Oh, You Rat Soundrel

While the occasional high-demand 9:30 show brings the online ticket purchaser to the hellhole otherwise known as the Virtual Waiting Room, NYC fans who were clamoring for tickets for The Arcade Fire's weeklong stint at the Judson Memorial Church were quickly introduced to the system and its inability to handle network bandwidth of more than say, ten users (yes, including us). We DC-area concertgoers know by now that and its two Pentium II servers (just a shot in the dark) can't handle all that traffic every time a Wilco show rolls into town, but I have to say, I'm honestly not that surprised so many people got locked out of The Arcade Fire's five shows even though the ticket limit was set at two. At least (I hope) you weren't this dude. What a fucking idiot. It wasn't too long ago when The Upstate Life strolled up to the 9:30 box office and bought tickets for their show at $12 a pop. Ah yes, those were the days.
