If you haven't heard by now, Senses Fail and The Early November are doing a free show down at Rutgers University. Only way a non student can get in is if I go in with a student. The show is February 8th at the Rutgers Student Center. Any students out there wanna hook me up? Sorry, anal is NOT an option. I do, however, work for Live Nation and could hook you up with a free pass for almost any Live Nation NYC venue. Venues include Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theater, Roseland Ballroom, Hammerstein Ballroom and Santos Party House. If you want to hold out until the summer, then PNC is also an option. My seats over there are usually in the 200 section..no lawn tickets. If interested, please let me know in this thread or PM me. Thanks guys!

Here's the Facebook event page if you wanted to take a look: https://www.facebook.com/events/407521659339193/

Oh, man. The perks to going to school in New Jersey.

I am still so glad I don't live there.

It's not really that bad where I live. I know you guys don't have any sales tax. I pay 3.5% because I live in a "poverty stricken neighborhood". Works for me lol.

Wait - another question - how does Rutgers check student IDs? My friend doesn't go to Rutgers anymore (didn't graduate) but still has an ID.....

Well the way they did it at my old college's venue, they just crossed your name off a list of current students.

I was hoping I could get a hookup to the TCNJ Circa Survive show, but no luck.

Good luck here, extra benefit is you don't need to sit through Senses Fail floundering around. I've seen some great RU shows (Jack's Mannequin, The Gaslight Anthem, Minus the Bear, MC Lars..). They have a variety of spots to host concerts.

I don't mind seeing SF. I'm sure they'll play some new songs. If I don't get in, I'm sure both will play Skate and Surf. I know Senses Fail is all but confirmed but I'm not too sure about TEN.

Yeah at my college they just looked at your ID, didn't scan or anything. My friend claims they just look at the ID at Rutgers.



Ah got it - didn't know Kearny had 3.5% sales tax. Loving the new Wawa there!

Yeah the new Wawa is pretty awesome! Better sandwiches than the Quick Chek. I saw that you're from the 201 area. What town/city?

I don't know, that sounds a lot like something a murderer would say.

I mean, do any murderers admit to murdering?

I'm in Hoboken - that's why when you said 3.5% sales tax I immediately thought of Jersey City haha. Just moved in the fall. Originally from central jersey, so when my coworker told me about the new Wawa there, I celebrated. Parsippany is too far haha.

Oh Hoboken, I used to spend a lot of time there when I had my job last year. Always loved going to Bahama Mama's in the summer on Thursdays I think. Whatever day it was with dollar beers. Is everything working finally? I know the storm fucked the whole town up including the PATH station.

haha yeah - the dollar beers are great. Everything's pretty much up and running now from what i've noticed - some businesses closed however. The PATH is finally back to being 24 hours and all the lines are up and running. Not sure how some people are now who were greatly affected (I just know some people whose cars went underwater and had their apartments flooded) are doing now, however.

Yeah one of my former co-workers had a house down 2 blocks away from Washington Ave and she said that her car, basement and garage all had water damage. I mean it really sucks for all of that to be messed up. I have a house down in Ortley Beach (next to Seaside), that got whacked during Sandy. The whole first floor was screwed up. Guess how much money my family got from FEMA, the Red Cross and all of these "disaster funds"? Not a dime. To be honest, I have a ton of neighbors who's primary house got nailed and they didn't receive a penny from these companies. I have no idea where all that donated money is going. End rant lol

I can not get you into this show, but after reading this I would very much like to be your friend.

I'm always looking for concert buddies lol.

Yeah, I'm close to Washington Ave too - she must have lived downtown. Nothing?! That's horrible. Should have gotten something.

Yeah I didn't get a dime. Found out one of my current boss's friend's house was in Seaside and completely demolished from the storm. She received a check for $25. That's a joke! I guess your house needs to be washed away in order to get some compensation.

$25?! Yeah, that'll totally help for a new house.

One of my friends has a basement level apartment and lost everything - I should probably ask her if she got anything.

Probably $10 and a coupon for Lowes lol.

For sure man I've been doing a lot of solo shows lately and they're bringing me down ha

Same here man. I get free passes to shows all the time but I choose not to go if I'm stuck going by myself. Working is one thing but standing awkward in the audience is another haha. I'm working Further Seems Forever on Friday night and Tuesday I'm working the Dead Kennedy's. I got an extra pass to see Emmure/Whitechapel with Unearth on Monday if you wanna go. I just want to go and see all the bros and scene kids fight in the mosh pit lol. Plus, I enjoy Unearth to be honest.
