News Beastie Boys to Play Pre-Squatch Show at the Croc
posted by May 22 at 16:08 PMon
The rumors are true: The Beastie Boys are playing a show this Friday night at the Crocodile.
Tickets go on sale at 5 pm today at Ticketmaster online. They cost $25—not bad at all—and the show is all-ages.
The scene will be a total zoo, I’m sure, and I’d venture that the Boys will do a short set of their new instrumentals. But damn, it’ll be fun as hell. I saw them play a fan club-only set in Santa Cruz in October of last year—700 people, sold-out minutes after tickets went on sale—and they killed it. Tickets will be hard to come by but probably worth the effort.
UPDATE: Tickets actually go on sale tomorrow at 4 p.m. at Ticketmaster.com.
DOUBLE UPDATE: According to an anonymous source, the Beastie Boys’ contract rider requires “an obscene amount” of almond butter.
