Radiohead is in town and tonight is their second and last show at the Hollywood Bowl. If you're scrambling around to get tickets, you're probably seeing Craigslist posts like this asking for $700 a ticket in the Garden boxes.

Most tickets seem to be going above face value in the $150-200 range and there are a good number of people begging for tickets and putting "$1" in their headlines. And there are people asking face value or best offer because a friend bailed (what? going to Radiohead alone is some kind of terrible experience?) or they are poor and need money.

Then, naturally, there are postings like this:

Any adventurous girl want to go to Radiohead tonight? - $35 (West Hollywood) So by adventurous I mean I know a way to sneak into the show tonight. It's possible, but takes a certain type of person to do this. One with guts, nerves of steel and some adventure in your soul. I was up there last night and figured out how to do it. It's not like if we get caught anything really is going to happen as it can be covered up as being "stupid" and "confused" as to where we should be. It might not work, but I think it will. You got what it takes? Oh, send a pic as will I.

If you went last night, how did it go?
