Gotta think, gotta think. It all depends on Petey, my PT cruiser. If I can get the work done at a decent price in order to pass inspection, I might be able to make it. :pray:

Really, tomorrow? I just looked at Vegas and all they had was section 1, at $234 a pop. So does that mean the scalpers have the seats already??? :?

Was that the official LiveNation/Ticketmaster site? Make sure you follow the official link to buying tickets on Oddballfest.com because there are some fake sites out there which could rip you off.
Great news about the extra dates! Thanks for letting us know, 4ever. Good luck to those buying tickets this morning (10am local time) :cheer:

Sierra and I bought tickets to Phoenix. I have a ticket to Denver show, and las Vegas is a (if anyone is going and wants to meet up) trip. I did not get tickets for the Las Vegas show, but can always pay waaaay too much and get something later...oh, wait, I could have paid waaaay to much to get tickets last week. :shock:

It is the meet-ups that I am mostly excited about. I hope to see the gang in Colorado, hopefully perhaps in Las Vegas, or Irving, as I cannot fathom anyone wanting to come to Phoenix before late October...it is still miserable.

I was able to pull a quick trip to Vegas together in June for unbelievable airfare and hotel (Mirage) prices. If I could pull that off again, I'd do it, and... oh yeah, I'd need to find a ticket too..... :roll:

Today marks 1 week until the Oddball tour starts! :D Discussion about the FOTC NYC shows beforehand on Aug 17-19 at the McKittrick Hotel can be found here.

Also, in this video interview Bret talks a bit about Oddball. He says that their set will be more stripped back and similar to the shows they used to do during their early days in the clubs with a few new songs (some half written). He also says that their set will be 45mins-1hour long which means they will have many songs to play around with so they will switch it up each night which is good for those going to multiple shows. :)

I hear you MM! Still, new computers and going back to school are pretty cool too! ;) :nod:

I've been catching up on this thread and am dismayed to learn they ALMOST came to Canada. :sosad:

I keep thinking maybe I could make it to one of the East Coast gigs. But the timing is so bad...

Really wondering what it will be like this year, especially given they are performing as part of a festival and not on their own. I wonder if that will make it more or less likely that they'll do meet and greets. :hrm:
Oh well, I guess I'll be doing the vicarious thing again... Just hope this place gets busy! :popcorn:

Tour starts TOMORROW!

I'm curious about meet & greets too. I really hope they happen and that we'll get to read about all the details.

Oddball starts today! :cheer: I hope everyone who's attending will share their stories, pics and vids. :D
