… about goldstar? The service provides discounted tickets to arts events in this area (and others) that can be ordered online and in advance! (And as much as I love the people at Tickeplace, there are some major advantages here.)
Also, it is a great forum to publicize your event. The people doing Santaland Diaries said that even though they put a limited number of tix for each of their shows on the service, there was a spillover effect in terms of attendance.
