  19. Ns Followers Says:

  20. Rebecca Says:

    I’m confused…

    In the post here it says there will be “free booze”.. but on the RSVP for Portland and Seattle it only mentions “drink specials”.. I’m interested in coming for the music but I’m also on a tight budget (I’ll buy the album).. Can someone please clarify whether there will be free booze or not?

    Thanks!

  21. Brad Says:

    For Rebecca – For legal (insurance-related) reasons, in some states you can’t technically advertise “free booze”. So the alternative is to advertise “drink specials”. Now, I can’t say for sure, but odds are the beer is free (or at least free for a limited time) in Seattle.

    That said, it shouldn’t be the potential for cheap/free drinks that gets you to this thing, it should be a chance to hear this freakin’ amazing album ;-)

  22. Ian Muttoo Says:

    Please come to Toronto!

  23. B Says:

    So, do we need tickets or something to get into these? Or can we just show up at the appointed time/place and that’s it?

  24. Robby Says:

    B, each listing should have an RSVP email address.

  25. B Says:

    So, if we never heard back from the RSVP address, we won’t be able to attend? That was why I asked. I wasn’t sure whether or not I should keep sending out e-mails. Thanks for the heads-up, though. Better than showing up and being turned away! ;)

  26. Wendy Says:

    So can under 18s get into events with free booze? :P If a NY or NJ event comes up that would be great.

  27. Heather Mac Says:

    no tickets, just rsvp, pending on if it’s a gmail acct or the onion, you may or may not get an automated response, but you WILL be able to get in, no worries. and FREE entry! only thing to worry about is CAPACITY (pending no your city/venue size) – so get there on time..
