No Intermission Tour

  Amanda's Official Page for this tour:
  https://nointermission.amandapalmer.net/


Lodging:
* You can ask for a place to stay on this Facebook group:
  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1624240987858711/
(might also check the map in that group's Announcements.)
* You might also check https:/couchsurfing.com.
* All the places in the next section.


Tickets/Rides/Info/Pre-show Meetups/Concert Buddy/etc.
(Always best to buy tickets early):
* You can ask for or offer anything for each show on the Facebook pages for that show.
  You might also check all the posts for a pre-show meetup.

  Find the Facebook event page for that show at
  https://www.facebook.com/amandapalmer/events?key=events
  https://www.facebook.com/brianviglionemusic/events?key=events
  https://www.facebook.com/dresdendolls/events?key=events

  Shows that are over (since they started being listed on the Farceborg)

* You can also post on Amanda's Official Facebook group:
  https://www.facebook.com/groups/afpland/
  The Unofficial AFPatreons group:
  https://www.facebook.com/groups/414049798762802/

  At the end of the longest announcement in Unofficial:
  https://www.facebook.com/groups/414049798762802/permalink/1206727636161677/
  is a link to a guide of groups for AFPatreons.
  At the end of that guide is a list of regional/geographic Facebook groups.
  Your show could be in one of those regions.
  One of those regions might be along your route,
  if you are looking for people to car-pool with you to your show.

  Any of these Facebook groups might have a group event for a pre-show meetup.

* On reddit, Hayley has set up an ask thread for the THERE WILL BE NO INTERMISSION tour:  https://www.reddit.com/r/amandapalmer/comments/avzqjn/the_official_there_will_be_no_intermission_tour/

* Call the box office daily

* Check the web site selling tickets daily

* Try the http://craigslist.com regional site the venue is in,
  as well as ticket selling websites
  (e.g.  StubHub, https://www.twickets.live/ (claims to be fan-to-fan). etc.)
  better to sell on these, than buy on them. 
  be careful about scalpers & thieves.
  a far number of fake tickets are sold.

* On twitter, you can also tweet Amanda, The Dresden Dolls, Brian Viglione, or Scarlet Sails.

* Here on the shadowbox (Note, that the shadowbox can only be used by those who
   already have accounts, as account creation is broken):
 ** find or create the show's page on this board: 
     http://www.theshadowbox.net/forum/index.php?board=5.0 
     (Note that the shadowbox is not very active, due to account creation being broken.)
 ** you can offer or ask for a ticket to any Amanda/Brian/D.Dolls/Scarlet.Sails show 
      in the thread "Need a ticket? - Have a ticket?": 
      http://www.theshadowbox.net/forum/index.php?topic=141.0


IF YOU DON'T find the Tickets/Ride/Couch/etc. you need:
go to the show, repeat this until you have the ticket(s) you need

* Ask at the Box Office (don't trust security to know)

* Go to the front of the line, ask for what you need,
  walk a few people,
  ask again,
  repeat until the end of the line.  That is, ASK, as Amanda details in her Ted Talk & book.

* At the end of the line, go back to the box office,
  then start of the line. repeat.

Avoid scalpers - their tickets might not be legit.

A sign doesn't hurt, but also ask verbally.
Being dressed for the show or to brigade helps.

You'll at least meet a lot of awesome new friends.

One reason this usually works,
is that Amanda/Brian/D.Dolls/Scarlet.Sails fans buy tickets early.
Then something prevents them from coming.

Always best to buy tickets early.
