Owl City Mania

Posted By on Thu, Oct 8, 2009 at 4:00 PM


Scanning the Craigslist “Wanted” and “Tickets” sections today, I noticed a theme start to emerge. People are on the prowl for sold out Owl City tickets, and their desperation is steadily increasing.

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.”

Even smiley:

“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.
