You know what is an unreasonable amount of money to pay for one ticket to see Tegan and Sara at the Music Hall of Williamsburg? Look over there to your right—see that? A completely unreasonable amount of money to pay for one ticket to see Tegan and Sara at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.

  • Oh but Mike! This isn’t just a concert! It’s a VERY SPECIAL EVENING. For special evenings you pay big price! Also, fuck you, T&S!

  • This truly is bizarre. It’s certainly a much more intimate venue than they’ve played in awhile, but the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were charging like $30 for their MHOW gig, and it was actually a little cheaper than when they played a similarly special-small gig at Webster a few years earlier. Wait, are T&S more popular on the whole than YYYs? I guess it’s possible. But still, I can’t think of an indie-ish band where $75 would seem even like a reasonable degree of overpricing for a super-intimate show. Belle and Sebastian maybe? Beck?

    This also gets me thinking about what kind of conditions would have to be present to justify a $75 ticket. Amenities to consider:

    –the band personally taking your request
    –the band personally taking your request for which opening band
    –no opening band
    –four-hour set
    –free t-shirt
    –free entire wardrobe including some of those adidas star wars sneakers
    –helicopter service to and from your apartment
    –all you can eat sundae bar
    –free health care

    Premium!
