Hey, remember when we told you about the tickets to Friday’s free (middle/high school/college nostalgia act) Offspring show that were going for $200 on craigslist? We mentioned that we emailed the guy, and he emailed us back! We said:

I thought this show was free? Does buying a ticket from you get me something I wouldn’t get otherwise?

The seller (we’ll keep his name private because we’re trying to be less old media) emailed us back, saying:

Well It is just a ticket to the show. Nothing more as far as I know. The show is “sold out” as they are no longer issuing tickets. If you where lucky enough to get tickets very early you could have gone for free.

Well, arguable ethics aside, he’s right:


Is what you see when you go to try to register to get a pass for Friday’s Offspring show at the Warfield.

HOWEVER, the folks at Samsung contacted us and have offered us 5 pairs of what they call “Priority Access” tickets to give away to our readers for Friday’s show at the Warfield. In their words: “The priority access tickets guarantee entrance before the general admissions line IF you arrive by 7:30.” You’ll go in through a special, “Priority Access,” line and will be able to stake your space out way before the general admissions folks get in.

All you need to do is enter with your email address: we’ll alert the 5 winners by noon, tomorrow. AND we don’t even want your $200!
