« on: November 20, 2014, 02:34:36 PM »

Edit 28 September 2019 - both GUIDES needs minor updating.
Please PM/email me or post suggestions for improvements on this post.

   you might also have a look at
   GUIDE: will there be a signing ? (aka meet-n-greet)
   !!!


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):
* For the shows in Europe & the United Kingdom, try this Facebook group:
   https://www.facebook.com/groups/241217180090327/

* 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
  https://www.facebook.com/pg/scarletsailsband/events

  Shows that are over (since they started being listed on the Farceborg)
  https://www.facebook.com/amandapalmer/events?key=past
  https://www.facebook.com/brianviglionemusic/events?key=past
  https://www.facebook.com/dresdendolls/events?key=past
  https://www.facebook.com/pg/scarletsailsband/events[/url?key=past

* 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, you can post your asks & offers on
   https://www.reddit.com/r/amandapalmer/

* 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.

 ** Try TicketSwap to buy & sell tickets:
     https://www.ticketswap.com/search?query=Amanda%20Palmer
     If the show for your ticket isn't there, add the listing for the tickets you want to sell.
     A ticketswap admin needs to approve it first, for it to appear on the websight.\
     But you can copy-n-paste the link elsewhere.  Note: approvals usually only happen in the daytime.

* 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/Buddy/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 the venue's Security staff 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.

Hi all!  I ended up with an extra pair of tickets to Amanda's NYC show -- anyone know anyone who is interested in going?  I'm in a LDR with my girlfriend from Denmark, and I bought these tickets before we planned her current trip here.  I live in DC and she gets on the plane to go back home this weekend, so we can't make NYC work (and I already talked her into going to the Philly show with me on the 6th the day that she flew in!)

If anyone knows anyone who might be interested, please let me know, I would be so grateful!!  I can transfer the tickets through Ticketmaster and all that good stuff so that you can know they're legit.  <3  Send me an e-mail at jaimewojdowski at gmail dot com, since I check that often.

I'm a Patron, if that makes any difference!

(Also, can't tell if this is the wrong place to post this!  Let me know if it is and I'll take it down!)
