So if you try to use your fake ticket at the box office it won’t work, sorry.

Here’s a close-up from from Cornell Banard:

How can you tell a fake from a real ticket? I don’t think you can.

Many many fakes are out there:

@KimKardashian I got sold a fake ticket to outside lands fest to see Kanye!! Can you help me????

What White People Don’t Like:

Waiting around by boxoffice watching all manner of teary-eyed white 20-somethings stomp away screaming on phones abt fake tix

What can be done?

Don’t buy tickets from scalpers. Judging by the amount of tears at the entry gate, they are almost all fake. Duh.

So, choose wisely.

(You can always try to go over or under The Wire, but that kind of thing probably won’t work.)

Sneaking Into Outside Lands 2014: It Can Be Done, But It’s Hard – Remembering the Old Days, When It Was Easy

Friday, August 8th, 2014

[UPDATE: You can always try your luck with the scalpers but there’s a huge wave of pretty good looking fakes out there this year, sorry. Oh, and here’s a sampling of the citations the SFPD has issued to people getting caught trying to sneak in on this first day of the 2014 event:

Ouch!]

Back in the day, back in the aughts, all you had to do to sneak into Outside Lands was deal with just one eight-foot cyclone fence.

You had the option of going under the wire or over the wire.

Here’s under. See how that worked? Easy peasy.

And here’s an example of over. This is called the bum rush:

You could get away with this kind of thing a few years ago.

But nowadays, things have changed. You won’t be able find these weaknesses in 2014.

Oh, your friend Badger’s working on the inside this year and he’s going to let you and your buds in?

Well, that might work.

But the days of a single chain link fence between you and your tunes are over at the Outside Lands

Just saying, once again.

Friday, February 14th, 2014

You know, I’m pretty, I’m popular, so I thought I’d be a cinch to join this new outfit and take over the joint. But then I read the fine print and It’s all, “up and coming,” and “professional,” and “young,” and I’m like WTF?

Here’s what it looks like from inside.

Sometimes these birds land in the water due to engine trouble and then the Coast Guard tows them to shore.

It’s a living, I s’pose…
