this is pretty good, but why the beef against printing tickets - it makes me feel justified in my office drone job! because we have a printer, see. and really, most of the time you can just open the pdf on your phone and they can scan it. this is mostly use for venues with separate 'will call' and 'already having tickets' lines (all of them) and for people who hate standing in lines (all of us). also you nailed it on festivals, except you left out "experience of now showering AND BEING ON DRUGS for a week." festivals, especially where can camp (hi coachella/sasquatch) have their own unique beauty when you're 20, but when you're old enough to go to a real venue you realize that you're 10 times more likely to have a good show experience at a place where: the crowd specifically wants to see that band (as opposed to having just wandered by a tent at 3 p.m. and Battles happened to be on), and there's a sound guy who works there 250 days a year and you're not outside. JUST SAYIN.
