Dallas Venues Find Workarounds As Ticketfly Outage Wrecks Concert Calendars

Quick: locate the nearest aged millennial.

Talent buyers and marketing people who rely on Ticketfly for websites and sales are having a slightly inconvenient afternoon.

Venues’ sites are down and external ticket links have disappeared after the company has apparently been “the target of a cyber incident.” Like a power outage, but promoters can still enjoy perishable snacks and communicate with patrons on Facebook.

Granada staff and -goers are unbothered by the hack. The club switched to Prekindle last July. Club Dada’s website is down but they’re okay for tonight, at least, because Spune is running The Posies show there, and they use Prekindle.

Chris Sakaguchi of Margin Walker Presents points concertgoers to their website for tickets to Nightmares on Wax, Jo Passed, and Speedy Ortiz this weekend.

Remaining tickets for shows at Canton Hall, Trees, and The Bomb Factory, whose websites are all down, will be available at The Bomb Factory’s office onsite, which will open tomorrow at noon. If you’re unsure of a start time, obviously the venues and bands’ social media accounts have you covered.

You can also buy tickets at the door before the shows begin. It’s something we late-stage millennials and our elders used to do. Kind of a rush if there’s any chance of a sell-out, and you can talk to another human you’ve never seen before who likes the same music. Highly recommend.
