    "Mom it's my birthday!"

    Getting a hometown show (well, just down the road) for my birthday. Pretty great present.

    Damn 10 years since they returned to Mississippi. In that 10 year span they played Mississippi 4 times so far, and it will be a 5th this summer. Not bad for podunk Mississippi! The best modern Mississippi show is easily 5/17/22. That Brandon show kinda kicked last year.

    Re: ***Official Southaven 2023 Thread***

    I actually like Southaven! Itís a better area than Brandon IMO. Itís basically suburbia at its finest, like every other venue in this country. Itís nice for what it is though. This Venue has a huge lot if I remember correctly. The baseball complex is right across the street, and that adds to the parking. 2015 was a fun show, 2013 was one of the worst Iíve seen

    I remember when they announced the 2013 show I was so stoked. I’m from Mississippi, and was so stoked that they were playing in my home state for the first time in like 20 years. I remember I never even heard of Southaven or the venue at that time, and had to look it up haha.

    Look at the thread traffic 10 years ago compared to now. Itís so sad, this band really fell off the face of the earth in the last 10 years https://antsmarching.org/forum/showt...en+2013&page=2

    Loooong time lurker here and decided to finally jump in and post. So glad to the band continues to hit this area of the south. I saw the 2013 show here but I caught them in Tuscaloosa in 2015 instead. Still have my lawn ticket to that canceled 2020 show! A meaningless souvenir now I suppose...

    Totally agree about the Brandon show last year. The 2018 show that was extremely up and down, but at least we got a fantastic Typical Situation then...

    Last years Brandon show was amazing. My first pit and it was a great one to be in for the first time. I also traveled to Tampa and did pit there. That show was amazing and so different from Brandon. I’m excited to see the upgrades to Snowden Grove. I wasn’t a big fan of the previous layout.

    Re: ***Official Southaven 2023 Thread***

    Tuscaloosa 15 was a great show too. The 2013 show at this venue is hands down one of the top 5 worst shows of any artist I've ever seen. Brandon last year kinda stoked the flame for me to want to still see the band once a year. I was very on the border of not going and just eating the ticket cost but I rolled with it. Glad I got to be there.

    From what I understand, the only reason the venue is in Southaven is FedEx has a stronghold on Memphis, and the FedEx Forum has first right of refusal for any acts that want to play in Memphis.

    Agree that 2013 show was real bad. Rapunzel was the only highlight, with Dave breaking a string, then getting visibly annoyed when his tech wouldn't get him a new guitar fast enough. Not only was the setlist bad, but the sound was trash from wind. I remember Boyd's sound was in and out the whole night.

    Confirmed and will be hitting this show from Colorado. Looking forward to doing some fun things in Memphis day of and day after. Anything I need to experience food/drink wise while I’m there?

    I will tape the show if no other tapers attend. I'd like to just go in and have a good time since it's my birthday but when duty calls I will be there.

    My BBQ choice is Central BBQ. General food and beer selection is great at the Flying Saucer. If you are looking for high-end food/atmosphere, Flight is a good choice.

    Wiseacre Brewing gets a lot of praise, but I find it a little over-rated. I prefer Crosstown Brewing and High Cotton Brewing personally.

    Re: ***Official Southaven 2023 Thread***

    Well I'm in. Was about to get a $135 seat, thought about it for a couple seconds, backed out, and bought a $95 seat in Sec 18 instead. Figured that's close enough and I'll save a few bucks.

    Haven't been here since the 2013 show. Not to totally keep dog-piling on that show, but I'm hoping the biggest improvement is the sound. Had to watch the 2013 show from almost the back of the lawn (could have been a lot closer, but the rest of my group thought hey the back of the lawn will just be easy!) and my goodness the sound was bad! From my memory I think it was decently windy that night, but sometimes the sound would be clear and then the next moment it'd sound really boxed in. That's the best way I can describe it.

    Oh well, here's to another tour!

    Check out the Ticketmaster map for this show. I've never seen a DMB show so undersold. This is worse than last year's Vancouver gig

    I realize this show is likely a make-good for never being able to make up the 2020 Covid show, but based on last yearís attendance, I feel like they wouldíve been better off trying a two-night stand in Huntsville at the Orion like Phish is doing, or at the very least come back for a midweek show. That ticket map is sad to look at considering how tough a ticket so many other venues are this year.

    Re: ***Official Southaven 2023 Thread***

    I'm pretty surprised at how poorly this one's selling. I wonder how much it has to do with no one knowing the venue is reopening. It's also in a weird spot because a lot of Memphis people won't drive to Southaven, even tho it's only like 25 min away.

    But in fairness, the Nashville show is mediocrely too. The upper deck is still basically full.

    Only way I got to this is if tickets are like less than $50 which I would assume it will be

    Pits for face on Stubhub while Ticketmaster only sells platinum. I have never seen that before.

    Is there much parking/tailgating scene at this venue? Decided to add this stop on last minute since it isn't selling well and tickets are cheap.

    In there past there's been a lot scene. It's not your major Alpine Valley or anything, but usually people will tailgate.
