We didn't see this coming: Virgin Mobile just announced they will release 1,000 extra FreeFest tickets on Friday.
The $20 "Karma" tickets will only be available at the Merriweather Post Pavilion South box office and the 9:30 Club box office from noon to 6 p.m. (or until they run out) Friday. There will be a two-ticket limit.
Proceeds will go toward the Re*Generation House, Virgin Mobile's new homeless youth shelter in Washington. This is a final push so the shelter "won't have to worry about funding for at least two years," according to spokeswoman Audrey Fix Schaefer.
For this year's FreeFest, Jack White, Skrillex, Nas, M83 and more will perform at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Saturday. firstname.lastname@example.org/midnightsunblog
