Re: Post a song you like or love.

I was watching Streets Of Fire the other day ... the movie and its soundtrack are still as good as they were 40(!) years ago.

Streets of Fire 1984, I Can Dream About You - Dan Hartman, 4K Upscaling & HQ Sound (youtube.com)
Amazing that it's the same voice that sang and wrote this...
...

and this...


Dan Hartman is such a tragic story...

I've listened to this song/watched this video about a hundred times in the last few weeks.

Cowboy Junkies' ethereal cover of Lou Reed's Sweet Jane. Margo Timmins delivers one of the most exquisite vocal performances of the 1980s. I was blown away by the song when I first heard it in Natural Born Killers and remains one of my favorites.

It's a great album, recorded at Holy Trinity church in Toronto.
The sound quality is fantastic, and according to the recording engineer it was recorded on a Sony Betamax hooked up to an A/D converter and using a single microphone.

I remember first hearing of them when that album came out in 1988. I was working at the local steel company and would come home from a nigh shift, turn on the TV and while surfing past MuchMusic I'd often see them play the music video for Misguided Angel.

Obscure/forgotten L.A. based new wave band A Drop In The Gray from their debut (and only) album Certain Sculptures in the mid-80s. I was able to pick up a copy on vinyl not long ago.

If you can take him into it, Hozier was very impressive when I saw him in Wilmington. Another thing of interest for that show anyway, the ticket prices collapsed as the gates opened on the third party sights. Pit tickets where going for $30-$40 which was cheaper than lawn. I don't know how it's been at other shows.

I bet that happened because most venues aren't allowing resales right now--only last minute. I find anti scalping measures frustrating, because it's a backup for people who weren't on time buying their tickets. Flooding all the resale tickets to the last few days seems like it could cause the secondary market to crash.

Honestly, it's about time they cracked down. I got really sick and tired of trying to get tickets on Ticketmaster and immediately find the same seats relisted on Ticketmaster for 2-5x face value.

You can buy tickets in advance. The transfer just happens later. The whole Fan2Fan is just lip service.

Wait, where would I find tickets then? My best friend likes Hozier, and I'm pretty sure she'd go see him in Bend with me if I could find tickets.

Yeah, resellers making it hard to buy in the first place would be annoying. I usually go to less popular shows, but ran into that buying Hamilton tickets years ago. But after a big stall out on my computer (I think ticketmaster was slammed), I actually got tickets--then over the next several months watched them climb in price to the point where I couldn't bring myself to use them. My kids, who didn't know the value of a dollar, used theirs since I felt it was a gift I couldn't take back. But I sold the other 2 tickets and it paid for their flights and some of their hotel.

Is there a site that does that? The tickets at most concerts I've seen get released 3 days prior and they make a big deal about how resold tickets won't work.

Yeah it was terrible when Springsteen went on sale the last time. I had the presale code, most of the good seats were already gone then when the general on sale happened all the good seats were 4 and 5x face value as verified resale on Ticketmaster. Seriously WTF!

Back on the U2 Innocence/Experience tour my friend bailed on me for NYC/MSG. I went anyways and sold the extra ticket via Ticketmaster for more than I paid. It covered all my expenses for the trip.

All of them. Stubhub, Seat Geek, Vivid, Game Time, Tic Pic etc. The non transfer is a hollow threat. Too much money in the resale market. Those companies have built workarounds where they will host the tickets on a website. When the tickets become available the seller sends them to the reseller and the reseller sends you an email with a link to the tickets. The tickets very leave the original sellers Ticketmaster account. You will not be able to add them to an Apple/Google wallet. Slightly higher chance of fraud but not big enough that it's a problem plus those companies and your credit card off protection.

Also production release tickets that were held back and not used will become available in the days before the concert through Ticketmaster. I have yet to see a show that doesn't have them.
