Everyone says we needed another large music venue. I disagree -- preferring our small music venues to things the size of the coliseum -- but for the sake of moving on, lets, um, move on.
Here's what you need to know:
-- Parking is pricey. Get a ride or car pool if you can. $30 isnt bad split 6 ways
-- No chairs allowed unless they're legless (so like, those foldable stadium pad kind)
-- Bag check happened but wasn't overly intrusive
-- The walk. Ohhhhh the walk. It's like half a mile into the amphitheater so dont wear heels or anything that rubs.
-- Prices are really high. $10 a beer, $14 a mixed drink. Food is similarly priced.
-- You can tailgate in the parking lot but you run the risk of not getting a good lawn seat
-- You could get a good lawn seat if you get in early but then you also have to endure hours of boredom before the show
-- There is a fun little setup in the middle of the field where two dudes were playing piano and there were drinking games set up (cups, beer pong.)
-- The brick and mortar bathrooms had long lines but the portapotties seemed to deal with the overflow well.
-- there are cocktail tables on the sides of the lawn near a railing. I think we'll snag one of those next time. They're close in and close to the bar.
All in all, I do appreciate the venue. The sound system and security both seemed top notch and the setup is nice. However, I'm going to have to really really really want to see someone to buy tickets for this spot. The 30 minute drive there, the hike from the parking lot, the scalping at the concession stand and then the inevitable slow going line to get out just mean that it's less of a fun concert experience and more of a road trip.
