Weenie Roast Tickets: Go to the Concert or Pay Mortgage?

KROQ Weenie Roast Ticket Prices Insane

KROQ has ruined my life.  Well, at least for a couple of minutes.

I lost a bid for tickets for Weenie Roast.  I lost on eBay.  The winning bid: $2,225.  Click here to see the auction.

That is insane.  $2,225 is a lot of money for a pair of tickets and backstage passes.  That is mortgage money.  That is a semester at college money.

KROQ, the radio station, can not do anything about this. In fact, the sign that the auction went high is a sign that KROQ is doing a great job at creating an A+ event.  KIIS-FM' wango tango didn't generate any buzz at all.You could buy orch seats all day long for face value.  KROQ Weenie Roast is the standard by which all other radio station concerts are measured by.

But, what can a concertgoer do?

$2,225 is a lot of F-ing money.

My life is ruined for the next 5 minutes.

Oh wait, maybe I can be caller 20 and win ticket!

Wait, WTF am I thinking!
