Ticket bloodbath  
I spent my morning trying to get tickets to Arcade Fire's five NYC shows. I failed. (Luckily for me, I do have a ticket b/c a friend did manage to get through.) Tickets.com' server(s) went down in flames, apparently - how they could have failed to gauge the demand is beyond me.

Had I not had a ticket, this would not have been funny at all. Ah, Craigslist.

Sheesh, I failed miserably in trying to get tickets for those tiny London shows they just did. And a 'friend' of mine angered me further when she managed to get two tickets after I'd told her about the gig, and touted them for some ludicrous amount on ebay. And thanked me for the 'tip'.

I did manage to get tickets for their shows at Brixton Academy next month though.

Oh, what a jerk! Drop your friend. Scalpers are evil and have much bad karma in store. AF are coming back here in mid-May, and I'm seriously considering postponing foreign travel so that I can see them again. But in the meantime, seeing them tomorrow and in April at Coachella! Most exciting.
