A Band Battles Ticketmaster On Sales Fees

One Friday afternoon recently, about 50 fans and friends of the band String Cheese Incident took $20,000 in cash to the Greek Theater in Los Angeles to take a small stand against the system — in this case, Ticketmaster. With money advanced by the band, each person had enough to buy eight tickets at $49.95 apiece for the group’s show in July.
