There's a panel discussion at Drexel University tonight on the high cost of concert tickets, and the exorbitant tack-on fees that often add insult to injury. On hand will be Josh Baron, co-author with Dean Budnick, of Ticket Masters: The Rise of the Concert Industry and How the Public Got Scalped, along with R5 Productions Sean Agnew, David Cooper, founder of Pearl Jam Ticketing, and Jim McCafferty of the Mann Center for the Perfroming Arts. It's free, it's open to the public, and it's moderated by Tom Moon, former Inquirer pop critic who's the author of 1000 Things To Hear Before You Die. Showtime is 7 at the Bossone Research Center at 3140 Market Street on the Drexel campus.
