Since last Saturday, when the upcoming Owl City concert at The Venue sold out—the first show to ever sell out in advance at The Venue—fans of the synth-pop troubadour started scouring Craigslist for any available tickets.
On Monday, the tone was amicable:
“Looking for (2) Owl City Tickets for my daughter, Can only pay reasonable price. Please e-mail if you would like to sell them and at what price.”
“I really want to go to this concert and by the time I went to order tickets they were sold out. It would be greatly appreciated if I could get these tickets. Thanks =)”
But by Wednesday, people started to up the ante.
“I need one ticket for this up coming concert. I am willing to pay $20 for it.”
“I need one ticket to the Owl City concert at the Knitting Factory for 10/12. I am willing to pay $60 for one ticket.”
As of today, people were getting frantic:
“Hey, I'm looking for a couple of Owl City tickets here in Boise. I'm willing to pay $75 apiece for them (I need two). If you're willing to sell I'd appreciate a call.”
“My wife’s birthday and I missed out on tickets. She asked for this for her birthday please help me make this happen please please I HAVE CASH PLEASE.”
If anyone out there has a couple of Owl City tickets and wants a) to save a marriage or b) to make a cool $150, now is your chance. Do the wise thing.
