Music: Lynyrd Skynyrd
Hello. I've been in a Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin, Beach Boys, The Allman Brothers, Cat Stevens, Elton John, Thunderclap Newman, Rod Stewart, Yes, Todd Rundgren, Simon & Garfunkel, The Who, The Seeds and Stillwater kind of mood today. can you guess what I'm listening to. well of course you can after that last one. Everyone I know owns the DVD!
so today I was buying tickets on-line for some shows coming up and I got to the Henry Fonda website to get a Turbo Negro/ INC ticket when Ticketmaster came up. That's the only way to buy tickets from the Fonda theatre! The ticket is only $18.00 but with all their bullshit service charges it comes out to be $27.35, which is nuts! The building facility charge is $2.00, then you have the convenience charge of $7.35, which of course in an inconvenience to all of us, then they try and get you with a "recommended" ticketfast for $2.50 where they e-mail you your ticket and you print it out. So if you do this..... why would all those other charges apply? We all know that ticketmaster is a huge rip off but why are you still buying from them? I'm not, and I haven't in a long time just for those reasons above. If bands can't play somewhere that you don't have to use ticketmaster then I don't need to see them anyway. Turbo Negro are playing with INC at the Anaheim House of Blues which is closer to me anyway, I can just go get a ticket at the box office anytime I want, even days before the show.
I bought my old 97's ticket for November as well as my ticket for the El Rey for this Sunday night with all these bands / comedians and entertainment going on for a benefit for habitat for humanity and the american red cross. check the el rey website for details.
