    Mad respect to the guys for tracking down scalpers and cancelling those tickets. I feel like you never see artists do that.

    I hate scalpers with a passion. One thing I've been curious of though.. if scalping was outright banned everywhere, would that mean a real fan who has a last-minute emergency can't sell their ticket to another fan? I wonder if there's any real way to navigate around that.

    they could allow resell websites where you ONLY sell at face value

    Very true, that definitely seems like the best option imo. I have no problem with someone not wanting their ticket to go to waste while also not eating the cost of it

    Looking for 1 Saturday NYC ticket. Can pay above face value to make it worth your time.

    If anyone knows of a hookup on a ticket for the March 29th date, let me know. I know it sounds ridiculous to ask here, but figured I’d give it a shot.

    You guys think there will be an opener? Multiple? Or moreso presented as a night with The Format long set, some talking etc.

    Couldn’t get away to try and get tickets, sounds like it wouldn’t have mattered anyway.

    I tried getting my wife a ticket to go with me for the Friday show - it seemed like it was sold out the second I got on there right when the clock struck 12PM.

    Yeah, for Chicago I had tab open for Eventbrite and one for Hellomerch. Tried to get four tickets immediately at noon from Eventbrite and it went searching for them for several minutes, kicked me out and gave me the choice of one ticket then kicked me out and said it was unavailable.

    Had a dream last night that the opener for the shows was announced. It was a band called “January.” I so hope it’s this Thai band I subsequently found on Spotify after searching.

    Can we just talk about how good their first EP was real quick?

    I way prefer its version of Let's Make This Moment A Crime, and At The Wake is beautiful

    So I've been listening to nothing but The Format lately, and this is probably gonna be an unpopular opinion, but I+L holds up so much better than DP for me. I still love that second album, but there's a timelessness to the first record that just keeps me listening to it on repeat.

    For me it’s been kind of the opposite. I’m a huge I+L fan but since the reunion started brewing I’ve been listening to dog problems non stop.

    Both albums are fantastic but I was listening to Interventions earlier and it really is a good record.

    Timeless is an excellent descriptor. If I + L came out today and I had never heard of The Format I’d like it as much as I did when it’s was released years ago. Doesn’t feel like a debut.

    I think all of Nate's music has that quality. Aim & Ignite still sounds fresh and it came out while I was still in middle school

    It's weird, I wasn't super into I + L compared to Dog Problems in high school, but lately I've been listening to I + L way more
