I have section 207. My friend had purchased the ticket for both of us. When she realized today she only purchased 1. She gave me the ticket as it as bought because I love Arcade Fire, but now I'm going alone. I'll meet up w/ other friends but they're sitting elsewhere. I'll be at the Black Sheep around 7ish.

Would love to join in if it's not too late - never been to a Meetup before, how do people actually meet up?
Also, maybe a crazy question - is anyone dressing up? When AF started this tour, they asked people to come in formal or costume attire, but I don't think people have been doing that in recent shows.
Also, I have an extra seated ticket if anyone is still looking - Section 107.
My ticket says formal attire/costume on it so I think they're still doing it. I'm thinking about it!
Hi guys! I'm new to Meetup too and would love to find out how this works haha :) I am also thinking about dressing up - I might end up playing it safe and just wearing something minimal like a mask, though... still not sure. Wondering if anyone here went to last night's gig (or knows someone who did) and can tell us if people actually showed up in formal attire/ full costume...?
Some people came in funky black tie, hawaiian shirts, zombies, masks, etc
Are people going and meeting up? Does everyone have GA tickets?
Hi Andrea. My ticket is GA floor also :) Around what time will you be arriving? Maybe we could coordinate something! Let me know :)
Just FYI - The Afropunk Festival 2014 starts @ Noon, is FREE, is ONLY 10 BLOCKS away from the Barclay's Center, and features bands such as - Body Count, Bad Brains, Shabazz Palaces, Trash Talk, & Valerie June (plus many others)

Thanks man I've been there before. It's funny, you didn't mention any of the bands that I really wanna see like fishbone, Meshell Ndegeocello, D'Angelo, Sharon Jones if she's actually playing there, etc...

All those bands are playing Sunday
I have a separate post for the sunday show
Oh cool. I wasn't sure when they were playing. I don't see a post about Sunday anywhere. Do you know the times they're playing? It's gonna be packed for D'Angelo.
D'Angelo is not yet confirmed. I've posted a MeetUp for Sunday - see http://afropunkfest.c...
Nice! That helps alot..I didn't know the times or order. I wish Sharon Jones was playing sunday but I've seen her and the dap kings so many times that it's not a big deal. The sets are so short..they def. should have less bands and longer sets, I mean jeez Fishbone for just a half hour? That's crazy.

Yeah... Body Count, a headliner, gets 45 minutes? And some people are performing twice (Two 30 minutes sets, with a major break in between) It's very poorly planned.
Last year was the same BS. It's a shame with such a great lineup that it gets ruined or diminished by the awful event planners. You gonna stay the whole day on Sunday?
My plan is to get there before SZA @ 5:15p, then stay thru the end. Meshell is at 7p & If D'Angelo plays, it will be the closing this night.
Who is SZA? I see they're playin right before Fishbone..are you seeing them? I'll probably go closer to 5/5:30.
We should be talking about this in that meetup, rather than the Arcade Fire meetup. SZA is one of the 'Acts to catch" this year.
I agree, I was thinking exactly the same thing. We must be driving the arcade fire folks crazy.
I no longer have the extra ticket, as Christie is going. Also, I'm cancelling dinner as I'll eat beforehand at the FREE Hudson River Park Blues BBQ Festival!!

Hey Mike. I've cancelled the Blues BBQ Meetup as I'm going to Afropunk instead to catch Body Count (1st time in 22 years!!!)
I cancelled the Bluse BBQ Meetup, as I'm going to Afropunk 2014 instead to catch Body Count!!
I'm gonna go on Sunday around 3pm or so. I'll give you a ring.
Just FYI - The Afropunk 2014 Festival starts @ Noon and is only 10 blocks from the Barclay's Center. A free show featuring bands such as - Body Count, Bad Brains, Shabazz Palaces, Trash Talk, & Valerie June
I have an extra ticket if anyone is interested in this show and doesn't have one yet.

Help support your Meetup
This a group for all women and men, who really love live music and want to go to concerts but can't always find someone to go with.
Not everyone in the group will like the same music and/or bands, but that's cool.
So if a show is coming up that you want to go to but have no friend to join you, post it and I am sure people will join! Be proactive when you post ideas!
It's about enjoying the show together and having fun with like minded people, and discover some new bands and music along the way!
5,361 Ethnic Food Lovers
2,797 Real New Yorkers
3,071 NYC Cool Friends
2,984 Fun Singles
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
