Queens of the Stone Age is gonna play a show in the city on March 23rd.

The show sold out in about -1 minute. Guess who didn't get tickets? Well, you guys, yeah. But also not me.

The thing about that is, I really enjoy this band. I would like to see them live. I do not have good luck trying to win radio contests, but there are some radio contests I could try to win if you guys fail me.

I come to you this evening an empty vessel. I can't think of a sure fire way to get myself into this show without a ticket. But I know you guys. You're wiley and crafty and full of devilment. I you can work together to help me figure out a way into this show... if you do, I'll send you a t-shirt!

is there any of those online ticket auction sites and shizzle? or buy one on the black market? :D

Or! Go to the show, hide behind a trash can. Then, when an old decrepit couple come beat them with the trash can and take their ticket :bigsmile

This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BWTxyDV60E)is the best way to go about it. I don't know how relevant it is. PS language warning.

I am so disappointed in the lack of devilment in this thread.

Scalpers will sell you a ticket for too much money. FUCK THOSE GUYS, RIGHT?

I suggest taking a lot of psychedelic drugs and then charging past security hollering at the top of your lungs and flailing your arms wildly.

It sounds crazy, but it worked for me. Most arenas take tickets at the main entrance, not actually going into the central arena area. For a sold out show I wanted to see (it was either Tool, or Bob Dylan. I can't remember) I got a job working concessions.

Then once the show was getting going, I told them I quit (Work concessions??!?! Fuck dat noize!!!! I'm not selling giant pretzels with Tool playing 100 ft away) and walked into the arena area. I couldn't get down onto the floor, but I got down really close in the seating area. It worked out better than I even expected. :D

It's worth a shot, maybe.
