back guarantee but I don't feel like getting burned!
My greatest fear with doing it is that I'll pay for it only to find out the presale code they have is just the AMEX/CITI presale password or something stupid like that.
I was already planning on trying that! lol
WE ARE SO FUCKED! jk
I'm looking too and can't find it.
The stateside passwords are usually obvious, so Giveup might work. I think it is strange that they never posted anything or sent out an email after saying on their FB page that they were going to announce the password last night.
This ain't no middle of the mall shit.
I am trolling all over Facebook looking.
