Well friends, I f-ed up and procrastinated my purchase of a ticket for Maryland Death Fest. :bouville:

I know, I know. It's my own damn fault. :mad:

But I was hoping beyond hope that maybe somebody could help me out. Do you have an extra ticket(s) for Saturday, or maybe know somebody that does? I am looking for one for sure, and maybe two. I know they said on the MDF site that some additional tickets MAY become available in early May, but this is not definite and I would like to have my travel plans made before then.

So if you hear anything or know anybody, the help would be very much appreciated. Message me or reply to this post, or whatever. Thanks.

Trust me... that's the first place I checked. That, and Craig's List.

Thanks for the tip, though. :rocker:

They will be adding more tickets sometime in May, they just needed to make sure they could first. That's probably your best bet, or just buy a 3-day ticket. YOU LUCKY BASTARD.

Have you heard that this is definitely the case?

I'm "semi-lucky". I only have clearance from the boss (a.k.a. wife) :whipped: for Saturday. I might try to finagle (sp?) Sunday as well, but Friday is definitely out, because I have to watch my two-and-a-half-year-old son that day (I am leaving early Saturday morning and making the drive...how bad is *my* obsession?). :rocker::rocker:

Yes, if I remember correctly. Check www.smnnews.com and the MDF forums.

Looks like you are correct - they are now saying that the tickets WILL be on sale - it's just a question of when, and how many will be available.

I'm still going to leave my request officially open, though. If somebody has a spare ticket(s), I'd rather go that route rather than leave it to chance. Otherwise, I'll be checking daily starting May 1st! :eyes:

Well the drama is officially over. They eventually did set up a waiting list, I got on it right away, they e-mailed me about a week later and I bought a ticket immediately. Received it late last week. So now I am officially a lucky bastard, Mankvill. :D Thanks for the advice. :rocker:

Nope. Going Saturday only. I might try to extend my off-leash time with the wife and get me a pass for Sunday, but I'm playing that one by ear.

I've been hearing a lot of good stuff about Jig-Ai, though. I'm gonna have to check them out some time.

Two minor omissions from Mankvill's list, and one major one:

Trap Them is actually a pretty damn cool new(er) band - they have that buzzsaw guitar tone thing going strong (like Dismember and other bands).

Lair of the Minotaur is also pretty good. They win the award for most "metal" album title for 2008..."War Metal Battle Master". :rocker:
These guys just live to play the music they love, and they have a lot of fun doing it (and it shows in their live performances).

...and how Mankvill could forget the mighty :bowdown: PIG DESTROYER is beyond me (perhaps to the point of being unforgivable...shame, shame :D)

I saw LotM when they opened for Boris last year. They melted many hipsters faces!

Sorry about Pig Destroyer! Too much grind! TOO MUCH GRIND!

I met a friend there (he's an uber-hipster) and after the show, he couldn't stop talking about how he hated LotM. "This isn't a metal show!"

So, less than a week before the show, I'm being told that I can't go. Fuck this bullshit.

Natrlhi, enjoy what you see for me too.

God damn it I'm so pissed.

sneak out

Not so easy.

First I was supposed to room with a friend of mine from North Carolina. All was well, he had a hotel room booked and everything. I haven't talked to him in a few weeks, and his phone is disconnected for some reason. So I talked to my dad about it and he was like "Fuck it, I'll take you".

Then he thought about it, and he realized we don't have the money to go down and get a room, and he's "not comfortable" with me going myself I guess.

I wish he had said all this BEFORE I got my hopes up and bought my ticket. Fuck I wanted to see General Surgery and Bolt Thrower so fucking bad.

Keep buttering up your Dad and he might still take you :D

If the ticket is already purchased, what does he expect you to do with it now? I would try to play that angle, going extra-heavy on how hard it would be to get rid of the ticket since it is an out-of-town show and all (even though you and I both know you could probably sell the damn thing for a profit on eBay or criagslist :eyes::D).

If the guilt trip thing doesn't work, maybe you could offer to help share in the travel expenses somehow - say, by doing some work around the house for free, or earning the money some other way after you get back and paying him back for the gas money, at least. It sounds like you were only planning on going to Saturday night, in which case a hotel room for one night shouldn't exactly break the bank. My brother and I got a room about five or six miles away for around $69.

Either way, just play it cool. If you get pissed, he may not want to go to the trouble to do what you want. If he sees that you are generally bummed, though, I suspect you'll have a better chance. How convincing is your "sad puppy dog" look? :(;)

In short:
:mad: Bad
:snivel: Good

...just some random thoughts. Hope you get to go.

I was going to all three nights.

But, it's not just that. My dad's got Stage IV Lung Cancer, which has caused a few brain tumors - they're gone now, but it's got him permanently "disabled" as far as the government is concerned. We're living on social security checks (I used money from my birthday for the MDF ticket), so we just can't afford it. I was pissed off before, but I guess I understand. Just not fucking happy about it since he never mentioned the possibility of it not being affordable until YESTERDAY.
