Anyone with basic computer science skills can game these onsales on Ames' site with scripts. You can have it in your cart before some one can click add to cart.

5:00- they hand out wristbands- not to get the posters but to differentiate between the people who waited 1 hour before gates open. You would assume they had an orderly way of doing this- you would be wrong. Everyone pushed and shoved to get the stupid bracelets.

5:30- They let people 50 at a time into the doors to go to the booths. Again- Madness ensues and the friends made throughout the hour become enemies- obstacles that stand in the way between you and a stupid poster. My friend was with me and couldnt get over how rediculous it was. People getting pushed/shoved.......

5:45- We get to the stand and people are cutting everywhere and jockeying for position. Lots of elbows and crying about being next in line.

5:50- The poster gates outside basically crash and a rush of people slam the merchant booths. I finally get to the stand with my buddy to get the 2nd wristband which allows me to get the coveted poster. I cant get out of line because everyone is busy pushing forward because bands are low. As I push my way out- 2 guys (people i was bullshitting and laughing with in line) freak out and push me back and ask me if i want to start something.

About 6:00 - Stand 1 sold out and a huge rush moves to stand 2 which sells out shortly after.
Cmon people theres no need to push.........just wait your turn.

Back in Phoenix late last night after two great MSG shows. I managed to get a poster for nite 2 via pure luck. Got to the venue too late for the Tuesday show, as they were sold out, but wasn't too disappointed when I saw the poster afterwards.

Wednesday night I got there earlier, around 4pm, but when I saw the already insane lines I figured I'd take my chances on ebay or just live without. I was leaning on a pole near the box office waiting for a friend who was on the drop line for extra tickets to be released, when a guy walked by. Without seeing me behind the pole he held up his arm with the wristband and (I believe) facetiously in a soft voice said "anyone wanna buy a poster?". I piped up "I do!", shocking him a little cause he didn't know I was there. He seemed to not know what to do for a sec until I asked 'how much?", then he said he'd sell me his wristband for $30 bucks. I only had two $20's so I paid him $40, figuring it's still cheaper than ebay. He was very happy and so was I.

So I got one! Figured it was karma to make up for the 5 car pile up crash I was in on Monday night on the Gowanus / BQE !! (no injuries, just smashed up the rental car).

Two amazing shows btw.

Peace,
KJ
