Stiletta played at Pop Roxx, and they were fun: old-school girl-punk. Do check them out.
You may have noticed that when you order tickets from us online, there's a $2 service charge to cover the bank credit card fees and the general pain-in-the-ass of running the store. I thought this was low as such things go, but apparently I had no idea. Imagine my surprise when, for the first time in years, I tried to buy a ticket for a show at The Warfield! (Apparently someone over there hates us, so it's damned near impossible for us to get guest-listed, even though we let their staff in here for free all the time. Whatever.)
Anyway, Gang of 4 are touring again: they're playing at The Warfield on Tue Oct 18. You must go see this show. When I saw them in May, they put on what is probably the best rock show I have ever seen in my life.
But when you do, please do so by going to the Fillmore box office instead of ordering them online, because if you go through TicketBastard, they will try to charge you $14.75 worth of "service" on a $25 ticket. That's a 59% service charge!
One of those fees is $2.50 for the "print your ticket out at home, instead of having us maybe remember to mail it to you in a month" charge. Yes, that's right: if they print and mail it, it's "free". If you print it yourself, it costs $2.50.
Screw those guys, seriously.
