I'm going to see Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (who kick several thousand asses) in a couple weeks.

I already had two tickets to this sold out show, and on the radio today they were giving away a pair to the 93rd texter.
I thought I may as well give it a shot just for kicks and won.
I now have four tickets, but am only going with one person, so I don't know what to do with the other two.

Anybody in the pit have experience selling tickets online?
Could I sell them out front before the show legally?
Anything else I could do with them?

Just step yourself outside, and look up at the stars above.

As long as it's for face value, then it's not scalping. Put up an ad in Craigslist.

It's a date, but none of my friends like or know the band anyway.

Sell them in front of the concert, for face value.

Fap on them.

Give them to a friend.

Attempt to sell online.

Wipe with them.


So many possibilities.

Can I legally charge as much as I want online?
Sorry for lack of knowledge on this nonsense.

You can try to, nothing illegal about that. But trying to sell them at, or near the venue for more than the price is.

Advice from the pit on the subject is useless cause the law varies from location to location. Ask your local law enforcement

Oh, lol, I went off your location.

Where in Texas?

And I just looked up the states laws, not to hard with Google.

Texas has no restrictions, minus selling within 100 yards of the venue IIRC. But that might not even apply to us.

Just moved back last week, forgot to change it. Thanks though.
I'm in Austin.

Awesome, Austin is an really cool city.

I see scalpers at every concert I go to, so I don't even think most cops even try to stop them if it IS illegal to sell at the venue.

Cool, cool.
And I saw the $15 tickets on craigslist from $40-60 a piece.
So if I don't get rid of them in the next couple weeks I could just try selling them at the show.
