    Terrrrrrriffic! I’m trying to unload my tickets bought at $200 each for a small loss. Looks like I’ll have to take another $100 dive, just because sales are down for this year’s lineup. Make no mistake, if sales were brisk, this would not be happening.

    I don’t think AC Entertainment is too aware of how serious Ashevillians take Halloween. There will be five days of parties, then you also need to go trick or treating. I knew many many people that wanted to go to Moogfest last year but had other obligations.
