Is locally based web phenomenon and recent newscorp acquisition MySpace really only two years old? Gracious. They grow up so fast. One of the single most popular, unattractive and youthful websites in the world is hosting a two year anniversary concert at freakin' Dodger Stadium this weekend from 5 PM to 11 PM featuring Dashboard Confessional, The All-American Rejects and Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World and proceeds going to Hurrican Katrina Relief. Tickets went on sale earlier this month with only a limited number being available online. Well, 1500 more tickets (priced at $10) were made available through Vans.com today but you know those crazy MySpace kids - they are quicker than most to jump on the good stuff before you can get your grubby paws on them so act fast.
