Street Scene waives service charges for tickets (today and tomorrow only)
In case you haven’t seen the ads plastered on every billboard and bus in San Diego, Street Scene is coming to downtown’s East Village and is now only two weeks away (cue excited applause).
This year, promoters have managed to secure another solid lineup, but as in any recession, there are your share of fans reluctant to fork over the cash for tickets — which are running at $65 for a one-day pass and $122 for a two-day pass. When you add in the fees and taxes, it can certainly become a drag on your wallet.
In this recession economy, the summer concert season has taken a hit. Some promoters have been perfectly okay with seeing more empty seats at venues than usual. Others, like LiveNation have taken steps to lower prices via discounts and two-for-one offers.
The folks at Street Scene also have a recession-busting trick up their sleeve. For Thursday, August 13th (today) and Friday, August 14th you can purchase your single and two day tickets without paying any service fees. Yes, you heard right — no additional service fees if you purchase your tickets prior to this weekend!
So if you’ve been lazy like me and failed to pick up a ticket, today should be your day to do it. And if you’re really good at procrastination, you can wait till tomorrow.
Street Scene happens August 28 and 29 in the Tailgate lot near PETCO Park and surrounding streets in the East Village. Headlining bands include the Black Eyed Peas, Modest Mouse, Cake, Conor Oberst, M.I.A., Thievery Corporation, the Dead Weather and the Silversun Pickups.
