Edit: If you got a regular presale message link that works, just use that and the BEGN password. I had to completing discard TicketMaster and I've only managed to get one of the shows I'm going to as of yet.

The emails from BEGN/Matador say tickets are available 10:00am Eastern time, but I'm pretty sure they're actually available at 10:00am of the time zone the show is in. Because I logged in at 10:02 Eastern, and tickets for Denver were unavailable, in fact the only shows that were available were NYC, Philly, Richmond and Atlanta...all on the Atlantic coast.

I guess we'll see if my theory is correct in about 10 minutes, if cities in the Central time zone are available.

Yeah, that is right. Nashville show is listed, but Knoxville show wasn't on Ticketmaster, but I got an email from that venue for the May 1st presale and the BEGN code worked, so all is well. Too bad it's seated, front row center though!

I'm confused... Can you get them if you didn't do the buy early get now?

I'm trying to get tickets for the Seattle show. Do I go to ticketswest.com, and put in the password BLOCKPARTY?

I've done that already, but it doesn't say anything about SY, just the "Capitol Hill Block Party", so I'm skeptical... Help!

Because IT DIDN'T SAY THAT on the ticket website, and I don't want to buy non-refundable tickets online, when I'm hearing that you can only get pre-sale tickets from promotional codes through buy now get early.

I didn't even know what the hell this block party is.

How? Ticketmaster does not have any Knoxville tix yet, & Bijou's presale is not allowing people to purchase. Where did you go to get Knoxville tickets?

^: No luck, every time I go to "BUY NOW" for pre-sale, a window pops up saying this... "This promotion is not on sale".

I'm just anxious to get these tix, to say the least. How much was the total?

I hate that the Bijou is seated. I really don't think I'll be sitting. After a couple of songs, I'll be it at the edge of the stage like I should be. I saw Blonde Redhead there and sitting just made everything awkward.

Hell, when TVOTR came here, everyone just stood up, damned their seat assignment, & went to wherever there was space.
