Sold out concert - Do ticket prices go up or down as concert time nears?

There's a sold out concert this Saturday night at a medium sized (10,000 seat?) venue near where I live. Several hundred tickets are available on StubHub for the show, but they're asking more than I can pay right now. If I wait until Friday night or even Saturday afternoon, should I expect ticket prices to go up, down, or disappear altogether? I know every show is different. Just looking for some general guidelines or experience, if there are any.
I don't want to deal with scalpers on-site, and I picked StubHub because I can print at home and am less likely to get ripped off.
