Hey Ticketmaster, Someone Wants To Make You Less Annoying. Listen To Them.

So, a designer by the name of Matthew Lew decided to completely rework the idiotic & archaic design of tickets you get from TicketBastard. You’d think for the $30 “convenience fee” on a $60 ticket, they’d be a little more user-friendly and hip, but no. Until now (hopefully). Check out the open letter here where he gets into all the design geekery how-to’s and lots of different examples. C’mon Ticketmaster, get on the stick, it’s the future.

Billy Joel Announces Monthly Concerts @ Madison Square Garden


You want to know when you’ve arrived? When your monthly Residency is at Madison Square Garden. That’s right folks, Billy Joel himself will be doing monthly concerts in NYC at the Garden. In case you missed him in his prime, or wanted to do something nice for your folks/that cool aunt who always sneaks you the good wine at family gatherings, get tickets for this. But hurry, as it’s selling out obnoxiously quickly. Not Kraftwerk/Daft Punk quickly, but damn near close enough.  (via Ticketbastard)
