      Oh nevermind, I just saw the update.

    5. Creator Sarah O'Connor on May 5, 2010

      Have set times been posted anywhere?

    6. Creator Jon Bernhardt on May 5, 2010

      I hear there might be a lot of people hanging out outside 158 Bleecker Street for a couple of hours before the show starts. Maybe that would be a good place to have a meetup?

    7. Creator Kathryn Morris on May 4, 2010

      I too would be interested in meeting up with fellow solo ticket holders.

    8. Creator Angela McCoy on May 2, 2010

      Dave, that sounds great. I am coming in with a good friend of mine but it would be awesome to meet some new people beforehand. My email is nuevafemme@hotmail.com. Let me know. : )

    9. Creator Judes on April 29, 2010

      That is not a bad idea at all.

    10. Creator Dave Bragdon on April 17, 2010

      Er, make that 250 of us!

    11. Creator Dave Bragdon on April 17, 2010

      125 people only got one ticket, so a lot of us will be going to the benefit solo.

      Anyone interested in a meetup before the show, so we don't have to be so lonely? :)

    12. Creator Jake Gano on April 8, 2010

      Man..i was just hours late to hear about this event...I'm thrilled for everybody that gets to go. Will it be taped? It would be a nice consolation if we could watch it, even if we can't be there.

    13. Creator ami on April 7, 2010

      Man, I would really love to see this show. Please let me know if there is any way possible to get a ticket at this point.

    14. Creator Ben Goldberg on April 5, 2010

      Hey Everyone...sorry for taking the weekend and end of last week before replying to questions or publishing comments. I wish I could tell you it involved a nice bubble bath, but you may as well just imagine it did. Mr Bubble take me away, you know?

      Sara, you have hopefully gotten confirmation. If not, let me know.

      Katie, we are unfortunately not set up to accept trades of names. If you purchased the ticket, and your name is presently down, it is you that gets into the show. I know that can reach the realm of Massive Suck for a friend who is more desiring, but if we open this door, we (1) present the chance for someone to profit unfairly off this and (2) it will create more confusion and work for those manning the door the night of, which means a longer wait time for attendees to get inside, which means unhappier posts on Brooklyn Vegan. At the risk of not having the optimal fanboy/girl audience, I've decided to stick to the rules - sorry!

      Hi Ben,

      I just entered my name, but I have a question:

      I know someone who deserves to go to this event more than I do, if I show up to the event with him and present my ID, could he go in instead?

      Thanks,
      Katie

    16. Creator Cathlin on April 2, 2010

      Hey guys - I have an extra ticket now! I know it's very short timing so whoever can email me at catbondo at gmail.com first will get it. Let me know!

    17. Creator James Thornton on April 2, 2010

      Michael S.,

      Some plans just fell through and I have one extra. It's yours if you email me by 11AM EST.

      I realize it's unlikely, but in the off chance anyone has an extra ticket I'd also be interested in it.

    20. Creator Jefferson on April 1, 2010

      I realize the chances are slim. But on the off chance anyone has an extra ticket I too would be very interested in it.

    21. Creator Matthew Stecker on April 1, 2010

      I'd be happy to make a $400 donation to the project if someone puts me on as their 'extra'.

    22. Creator joe skilton on April 1, 2010

      DO any spare tickets exist out there? I'm going nuts having just found out about this thing!

    23. Creator sara on April 1, 2010

      Before he sends me HIS money, rather.

    24. Creator sara on April 1, 2010

      Question for Ben: Sorry to be a pain in the ass, but is there a way to get confirmation of the names we entered in the form? I signed up Michael Southwick (below!) as my plus one, but I'd like to send him something so he knows I'm not making the whole thing up before I send him my money. Or maybe you could just post a comment in response confirming that I'm not a scumbag?

      Best,
      Sara Cardace

    25. Creator Michael Southwick on April 1, 2010

      Still looking for an extra... if my sister had a ticket, her face may explode. Hate to be hounding the boards, but I'm desperate!

    26. Creator Angela McCoy on April 1, 2010

      Ben, the link to the form that you sent in the last email-- It says to enter MY name. To clarify, that entry form is for the plus one names, and our (the purchasers) names should already be documented, correct? Just want to make sure I get this right.

    27. Creator Michael Southwick on April 1, 2010

      Oooh Sara pick me please! I just e-mailed you. I'll be your BFFL!

    28. Creator Mike Erwin on April 1, 2010

      Mark, can I have you put your extra ticket in my partners name actually because I dont know if it will let me switch then ame on my original ticket. I will send you her name by e-mail.

    29. Creator sara on April 1, 2010

      Hi all! I've got an extra ticket and I need to nail down a name for it by tomorrow noon. Email me at scardace at gmail.com if you're interested. Thanks! - sara

    30. Creator Michael Southwick on April 1, 2010

      Haha well thanks :)

    31. Creator Mike Erwin on April 1, 2010

      Mark - its freeradical36 at hotmail dot com

      thanks again!

    32. Creator Mark Clauburg on April 1, 2010

      Mike E., what's your email address so we can get this done before they ask for the names? Mike S., if I don't hear from Mike E. by the time the email request comes, I'll look your way. Thanks, Ben!

    33. Creator Mike Erwin on April 1, 2010

      Thanks for the quick response Ben.
      Mark, if you would like please e-mail me at freeradical36 at hotmail dot com and I will totally paypal you the face value for the ticket if you put it in my name. Thank you Thank you Thank you.

    34. Creator Michael Southwick on April 1, 2010

      I'm ticketless, desperately seeking an extra from anyone... looks like I should've posted this 3 comments earlier lol

    35. Creator Ben Goldberg on April 1, 2010

      Mark, of course doing something like that is totally cool. We are all about the ethics of intent here. If you have a legit desire or need, we'll try to assist. We want everyone attending to have as good a time as possible. And fear not about little adjustments like that - we're humans, not computers, and we know how to read, and we know how to tell our computers to do things differently if need be.

    36. Creator Mike Erwin on April 1, 2010

      Mark,
      If the organizers are ok with this I would LOVE to buy your extra ticket off of you. Lets wait and see if they respond saying its ok. Either way, thanks so much for the offer.

    37. Creator Michael Southwick on April 1, 2010

      Lots of us are looking for those pesky tickets Mike... I'd say count your blessings that you got one! :)

    38. Creator Mark Clauburg on April 1, 2010

      My buddy and I both were able to get tix, so there's an extra. I didn't see an option to change from $150 to $75 before noon today without canceling the entire order, so I didn't take any chances. I'd be happy to put your name in when that email comes asking for it in exchange for the face value via Paypal. I'll send you confirmation emails, screenshots, whatever for proof. You know Ben will take me off the list if I don't follow through. He seems to have made all of this really legit. I'm more concerned with hogging this extra ticket from a fan than the money. Someone please let me know if I'm not following protocol here. I will just eat the money if I am. It is certainly worth more than what I paid.

    39. Creator Mike Erwin on April 1, 2010

      I was only able to get one ticket to the show and I really really would like to go with my partner (she is an even bigger Jeff Mangum fan than me). I am going to put my ticket in her name but it would be amazing if there was a way we could both go. So if anyone has an extra ticket that they would sell at face value (we'll even make an extra donation for Chris Knox) we would be eternally gratefull and be your best friend.

    40. Creator Ben Gleason on April 1, 2010

      I'm really excited about this. I love concerts that go to great causes. I haven't been to a good one since Dark Was The Night Live, and I have a feeling this is going to blow that show away. PORTASTATIC!!!!

    41. Creator Joseph Quinn on March 31, 2010

      Ben, Thanks for organizing this Benefit. It's commendable that fans were able to purchase tickets and how vigilant you are against scalpers. I really thought I would have to buy a ticket off Craigslist for $300. I can't wait for the show.

    42. Creator Meredith Menke on March 31, 2010

      Thank you so much Angela--we managed to get your released ticket!

    43. Creator Angela McCoy on March 31, 2010

      Okay, I canceled the second order (for one) and just left the first pledge (for two) in place. Please let me know if there is any other confusion with this. : ) Thanks again!

    44. Creator Angela McCoy on March 31, 2010

      Awesome! Thank you for the response.

    45. Creator Ben Goldberg on March 31, 2010

      Angela - Fear not, it looks like there was just some digital confusion since you ordered twice. You will be receiving two tickets.

      -ben

    46. Creator Jeremy Griffes on March 31, 2010

      Update: I found a buddy in Brooklyn who will take my second ticket.

    47. Creator Angela McCoy on March 31, 2010

      Ben, should I assume that the confirmation email is correct, or the kickstarter "manage your pledge" page? I am not going to slit my wrists but I am getting anxious about figuring that out. : )

    48. Creator Ben Goldberg on March 31, 2010

      Selling tickets to the needy at face value is all good, and I bet The Ethicist would say the same thing. The only stipulation is that you have to have your names figured out by tomorrow when we set your purchases in stone.

      -ben

    49. Creator Meredith Menke on March 31, 2010

      Brittany,

      My only fear about freeing up the ticket through kickstarter is that we would miss the window to purchase it and be back at square one. If you're willing to sell us your spot (again, only paying face value-- nobody is scalping here) then you could put my husband's name when you're contacted by kickstarter and we could mail you a check that was dated for a day or two after the show. This shows that we're serious about making good on our commitment but also provides us a level of security since we don't know each other. If this sounds like a reasonable option we could discuss it further off the comment board.

      Again, we're not trying to circumvent the system here but we are traveling from North Carolina and it would be a bummer if both of us couldn't get into the show. We are not willing to pay any more than the $75.

    50. Creator Angela McCoy on March 31, 2010

      Anybody else having discrepancies between what they pledged, the confirmation email, and what kickstarter says? I pledged 150, and received a confirmation email stating that I had admission for two, but when I go to "manage your pledge," kickstarter says I contributed 150 for admission for one. It is possible I am holding 3 tickets if this is incorrect, so keep checking back as the extra ticket will be back on kickstarter once I figure this out.
