String Cheese Incident, which refined the practice of advance ticket sales to fans, is about to sue the bejeezus out of TicketMaster. Apparently, TM won't release blocks of tickets to bands unless they're to be sold to "legitimate fan clubs" with members paying a minimum of $15 per year for membership. SCI has apparently got its hands on a few smoking guns, too. Should be fun!
