Man it sucks to live in the middle of the east and west coast, they seem to need to be near the ocean at all times. Memphis or New Orleans would work great for me, even Birmingham, atlanta or dallas. I best not wait until they come close to me, looks like they never will.

Looks like 2 nights in Eugene that fall within my normal days off.
Cool.

Ah, finally some shows in Eugene...I don't have to travel! 2 shows, even! That's why I moved out here from the east coast...

Got 'em!
:cool:
2 lawn seats for each night (No reserved seating on this Pre-Sale as far as I can tell).
I'm gonna shoot for reserved seats when they go on sale.

Hey Pete, if you need a place to crash that's cheaper, lemme know. It's not party-central (I have kids) but I do have room and I bike to the shows, so if you have a bicycle...pm me if you're interested.

Thanks!
I think we will just stay at the Inn, but would love to arrange an RuKind-er meet-up/jam(?).

Sounds cool! TS coming down? My jam room is gone, but I should be able to put something together...although I'll be back at work at that time, so may not have time until Saturday, for those staying over after the Friday show. We'll see...

So I spaced out being ready to pounce at 9am this morn (Eugene went on sale to public)... I caught two local Dead Tribute bands last night though! (separate venues).
I thought I would score Reserved Seats today.
Looks like all that is available is General Admission.
AmyJared, Do you know if Cuthbert is typically 100% General Admission?... I see they have a seating chart for "Reserved Seating close to the stage".
I'm now thinking these shows are 100% GA.
Now I'm gonna need to hire a kid to wait in line for me while I cruze the lot ("Doors open at 5:30, so... be there at noon and uhhh, I'd bring empty milk jug"). 8)

Pete,
Cuthbert just underwent a remodel last year and it's slightly different. They used to have benches down front and they changed it to actual seating to be able to sell some higher priced seats. They also created more of a dance floor up front, iirc, so that people can jump up and boogey. I've NEVER had them not allow me to wander up front and watch, whether gen admission or reserved. I always get GA tix cuz I like to move around and dance and I prefer to sit on the lawn since it's such a small venue--there's really not a bad seat in the place. I assume they're selling reserved seats for the front, but can't be sure. I'll check around and see what's the deal...
