Any chance Ryan Adams will be playing with Phil at all during this run? He just played a Haloween show in NYC (which was fantastic, btw). I know he doesn't get the warmest reception from the Deadhead community, but he's extremely talented and really connects with Phil on stage.

I would have guessed Ryan would come last night - he was on the Letterman show about an hour before the phil show - seems he would have shown up last night if he was going to show up.

HEY ALL:

After tonights show, if you are looking for something more to do, check at TWIDDLE at Connollys - Klub 45, the third floor. 121 west 45th - between 6th and broadway - only about a block 1/2 away.

Twiddle is a great new band, young guys, with big Grateful Dead and phish influence, but a true sound of their own.

They do Eyes of the World and include the tight composed section (similar to slipknot) that used to end the jams during the 1973-1974
plus they do a reggae-funk version of rocky racoon
and they do an interesting jam version of classical gas - yeah, the 1968 mason williams one

but there own stuff is really cool too - I like this band alot! Check them out - they go on at midnight and plan to play until 4:00 AM

Tell them Grubby Bean sent you

RA is an awesome talent, but talk about erratic; when he's not on his game, missing lyrics is the least of his problems.

And I think there is some daylight between he and Jerry...

RA did a great Let It Ride at his show this past week...Magnolia Mountain would be cool...that's the RA most suited to P&F I think.

that setlist is about right...

maybe the scarlet tease should not be there as phil teases everything all the time

amd the encore jam might just be called 'jam' thougj the feedback harkens back to rhe old versions of Dark Star wjere rhe GD would emerge from a spacey feedback percussive space into Dark Star!

Ryan Adams was off-the-charts great. The show was great.

Well-constructed in the sense that the opening mini-set finished on a high note; followed by the unique acoustic set, well-played in spots but kind of mellow; only to have Ryan come out and blow everyone away, with his playing, his singing and his presence. And the rest of the band followed nobly.

The short electric 1st set featured Jackie, and he performed. Okay, he's not a virtuoso on guitar but he has a nice feel, witness his leads on Midnight Rider. Played some good harmonica on the Dylan-sounding tune, and sang a nice Dire Wolf with Larry on pedal steel. Passenger was a solid, surprising and well-received closer, though Jackie butchered the ending a little. Where we were, up in the seats, where the visuals are great but the sound a little thin, people were pumped up.

After teasing greatness, to follow with an acoustic set took guts. Since Philís bass couldnít be heard upstairs, we moved closer. I enjoyed the set, although it might have zapped the energy for some people. I loved Larryís Vasser Clements workout. Sounds like heís been playing that one since he was a kid. Didnít miss a note and showed himself to be the virtuoso he is. Dead Flowers and Mama Tried were nuggets. Damn, Iíve never seen Phil on acoustic bass.

My buddy wasnít as impressed though, and said if it didnít get better he might book. I said letís move up close, and we got a great spot on the floor. Heís a big Ryan Adams fan so when saw Ryan setting up, and recognized the first few notes of Wharf Rat, everything was cool.

At that point I stopped taking notes. Ryan has this incredible stage presence and he played and sang great. Phil was loving it, and everybody in the band shined. Wharf Rat and Dark Star were the common themes, weaving in and out, with a killer Franklinís, Fire (recognized a mile away) and Eclipse thrown in, among the jams. Then Jackie, whoíd been gracefully incognito for most of the set, took over with a very admirable Sugar Mags. I donít know, Iíve been going to Phil & Friends since the beginning,and that was as god as anything.

People have been crowing about Glens Falls. Itís time for a battle of the digital soundboards. Iím favoring 11/2 by a field goal.

What an absolutely wonderful show. Got right up front for the first set .started with a nice jam into birdsong. loved cell block one of my fav Jackie tunes. Dire wolf and midnight rider were both well played. Jackie was really into it tonight! Passenger next, very nice breakout! Jackie screwed up a lil but Phil just smiled and they finished up nicely. Very short set so I knew we were in for some acoustic music. About a 15 minute break and the band was back. Iíve listened to the Red rockís and Camden shows, but to see Phil on that standup live was a treat. Standard but well played FOTD into a song that im not familiar with (its missing from the setlist, something along the lines of laureen and writing a letter??? i donít think its a Jackie original, but it was sweet. Cry yourself dry was ok. Big Mon was great, Larry ripping on fiddle. Dead Flowers, God I love that Tune!!! Nice suprise There was some really backing vocals from Larry during the entire acoustic set!! I was hoping for Brokedown, but we got a Mama Tried instead which wrapped up the whole set well.

One to Set Three and oh what a monster it was!! First of all im a RA Freak and i went nuts w\hen he hit the stage. Sick Wharf Rat, That i thought put Trey's to shame. Jackie was really ripping it on keys during this song. Franklin's was hot, but i was hoping Ryan would sing a verse or two. He did take a nice solo though. I thought Stella was awesome, i really think Ryan poured his heart out into that one. Scarlet tease >FOTM was huge Phil was dropping BOMBS!!! Jackie took an amazing solo in Fire, so good it even seemed to surprise Phil! Molitz started freakin out on his synth and then came DS pt 1, some really nice jamming between Larry Ryan and Jackie, Jackie was playing slide. Some more freakiness coutsey of Molitz and then came Eclipse! Very powerful stuff, Molitz handled the vocals well. Terrapin up next (inspiration) which got the crowd going bonkers! Jackie nailed Sugar Mag ( though weird hearing it from someone other then bobby)

Encore: Space into DS Pt 2 ..wow unbelievable. nuff said. Box was a great way to end it and everyone left happy.

The band sounded superb, Jackie was on, Ryan was a nice suprise and he didint step on anyones toes.

Cant wait for 2morrow My birthday show THE BIG 2-0!!!

One complaint , too many piss drunks who have no respect for peoples space. GOODNIGHT!

>>I don't know why ppl are so hard on him, so what if he missed some lyrics, didn't JERRY need a teleprompter at the end??<<

I saw Ryan first play Wharf Rat with Phil at the Jammy's when Phil was the host a few years ago. Ryan was unimpressive that night, to say the least, and he was mostly backed up by the Cardinals, other than for Phil. He should have been comfortable, but he sure didn't seem it; he couldn't even make it through the song that night. He was pathetic.

Well, RA's other self took the stage tonight and this alter ego played (sang and blistered on guitar) the way those who have been waiting for this Ryan Adams to show up would want him to play, finally. He was everything you just read above, with Jackie adding supporting rhythm and leads along with Larry, although Jackie was the odd man out, as Ryan was that dominating a presence. That last set was superb from start to finish. The energy on Franklin's was about as high as I've heard it in a very, very, very long while; Phil was having a fuckin' blast and he was killing us down on the rail. Ryan was adding something solid on every song, but laid back most in Terrapin, which started from a dead stop after Eclipse; just Phil and Molo getting it started, done like I saw it done in Camden 3 weeks ago (when I also caught an acoustic set; this one was even better - Dead Flowers was amazing - whole audience seemed like they were singing). Look at that freakin' last setlist!! Dark Star(v1)>Eclipse (which was spot on, with a couple of female singers off in the wings backing Molitz). Then the encore is a jam for about 5 minutes before doing the second verse of Dark Star, then closing with Box; WOW! And they even went OT, past midnight with this encore. There was plenty of sustained jamming (less contained than at some other shows) in this second set and with 3 guitarists, they were all taking shots at doing their stuff. What a special twist to this show and I've seen sit-ins from Bobby to Warren to Trey and this was as good or better.

I've seen 3 shows now - Camden, Halloween, and tonight; I am VERY glad I did not skip tonight. I bet there will be other very special shows before this run is done, but I think this one will be in the running for best of the best.

Very interesting show. Got off to kind of a slow start for me. Heard Bird Song from the coat check line. First set never really gelled. A couple miscues. Last night's first set was better (and I'm sure the tapes will bear this out).

The acoustic set got moving with Big Mon and then got great with Dead Flowers!! and Mama Tried. Nice breakouts. But the acoustic bass is just a novelty. That's really not Phil's instrument. Anyway....

The third set and encores were great on many levels. I certainly enjoyed them immensely. A dream setlist. A great guest. There were a couple Ryan Adams vocal miscues in W. Rat & Stella, but nowhere near the wretched vocal abominations perpetrated on those glorious tunes by Jerry Garcia in his last 5 or so years with us. As far as I'm concerned, Ryan Adams' lack of perfect memorization was more than made up for by his great singing. And anyway, how many Dead tunes were best ever versions the first time performed??? CC Rider? Help>Slip>Franklins? Generally speaking it took a while for the band to learn them and find the magic within. Clearly, it is not fair to expect perfection from Ryan at this stage of the game. Vocal miscues aside, I'd say that Ryan Adams is a lot closer to finding the magic in these tunes, having played them so very few times, than Larry Campbell ever will be. ooops.

I thought the energy in last night's (11/1) Franklin's was a good bit higher than tonight's (11/2). There may have been some impact on the crowd from having such a recent repeat. Same with FOTD (totally unwaranted in my opinion. The Franklin's I could see if it was to accomodate the guest -- and it was cool coming out of W. Rat). I thought the Camden Terrapin out of Mountains was more powerful as well, but that might just be my perception of it (now that I've heard this Terrapin Inspiration at 3 of the four shows I've seen so far). But anyway, like I said, a dream setlist. There were a couple "up" sections in the Dark Stars. Eclipse was an inspired choice (as was the Don't Let Me Down on 11/1...dreamy!). Sugar Magnolia...yeehaww!! Very, very nice set. Can't wait for the "tape." Kudos to Phil and the band for mixing it up and the breakouts!

So let's see. Over the last couple nights we've gotten The Who, Beatles, Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd. Any wagers on which Kinks song we can look forward to on Saturday? Sex Pistols? Bowie? Clapton? Hey, those Heartbreaker teases kinda make me want the whole thing (sung by Jackie)

Heartbreaker
(Bonham/Jones/Page/Plant)

Hey fellas, have you heard the news? You know that Annie's back in town?
It won't take long just watch and see how the fellas lay their money down.
Her style is new but the face is the same as it was so long ago,
But from her eyes, a different smile like that of one who knows.

Well, it's been ten years and maybe more since I first set eyes on you.
The best years of my life gone by, here I am alone and blue.
Some people cry and some people die by the wicked ways of love;
But I'll just keep on rollin' along with the grace of the Lord above.

People talkin' all around 'bout the way you left me flat,
I don't care what the people say, I know where their jive is at.
One thing I do have on my mind, if you can clarify please do,
It's the way you call me by another guy's name when I try to make love to you.
I try to make love but it ain't no use.

Work so hard I couldn't unwind, get some money saved;
Abuse my love a thousand times, however hard I tried.
Heartbreaker, your time has come, can't take your evil way;
Go away, Heartbreaker.

I'm lovin' this tour. Have fun everybody.

OUT of this world
OUT rageous
OUT standing
OUT
OF THE BALL PARK!!!

The Nokia is the weirdest underground 21st century center of the Millenium Falcon with no organic natural ANYTHING where everywhere you stand is like being in the middle of the soundboard mix in YOUR HEAD. Is the ceiling one enormous speaker? Probably not, but it seemed that way. I heard everything, every word, every note....though sometimes with Ryan up there it did get confusing for me about all those guitars. Me, me, me. My head.

Ryan? He was GREAT! WOF came up to me AS THE SHOW STARTED and said he ran into Ryan in the hallway. I thought he was full of shit. He swore up and down truth. Took two sets to pan out, but there he was, Mister Enfant Terrible (LOVE YA RYAN, that's with LOVE) - playin Wharf Rat with Mister Lesh, just like it was in New York, long ago or not so, at a Jammys....Wharf Rat. Yup, Ryan TORE IT UP. I've been wondering what Ryan must think of Jackie and all the current goings on....well, he must think it's all okay enough! For there he is on stage playin with 'm and the MUSIC SOUNDS GREAT.

Franklin's...wasn't there one on 11/1? Exactly. All bets off, seems and it was A REAL FINE FRANKLIN'S. Dance fire boom boom roll away rolllllllaway band clang bell tower BOOM. Yes very good.

Stella Blue. Aw, it makes me cry again now. Different from the Brokedown misty tears, this is the Stella Poignancy. The Can't Win For Trying. Boy, I know that one....yup, I sure do. Rusty strings shine....and wow it was so tender and yet full of power. This is Ryan good....at his best maybe, even. Better than I could have imagined.

What else? FIRE I danced like I had hot coals in my socks. Dark Star BOOM whomp ZIIIIIIING!!!! AND THE FLOYD!!!

That was awesome, the Pink Floyd. I do believe Molitz fucked up the lyrics right at the end (kinda crucial bit there) but hey I'm in it for the music. WOW.
AND EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN IS IN TUNE
and the sun is eclipsed by the
MOOOOOOOOON


Heartbeat. Right - exactly! IT WAS THAT!! And here I thought it was just my heart pounding so loud.

TERRAPIN!!?!!?!?

AHHHHH!!!
How awesome how cool how right the fuck on Phil.

inspiration move me into the Nokia for five more nights so I can soak this mothafuckin amazing WHOOPASS lockdown YEEHAW UP!

Mysteries seem very BRIGHT in Times Square -
and statements in VAIN IN DEEEEEEEED
but yeah yup Ryan and ALL let's chug into the fabled and FAMED
TERRAPIN STATION!!!

And now it's Mags and there's more dancing and I already left my head over somewhere over by Passenger.

It was fun.

And then the encore, and then YUP band wow into JAM and back into the Star (I forgot we hadn't finished) and then WOW
close this fuckin shit up with the
BOX.

loved it.
love ya Phil.
LOVE YA PHILZONE
you all are very cute and smiley.

I can't wait to dance with you later!
Someone gas up the Millenium Falcon....

WE'RE GOING ON A LITTLE GALAXY CRUISE

"There were a couple Ryan Adams vocal miscues in W. Rat & Stella"

Totally forgivable; this was a show where the high points smother stuff like these few slips on an unfamiliar line or two. Mostly RA delivered an awesome and inspired performance.

As to repeats, I've seen 3 shows on this tour (Camden, Halloween, and last night) and already got a few myself, but last night's renditions were so tasty I didn't even care (I didn't see 11/1, but it would be hard to imagine a delivery on Franklin's that could be any stronger than last night's) . And I'm not so sure that the Terrapin last night wasn't better than Camden's (the start of it from the dead stop at the end of Eclipse seemed even more dramatic somehow, as good as it was in Camden, another 3-set gem - yes, the first sets at both were fun, yet pedestrian, but the acoustic sets were both tasty treats that elevated the shows, though I'd chose last night's just for DEAD FLOWERS). Terrapin was the one song where RA kind of took a break and didn't stand out anywhere in the song. It was like "OK guys, I don't know this one well enough yet, so you carry it".

...and for the record Huck, I though RA was FUCKING AWFUL at the Jammy's doing Wharf Rat; he walked off before he could even finish that version, kind of left it hanging. Last night though, he was the RA I've heard his fans rave about.

Yeah, I actually thought he was okay at the Jammys....I was skeptical as he stepped on the stage with lots of diva hair twitchin and that big ass red(?) guitar but by the end of that Jammy Rat I thought Ryan ADDED. I could see the genesis of e musical friendship that night. Unfortunately the payoff was a long time coming....as in -

two and a half years coming.

No time for a full review, but concur with everything above. First two sets were pleasant, agreeable country-tinged rock. Enjoyable and sincere.

Ryan took to show to a whole new level and it was really an honor to be there. While Wharf Rat was an obvious choice, it put the spotlight directly on him from the git-go. The Franklins was just thrilling and Phil sported a proud and manic grin throughout, just beaming. When they dropped into Stella (after China Doll references) i thought "jeez, he (ryan) sure doesn't shy from the spotlight." A remarkable, passionate Stella. If any Ryan bashers weren't won over last night, they simply never will be.

Just an impressive, original, fresh, exciting night of music!

I'm going to ask this until somebody can confirm---was Allison Krauss at side-stage last night or not ???




Hey Paddy--



I'm sorry, I drifted off to sleep before I saw your question last night. When you asked me about Kimock being out there, I'm assuming that you were referring to my post about "Stuff". Yes, it seems that "Stuff" has evolved to the point of being the whole band, excepting Weir. At the Post-Gazette Pavilion show, my gf pointed out that "Stuff" has become the point where all the kids get to play in the sandbox, until Daddy's done with his breather, and jumps back in the sandbox, and it's back to business. At Post-Gazette, for me, it was BY FAR the most inspired playing of the Ratdog set. And that's saying something, given that Peggy-O, Black-Throated Wind and Estimated (excepting those GOD-DAMNED verse-pauses) were the most inspiration from Weir I'd seen since the '02 Other Ones tour.


It also helped that Warren had come out before "Stuff" to sit in on Uncle John's Band. I was bummed that he didn't contribute harmonies to UJB, but in hindsight, Ratdog has their own hit-and-miss harmony vocal set-up. Warren was either being humble not to chime in, or it's possible that they didn't set up a mic for him. I can't remember at this point.


But he stayed out for "Stuff", and the payoff was complete. Warren and Kimock trading riffs for possibly the first time since PLF '99. I could very well be wrong on that assertion, though.

That was good stuff...........pun intended.

FACTMAN:

In the OS thread on this I said there were two women vocalists off stage, past the curtain, but next to Molitz on ECLIPSE. Unless you were up at the rail you never would have known they were there. Still, I couldn't see who they were; I can't say if either was Krauss - they were just set too far back and it was too dark (ECLIPSE, right?).

Thought the show was great. Ryan brought a spacy jam element some say was missing from other shows.

I thought the first set was strong. Jackie did a nice job with Passenger. I'm not a big P&F or Ratdog Bird Song fan but last night's sounded great. The show started off solid and didn't let up (except for a moment or two in the acoustic portion) it only got more intense..

Acoustic set didn't do that much for me. I mean it was cool and sounded good, I just didn't hear any passion in Jackie's singing. He sounded good and the words were clear but the set seeemed to lack some soul. No biggie, it was fun, Dead Flowers was memorable. A depressing Song but cool choice. Mama Tried was the perfect capper.

Third set for me was a blast. I've never seen Ryan Adams with P&F and I'm a fan of his so it was a real treat. Good news, he delivered. Truth be told he did sort of take over the guitars, kind of left Larry behind. Larry was a good sport and played along at some points very well but it seemed like Ryan was just doing his thing

The set was inspired to say the least.
I wasn't that psyched to see Stella so soon after Wharf Rat but it was a great version and at the end I was happy.

Eclipse was just plain cool. One of those moments where you're going "Are they really playing this. It sounds so good!!" Thank you Steve Molitz (who by the way, did a nice job all night). The Whole Dark Star>Eclipse>Terrapin was a thing of monstrous beauty. Just off the charts and something so classic Phil & Friends.

Encore was made very interesting by the addition of Dark Star. It meant we got a nice jam to get it going. I really thought we would get a perfunctory encore after the thrid set going so far off but no, they kept the energy going. Box sounded a little cluttered, not as pretty as it sometimes is ut great to hear as always.

Great show. I think extraordinary.

for years I thought the GD could have OWNED Dead Flowers. they could really have done it right. One of my top 5 songs ever

Glad to hear Ryan brought it. Too bad he didn't drop a "how ya like me now, haters!" as they left the stage

Definitely envious of those in the house last night

:::Someone gas up the Millenium Falcon....

WE'RE GOING ON A LITTLE GALAXY CRUISE:::


HERE HERE!!!!!!


turned on a bunch of rookies last night... they loved it

that said

can't wait to hang with the crafty vets tonight

too fried to offer up much more than a "that was fuckin SICK" right now



STORM ON EVERYONE



Well, when youre sitting there
In your silk upholstered chair
Talking to some rich folks that you know
Well I hope you wont see me
In my ragged company
You know I could never be alone

Take me down little susie, take me down
I know you think youre the queen of the underground
And you can send me dead flowers every morning
Send me dead flowers by the mail
Send me dead flowers to my wedding
And I wont forget to put roses on your grave

Well, when youre sitting back
In your rose pink cadillac
Making bets on kentucky derby day
Ill be in my basement room
With a needle and a spoon
And another girl to take my pain away

Take me down little susie, take me down
I know you think youre the queen of the underground
And you can send me dead flowers every morning
Send me dead flowers by the mail
Send me dead flowers to my wedding
And I wont forget to put roses on your grave

Take me down little susie, take me down
I know you think youre the queen of the underground
And you can send me dead flowers every morning
Send me dead flowers by the us mail
Say it with dead flowers at my wedding
And I wont forget to put roses on your grave
No I wont forget to put roses on your graaaaaaave

when they went into the second verse of dark star for the encore, i actually wanted it to just end after the "transitive nightfall of diamonds...." line. Walking out of the show in that frame of mind would have been just amazing

I'm going tonight and was wondering if anyone can provide any insight on the venue? Such as was it crowded? easy to move around? should me and my wife ditch our jackets in the car or is it easy to check them (the weather today SUCKS rain/wind). Was it hot (temperature that is) inside the venue? Any help is greatly appreciated !!

here's my quick take on the place

the sound is superb everywhere. the entire ceiling and side walls are lined with baffle-tiles, which prevents hall echo - almost everywhere in the place, the sound is clean and excellent - it is just louder up front

it is crowded, but not over-crowded, the lower floor is very tight, the next level is tight, seating is good - this would be a great venue at 80% full

there is a coat check place

temperature was okay, a little hot thursday night for me, fine on friday night - i was not on the floor on either night

hope that helps

thx for the info grubby, as far as the next level being tight but seating is good, what do you mean? is it possible to grab a seat on the second level? also how about lines at the bars? The line at the ratdog show in central park was 45 minutes long really sucked. Is it easy to get a beer at the venue? Thx again, greatly appreciated !!

I had no problems last night. If you get in by 8pm you can get a good spot near rail of the second level. Best spot in the house. Seats didn't fill until after 8pm. Seemed to be room in the back of the second level. Never made it down to first level.

No lines at the bars or bathrooms. Muliple full bars. The one near thr restrooms neever had a line. $9 for a call drink. Not horrible.

Does anyone know how long the various sets lasted?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Question Authority (2hard2handle) on Saturday, November 03, 2007 - 04:02 pm: Edit Post

I hung on the rail both nights. You get there at 6 and you'll be a rail rat. Even coming in by 7:15 or even 7:30 you will not be any further than 3 deep from the stage. By show time the floor is filled. Gping for drinks is like being in the commodities trading pit. He who speaks up quickly and shouts the loudest will get served. I left the rail for the lower level bar right after Passenger and was back on the rail before they opened the acoustic set. making that trip carrying drinks is a bit of a challenge, as people give you that "yeah right; you're going to where you were before" look as you say "coming through". This happens, because even in a smallish venue like this one, you never pass the same folks in fighting your way back in as the ones you squeezed past on the way out.

When they do the 2-set format (which I would expect tonight), the first set is usually 6 songs and lasts for an hour+ (5-10 minutes) and the second lasts for an hour 40-45 minutes. i didn't time last night, but in the 3-set format the first set loses one song and is no more than an hour or maybe even a bit less. The acoustic set is 5 songs and is probably 30-40 minutes. the final set is about the same length in same formats, so an hour 40 or so. Last night they blew right past midnight, which I think in a union shop like this one costs them, so that surprised me. If had it been a normal length encore they would have beat the clock.

I disagree, I thought he nailed Wharf Rat that night, even though he was drinking whiskey straight from the bottle.

Third set was just over the top

Ryan was just great with Wharf Rat and Stella blue - at the end of stella he forgot the final lines - conveyed that to Phil who kept the jam going, got a stagehand to write out the final lyrics brought them on stage and Ryan delivered the ending, it was likely not very noticeable. Dark Star was very aggressive and strong. Phil did not stop smileing the whole set. Ryan did not step on anybody's toes - and Jackie really added some good leads to some of the big jams - don't doubt his chops for a second.

One for the ages....

That Bar is BLX on 43rd. Just head down Broadway one block from the Nokia to 43rd, hang a left, and it is about half a block awayon the left(?orth) side. It is just past the Heartland Brewey(which has decent beer and food, but BLX has some great Belgian beer and good food).

This was without a doubt the best show of either leg of the tour so far - outpacing the Trey/Glens Falls show (guess it takes a guest w/substance problems to fire them up?)

Hi y'all!
What's the deal with the lack of girls up front?
I noticed it big-time at the Baltimore show and my friend commented on it after this show. I feel bad for Phil, knowin how much he grooves on the give and take between band and fans, having the fan section dominated by a bunch of 40-somthing white guys. Sure I'm immature and all but I can't be alone in thinking dancing hippy girls are more fun to watch than 40-somthing white guys like me.

>>What's the deal with the lack of girls up front?<<

Unfortunately, the 40-something white guys (at least the ones I encountered on 10/31, 11/1 and 11/2) are all assholes who have no problem physically pushing a girl out of the way to get to the front.

I couldn't believe how many big tall guys shoved me out of the way so they could stand in front of me.

NOT COOL. I hated the Nokia crowds. C'mon...who pushes someone a full 8 inches shorter out of the way? My experiences on/near the rail in Santa Barbara, Berkeley and Den.Fillmore were vastly different, no asshole men at those shows and no lack women up front...

How dissapointing and rude!
Chivalry may be dead but graciousness should rule the rail!
I wonder how much boorish crowd behavior affects the music?
You should try a Tea Leaf Green show.
