I do have a GA ticket so I'll be spending all day on the 12th standing in line. But I if I stay in the city after the gig then I figure I can explore from like 9 am on the 13th until like 3 pm, then I'll need to get on the road to Pittsburgh.
I can't remember exactly how much I paid for the ticket (you can look up fares on the NJ Transit website) but I took the train from Berkeley Heights, NJ which was definitely far enough to out to avoid all the BS and it wasn't more than $15 round-trip.
