Google Local Search Results for Ticket Scalping

Interesting search I just did…

The Swell Season is in town in a few weeks. I wanted to see if tickets had gone on sale, so I searched “Denver Swell Season.” A local result popped up (with a map, top of everyone else results) and I thought “wow, the venues are getting it.” Single events are hard.

Wrong. Clicked through, and a scalper owns that result, not the venue. Sleazy to me. Tickets In Town is the offending site.

Pretty sure this isn’t how local search was designed.
