You got me that time.
I'm already there. It will be cool to see them at the GAMH instead of Slims.
Also, fuck yeah Kylesa. I won't have to worry about missing them on their current tour due to Bodom.

Come to Florida damnit! :flame:

I don't know why, but it really does seem like bands do irrationally hate playing Florida. There's no reason why a 20+ date US tour shouldn't include at least one Florida date.

Seriously. A Colorado date and not one in Florida? :confused::hecho::flame:

Damn! I'm going to be in Phoenix that weekend, but there's no way I can take more time off work and get down there that early.

Apr. 30 - Metro - Chicago, IL


Sweet. I will most likely be at this show.

The Metro is a decent place, but the lack of parking really sucks.

That pretty much describes every place in San Francisco.

That pretty much describes every place in San Francisco.

That pretty much describes every venue in a sizable city.

Yes and no. San Francisco is one of the most dense major cities, I believe only second to NYC. For some reason, hipsters and Chinese people love it there.
Wikipedia says that SF has 17k bodies per square mile, as opposed to about 11k in Philidelphia.

I wasn't claiming that big cities anywhere are more densely populated than San Francisco, or anywhere else. I was just basically saying that, as a rule of thumb, most venues in large cities completely lack adequate parking, like just about anything else in big cities. There's just simply nowhere to put it, except for occasional parking decks, which usually rape you to park in them for 6 hours. So any event which requires several hundred people to abnormally converge is going to have trouble having adequate parking given the already high demand being the size of the city.

If I could take public transportation from where I am to Philly and/or NYC, trust me, I would.
