Yup. I know most of the venues they play are basketball arenas, but Viejas is an old college ball haunt, mostly made of concrete with some creaky folding chairs on the floor and benches up top. Not exactly state of the art, like Chase Center. It's just remarkable how great their shows in Viejas have been over the years. The sound was crystal clear, Maynard sounded great (that scream in The Grudge!), and Adam/Justin/Danny played close to a flawless set. And the setlist itself was perfect. Still blown away.


Oh, and I'll add that I do like the way Viejas' concessions are all outdoors. And getting in/out of the place is a snap. Always have a great time there.

JWB just wants to mosh.

Not having to get there when doors open, then losing your place when you get a beer plus having to stand up for CC Trip...

I'll take seats every time...

But like I said I'm hella old. I'm probably turning into my parents just like that commercial

Oh man, I am thinking about some mid-west shows. Anyone going to Chicago? And how is that Grand Rapids venue?

I just meant that it’s antiseptic to the vibe of the show. People standing five feet from each other on the floor, nodding to ‘Hooker’ with a cocktail in one hand just doesn’t do it for me.
