I think ticketmaster is the devil and that is really what it comes down to. There’ s more to be said though for this evil corporation. Think about it, they are just as bad as the recorded execs. It’s a bunch of assholes that have nothing whatsoever to do with the muzik, the art that is being created. In no way do they participate in the creative process nor do they care about it or the end result, as long as it is something they can sell and use to take our hard earned money away from us. They saw an opportunity to become the middleman between concert venues and concert goers and charge ridiculous amounts of money in the name of the unholy service charge. For fuck’s sake, the last handful of tickets I’ve been forced to buy from ticketmaster I’ve been charged $2.50 per ticket for it to be e-mailed to me. Ummm, wasn’t that the fucking point of e-mail, it was fast, and it didn’t cost money like normal mail. Fucking bullshit right. Let’s not forget about Family Values ’07 (and I would bet ’06) when my friends and I got charged more in service charges than we did in ticket prices. They even included parking in the service charge for each ticket…what the fuck! we carpooled to that concert but we all got charged like we going to have our own car there.

As much as I hate Slim’s and the Catalyst for the disgusting way their security treat concert attendees (btw, yes, I hope all of their security die and rot cause they are either part of the problem, or allowing the problem to continue, but that’s another discussion) , I admire the fact that I can buy tickets directly from those venues and be charged only $1.00-$2.50 for service charges. In fact, the same holds true for their website and you know what that means, that obviously ticketmaster isn’t charging us for the maintenance on their website, because if those little website can charge that little for service charges, than the evil ticketmaster obviously doesn’t need to either.

I don’t know if there’s much left to say.
Fuck ticketmaster
Fuck ridiculous service charges
Whenever you can, buy from the band or from the venue directly
Bypass the middleman and make sure to kick him in the shins whenever you have the chance

Remember kids, the music industry is dead!
The Revolution is here !
We’re it, so either live it, or get the fuck outta the way and don’t make any trouble
