    Decent slope allows ankle deep drainage of rain water and piss to cool off your feet during the show.

    Stage is about 10 feet high (maybe a bit of an exaggeration), so if you're on the rail you have a hard time seeing the back of the stage unless you're tall.

    This comment is a good reminder of why I haven't missed this place on the schedule the past few years. But it's 35 minutes from my house, so I feel obligated to go.

    This shit hole was the scene of one of my all time DMB show moments. Power went out in the middle of Granny during the usual and expected storm. Music stopped, although I believe Carter may have kept playing. Place went dark and quiet. Emergency generators kicked in and after about a minute with power restored the band picked up where they left off.

    That 09 granny was so sick. Super cool to see Copperpot uploade it. Shocked they're coming back but I've got time to blow, so let's party!

    That has been the problem in the past.
    As a result I am passing on any WH request for this show. (Only one I will need in the “series” (having separate series is a cash grab in itself for which Capshaw and his cronies and not TM/LN are to blame)
    I just need a single and will likely be a able to pick up a good one somewhere along the way without paying additional $30.00 to ship me a single ticket here in Canada.

    If I'm putting in a request for a single, do you think I would have a better shot at pit or lower? Or would it be best to just wait until the public sale and see what happens?

    I don't think the single matters. Pretty sure that warehouse confirms in pairs and when it's an odd number that's how they end up with the tickets for the instants.

    So, the family will be in Buffalo/Niagra Falls this week. What are the odds? Thinking of trying to attend this show with the 11yo. What's the venue like? Would it be hard to be dropped off/picked up by my husband (not a DMB fan)? Or would I need to drive?

    Also, any tips or advice about things to do in the area, besides the Falls, for a family with an 11yo and a 13yo?

    ETA: We'll have passports.

    You could spend the day at the park before the show. Venue has a reputation that is well deserved. Not the most desirable place, but always a solid setlist. If you're looking at Niagara Falls, head to the Canadian side and Clifton Hill. Tons of fun stuff for the kids.

    What reputation? Is there a safety concern?

    No safety concern, it just always rains, and parking in the main grass lot may make you sit there for 3 hours after show end. Plus its a giant tent, not a solid structure...

    Gotcha. Yeah, I was looking at pictures of the venue. Not awesome but hopefully I'll get under the tent. And my husband was going to drop off and pick up so hopefully that will alleviate some of the parking woes.

    Also, Canalside in downtown Buffalo is pretty cool. Buffalo Science Museum is good as well. My older son attended a couple birthday parties there and had a blast both times.
