I hate scalpers; they have music fans targeted for an ass fucking. They buy up all the tickets available for concerts - sometimes in quantities of up to 20 at a time - in a deliberate attempt to ensure the venue sells out, and then they sell those tickets on eBay for exorbitant prices. I've never purchased anything from eBay before, and that's for a good reason. I'm stubborn. I don't like being outbid.
I just paid $140.00 to see The Strokes.
Ps - I'm off to see TV on the radio tonight. It should be a good show, if their new album is anything by which to judge.
