Well, dang

A lot of shows sell out. We'll occasionally try to alert you to certain events that don't have tickets for sale anymore, which would allow you to ask — bother? — friends to take you. Or, evaluate the secondary market.

Echo and the Bunnymen plays Revolution Hall on Friday, Nov. 30, but it's sold out.
