Got a GA ticket. Not happy about the price or the venue but I need some live Jacket.

Should be a good show, even though the venue's not amazing and they cut off early.

what time is the curfew?

Gary Clark Jr will take the stage at 6.  Can't MMJ go on at 7 and play for 3 solid hours?

10pm is a bummer ONLY because of the gary clark junior opener, its a pretty big name for an opener so there will be a proper allotment for him to play.  mmj would have to go one before 8 to get more than 2 hours.  and if doors are 6, the GCJr is probably 7-7:45?  This may be a short mmj show.  thats my only complaint.  im more than happy to take the train out, and deal with whatever but really hoping its not a short show

any chance the curfew is later on saturdays?

anybody go to the Alabama Shakes show there last year? I know that was on a Saturday, I happened to by in NYC that night and was considering going.
That show had Drive by Truckers opening so similar format in terms of opening to main act popularity.
Wondering if it ended at 10.

Doors Open: 5:00 PM

From the Ad.  So GCJ could go on at 6:15.

really hoping lack of clarity for 2017 means the band is dumping WU


I sure hope so. However, I hope they send us our 2016 7" that was supposed to ship out.

Just kind of insane of them to ask us to buy a 2016 digital only and then re-up for a possible 2017 deluxe.

just did some quick research and 10 PM is confirmed, looks like the only exception was Paul Simon because the show started late due to sever weather.
I love Jacket but this has the makings on being a pretty disappointing show, I might pass.

oh lord - it will be fine!  Artpark 2015 started early and ended at 10 and it was actually awesome to have time to go out afterward.  Jacket show will be a somewhat standard 2:15 and change with a likely sit in from Gary. 

can't fathom why there would be complaints
What's in here won't disappear

I'm just happy to have a show 45 minutes from where I live.  After RR last year and Mexico in 11 days, my wallet needs a bit of a break when it comes to MMJ.

Agreed that is too much to ask (to pay for digital and then deluxe later on).  I'll re-up for the 2017 deluxe when offered and go with regular on sales.   And dumping WU would be more than fine with probably everyone on this forum.  I spoke with Patrick after a Spanish Gold show a few years ago, and he said he wanted the fan club to be run more in house like the way Pearl Jam does it.

I got tickets in the Lower Bowl reserve which has floor access and is on risers next to the soundboard.  I went for the Replacements and Deer Tick two years ago and those seats seemed to be the best.  First rows in 201/301/901/801 will also be great.
