I'll be there though because I live 30 min away. Hopefully the horrible sound keeps people away, and I pull good seats as a result.

i'd go somewhere else if i were you, not a great venue/sound and it's usually an "ok" show (minus 2003)

only reason i go is because it's close to me

we're due for another good show at this shitty venue

Caveat Emperor
08-16-2009, 03:10 AM
I'm from Cincinnati, so I know how to tolerate a shitty venue. I'm thinking about driving in for the show with a couple friends (3 of us total).

On a scale of 1-horrid, how bad is the lawn here? The only pulls I'm getting on LN are for the last row of pavilion in the far corner. I can do WH instants for 2 lawns and get another lawn elsewhere. The only other option would be to wait for closer to the show date to see about a late dump of tickets, but I really hate leaving it to chance.

Any feedback is appreciated!

Lawn is pretty bad. The screens suck in the lawn as does the audio in the entire place. If you can get by with waiting closer to the show, find pavilion.

i know.

i need two tickets reserved

Don't waste your time. Venue sucks. The sound is bad the traffic sucks and there is no tailgating. I'm from chicago and I wouldn't pay money to see them there again. I think my ears were on the verge of bleeding after the show in '06.

Are we going to make a TDC meetup actually happen this time? This is like the worst venue to do that, since if we're seen congregating in a formation that resembles tailgating, I'm sure we'll promptly be told to make ourselves scarce. :rolleyes Maybe in the venue?

Nick where are you sitting

a friend of mine picked up a bunch of lawn tickets on a whim. so as of right now, there. this will potentially be my second time ever sitting in the lawn, and I'm actually prepared to make the best of it. i'm just glad to be getting one more in this tour.

As things are looking, I'm probably going to be pushing it getting there on time. A friend of mine has to work until 5, so we have to wait for him. Then, I assume we'll be battling the hell that is Chicago traffic to get there.

No way Em, that hurts... and when I miss the first 3 songs and come back to the boards upset about it, I'll be accepting your apology. ;)

If you want to save some money, just cut the top off of a popcan, put an earbud in said can, hold up to your ear and you have the great sounding audio that comes from this venue.

Honestly just save your money.

So I just won tickets for this show through the Mix. Has anyone ever won tickets through the Mix before? Are they good seats?

no clue, hopefully they're good

i'm sure they would've advertised if they were front row, backstage passes, etc.

but who cares, they're free

lake geneva with the wife sounds like a pretty great weekend...if you want i could do you a favor and take the tickets off your hands for you:)

in all seriousness, my gf just found out she got off work for sat, which is awesome bc it's also the day of her gre...so now im looking for good tix to surprise her with. Today I also found out that ppl dropped out of the duffy's party bus to and from tinley so that makes it even more awesome that we don't have to drive :banana

If they are good I def would make an offer for the tix tho...just throwing that out there

Ha - I would just give them to you but I promised them to my DMB obsessed sister if I don't go. She about flipped.

It is our anniversary in a week and a half but we have a wedding that weekend, so this is our quasi-celebration. When I got the call from the Mix today I was like huh? So, we may do both - I never win shit so we feel kind of obligated to go if they hooked us up with first ten rows or something.

sounds good...enjoy either way.

Kinda funny/kinda but not really related story- when i was like 10 i was on my way to a sports camp and 101.9 had a contest for kids to call in to talk about their summer camps...i called in and got through...won four tix to midevil times :rawk ...if i remember correctly we had some decent seats...if that's any indication haha
