Listen to Episode 52 [audio http://thisweekonlot.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/episode-52.mp3]
Due to our holiday schedules this episode comes to you a day early and a host short. Yes it's true we're sans Emilie, but not to fear, long time TWoL correspondent Toonces fills the void. Emilie will be back next week once she gets back from her h3tty cruise.
First on the agenda this week is the review of the Trey show in Princeton. Steve and long time TWoL personality Noob Laura attended the show. Overall it was a really good show and someone how Steve managed to be seated next to one of the only wooks at the show. Even though the venue was really small there was definitely some open seats, you'll have to listen to hear more details.
Steve also checked out Furthur in MSG on Saturday night. (Big ups to Jed Leckless for the tix.) Surprise surprise, Furthur shows have a level 10 crusty wook factor. I guess when you've been riding the tour train that long it's hard to get off and take a shower. Overall the show was good, started strong but finished slow. To each their own.
Next up Toonces puts on a clinic of what types of beer are good for what types of lots. He also gives some advice on what to bring and how to sell if you're going to try and make your gas money slanging beers on lot. There might be some fundamental changes in lot economics, this could be the death of 1 for $3 and 2 for $5 when it comes to beer. If you want the best sometimes you have to pay for it.
After that we run through a ticket check for the Phish holiday run. Looks like prices are holding steady or are rising. We also run through travel plans to and from the city for NYE. If you're staying in Jersey we recommend using the PATH train unless you want to hang in NYC till 4:30 am. Take a listen to find out all of our travel tips.
Lastly we run through our voicemails for the week. Thank you to everyone who left a message! Remember we can't be everywhere all the time so make sure to hit us up with your lot reports.
Thank you again everyone, we'll see you next week on lot!
