If you were hoping to snag one of the five-day passes for Merge's epic 20th anniversary celebration July 22-26 in Carrboro/Chapel Hill, N.C., you're out of luck: The passes went on sale  to the general public at 10 a.m. this morning, and they were gone in 30 minutes. Wednesday's public sale follows a Monday offer to "Friends of Merge" and a Tuesday sale to those who subscribed to Merge's 20th anniversary Score! package. No word as to how many five-day passes were sold, but remember that the Cat's Cradle's capacity hovers around 600 and that a whole slew of band members and Merge staffers will need to fit inside.

Despair not, though: Merge promises that some one-day tickets will go on sale "soon" through the Cat's Cradle and the label's Web site. The announced lineup so far includes Superchunk, Spoon, Conor Oberst, Spent, M. Ward, The Rosebuds, Destroyer, Guv'ner, Polvo, Pipe and The Broken West, with plenty more on the way. Best add those sites to your RSS readers, kids.
