YYY

The indie rock/art punk/(insert your own genre) trio will be at Northern Lights August 1. Tickets go on sale Saturday morning -- they're $25 (ouch).

Yeah Yeah Yeahs released their third full-length album, It's Blitz!, earlier this year. For what it's worth, Pitchfork was a big fan.

This show could be a good time. YYY has a rep for putting on great shows, thanks in large part to singer Karen's O's outrageous stage persona.

Bonus Northern Lights item: Kevin Costner will be performing there July 21. Really.

(25 isn't really a bad price.)

They don't love you like I love you.

Somebody has to put an end to Ticketmaster. I mean, the extra-charge douchebaggery is worse and worse.
Ticket: $25
Convenience Charge: $6.15, about 25% WTF
Order Processing Charge: $3.55
Free shipping.
Two tickets at $25: I paid $65.85

I you are in Clifton Park or near, I would advise to go straight to Northern Lights box office... (let me know how it goes).

I would be all over this show like a cheap suit but I will be out of town. Someone has to post about their experience so I can live vicariously through them.

Because Daniel mentioned "Maps" --

Ted Leo's (famous to some) cover/uncover of Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone"

"Somebody has to put an end to Ticketmaster. I mean, the extra-charge douchebaggery is worse and worse."

yeah no kidding, ticketbastard is evil. it's owned by barry diller's company. barry diller is one of the highest paid CEOs in the country, in 2005 he was "awarded" with a compensation package of $295 million. he's a greedy mfer who has a monopoly in the ticketing business and exploits regular people so he can obscene amounts of money.

my favorite thing about ticketmaster is that they actually CHARGE you more money to print the tickets at home. you can get the tickets shipped for free but if you want to save them money but printing them yourself it's an extra $2.50. they recently bought their only real competitor, live nation, so i wouldn't be surprised if the "convenience" fees add up to more than the ticket itself in a few years.

oh, and to the poster, $25 is ouch? have you been to any concerts in the past 5 years? $25 is pretty cheap by most standards.

I'd combine the apple cider donuts from Golden Harvest Farm with the original tart froyo from Ayelada to create fall's best creation, having a taste of both worlds
