  1. Haw River Ballroom is a great venue. I'm not sure there's ever been a reserved seating show there or not. It's always GA as far as I know...
  2. The thing that frustrates me most about shipping from Kung Fu is it would take me less time to drive to their headquarters to pick it up than it would be for me to drive home from work. It's literally right around the corner. If I could just go pick it up and save the $$$ that would be nice. The people in the office there are great in the few times I interacted with them. It's the shipping prices that are bananas.
  3. Looks like they're up on Amazon.com as well. Just pre-ordered both.
  4. I've never seen a Jeff Tweedy solo show. Got to see him perform a few songs when he presented American Movie in Durham a couple of years ago but that was it. I'd love to see a full show...Maybe now I will.
  5. I'm positive the rest of the US will get dates. Of course I have nothing to back up my claims except I seem to get to see them in my area once every year or two...
  6. I got some Journey tickets for my boss. I was able to get some for Social Distortion in Raleigh though. Nothing else really stood out.
  7. I'm hoping for more dates after Asheville. The drive is only 4 1/2 hours but if they announce Raleigh / Durham after I got tickets to Asheville my wife would kill me. That and I'm going to Asheville a month later to see Slowdive. Not sure she'd be on board with all that...
  8. My kids are 4 and almost 8 now, so in 4 years I think they could handle it. We actually went over a covered bridge in Bennington each day, to and from, Solid Sound. It was nice! Yep, what you saw was the Bennington Battle Monument. It was really neat to see up close. It's in a neighborhood! Crazy. Never seen anything like that. We drove right past it. It was a really nice little town. We rented a cottage from Air B&B and it worked out great. Just about a 30 minute drive to and from each day. I'll take it. I do that getting to work each day anyway. The Kevin Morby pop up was GREAT! At first
  9. Outside of Wilco / Tweedy my favorite was Kevin Morby. Kurt Vile was great as well. I had a blast in the comedy area.
  10. I've seen Wilco many times in the past and have also been to many day long festival shows. Only one multi-day festival show previously. This was easily one of the best concert experiences of my life. The venue was unlike anything I had ever been to. I had no idea what to expect but it was absolutely perfect for the event. Parking was a non-issue, food was great, the people were awesome, both staff and people attending. The pop up events were great! I was in the right place at the right time to see Kevin Morby and the one for Nick Offerman. I absolutely loved Joe's Field. I knew I was going to
  11. Awesome! Thanks for the heads up!
  12. My wife and I are coming up from Raleigh on Friday morning. Flying into Boston and then driving the three (?) hours! Can't wait.
  13. I'm pretty sure there will be a Roadcase of both dates.
  14. Good lord, I just saw the food trucks available! Tacos, Middle Eastern, BBQ. Daaaaaang. I suspect I'll have a belly full of tacos or schwarma at just about any given moment. http://solidsoundfestival.com/food/
  15. I was able to hear the new Kevin Morby, City Music, and it's great! Just as good as his earlier stuff. I'm almost as excited to see his set as I am to see Wilco.
  16. I think the voting ends on the 22nd? Less than a week.
  17. I know there's no way to regulate this but one thing that frustrates me is the fact that some people are voting that are not going to the show. I wish we could put in some sort of procedure that verifies you'll be at the show and then you may vote 1 time per day.
  18. I totally agree, otherwise it would be a crazy short set. BUT if you want a certain whole release played...
  19. It looks like a close race between YHF and BT. While I agree with and understand the voters for YHF I have to make a clear case for BT. You'll hear MANY of the songs from YHF if you attend a few Wilco shows. At least 2-3 any given night plus a deeper cut from time to time. Hell, I've seen them about 10 times and have still never seen Kamera...But a chance to hear all of Being There. In full? That is a no brainer to me. I've never seen Far, Far Away, What's The World Got In Store, Say You Miss Me, Sunken Treasure, I'm assuming they'd play the alternate Outta Sight Outta Mind as well, Someone El
  20. It was my first time seeing them and they were great! Great setlist that covered just about everything. The Ritz in Raleigh gets a bad rap. They've renovated it in the past several years and it's pretty good now. Sound is not fantastic but other places are worse.
  21. Since it's released on the first day of Solid Sound does anyone think a different version might be available there? Signed copies or anything? I want to preorder this but I can't help but wonder what if...
