    Pretty sure every time I have driven there I have been burned ...course it's been a few years and I wasn't using google maps then...maybe now I can cruise through without the double penalty...

The wife says to me as we stand in this ocean of people...what are we doing here?....If I wanted to watch a concert on a big screen I"d rather do it in my living room than here in this intimate setting with a half million people... Looked at her and said damn.....lets blow this taco stand...and we left...

    So the big ass concerts no way any more...but I'm 5 years younger than you so I am still up for small venue stuff like up to maybe 500 people...The wife...not so much

    Lol. My ex-wife once got on the Nj Turnpike and about 20 miles later when she saw a sign for the Lincoln Tunnel she realized was going in the wrong direction. And she lives here!

    I was never a concert person, probably been to less than ten in my life. Of course we have something called "Summerfest" in Milwaukee and I've seen lots of big acts there. I've come the same conclusion as you but from a different direction. I don't understand why a person doesn't want to pay a $3-$5 cover charge at a local bar to support a guy with a day job but willingly pays $8 for a warm flat beer after being herded and waiting in line forever to go see ants on a stage when they could be sitting right up front with an ice cold bottle. Of course the "concert" act is more talented, maybe even perfect, but personally I prefer the rawness of a club and like to soak up the mojo rays.

    The weather
    It's still April here, someone is behind schedule.


    LATER!!!

    The number of bars out here with live entertainment these days is far and few between.

    Plus the ones that do have start times right about when I’m putting on my pajamas. .

    I went to a live event past weekend and it was a great sound system, the sound guy on bluetooth walking around with the e-pad and no one at the mixing board..... there were several stages.... at times more than one stage going on.

    when the last band came on at Midnight+.....another part of the "bar area" turned on Karaoke for the other type guests....so if you stood outside you could hear the Live Band playing while the Karaoke singers were drink-singing...

    not trying to judge, just stating an observation of weirdness...imo

    great sound systems to be on the up attitude side, makes the bands sound really really good. that seems to be the "new norm"...I cant even remember hearing feedback anymore its been that long ago, not like the bar bands in the 70's and 80's I heard with feedback troubles as normal.

    if it's not happening in the room, it ain't gonna happen on tape.-H.Gerst

    I think they play at sensible volumes now, my recollection of the 80's would be bands playing so loud you had no idea what they were playing.

    Maybe next year. But you’ll have to get thru the Knicks first.

    It was very deflating, especially after being up by two games. You hate to think that was our chance, there's a lot of uncertainty in the team's future.

    Any consolation that you lost to the ultimate champs, cheeseboy?
