A few latecomers/people hanging around the El Rey hours later also got tickets.
I gave it my best shot, complete postmortem of my efforts including holding a ticket that said Echoplex April 27th for 2 months can be found here. At least I didn't eat my $20 Blood Red Shoes ticket.
On a more positive note, 8 days outside the rehearsal studio recounted here, best to scroll to the first report and read upwards.
