    Suggestions for hotels that are walkable to and from the venue? I don’t want to deal with trying to find an Uber after nor do I want to pay the post concert surge pricing.

    Re: ***Official Bend, OR 2020 thread***

    I’ve never been to Bend. I’m thinking I will want a reserved seat, especially since I noticed chairs (even low profile) and blankets will not be allowed for that show. Also, I didn’t see tix on TM. Do you have to purchase directly from the venue for that place? I don’t like buying from WH for reserved seating because I’m picky and pretty much must have an aisle seat and WH doesn’t allow me to select my seats. I haaaaaate not being on the aisle.

    Any other info on this venue? I will be a first timer. I see its all GA and is looking pretty small from pictures I see...also doesn't look like much of a pitch to the grass. How is sound/sightlines?

    Not that so much as I don’t like GA. I want to be able to walk in and have a reserved spot rather than have to line up hours early. It’s one thing to do that for lawn terraces at the Gorge, but not for a spot to stand at a non-Gorge venue. Lawn terraces at the Gorge are awesome and well worth the effort and lining up at noon for.

    Went and saw Avett Brothers and Jason Isbell/Father John Misty last year at Les Schwab. Sound and sightlines are great, and with it being a fairly small venue and people of Bend being pretty laid back, you don't have to show up super early to be in a great spot. They don't allow chairs or blankets, but they usually have blankets to give out within the venue, and you just have to give them back at the end of the night.

    As for people asking about hotels, The Hampton Inn and Hilton Garden Inn are super close to the venue, with Springhill Suites being fairly close too. Bend is a pretty small town, so really easy to get around, plus I'm sure there are a lot of AirBnB's around that area.

    Hilton Garden Inn, My Place, Hampton Inn, Residence Inn are all close. Hampton and HGI are the closet but the others are <10 minute walk from the venue. Downtown is less than 1.5 miles away, not a bad option if you want to walk there post show as there isn't much happening around the venue.

    I can see LSA from my office! Can't wait for the show, love it when they comes to town!

    This is actually a great venue. Does not feel over crowded. Bend is a fun city. Lots of Breweries. Make time to float down the river.

    Also, if you have extra days, try a VRBO in Sunriver. We've gone there for a week for the past two summers. Booked and going again this Aug, missing DMB but able to go to Bend Brewfest. This will be our 2nd year with our group of 3 other families (first year was just my family). Super fun. Lots to do there with your family/kids, just about 20-30 mins south of Bend, depending on traffic.

    Go to the Broom Closet (secret/hidden bar) at McMenamin's.

    Looks like my request for these tickets might just go through. Staying with a buddy that just moved here with his family from Hawaii.

    I'm not in for this show yet - but I figure if I post here, it might send some good juju into the universe and I'll find someone selling 2 tickets at face value

    Went to Bend in 2018 and loved it. Didn't think I'd be able to this year and of course, things changed but not until after the on sale date Keep those fingers crossed for me!

    So I just learned today that this venue is all GA Lawn. That's actually pretty cool.
