Thank you Northwest Arcade Rentals!!!

We had a great launch party on February 17 to celebrate our new services and updated website launch in our hometown of Seattle, Washington. We partied with over 400 of Brown Paper Tickets event producers, performers and friends and one of the elements that everyone in attendance really enjoyed were the vintage arcade and carnival games provided by Michael of Northwest Arcade Rentals.

The High Strike game was a big hit with folks hanging out to the bitter end to have a go at it. It’s harder than it looks. Here’s a shot of me after I finally hit the bell (after multiple attempts, I might add). Michael coached me through the proper High Strike technique.

Ticketing Laws in Nevada

On January 3, 2011, Clark County, Nevada Commissioner, Susan Brager, proposed amendments to local scalping laws. Brown Paper Tickets was asked to review the proposal and write a response. Scalpers who raise prices to gouge ticket-buyers perpetuate an antiquated and unfair model. Unfortunately, the Clark County amendments do little to prevent this practice and instead grant greater privileges to businesses over “average-Joe” ticket-buyers. We cannot support the proposed amendments.

You may read our entire response to the Clark County Board of Commissioners below. Read the rest of this entry »
