The Mumford and Sons Gentlemen of the Road Stopover in Dixon, Illionis is this weekend. A quick refresher: Mumford and Sons plays overlooked small towns with hefty lineups of pals -- in this case Gogol Bordello, Abigail Washburn, the Very Best, Haim, Dawes, Apache Relay and Nathaniel Rateliff. It has long been way sold out, but there is a robust third party market at the moment. So robust, in fact, that passes can be had for basically face value through StubHub and Craigslist. The former has festival passes starting at $71. Craiglist, as usual, requires a bit more digging and rewards you with better offers. A poster in the Quad Cities Craiglist is offering an unknown number of passes for $69 and three camping passes (also sold out) for face value: $20. There are a few sellers in the St. Louis area as well, several right around what you would have paid anyway. So, to recap:
