The Temporary’s website and ticket sales back online after cyberattack

Staff report

A pared-down version of The Temporary at Willits’ website went back online Tuesday, with ticket sales open for the first time since a cyberattack last week.

An attack on the event ticket distributor Ticketfly caused the company to take its services offline on Thursday May 31, shutting down ticketing for thousands of venues around the country including The Temporary.

The midvalley venue opted, in response, to make its events free over the weekend and kept its doors open for a concert by Hollis Brown on Friday, June 1, and a concert with bluegrass band The Good Bad on Saturday, June 2.

The venue issued the following statement Tuesday afternoon:

“We would like to thank you for your patience as we work through issues with our ticketing system and website. The good news is that our systems are coming back online and no customer credit card data was compromised (in fact, it is never stored in our system). Please note that the next time you purchase tickets, you may be asked to change your password. Again, thank you for your patience as we get back to normal operations.

This weekend, we have two nights of culture and entertainment. Friday night sees the return of our popular Tacos, Salsa, & Bachata program. A salsa lesson will take place at 8:30 and the dance floor will open at 9:30. As always, tacos by Nacho will be on sale and drink specials will be available. It doesn’t matter if you are a salsa expert or a first-timer, put on your dancing shoes and learn some new moves.

On Saturday, we say thank you to our donors at our first annual Summer Preview. Executive Director, Ryan Honey, and Artistic Director, Marc Breslin, will share upcoming programming highlights and offer insights into how acts at The Temporary are curated. Food will be served, and there will be a hosted bar. Donors can RSVP to Anna at After the Summer Preview, donors are welcome to stay as our guests for Fareed Haque and his Funk Brothers at 8:30.

Tickets for the general public to Fareed Haque and his Funk Brothers are also available. Fareed was voted the “Best World Guitarist” by Guitar Player Magazine. His unique command of the guitar and different musical styles inspire his musical ventures with tradition and fearless innovation. You don’t want to be the one to say, ‘I missed that show.”

Thanks again for your being a friend and supporter of The Temporary. We hope to see you this weekend.”
