You Could Still Go!

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

One of the cheaper championship games that I can remember… but unless you’re a die-hard Seahawks or Patriots fan, maybe not. (Game is in Arizona so you know the weather will be nice)

Remember, we will be at Shark Club watching it all go down on Sunday. Kickoff is just after 430pm. See ya there :)

Super Bowl Of Betting

Posted on by J.C. Coutts

Sunday is the big day!

The big game features the Seattle Seahawks taking on the (cheating) New England Patriots.

Whenever it comes to the big game, it’s always fun to make a wager.

Shawna and I have made a wager. If I lose, I’ve decided to do what Nikki Sixx has promised…show up naked with a guitar:

nikki

Mind you, I’m going for a Pats win…so one way or another you’re going to see a guy with a guitar naked. I hope for your sake, it’s Nikki Sixx.

Shawna is betting on the Seahawks to take the game. So should the Patriots be victorious Shawna will be locked in to a studio and forced to listen to RUSH on repeat for an hour (she hates Geddy Lee).

If you want to bet on more than just the outcome of the game, you can bet on everything from who wins the coin toss to which team will take the first penalty.

Country Livin’

I’m just going to leave this here. I think it’s perfect for someone who wants to live like one of the boys, but has a sensitive side for the environment. Clay shootin’ with the good ol’ boys, and she won’t even be mad when you show up with flowers.

“Flower Shell is a 12-gauge shotgun shell that is loaded with flower seeds instead of shot. When paired with a shotgun, Flower Shell can be used to forcefully scatter seeds or blast them into the ground. Flower Shell was designed by Per Cromwell of Studio Total, a Swedish innovation studio. Cromwell is raising funds for the project on Indiegogo.”

Get Her Out of My Event!

Posted on by Cam Skip

When people are applauding while you’re being dragged away, you should probably realize how annoying you’re being. This lady got kicked out of the US open after being a nuisance to EVERYONE around her.

Have you ever gotten kicked out of an event? Why?

The Power of the Beard

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

You are probably already aware of the power the beard holds. Kevin has been no stranger to talking about how his life has changed since growing one.

But this, is an extreme example of how deceiving a beard can really be. Lots of people have been talking about how Zach Galifianakis looks all weird since he lost even more weight.

He just shaved people. Calm yourselves.

LOZ Vegas

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

rocklogo_smaller

It sounds like Ozzy isn’t slowing down just yet. Busy planning his concert production to debut in Las Vegas this Halloween (was supposed to start this year but it couldn’t be put together in time)

Osbourne himself says he was watching 60 minutes and saw Bruce Springsteen talking about how much fun he has, and how he likes doing what he’s doing… he agrees and says it’s a challenge for him.

On top of the Vegas shows, Ozzy has hinted at a new solo album and of course following up Black Sabbath’s 13 album later this year.

And if that we’re enough for 66 year old rock star Ozzfiesta is happening at the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico the end of May. A 5 day festival with bands, questions with ozzy, comedy and a charity golf tourney.

Dude must love it.

Pro Tip: How to buy tickets online

Posted on by J.C. Coutts

We’ve seen a HUGE number of concerts come through the Peace Region in the last few months.

Some shows can sell out VERY quickly. When this happens, scalpers AKA Scum Of The Earth – will try to capitalize on fans.

I caught one guy on Kijiji today trying to sell a pair of tickets to Volbeat’s show at Revolution Place for $500 for the PAIR!

Here’s the thing…the show ISN’T sold out…in fact you can STILL get seats on the floor for $116 for the pair – a savings to you of $384!!!

volbeat

Here’s some tips if you want to score tickets to a ig show and possibly avoid scalpers fees:

1. Watch for pre-sales, fan club sales, facebook sales, etc. Chances are you can always score a pre-sale (we usually send out passwords if you’re part of the ROCKstar VIP club).

2. Use multiple devices. Not only can you buy tickets for Ticketmaster or Live Nation through their website, you can also use their mobile app (which is faster sometimes!).

3. If you miss out on tickets, be patient. Venues will usually open up a block of tickets the day before or day of the event. Just keep an eye on the web or call the box office.

4. If patience isn’t your thing, some ticket companies have their own re-seller webpages (Ticketmaster) that makes it safe and secure to purchase tickets online. One of my favorites is Stub Hub. I’ve scored tickets to many sporting events – usually BELOW face value.

5. Kijiji is good but is still very risky. First of all make sure the show is actually sold out through the official ticket place first to avoid scalpers fees (and to avoid the genius above). As there is a high-risk of fraud always remember the rule of thumb: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

6. Sometimes idiots will post photos of their tickets on Kijiji. This is dumb for two reasons. Firstly, it would be very easy to make a copy of the ticket using the bar code (most large venues scan tickets). Secondly, if the scalper is selling tickets they won you’ll know either by seeing the price on the tickets as $0.00 or by seeing the word “COMP”. If you see this, guess what, they didn’t pay anything for the seats. Why should you pay them face value or even a scalpers price?

7. If you do win tickets and plan to sell them, technically it’s illegal. Tickets that are prizes have no cash-value and are non-transferable. Best to use them or give them back to the radio station. We’ll make sure they go to someone that really wants them.
