Damon Albarn Scheduling Conflict

Damon Albarn Scheduling Conflict

So, I am going to Governors Ball again in early June and Damon Albarn is playing. Now, I am on record as despising his new album but I still want to see what he can do in a live setting. Last time I saw him was maybe four years ago fronting Gorillaz at MSG and I was gagging for a Blur gig and never got it. I’ve never seen him solo and I wanted to see what the hell the formerly high octane rocker could do with a bunch of truly dreary songs.

But Thursday we got the “Clash Board” and, unless they change their mind which they certainly should, Damon Albarn and Outkasts will be playing at the same time. A no brainer, of course, Outkasts I haven’t since circa “Bombs Over Baghdad” and this tour might be all about the benjies, and the word from Coachella was they kinda sucked,s till this is the one to see. Plus, I know Randalls Island toow ell and I am not going to make the move from one side to the other while both bands are playing… so I figured I’d pick up a ticket for Damon at Irving Plaza on Sunday… I am leaving early Sunday because I can’t take Vampire Weekend again, so it would make  nice end top the weekend…

Are you still with me New York??? So I went on Ticketmaster but the gig is sold out, they  redirected me to their resale website and it was $60. So I thought I’d check Stubhub and it was $70. So I figure, wow, Stubhub is usually cheaper than Ticket Now but whatever and then it dawned on me… the Stubhub price included fees.

Now, I do this all day long and I still missed the obvious, if I missed it and nearly bought more expensive tickets, what would the average consumer do? Well, Stub Hub know what the average consumer would do. They’d buy off Vivid Seats and pay huge fees. I nearly bought a ticket to Elbow from Vivid Seats. At first glance it was 15% less than Stub Hub. After more study it was 20% more. They then offered me a huge discount so I went back on only to discover it was nonsense based upon buying a ticket valued at more than I was spending.

By the way, I held off buying the ticket!
