Got mine...orchestra row P, seats 2, 4, 6.
I'm not complaining, but how did you guys manage such close seats? I called at exactly 10, was on hold for less than 5 minutes, and row p was all I could get. Actually, they did offer me row j, but we wanted aisle seats. Just wondering how you get row A.

Because it's on a Sunday and I'll have the time, I'll probably walk about 15 blocks in order to get a Cheesesteak from Steaks on South, located between 3rd and 4th on South Street.

In the past, some venues reserve the best seats for people that buy only 2 at a time.  I think it's an old trick to prevent scalpers from getting the best seats.

I might have seen that place on the Travel channel. Do they have an arch rival cheese steak place across the street?

This might explain how I got Row A in the Pit.... not that I'm complaining of course.  :biggrin:

What back alley do you think would be the most appropriate location for me to be violated in?  I want to make sure I look up the directions well ahead of time.

That's one part I don't really like to plan ahead of time, kind of takes away from the thrill of the chase.

Any chance I could get in on this one guys?

I may try and go to this one.  It's the closest one to me and it looks like Trivium will not be playing that night.  A bonus.
When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep just like my grandfather, and not like the screaming passengers in his car!

They've been on sale for a while now man. The only place you can get them is through the Merriam Theater's official website. You have to register an account there.

From the little I have heard of Periphery, they remind me of Breaking Benjamin. Is that about right?

I remember Nick and some others made one for the last show (July 2009, Tower Theater) but I couldn't attend.

Trying to get into periphery... what the hell is going on with the vocals? The singer is horrible! Listening to the cover of one by Metallica.. My god. And that might be the worst guitar solo i've ever heard. Damn I really wanted to like these guys because they seem to be popular around here.

If you don't like the singer, try the instrumental version of the album.

I remember I liked it a lot better than the actual one however I've been really getting into the singer lately. I took a while but I like him a lot now.
