We paid $92 after fees for the nosebleeds. I'm talking top balcony, row U. A friend of mine told me that after the first 15 minutes of presale the only available tickets were $180. This is insane. The Paramount is nice but it ain't that nice. Kraftwerk was $65 and I was front row. In 2010 Sufjan was $30.
Last time Sigur Ros were in town (not-Sasquatch) they played at Benaroya fucking Hall and it was $30-$40.
Facebook has that stupid "On this Day" feature I keep clicking on and I found a conversation from a few years ago arguing about how $175 was a little steep for Sasquatch. Now it's $350 and neither of those prices include camping, and the lineups are remarkably worse.
I don't pretend to know what's happening to the live music industry and general economics mystifies me but this kind of insane price gouging is driving me further and further away from wanting to be a part of the scene in any way.

We come from Minnesota every year, and the first year we bought a big tent from someone on Craigslist in Seattle for 20 dollars . We raged so hard that we broke the door. So we threw it away after the fest (RIP tent)
