    Already entered. Also, holy shit. I'll have to check, but I've been to the Troubadour- this may be the smallest venue yet.

    Well, I'll be coming back from a Labor Day weekend holiday... so I can easily divert my flight home. Of course, I'm outside of KROQ's demo so it's doubtful I'll win any tickets.

    Knowing my luck I actually wouldve won tickets- I've got a flight to Florida on the 3rd for work.

    Entered. I never win radio show tickets, but it's worth a shot.

    Yup, the Troubadour's capacity is listed at 300-400 people. For context, the Echoplex is 700, and Scala is over 1,100.

    I hope we all win.

    I was going to enter, but the official rules state you need to be a resident of the state of California so..... blah!

    Just so happens i'm on vacation then too. Not going anywhere. Will be staying at home, so my schedule is totally open to hop a plane down to LA, lol.

    I am in Minnesota and it let me enter. Not sure if they will sift out all of the non-CA residents before doing the drawing.

    This is great news but the reality is that this show will consist of mainly industry guest list morons who are not fans of this band. I need to get into this gig ...there has to be a way!!

    Technically about 700. But theyve had it around 500 for most of the time. Also, I dont think they sold even that many tickets for that show anyway.

    EDIT: They just said HLAH is next after commercials. I can imagine they will give away at the time of playing?

    It's on nin.coms tour page. I seriously hope this small show doesn't consist of only KROQ winners. I'm guessing they'll at least have another Twitter contest.

    Stream is on a 5 minute delay, good luck with that.

    Does this also apply to the phone app? My work blocks all streaming services, guess I'm SOL if the app lags too.

    That is funny, I was just chatting with Peedro Paula, who will let me use her info if I win. She was listening at the same time I was on the stream and were both calling at the same time. 10 seconds maybe. Not 5 minutes.

    It is different to hear Everything on the radio. Not off topic, only reason I am listening to this crappy station is to win these tickets.

    Oops. I should have read the fine print before I registered. While I live in the LA area, I don't legally reside in CA. Guess I saved myself a week of listening to KROQ. If someone has an extra ticket, I'll take it.

    Why make this CA only yet make the London UK gig open to anyone? Things like this baffle me. Good luck to everyone who enters!

    Reading the rules again. You have to be part of KROQ's streetteam to win on the website.

    Fingers crossed so hard. And I misread and thought you had to just call on the hour. Lady on the phone wasn't amused.
