This Lady Will Give You $200 And/Or an Hour of Sex for Tickets to See The Weeknd (NSFW)

So mysterious R&B outfit the Weeknd announced its first S.F. show ever yesterday. Tickets for the May 8 set at the Fillmore went onsale at 10 a.m. this morning, and sold out in less than 10 minutes, according to eager seekers on Twitter.

When shows sell out that fast, weird things start to happen. Weird things like people promising to pay multiple times the face value of the tickets and/or give their bodies in exchange for going to the show: "I willing to trade sex (1 hr) to go see the weeknd.....5'5...140 pds....nice ass and titts. Im really serious," reads one offer placed earlier this afternoon on Craigslist, along with this very NSFW picture:

Of course, we have no idea if the person shown in this image is same as the person who posted the ad seeking tickets. But we can't help but note how very Weeknd-ish this all seems. And also, how, uh, crazy it is. Abel Tesfaye will come back, folks.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
