)'( Last year BM Tix on Craiglist started out HIGH and ended up going at face value before the event
RELAX. You are safe enough to ASSUME you are going. Plenty folk asked for more tix than they needed to cover their friends / family / camps.
You might post a Tix ad in the WANTED section of CL with fun creative text of who you are, once a week if you are bored, or try different text each time.
also List trades or OFFERS of what you will exchange in the SIGNATURE of your EMAIL
speaking of TRADES take a look at
perhaps you can ask for what you want; perhaps stop saying oh I'm fine each time a friend or stranger asks how you are doing. Instead answer that you seek a BM ticket then repeat your offers or trades. Let your friends be your angels and matchmakers. :)

Sat Sep 8 2012 MICHAEL FRANTI & SPEARHEAD present POWER to the PEACEFUL in GOLDEN GATE PARK SF @ Speedway Meadows, JFK @ 25th ave/ Fulton
power to the peaceful this year is charging $10 admission.  
I've been working that beautiful party for years but this year (after the break year) the only way it could happen was to charge a nominal fee.  - the years of "gift economy -aka 'free'as you list it" are over due to the gift economy being seen as free not a reciprocal of love energy exchange.  We still have a huge vollunteer staff and truly anyone wanting 'free' admission can just ask to help out.  All the garbage - everything -the healing - there are many jobs to make it run - they're all still run on vollunteership. We as an organization love your community list and I (this is Liz) especially do.  - 
Its unfortunate that this is the news.  Power to the Peaceful still wants to get the main message out: That this is an event to empower the peaceful.  
Loves.  Liz
