If you were listening to 107.7 the End at 7:50 am this morning, then you heard the news—Death Cab for Cutie are playing a surprise show tomorrow night at the Showbox Sodo and tickets go on sale at 8 am this morning.

Then from the comment thread:

Can't tell if it's sold out, most likely

Yeah! Let's all pay 3x the face value to see a "big" band at a "small" venue that neither feels small, sounds small, nor has particularly good sightlines or an intimately-scaled stage!

You know, so we can say we were there.

Totally worth it!

"If you were listening to 107.7 the End at 7:50 am this morning. . . ." By this morning, do you mean "in 1994"?

Kind of shitty to scalp tickets for a benefit concert for schoolchildren.
