Barenaked in Ottawa

Yay! I’m getting good at cracking Ticketmaster’s presale codes. Last year I got advance Rush tickets by searching the Rush fan site. Earlier this year, I guessed the presale code for Spamalot tickets by looking at the presale codes for other venues (it was “grail”). And just now, after a rigourous course of algorithms, analysis and contemplation, I cracked the super-complex presale code for the Barenaked Ladies’ Snacktime concert in Ottawa on December 13. Tickets go on sale to the general public tomorrow, but if you want yours today, try “snacktime”! Brilliant code breaker, aren’t I? CSIS is sure to come calling for my services any day now.

The kids will be beside themselves. Snacktime is still our #1 favourite kids CD and I’ve been a long-time BNL fan. The only thing better than BNL live in Ottawa is BNL live in Ottawa for the kids at Christmas time!

thank you!!
I just bought tickets for me and my favourite BNL fan!
But, since we’re (nominally) grown-ups, we’re shelling out for the evening show.
Once again I bow to your greatness.

Excellent work Watson! I did the same thing with them last time they came through Winnipeg. The password then was “ladies room”.

Cheerios and Baby Mum Mums have powers untold. So do Farley’s Biscuits.

Use The Force!

Ooh!!! Have fun! I love BNL and MM thinks they’re a blast.

I didn’t realize BNL had a kids’ CD. We are huge fans of They Might Be Giants kids’ CD/DVD. (My 2 year old sings the ABCs backwards courtesy of them!)

Must check it out.

I missed the pre-sale by 5 min (didn’t know they stopped at 10!), but managed to get decent seats the next day. Thanks for the reminder – maybe we’ll see you there. šŸ™‚
