Mercury Lounge Ticket News
The Bowery Ballroom, Mercury Lounge, and Webster Hall "box office" has finally -and unfortunately- upgraded to the internet age. That means when you go to the Merc to buy tickets, it's now in realtime, instead of having tickets pre-printed and stuffed in envelopes.
Previously, when a show sold out online, you could rush down to the venue and snag up the leftovers in the envelopes. (Although, not that much has been selling out recently).
I'm pissed that I have to go all the way home after work today just to pick up my tickets for the Bowery show tonight. I totally forgot this morning. Grrr.
