Pixies are playing secret gigs at The Troxy on June 3rd and 4th
Tickets here http://www.lalapixiesloveyou.com/
FUCK!!!! This will sell out before I get to a computer and this booking requires flash... DAMN YOU IPHONE!!!!
heart said yes, wallet said no, heart won ... two tickets for the Friday purchased and printed
i googled 2600
I can pay you back straight away.
I just fucked up by accidentally closing the window halfway through ordering and now it won't let me restart the order. Fuckers!
Stick with it. The tix should still be in your basket in the top right which should show up if you try to buy the tickets again.
ah man this is brilliant news, got me 2 tickets!!
IT WON'T LET ME BUY THEM!!!!
If only I wasn't away on holiday that week
Brilliant. Thank you.
or is that how they're marketing them by setting up a special website for them
work pc doesn't have flash properly, and it's locked down so we can't install stuff on it :( This is gonna be gone before I get a chance isn't it??
does this mean they are playing with RATM do you think?
Which is also the day of my last.fm. Holy awesome, Batman.
...thanks for the heads-up! Two tickets bagged for the 4th. Top stuff.
I want to buy a couple, but there's every chance I won't be able to make this come June and end up having to stick them on Scarlet Mist. This is going to be a problem isn't it?
it has your name, a code and a barcode on it ... I suspect that it wouldn't be too tricky to edit the name if necessary, but it's possible that they might cross-reference against their own records when they scan them, I guess
now you've said that, yeah.
This will be GIGANTIC.
Kiss me cunt!
you're DEAD mate. DEAD
already the others'll come a cropper, now you as well? Idiot.
Scrotum might give me a broken face.
I have been cited as somewhat of a bone machine in my time though so who's to know?
Saving for my scrapbook here
oh. yeah. just got two tickets for this, i was worried about it being fake at first but seems it isn't. considering this has been up all day, it was surprisingly easy to get tickets just now.
thought they'd be will gone. AMAZING.
Promised myself never to go again, even for this.
You either stand at the front and are not allowed to piss or go get a drink.
or you stand at the back, with house lights on, bars clunking either side of you and a fucking american hotdog stand stinking it out, totally detached from the music.
Grubby, horrid, totally unexperienced bouncers too.
It's no coincidence not as many bands are playing here after quite a few did last year. Pixies have organised this late and thus are playing there.
the no piss, no beer 'rule'.
The only problem is that the lowest tier (the one nearest the stage), isn’t nearly as big as the one at the Forum, and they’ve recently started imposing a capacity limit down there. What this means is that a bouncer is stationed at each flight of steps, operating a one-in, one-out policy on access to this part of the lower level. If you’ve got friends down there, they won’t let you in. If you need to pop out for a drink or to the loo, they won’t let you back in. The upper floor seating sits really low over the upper tier of the standing area, and this upper tier is probably at about the same height as the stage, meaning that if you’re not on the lower tier, or in the front row of the upper tier, you’re unlikely to be able to see the stage at all.
Added to this, the bars sit right out into the upper level, and can be quite noisy, and there is this foul-smelling hotdog stand that will make you gag the first time you smell it.
Tip: Get there early, on an empty bladder, and don’t get pissed.
If you can get to the lower tier, and stay there (as I managed at the Flaming Lips and at Monsters of Folk), it’s a good venue with excellent sightlines and top notch sound. If not, you might as well have gotten seats upstairs.
my boyfriend got us tickets for the Friday!
