What's with the additional service charge on an additional ticket when it's the same transaction?

They charge you more for just buying an extra ticket? Damn bro! AXS gotta chill Yep! 27 bucks for the regular service charge. Fac fee is 4, whatever that means.

Scored one! Ready to dance with Dr awesome!

Now to find a hotel!
This is up there. Like, Star Guitar up there.

One thing--Fuck AXS multiple service charges per ticket. Seriously, per ticket? Should be per order.

isn't this standard? every major ticket vendor has charged an outrageous per-ticket fee plus a nominal per-order fee for as long as I remember. it's one of my favorite things to complain about.

Service fees are standard, sure. But it doesn't make sense for a service fee to be added on a per-ticket basis when there is only one transaction.

If I were to have bought 4 tickets I would be paying an extra $100, and arguably there was no change in the amount of processing or handling on AXS's side.

It's just dishonest--it's ripping people off in a minor way, and no one can do much about it.

Grinds my gears I tell ya.

Ticket "providers" are the most useless shits in the entire universe and are run by people who obviously don't even like music and for whom the day they discovered sex went beyond the missionary position was the most devastating moment of their lives.

you're yet. yet the per-ticket service fee has been normal for as long as I can remember here in USA. worse yet, they are getting to be a larger % of the face value over time.

I will be there with my dancing boots on and dammit I want to be out there in the mix dancing with friends this time to make up for the last SF show where I had to bail early! And I was in the worst mood ever that day! So I’m ready for a San Francisco Chemical re-do!

Mr. Stash and our offspring Connor will also be in attendance. 😆

Can’t waaaaaaaaait!

Pooter texted me this afternoon informing me of this show.

YES, YES, A THOUSAND TIMES YES!

This is 2 days before my birthday.
That would have blown my mind. If I had a mind.

Now we have the Whirls family and the infamous Ryno added to the meetup!

Hey we could do Smugglers cove again for Ryno's pre-bday bash perhaps! .

Whirls! Maybe I forget but why did you have to leave early from the SF show?

Very excited to see all of you again very soon. And for you new faces that I haven't seen yet, I'm looking forward to new conversations and geeking out everything chems related and much more.

Happy for all you folk, looks to be another solid gathering in the making. But really, I'm more upset about potentially missing out on another tiki bar hangout.

I am so freaking excited! We are headed to San Francisco the Friday evening before the festival. I am not sure what our schedules are going to look like or if we will be able to squeeze in a visit to get some tiki umbrella drinks. But meeting inside the festival is a must!

The timing of the last San Francisco show was all wrong for me. It was my fault as I overcommitted in the first place. When I booked my time for San Francisco, I had forgotten about a family milestone event I RSVP’d to earlier which was for the Sunday morning after the show. Anyway, we had a flight out the next morning at a reasonable hour. We’d be tired from the festivities, but it was doable. Fast forward to the day… Aside from my life kind of being a mess at the time, not 5 minutes into the show and we got a message that our flight was cancelled and we were scheduled for another flight that directed us to Seattle, then back to Los Angeles where we’d be touching down *after* the family event 🤦‍♀️ We had to make some calls and reschedule. That really did us in. The folks at the door graciously let us out and re-enter but we had lost a good 15 - 20 minutes of the show. Once back in, we had lost our seats and had to relocate further up. I couldnt even see my forum people out on the floor. :( My husband was having a hard time with the crowding and the gargantuan cloudbursts of San Francisco’s finest herbal blends, and we now had a much earlier flight we had to catch that we were stressing over. It was just sad. We left shortly after Golden Path. So that’s my sad story. The end, lol!!

I hope to make it up and get a chance to properly enjoy a Chems SF show this time!! And I can’t wait to see some familiar faces and meet new ones too. ❤️

Wait...what makes me so infamous....

Funny part is, I haven't drank in almost a year and a half (Feb 2021). But I'm not averse to returning to Smugglers. Can we let errol know ahead of time that we going to hopefully put a bug in the ears of certain people....

even better is I'm 23 this time, so If (and that's a fat IF, because of money & work) I'm able to, I can join y'all this time.

Oh crap!  :o

Just fyi I know what the definition of the word is, but actually I was referring to this definition of 'infamous' given by the three amigos! Their kind of my heroes!  ;D

Damn! I didn't know you guys went through all that crap, especially the return flight. I would've had an anxiety attack if it ever came down to that.

Whatever I can do to assist or maximize your enjoyment for the coming show let me know. And that pretty much goes for everybody that's tagging along.

Currently practicing dancing and jumping prior to the show. I'm out of shape!
