Chicago bound fans traveling clown style and others....

I've contacted the Four Farthings Tavern and now I need a head count for the pre-show gathering. You can either post here or send me a PM to let me know if you'll be there. It is about 2 blocks from the venue and they serve excellent spirits and food as well.
(FYI: http://www.fourfarthings.com/)

I was thinkng since the Chicago show is sold out that we should have this meet and greet earlier, say around 3:30 pm? And whoever wants to get in line early can do so. I know if I want to spot the rivet, I'm getting in line early!;)

Cheers,
~A~

I was gonna say that but Haggii sounds like something out of Star Wars. Revenge of the Haggii.

oh my all of this talk about G's rivets is getting me fired up ;)......

once again we'll try for a preshow....we'll come in directly there....the Mr. has to work here very early in the morning, but he's psyched about going to this show, we shouldn't be too late coming in hopefully

We have a four hour drive to get there....how long will everyone be there? I'll prob. be the lilest female adult in the room, easy to spot.

I'm going to the show with the hubby...but I don't know if I'll be at the preshow party, since we'll be driving and might stop by a friend's house before the concert.

Jumped on the ticket bandwagon when I saw the tread that Tickemaster had tickets for the show. :D

~Kristy...I look forward to seeing everyone! :D

I will not be able to make any pre-show gatherings but I will probably recognize some of the faces at the show.

Hey is there a place that has a comprehensive tour date list? The Jayhawks page only lists five or six upcoming shows, and I want to see farther ahead than that....

Thanx,

AC

Is it Saturday yet? :D

Man, I have rarely been this excited for a gig. Couple that with the Cubs spring training game being on ESPN today and, WOO HOO, I am about ready for take off.

I just got the tickets from Ticketmaster for the show in the mail...woohoo!!! They are floor tickets, so I hope there is not a bad seat in the house.

Thanks for all of your responses. We are set for about 16-17 give or take a fanpager or two.

The password is 'Jayhawks' how original am I?? That or you can use 'Angela.' I put our reservation under both.

Cheers and see ya soon.

Our pre-show plans are still up in the air, but we'll try to at least stop in for a drink and say hi to everyone. Not worried about being "first in line" -- i'll leave that to the "hard-cores" like CZ, Ed, Sandy, Joyce, etc. ;)

On the road in less than 9 hours...

updates....I called the Park West again yesterday but the decision on an opener is still up in the air. The woman that I spoke to said she just didn't know and that they may not have one at all, sometimes these things are last minute and it is usually someone local in that case. So we won't know until tomorrow. I'm hoping it's just Mark and Gary.

So are we excited or what kiddies?? I have made the reservation for the Four Farthings at 3:30 PM, a few of you thought that was rather early but when partying with this crew time flies...so I'll leave it as it stands and hope that everyone joins us eventually.

A few more things, unfortunately Sean cannot make it up :( (I think there's a Nascar race he hasn't told me about....heheh). So I will have an extra! PM me if you're interested.


Chiefcrowe, I think we can toss back a few for ya!

Emmy, a leash? You're starting to scare me girl!

And lastly Pedal does give the best hugs!! :)

OK, off to practice my Scottish accent..rrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

For those coming in from Iowa ,SE Minnesota , rural Wisconsin and Indiana, I hear the Illinois police are setting up "hillbilly roadblocks". Just a heads up.

Safe journeys to all!

Yes, we will toss back a few for all who cannot be there, Cale we'll drink a toast to you for sure! :)

PW, are you going to make it to the preshow?

Calexico
03-11-2005, 10:01 AM
Thanks Ang....someone should be falling down drunk early and making a general nuisance of themselves...seeing as how I can't be there to do it!:rolleyes:

"PW, are you going to make it to the preshow? "

probably not. With Lilady K and Musky there i don't think it would be a good idea since both of them have threatened me in the past.

sounds like fun though.

hey what is up with this opening act stuff?

That is typically my job, but if Haggy wants to assume duties, go for it.

Have fun and safe travels to those from afar!

Angelyne
03-11-2005, 10:31 AM
Perhaps we can have a few stand-ins for Cale should someone decide to sober up, the stand-in can fall down? ;)

That's too bad about the preshow, PW.

If I find out anything further about an opening act, I'll post it.

Pedal that was an awesome post. I agree with you on 'the moment' for sure.

Calexico
03-11-2005, 10:35 AM
Great post Pedal.....dammit all...love to be there.Actually I would probably be more het-up over meeting everyone here rather than the gig itself!!

Have a blast guys...

I will just look for the group of 16-17 people who are
REALLY drunk and hugging each other at the show :D

Ang, thank you so much for setting up this pre-party.

Since this is the last show of the tour and we don't know what is in the future let me just say the past nine months meetin'and greetin' with many of you folks has been a highlight for me. And isn't that really what IT is all about. Great music, great connections and great friends.

And what is most humbling is that I know there are people who feel just as passionately about musical “moments” as I do. And somehow that makes me feel like there is a higher purpose to all of this. Call it revelation, restoration or group therapy. Reminders that there are beautiful things, incredible moments and a chance to witness a part of the past, truly live in the present and be excited about the future. A chance to say, “I was there. And you were with me.”

Love to you All! See you in Chicago…

Been crowded in the wings
Mostly I don't mind
Been crowded in the wings
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find

This post reminded me a bit of Mel in Braveheart. Well done, PB

FREEDOM!! :p

Unless you mean 3:30 TODAY....now that's a decent session!:D

Tell Justin to lay off the McGriddles. His cholesterol doesn't need 'em.


I'm just saying this because I care.

Four or Five hours of Dinking Time? I am not even sure what that means, but it sure sounds like the Cialis moment where you should contact a doctor!

Don't forget, when you get too drunk you don't enjoy or remember a show as much.
