Now that's the ticket.

Many of you have asked if we sell tickets to shows in the past, and we've had to hang our heads in shame and reply in the negative. But no more! Thanks to our new friends at Ticket Alternative, you can now purchase tickets to shows at The EARL, the Drunken Unicorn, Whirlyball Atlanta, The Loft, Andrews Upstairs, Vinyl, Starlight Six Drive-In (a few big events each year), Sugar Hill and select other shows around town. (Unfortunately, we don't have tickets for Variety Playhouse and Smith's Olde Bar at this time.) Pretty exciting stuff. What that means is that when you walk through our doors, you can purchase a ticket for an upcoming show from any of the following artists:

Ted Leo, Dwele, Holly Golightly, Boris, Estates, Calla, Junior Brown, Great Lake Swimmers, John Vanderslice, Manchester Orchestra, Low, Eisley, Deerhunter, The Everybodyfields, The Brunettes, Matthew Dear, The Dirty Projectors, Dr. Dog, Magnolia Electric Company, Do Make Say Think, Caribou, Two Gallants, Midlake, The Ladybug Transistor, Rogue Wave, Blitzen Trapper, Jennifer Gentle, Bonde do Role, Earlimart, VHS or Beta, Oakley Hall, The Meat Puppets, Sunset Rubdown, Magik Markers, Enon, Jesu, Busdriver, Final Fantasy, David Bazan, The Sea and Cake, Snowden, Qui, Electric Six...and many more!

Now, there is a $1.50 service charge per ticket, but let's be fair here - that's better than certain ticket brokers which shall remain nameless. Besides, the way we figure, this setup is super convenient for you, the voracious music consumer. Stop by the store because you want a particular CD, pick up a ticket to a show while you're here. Pretty sweet, huh? We sure think so. Next time you're getting ready for a gig, keep us in mind.
