Since Meg recently posted about Columbus concert venues , I thought I'd share a tip for getting tickets.

A couple weeks ago I went to THE LC to pick up tickets for Passion Pit, who will be playing there on March 31. Unfortunately, as I walked up to the box office, I looked up to see "SOLD OUT" next to the band's name on the marquee. Slightly despondent, I turned around to walk home.

Then I realized I might still have a shot at tickets through the ticket agency Dream Seats . I called them up immediately, and was able to obtain some of their last tickets for the show.

Dealing with Dream Seats was very easy - I was able to pay for my tickets over the phone and then picked them up at my convenience at their office in Grandview Heights. They presented the tickets to me when I arrived to prove they were legit, then put them in an envelope with my receipt for safekeeping until the show.

Keep Dream Seats in mind - even if your favorite show is sold out, they just might be able to help get you there.
