@lylemckeany this is similar to an idea you were exploring several months ago. What do you think about this?

@rrhoover Thanks for bringing me into the discussion. I think this could be really awesome for big concerts. I think it will be hard to scale a product like this initially, but in the spirit of Paul Graham's "do things that don't scale," I'm all for it! When I was researching and doing customer development on my idea, I was mostly looking at the merchandise piece as a potential monetization feature within a different idea for an app. The problem was that my idea involved check-ins (which hardly anyone actually does anymore) and attempted to get people to share on a dedicated app, rather than via Twitter, FB, and Instagram where all their friends are already.

If you've been to a major concert and have had to wait in line to buy merch, you know that this app is pretty cool. :) At smaller concerts I don't mind waiting in line because it usually means I get to meet one of the artists.
