How can I snag the Afghan Whigs setlist from an upcoming show?

This is for a birthday gift and I'm really pining for it. The obvious answer would be to grab it at the show, but this is their first album in 16 years and at a small venue, it's sure to be a sold out show. My chances of actually grabbing it in a crowd of people is minimal (plus, what about security?). I'm wondering if it's too much to ask if someone backstage can grab it, but that would involve calling the venue's box office and asking a favor which I'm not sure would work. I thought of sending a letter with a self-addressed stamped envelope to their fan site but I realize those letters probably never reach the band. Has anyone successfully done this, or have any ideas that might work?

To clarify - the S.A.S.E. would be for them to return any setlist that they might have. I also thought of sending a C.D. to autograph rather than asking for a setlist, but that's probably pushing it.
Another option is to ask a friend to go with us and keep him busy while I work my way to the front, and just try to grab it.
