All right: did any of you dbags get Googamooga tickets?
Some background: Googamooga is a new festival created by the folks at Bonnaroo that's happening right in our backyards in Prospect Park in May. It fell flat on its face this afternoon when they tried to give away free tickets online via EventBrite. As everyone was waiting in online lines to register for tickets, some were allowed to "register," only to have the site crash or serve up an error message. An hour and a half before they opened up the registration at 12pm, they're saying tickets are sold out.
Hey, here's an idea. If you're going to call yourself "Great" in your event's title, you might want to make sure you've got everything covered before you launch. Just a little suggestion between me and you, Googs.
We've reached out to Googamooga to get the scoop, so we'll keep you posted.
Personally, I've drawn two conclusions from this:
1. Googamooga's ticketing system is as stupid as its name.
2. You can go to Prospect Park anytime you want, except May 19 and 20.
Did anyone actually get tickets to this thing, or what?
