Poof! The chance to snag a ticket or two to Arcade Fire's Big Sur show came and went....in about one minute. If you spent the morning jittery with anticipation and constantly refreshing the Henry Miller Memorial Library's Events page and were greeted with the opportunity to add your name to the "waitlist," join the club. Several of our officemates suffered the same fate.
But what is this "waitlist"? According to Magnus Toren over at the Henry Miller Library, there are some tickets set aside for Arcade Fire's record label, Merge. If those tickets become available, they will go to the first names on the waitlist. Translation: the show is sold out. Time to gear up for the Greek Theatre ticket sales.
