Frustrated Blogger has been messaging me all day to get Dayglow Tickets. You can get tickets for the low price of like a billion dollars. Seriously, who would spend nearly $60 for the same show we had last year with no big DJs announced. I saw Tiesto for less than that. No big DJs, no ticket. It’s crazy. Another factor you have to add to your total cost is your clothes. Your shirt, jeans, and sneakers will be ruined. They tell ya its washable paint, but I can tell you that last year, I had to throw my outfit out. $60 for David Solano and BassJackers is highway robbery.
PS: don’t even get me started on the people who buy VIP tickets for $90 just so they can get a string bag, cheap sunglasses, and a waterbottle…
Now called “Life In Color.” The Ryan Center is selling pre-sale tickets this Monday the 28th between 10 AM and midnight. General admission tickets are $55 and VIP tickets (which apparently get you mad free shit with) are $90. I almost wasn’t going to write about this because there is a limited amount of tickets and I want one real bad. However I decided to be unselfish and do it anyway.
If you’re planning on rolling though, you should hunt around for molly now or else you’ll end up snorting pixie sticks like my friends did before Steve Aoki.
I’m not sure what to expect out of Dayglow tonight at the Ryan Center. Tickets were hideously expensive, nearly twice the cost of what was originally promised last semester. For that reason alone, I’m sure ticket sales were affected. Also, why would anyone buy a ticket if they are NOT going to be on the floor? Not only is it awkward as fuck to dance in those tight rows, but there’s no real guarantee that you will even get paint on you! I know last spring, people who were in the balcony at Lupos got pissed because they were as dry as a desert after the show. Here’s a list a few annoying things:
1. Show is at 8. doors at 7: This is way too early. In order to make it on time, you have to start drinking before the sun goes down. Not that I have a problem with daydrinking, but maybe not on a tuesday when you still have afternoon classes.
2. tickets are over $80. For 3 no name DJs and David Solano, that’s pretty pricey.
3. Glow sticks and paint are not allowed to be brought in the Ryan Center. Sounds like the RC is trying to be a monopoly in the paint buisness. Only their paint is allowed. And only their glowsticks can be purchased. Load of horseshit if you ask me.
4. Needs more cowbell: self explanatory.
