Re: guestlist vs. tickets
|Originally posted by msilin |
So a lot of times on these forums I see events being posted at really high volume clubs like Avalon, Marquee, etc. and I see people post "tickets? nah, I'll just get on the discount guestlist!"
May I ask why this is preferable? I always arrive at Avalon and am very surprised by how many people there are in line even at 10pm. I walk in with ZERO line, get my ticket scanned, and am on the dancefloor 2 minutes later. I'm a little confused as to why you would do the guest list.
Is it because you're not sure you want to go, and want to keep your options open? I kind of get that, I guess, but even if you decide to go last minute, waiting in line for an hour or more to get in via the guestlist just doesn't sound like fun. On top of that, it usually closes at 10 or 11 so if you're not at the front of the line by that point, you're screwed.
So again, could someone perhaps explain the logic to me? Because I always buy a ticket... but maybe I'm wrong.
its been a years since i've seen a discount guestlist line take more than 10-20 minutes to get in via. No question buying early for Avalon if you are 100% sure you are going is best, but if you aren't positive you are going that night the disc. guest list is the best way to go IMO, especially since you aren't out any $ if you can't go and had bought a presale. Also, from my experience many clubs honor the disc. guest list as long as you were in line as of the cutoff time.
