SunGod guest tickets were “sold out” before Box Office even opens this morning. At 7 am the line had stretched down to Round Table Pizza. By 8 am, Box Office staff told people in line that the 150 remaining tickets had been essentially “sold out” as temporary vouchers were given to the first 150 people in line, essentially insuring that no students beyond that point could get tickets.
The tickets will officially be sold out within 30 minutes of publication of this article.
How did these students get to be so lucky? Most of them camped out in PC, and some had been there since 1 am.
All the blame for this fiasco lies with the UCSD Associated Students Concerts and Events Brian Wong. Sadly the AS has a recent history of causing SunGod to suck, due to their kowtowing to the UCSD Administrations demand that they “cage SunGod” in RIMAC.
Hopefully they won’t have all of the “student passes” distributed as quickly, but knowing the incompetence of the Associated Students (who can’t even manage their own elections without chaos and corruption), this seems highly unlikely.
