Did you get your ticket to Smashing Pumpkins Saturday morning? If you didn’t, you’re not alone. According to One Percent Productions, customers snatched up available tickets within a minute after they were made available online (with all sales final within 20 minutes). No surprise there. The $50 GA tickets to the Oct. 11 show at Slowdown are now being offered at TicketExpress for $125 each. How high will they go on eBay?

Tonight at The Waiting Room, Matt Cox and The Willards are performing as part of the 2nd Annual Booze, Blues and BBQ event, sponsored by Food & Spirits Magazine. Your $15 will get you barbecue from 10 area restaurants, while the money will go toward helping provide scholarships to students at the Institute for the Culinary Arts at Metro Community College. Dining starts at 6, music starts at 7:30.

  • $50 for BC singing Pumpkins karaoke, eh? Or is it a Pumpkins tribute band with BC? Sign him up for next year’s Red Sky while he’s here…
