Listen to Episode 65 [audio http://thisweekonlot.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/twol65.mp3]
This week TWoL is coming at you with a jam packed, 40 minute episode full of news, reviews and opinions skewed.
We start off with a review of Furthur at the Best Buy Theater from 3/13/11. I was in attendance for this show, and left pleasantly surprised. Moving to this more intimate venue from the monsterous MSG was definitely a good call. With emotions running high after the passing of Stanley "Bear" Owsley earlier in the day, the band definitely brought their "A" game. And adding Warren Haynes to almost all of the second set was welcomed by fans in the house that night.
Next we hit the standard Phish "Ticket Check"and discuss our views on the recent on-sale activities. With only 2 shows sold out, it looks like everyone who wants to get in this summer should be able to, and this is a good thing. Quite the 180 from last summer, but we feel a variety of factors contributed to this, which of course we discuss in detail.
Then we hit your Lot Reports, and there are some good ones this week. We always appreciate you guys calling, so keep hitting us up. 419-NO-WOOKS / 419-669-6657.
We did another venue review this week, tackling PNC Bank Arts Center, the 2 Steve's home turf. Next week we will keep it moving with DTE Energy Music Theater.
Lastly, we run through some news of the week. GOTV added some artists we like to the lineup. At least 1 of us will be there, and hopefully we can provide a live show for you guys. All Good has also released another round of artists. Finally, Mayan Holidaze goes on sale this week, and this guy just might finally pull the trigger.
Thanks for tuning in, we will catch you guys next Tuesday.
