Instead of a normal post, I’m just going to rant a little bit. Last night I made the trek up from Philadelphia to Brooklyn’s House of Vans to FINALLY see the Gorilla Biscuits after listening to them forever with probably my favorite band The Bouncing Souls. I took a day off, had tickets, and got in line 2 hours early and was close enough to the front since we got there decently early. It was going to be a rad day.
Well, the venue “hit capacity” because of the absurd amounts on the guestlists. They hit capacity quickly, because apparently they sent out way too many tickets. Apparently a third of those tickets were not honored because the guestlist suddenly got huge, stranding hundreds of punk/hardcore fans to roam Brooklyn. Why would you issue that many tickets? Fuck that shit. I’m bitter, here’s a Gorilla Biscuits song. End rant.
