The good news: There are still some tickets left for some of the free Heineken Inspire events taking place Friday and Saturday at the Moore Building in the Design District.
The bad news: That doesn't include the most coveted of the events, the Friday-night show by the Cold War Kids and the Hold Steady, or the Saturday-afternoon show by Fabolous and Wale.
The okay news, if you have nothing to do Friday afternoon, or are a fan of urban Latin music, or both: Some tickets are still left for Friday's DJ sets by Skratchy and Irie, from 3 to 7 p.m., and for Tito El Bambino's show Saturday night at 9 p.m.
Attempts to sign up for more Friday-night tickets turned up a message saying more might be available online later, so it's worth a shot. Unfortunately, an attempt to score tickets for Saturday afternoon just turned up the message, "tickets are no longer available online" -- in other words, don't hold your breath.
To score the remaining tickets, first become a fan of Heineken on Facebook. That inspire.heineken.com link that's been going around the Internet doesn't work unless you do that first. (See, social networking naysayers? You miss out.) Go to the "Inspire USA" tab on that page, then follow the byzantine series of links to request tickets for the various events. You'll need to type in "InspireMIA" when you finally get to the page that asks you for a coupon code.
