Hahaha what? As you know if you read any local internet websites, The Offspring, many folks’ favorite band from middle/high school/college is playing a free show at the Warfield this Friday the 31st.

So what gives with this craigslist ad?

I have 2 tickets to the Offspring show at the Warfield this Friday at 8pm. I can only sale 1 ticket and you can walk in with me as my guest for this show. After we walk in you can do whatever and enjoy the show. This is a once in a lifetime event for Offspring fans and you can’t get in any other way unless you have these tickets. Asking price is $200 and up. Email me your offer and I will get back to you.

Be there at 730. Doors at 8 or so

Hard to believe, right? See for yourself. Ever the intrepid journalists, we’ve emailed this guy, and will let you know how he’s justifying charging some poor fool $200 for a ticket that is otherwise free.
