<third edit> tix for the vic on friday will go on sale in late november and it's not even close to sold out. updates will be forthcoming
To anyone who received an email from Martyrs saying your saturday martyrs tickets have switched to friday at the vic, first let me say, sorry. i underestimated how many people would want to come to this show and that's the main problem. people trying to buy tix crashed martyrs website, and when it came back up, it accidentally allowed a lot of extra people to buy tickets over and above the martyrs' capacity. so those people who would have seen a "sold out" sign had the website been working properly, have now received a "sold out, but extra show added at the vic friday if you want it, otherwise please accept this refund" email. if you didn't receive this email, it means you purchased your tickets before the event became oversold, which means you still have a spot at martyrs. as everyone can probably understand, there are some people that are very bummed, either because they can only make saturday martyrs and they got the email, or because they still have martyrs tickets and their friends got switched to the vic. i would like to help to make sure as many people can hear talking heads/help puerto rico as possible. at the risk of complicating things further, i'd like to invite anyone to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if i can help. what would be amazing is that anyone who is willing to switch to friday at the vic email me, because you would be helping out someone else who is probably in a bad situation, and that's what these nights are all about. i promise that both nights are basically the same show, we'll play a bunch of your talking heads requests and that's about it. the good news for me at least is that it seems a lot of money is going to puerto rico, and we will try our best to get it to those who need it most. thanks a lot
<edit> this show is sold out, we are adding a show Friday Dec 22 at the Vic, tickets go on sale tentatively nov 15, and there is a separate fb event made for that.
we're waking from our slumber to raise some money so people in puerto rico can have electricty.
donations are gonna go to a few organizations, if you'd like to give but can't make it to the show, thanks so much, here's a link:
