How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The ticket says 8:00 show and I left with my guests at 10:15 with no sign of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. I waited 40 minutes in the "will call" line because there was only one person working it and his computer went down. All other lines had no wait. The event was not well attended. There was a series of introductory acts where people were doing floor acrobatics and really lame magic. I kept falling asleep. I have contacted American Express and asked for a refund. When I buy a ticket for an 8pm show on a week night I expect that the show will go on somewhat close to the posted time. Certainly within an hour. The venue was cool but I felt like we were being used as an experiment to see how long people will wait.
