What's shaking, kids? TWoL comes at you this week as summer tour is in full swing, and we waste no time getting down to the nitty gritty. While we were bringing you the goods last night, Noob Laura was on the scene in Great Woods with her Noob Mom. And speaking of moms, Steve fills us in on the PNC shows, where UnoMom got her phirst taste of the band on night 2. She was impressed by the Chuck Norris look-alike on guitar and was quite the trooper. You go UnoMom!
We got a sultry dose of Emilie this week as she gave us her thoughts on the Bethel run. Magical sums it up nicely. She waxed poetic on the benefits of being a Bethel Woods member, the lush lawn, friendly staff, and tidy bathrooms. Basically, don't sleep on tour openers, especially if their in Bethel!
Moving forward, we've got Camden and MPP up this weekend, where all of TWoL East will be in attendance. There won't be a mobile studio, but you can rest assured that we'll be keeping you updated through the social media tronz and have a full recap for you next week. A quick ticket check shows prices holding steady, and fairly low for some of the southern shows. That might change soon, however. Pro tip: always check the box office if you strike out in lot. Also, we've discovered that if you already have tickets and there's a re-release, you have a good chance at getting an upgrade via the box office or via phone.
There was a slew of voicemails this week. Thanks for all the calls! We'll hear from a Rodney Dangerfield sound-alike, Mountain Jam, and the weekends shows. Keep those lot reports coming!
Lastly, we got so caught up talking about the Phish that we just about ran out of time for other news:
Long short, Camp Bisco VIP tickets are selling fast so don't sleep on them. Steve and Nobb Laura will there on the scene providing complete coverage. Be sure to say hi.
Hidden Track is giving away two general admission tickets to Governor's Ball in their "Everybody Wins When We Plug Something And In Return They Offer Us Free Shit To Give Away" program. You can enter twice by leaving one comment on their webpage and another comment on their Facebook. The contest ends on Monday, June 13th at 11:59am.
Finally, we got an email from our friend M@ about a new program he was hoping to test at Great Woods, called Crowd Lights. Basically you can download the app for Droid or Iphone, and you become the light show. Theoretically, if everyone opens the app and faces their phones to the band, they get a light show from us. Sounds pretty cool. If you were in Mansfield, let us know if you saw the test and what you thought. Neat.
See you on lot!
