Damn you, Stephin Merritt!!!  
So, each year I buy the all access pass for the Film Festival, which lets you see all the movies and go to all the parties. I usually don't care about the parties, but it's free food and open bar, so my buddy Michael and I usually go to the opening party to get into the spirit of things. This year, however, they have split the all access pass in two. The normal priced one now just gets you the movies. If you want the parties as well, that's an extra $45. No big deal, I just got the cheap version and figured I'd spend that $45 making my own party.

Then I found out Stephin Merritt (from the Magnetic Fields) will be DJing the opening night party. And he's spinning bubblegum pop, which is interesting because I'd like to see what songs he considers to be bubblegum.

I'm really torn.

Forgive my naivety, but is there any chance you could just crash the opening night party? I don't know what kind of security they have, but there is almost some way to get around it.

Excellent question! And it's one I've been mulling over. There will be security, however I have at least reasonable hope of getting past them, because:

1) I will have the cheap festival pass and they may not notice that it's the wrong one.

2) The security will probably either be festival volunteers (who are working the gig just so they can get into movies for free and thus might not take their job too seriously) or the normal bouncers for the club where the party is (who may not be aware there are different kinds of festival passes).

So, a sporting chance certainly....
