Ticketfly, based in New York, markets itself as a "boutique alternative," working with clubs and smaller theaters. In addition, it builds Web sites, like Brooklyn Bowl's, and its software allows clubs to spread information about their offerings to Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace, where fans can chat about shows, make plans to meet up, and buy tickets with a quick click.
In the last year it has signed deals with clubs across the country,
including the Knitting Factory’s growing chain, the Double Door in
Chicago, and Bimbo’s 365 in San Francisco, and Brooklyn Bowl, which we noted earlier.
