    Anyone with an extra ticket to the LA show on Monday? I got on groovetickets right an noon and still couldn't get one. This would be greatly appreciated and I'm willing to pay $50. Thanks.

    Screwed over too, eh? I tried for one, put my signature in, site said it didn't work, tried again, and tickets were all gone. They should've used ticketmaster for this because Groovetickets probably couldn't handle this at all. I did a WANTED craigslist posting as well to see if I can get someone to sell me a ticket.

    Good news is that El Cid will be selling tickets on the day of the show too. I will be there very very very very very very early to see if I can get one. It's supposed to rain a lot that day so I hope that means less people show up to wait for a ticket.

    wow if starbright got screwed, then it must have sold out in a matter of seconds. You go to every show imaginable, so jealous!! haha I hope you two find some tickets.

    Here in Austin, I believe Spoon will playing in the parking lot of Waterloo. That's just what I heard

    good to know that they are selling tickets at the venue. i'm hoping not many people will be lining up to wait for them seeing as i don't get off work until 5-5:30. i'm really excited for this show though.

    LOL! You know it, Ed. I have shows lined up in April already, but of course all of them require me getting on a plane and train to get to. It'd be nice to see a headlining Spoon show here in LA this year. ;)

    Just reading about your quest for tickets makes me exhausted. I've decided to just wait until Spoon remembers how awesome we were for them last time and decides to show up in Houston. A pre-2011 date would be neat-o, guys.

    yeah it doesn't look like we'll get another headlining show this year unless its way later in the year. that's why i'd like to catch them here. plus, you know the sound is just gonna suck at coachella.

    No plans on Monday... I'll probably stake out the venue pretty early... see if I have a shot at getting in...

    How much of the new record do you think they'll play (outside of Written in Reverse and Got Nuffin)?

    I'd love it if they played the whole thing! If the show's supposed to be a special one to celebrate the album's release, they should play more than half of it. The show in Portland last month had 5 Transference songs. (Mystery Zone, Written in Reverse, Is Love Forever?, Trouble Comes Running, Got Nuffin)

    hope they play "i saw the light." i feel like that song would really jam live.
