How is the fan club working out for everyone? I was going to join last summer but was strapped for cash and had to pass and I am thinking about joining now that my cash flow is much better. Overall what are the perks? I know they give you some things up front but are the pre-sales worth it? Have they offered out any other goodies since?

I just want to know if its worth it or not.
It's def worth it for the presales alone. I'm going to 5 ny-nj shows this summer and got em all with presales

Pre-sale tickets are more expensive than tickets from ticketmaster, the 7" has never materialized, the shirts were very cheap....

I'd still join again because I love them and I love Halloween, but I can certainly see why many people are displeased.

What'chu talkin' 'bout Willis?

No but seriously, when did that happen? In my experience anyway many of the presales have been through ticketmaster anyway. Or if not, the fees have been cheaper and the ticket price has been the same.

Maybe it wasn't ticketmaster, but I chose to buy tickets for the Raleigh show and for the show at the Independent in SF this summer off the general sale because they were cheaper

Weird. Thanks for that bit of info, I'll have to pay better attention to any price differences in the future. I imagine it's rare though.

Did anyone else see El Jefe's post on facebook about the original fan club t-shirt designs? They look a lot better than the ones we got.

For quick comparison (taken from one of your posts Shelby!):


Also I happened to see you say this right in the beginning Laughing

I personally like the black on gray because it's more subtle and goes along with the Handwritten skull t-shirt

Yeah I did see. The black and grey are SO much nicer! I would love to own either one of those rather than the dismal White. I think they should send us all one as an Xmas present this year lol, and hopefully this LONG awaited vinyl too

Haha, I can't take credit for that as my own original picture. I don't know who took that photo but it wasn't me, I must've quoted it!

Well considering I was worried about the ticket thing being the major fail, I'm happy to say I worried for nothing! It's everything else that's a bit on the weak side.

Maybe pressing the vinyl turned out to be way too expensive and they're hoping we'll all forget about it or something.

I think the black on gray also looks a bit more vintage, which would go along with the "45" concept too.

This thread is 52 pages long. That's a lot of talk about this fan club!

52 Pages IS a lot! haha. I think a good 20 of them are taken up by

"I got my package, I'm number ___"
"I still haven't gotten mine, has anyone from ____ gotten their yet?"
"this t-shirt sucks"

Hahahaha, if you do make that banner, please have someone take a picture of it!

I think the summary of this whole topic could be "45RPM's ok, but, WTF I'm so confused."

Complete shit of a tshirt, 7" STILL isn't here. It does not take this fucking long to press a couple thousand 45s. Completely dissapointed in the fan club.

I'd say the odds are pretty high that this will happen, haha.

Instead of pumping lame merch for RSD out of their warehouses can't them pump out some 7" holiday singles that we were promised?

I asked about this a couple weeks ago and I believe June 21st was the date that we all signed up the first time? possibly? so yeah, it's coming up for those who signed up right at the start.

I think they said we'd be emailed about it but I'm concerned given how bad this club has been about doing things on time, that they'll get the email out late and the renewals will get messed up and we'll all lose our numbers, and it'll just be the end of the world geek

That would mean they'd have to send out new membership cards so I'm think we're safe.Very Happy

Haha oh god, yeah you're probably right. I don't think they'd put themselves through such a challenge. Rolling EyesRazz

Haha if they were even used for anything! It would have been cool if you brought your card to merch at a show they would give you "x" amount off of something that night. 

Otherwise the cards have been pointless. Every email always says "membership number is not needed"

I might email them soon cause I don't even have the same debit card from last year. I'd hate if they'd just try to auto renew or something!

I know ! At least make us feel cool by having us go through the motions of entering our number or showing our card geek
