Those of you who were considering holding out on buying tickets for ComplexCon at the Long Beach Convention Center may want to reconsider in the next couple of hours. This morning it was announced that Kanye West will top the bill of this convention/festival on November 5-6. Tickets go on sale at noon today. Last May, we got word that Complex Media (recently acquired by Hearst and Verizon in April) planned to bring us a mixture of pop up shops art installations, fashion, live music, and food together curated by Pharrell and contemporary artist Takashi Murakami.
If the lineup featuring Skrillex, Kid Cudi, Travis Scott and Chief Keef wasn't already enough, Complex is showing love to all the Yeezy Boost wearing cool kids out there by throwing West on top of the bill on a event that's only a fraction of a high-priced Coachella ticket. Two-day expo day passes are going for $80 (or you can buy a single day pass for $45 each). If you want to stay for the concert (duh!) it'll cost you $100-$150 for loge and $75-$100 for balcony seating.

Nate Jackson is the gatekeeper to your dreams of local dive bar stardom. If he writes about you, expect your band to be offered at least one more drink ticket than the rest of the bands on the bill. Get his attention with some groovy tunes and he might just do it. Then, boy will you feel special.
