Last night, I received this e-mail:
Hey JM fans!
We’re excited to announce that tonight, Sunday August 9th, John Mayer will be playing a secret show at Los Angeles’s Troubadour! For the first time since getting in the studio, JM will step on stage with Steve Jordan, Pino Palladino and Ian McClagen to perform new tracks from Battle Studies. A collaboration by Jason Reeves and Jordan Lawhead of Nashville will open the show.
A limited amount of tickets will be available for $20 through the Troubadour Box Office only, today (Sunday, August 9th) at noon PST. Ticket purchasers will be given a bracelet that will allow them to get in line starting at 7pm for this general admission show. Doors will open at 8pm and the show will start at 9pm. Please note that congregating in the venue parking lot or vicinity before 7pm will not be allowed.
Absolutely no transfers will be allowed. All ticket purchasers must be present in line during the on-sale in order to be admitted entrance into the show. We will be placing wristbands on all individuals who purchase tickets (one per fan). Any tampering or damage to the wristband will result in non-admittance.
No video or audio taping allowed.
Good luck and we’ll see you tonight!

It seemed just like any ordinary secret gig, until I learned that he was with Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino.
NO VIDEOS, NO AUDIO TAPES – yes i understand
BUT NO PHOTOS?? FOR CRYING OUT LOUD… it’s been HOURS since the show ended.
