1st off, plz only post positive suggestions. I don't have time for negative ones. I will ignore them.

Now, here's the situation. Airight, I live in the St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN area. (For you Brits or others not from the USA, that's in the top middle of the USA and touches Canada.) Rage Against the Machine is comin to the Target Center, our main sports/convention center, on September 3rd. And the local radio station is havin a Presale for tickets this Friday. I'm not sure I'll be able to get nough cash for the Presale; so, that's a null issue. However, I still wanna go.

Tickets cost $58 (US dollars, of course) on ticketmaster.com. Now, I have a job. But they don't give me very good hours. (Plus, I pay half of my pay to my parents as rent cuz I'm over 18 and that's the agreement we've worked out in the Summers when I'm not off at college studying. [They pay for college, so I thought it was only fair.]) Also, I don't know if my parents will let me go, as they are very strict despite the fact that I'm 19. (Much to my extreme angst, they don't let me do stuff that they think will damage my soul, lotta religious BS, ya know.) Here's where y'll come in.

I need suggestions on wat to do to get money and how I can convinve my parents to let me go. Or should I lie and tell my parents I'm goin to a friend's house for the night? How can I get my boss to let me work more hours? Or should I jus get nother job, as it is August and many people are goin back to college or high school? (I'm searchin for a new job anyway cuz my parents keep pressurin me to do so; so, to get em off my back, I'm lookin for nother part-time job.) Wat do y'll think?

Tell them you are 19 and only want to go and see one of your favourite bands in the world.

Say these words: "Imagine how much you would want to go Jesus sing political rap-funk-rock songs if he came to town, that's how much I wanna go and a bit more"

Many teen movies have been made based around this very subject. Obviously, you need to lie to your parents, get the money in an illegitimate fashion, and then be caught, and learn a life-lesson.

Does anyone else see the irony here?

So your parents treat you as an adult by charging you rent, but they won't let you go to a concert? Tell them you want to go, and that you are mature enough to go to a concert.

And the money situation, ask your boss for more hours.

Something you definitely need to know

Do you have any guiar gear (like a guitar you don't use(if you have more than one) or an amp that you don't need)? If you do then sell it for at least the total of the ticket cost

I agree with Holy. Try to reason with your parents and your boss.
#13
just ask for some more hours at work and go. If your parents have a problem with, then just explain it to them that you want to go and that there are a lot worse bands out there than RATM.

Tell them that seeing Rage Against the Machine live would be the musical equivelant of seeing Jesus healing a leper and performing other such miracles onstage.

I don't see why you even need to discuss this with your parents if you're 19. Do they always know where you are and where you're going? Damn, and I thought my parents were overprotective...
