Re: ~~~Official Texas Two Step 2019~~~

I loved 360 last year. So easy to get a pit ticket. hang out midway back and you have plenty of room. Might be a little further back than some pits, but still a lot closer than I am at most shows.

    I wonder with them playing in Rio in late September if that would make them likely for a return to ACL a week later.

    It's only been 10 years.

    These are fair points. It is also one of the best venues to go to if you have never had a chance to be up close and you want to be just because of the ease of getting a pit ticket. I guess I'm an elitist and I like the exclusivity of the tiny pit in Houston (although it is looking like I may be on the outside looking in on that this year).

    You think so? I've lived here all my life. I love this city. I still can't sit here though and pretend that it is an awesome venue or anything. It's in a bad part of town and is one of the most basic looking venues I have been to. I really wish we had something more interesting/unique. Considering the amount of people/land/money/growth going on around here I feel like there should be something more (and I don't count Jerry World).

    --venue isnt awesome, but i'm not there for the venue.
    --bad part of town? you're in a fence in parking lot drinking and eating....in 25 years i've never experienced an issue. just don't leave the park.
    --basic looking? again, i'm there for the show, not the venue. If i wanted architecture and design i'd go to museums.

    something more? Toyota Music Factory is BADASS. i mean, BADASS. except the low number of bathrooms, but even that hasn't proven to be an issue for me. it's a smaller venue, which obviously is a factor here (with the band).

    keep in mind, i lived and worked in NYC for 6 years, so the idea of bad parts of town and grunge is a little less significant to me. That's the dirtiest and grungiest city i've ever experienced, so everything is a ritz compared to that shithole city.

    I understand what you are saying. Dallas as a whole is awesome and the Perot Museum is one of the coolest museums I have ever been to. Yes, as long as you are inside the fence you are pretty safe. The area though doesn't exactly put Dallas's best boot forward (I had to... I don't even own a pair of boots).

    My thing though is, I think the venue itself heavily influences the band. You look at places like Alpine and SPAC and Gorge and the shows they get and the way the band feels about those places. I wish Dallas had something close to that. I will say, the venue does influence me some too. There is something about Gorge and getting to spend a day in great weather surrounded by beauty. Dallas, you send the day in hot weather surrounded by poverty. It sucks, I wish we could change that. Not just by moving the venue but by making the city as a whole better but that is an entirely different discussion.

    Yeah, Toyota is really nice. The band though won't fit there (yet).

    NYC is a ton of fun to visit. I don't have any real desire to live there and yeah, it's dirty. 8.5M people in a small area will do that to a place.

    you can't compare a generic live nation venue to SPAC Alpine and Gorge (the big 3). i agree about those places and the vibe that influences the band for sure though.

    I guess that is my point/complaint. I wish we had something more like that. We have the space (maybe not the landscape though).

    The venue is fine, I just personally would never travel here to go to a show. If we ever moved away I wouldn't feel at all compelled to come back for a show unless I was already visiting someone.

    oh, I wouldn't either.

    although living in NYC for 6 years, i came down for the two step every year. It also was to visit my friends and do our thing (and I travel for a lot of shows to begin with).

    i don't travel (plane) for 1 night stands, regardless.

    Yeah, my family is Dallas and hers is Houston. I'm sure I would still end up doing the shows if we moved.

    I also agree with the above. If a one night stand isn't within a 5 hour drive I'm not doing it.

    We have done every major multi night venue I think except SPAC and I guess Deer Creek if you consider that a major venue. We've done Red Rocks, Gorge, Alpine, MSG, Greek Theater, West Palm Beach. Am I missing any?

    Deer Creek is a major venue. I'd say it's in the next tier after Big3 (with WPB and Camden)

    missing Camden which is a HIGHLY underrated run/weekend.

    Sounds like choosing Houston and Dallas as my fly-to shows this year was a questionable decision...

    It depends; Texas shows are not Gorge / SPAC / Alpine, but:

    But Woodlands is a great venue, with a unique preparty plan
    And DFW has one of the best tailgates year in, year out at any DMB show.

    I am shocked... I am massively shocked.

    My 01 account was decline for the premium pit for Houston but they gave me normal Pit for Dallas.

    My buddies 98 account actually scored me Houston Pit but gave me Dallas Uppers (further proof to me that Houston is seniority and Dallas is random).


    Also, I'm sorry if I have freaked anyone out who is coming in town for the Dallas/Houston run. Don't be scared! It is great people and a lot of fun. You'll be really happy you came. As madpiker said though, it isn't Gorge or anything but it's a great tradition. I'm glad I do it every year.

    No worries, I'm making the trek regardless! Was confirmed for Dallas uppers so that was my final deciding factor (was letting fate, aka WH decide if I was actually going to go.) And I'm looking forward to the tailgating. I'm mostly just excited that I get to see them in 3 months instead of having to wait until almost September for the Gorge. Perfect summer bookends.

    Woodlands 2 confirmed lowered, put in request for PIT. '99 member.

    I paid for premium pit last year, was fun, but I just did basic request this year.
