the gangi/happy hollows show at the viper room is 10 dollars i believe rather than 15 as you have listed. the mint show on thursday is 15. the viper room on friday is 10.

according to the club's websites they're both $10 in advance and $15 at the door. for club shows i usually just put the day of show price, because I assume people aren't going to get it together and buy in advance.
