I just bought tickets for the two Sleater-Kinney shows at the El Rey here in Los Angeles from everyone’s “favorite” legal scalper, ticketmaster.com. Fifteen dollar face value on each ticket. Twenty-five dollars after Ticketmaster has had its way with you. Sixty-six percent markup?! WTF?! Loan sharks offer better interest rates.
But don’t worry. They’re not a monopoly. That would be illegal.
