    Also, doing this show means we are skipping Lumineers with Gregory Allen Isakov in Austin. I'm getting more and more tempted to just go to the Lumineeers and skip Choctaw. Opinions?
    is it worth it? only you can answer that.

    if you have to pick the answer is obviously gorge.

    In 2020, that's highly debatable.

    Erwin Center is, in fact, a piece of shit and I can't wait until it's a pile of rubble.

    Same.

    From 2000 through 2019, I only went to that hell hole four times:

    Roger Waters: The Wall
    Radiohead
    The Who
    Lady Gaga

    This year alone, I'm going to end up there four fucking times.

    Tool
    Chris Stapleton
    Sturgil Simpson
    The Lumineers


    It's like no one wants to play the awesome amphitheater here anymore. Maybe it's the horrific new name.

    Thread title should have been edited to an underwhelming sentence: Come see for yourself. Like on "The Office"..."It is your birthday."

    I made a pro con list. Pro for OK was 2 1/2 hours less driving and legal gambling. That was the only things I could come up with...

    It sounds like you are picking The Lumineers over DMB, is that right?

    that's not what the debate is. DMB > Lumineers
    Correct. Plus I'll have already seen DMB 3X at the Gorge 2 weeks earlier, just not sure how much DMB I need this year.

    I didn't realize it was a total shit venue. That makes me way less excited.

    They've already had multiple hits though... also their last 3 albums are wayyy better than DMBs last 3 albums. Outside of AFTW it isn't even really close.

    too late to edit the above post... one more thing I forgot to mention is, if there really is a possibility of them doing a fall/winter tour with TX dates (not ACL... f that) then I'd be a lot more inclined to skip OK, especially if the fall/winter tour is playing a new record (providing it isn't Stand Up 2.0)

    I'm not skipping a 2 night run an hour from my house (unless I dont get pits, cuz f those seat prices). especially when it's at a casino (I got problems).

    I'll also absolutely hit up a potential fall texas run, too.

    the fall run wouldn't affect my decision one way or another about OK, but i obviously know it would certainly affect MOST people's.

    the OK venue being so small, I'm not sure it factors into the idea or hinders a fall run at all.

    Apparently, I'm skipping the two night run... the wife just made it clear that we are already doing 3 nights at the Gorge and she wants to see the Lumineers and she just bought tickets for that. Guess I'm deleting my request from Warehouse for OK... one less person to fight you guys for pit tickets.

    I know they do. I'm just a degenerate gambler, so i don't gamble in OK. I make myself drive two hours to KS to gamble (or fly to Vegas).

    Anyone staying at the Best Western Markita in Durant? Hoping the WH comes through with tickets, but $499 a night at the casino is crazy!

    No band and no indian casino is worth that kinda money, let alone in fucking Oklahoma. It's not a beach in Mexico. $2500 for a couple nights at the Choctaw(+seats) could make for an easy trip to any of the destination tour stops.

    Pit lottery and Best Western 15 minutes down the road for us. If we're lucky.
