Where is everyone staying for this show? Contemplating hitting this show after Peach but a little leery that all available accommodations seem like quite a hike. Don't want to get stranded!!

I got the "Preferred" seats for this, I called the Box Office yesterday and they said it's reserved for the first 5 rows or so.

Plus Dr. and Mrs. Trousers.

We are staying at the HJ in Willianstown. A bit of a drive, but not too bad.

Great Intel. We got preferred too but had no idea what that meant. Thank you.

Too funny. We did the same thing. I had no idea what it was, but I figured what's 20 extra bucks. Glad I did.

As a Solid Sound veteran, I couldn't be more excited for MMJ at this venue. It's absolutely one of my favorite places to see a show. Get there early and have your mind blown by the modern art museum in the old factory before your mind is blown by our favorite band!

As for places to stay, we've always gotten by with camping. There are some great places nearby, just gotta poke around. Historic Valley campground is right in town, and beautiful Savoy is up the road by 25 minutes or so.

Camping at Historic Valley Campground on Windsor Lake in North Adams is excellent. Also close by is camping at Clarksburg State Forrest, next town north of North Adams and a short drive.
More camping options in the surrounding area, some within a half hour drive. Holiday Inn and The Porches inn bookend Mass MoCA but hurry to book there. Several good places to eat in North Adams close to MoCA too.

Bummer, looks like we missed out on the Porches. Looks like a nice place.

We will be coming from a brief stint in Woodstock NY. Hoping for a decent BnB for Aug 12th.

I also got preferred tickets. I called right after pre-sale started, as there was no online option yet. Since I was already calling, I also confirmed preferred was the area directly in front of the stage (as compared something close, but off to the side). I bought two just because. Why not? I might be able to offer the second to one of you.

Camping might be a good idea. I am kinda close, but not close enough where I feel comfortable driving alone (upwards of 2 hours). Maybe we can all do the same campground?

Does anyone have an extra preferred ticket I could buy?? Looking for two ideally, but I'll take what I can get.

EDIT - Got' em. Thanks!

Still looking for tips on where to stay though!

Does anyone know if there is a curfew? Last show of the summer for the boys, wouldn't hate a 3 hour plus set.

I had a blast a Forest Hills Saturday and thought they were unbelievable as always but you could tell they were rushed and the strict 10 curfew was on there minds.

Wilco has played past 11 as recently as the last Solid Sound fest, so I'm hopeful we could get a barnburner!
