Sweet Home Chicago
 
Who is headed back to the Atheneum this Friday?

mandarific 11-10-2014 05:19 PM

That would be me! Would be nice if it didn't rain this time, but I won't be getting my hopes up. Would have liked to switch to a different seat if someone abandoned their tickets/got a refund/etc, but the theatre never got back to me. Our seats weren't bad last time, though!

Also just got tickets for Glen in Milwaukee on Valentine's Day, FWIW.

Shillelagh 11-10-2014 05:48 PM

borneoman 11-10-2014 06:09 PM

Wooohooo!!! I'm a bit bummed we weren't able to get closer seats (someone was buying for me and did it online not over the phone) but on the other hand...this will be our fourth time seeing Glen and the last time I was literally touching the stage and about got whacked by Rob's guitar...so I think we'll be okay in the mezzanine ;)

XRT. Doesn't sound like it. We've emailed them a bunch. And Damien's help email. No response. They had said that day that if he reschedules they would call us to come back but they were massive jerks too so I kinda doubt they give a crap. JAM has been dogshďt throughly this whole thing. If it hadn't been for Damien specifically saying to move it back to the Athenaeum a lot of people would've been really screwed.

I think I got row J on the right. I've seen Glen loads and been up there too. It's great but there's really not a bad spot in the house. I'm just glad I got an aisle.

I'll be there on Friday to see Damien!

melodie 11-11-2014 02:00 PM

bluebeagle 11-12-2014 01:07 PM

I'll be there! So excited, Friday couldn't come fast enough!

mandarific 11-14-2014 05:18 PM

Did anyone try parking near the venue last time? We're planning on doing that tonight (last time we parked outside the city and took the L in) so I was curious if anyone had any experience with the parking situation. :)

verenita 11-14-2014 05:30 PM

enjoy. it'll be special!

conanemily 11-14-2014 05:46 PM

I think it will be special too! :) look forward to your reviews.

Shillelagh 11-14-2014 07:31 PM

I parked next to the Diag. Bar just south of the venue. I was fine.

DesoleInBoston 11-14-2014 09:36 PM

Have fun tonight guys! Ask for Camarillas!!!!

signalfire 11-14-2014 09:37 PM

Have an amazing time with round two, everyone!

Shillelagh 11-14-2014 10:02 PM

Just picked up the tickets. Damo was doing sound check I got to hear takes a lot to know a man, the box, toffee pop, elephant and volcano.

eva_arg 11-14-2014 10:31 PM

ooh how great if he plays It Takes a lot...

bluebeagle 11-14-2014 10:35 PM

I took the train last time as well, but I'm driving today. I'll be heading there soon so I hope to find parking too. So excited! The day is finally here!

mandarific 11-14-2014 10:41 PM

We're on our way in! Went through Milwaukee instead of Rockford / Schaumburg this time, but looks like we'll be okay to make it on time. Google seems to think we're about to hit a lot of traffic but we're at least already in Illinois, sooooo.

I'll be in all purple again with glasses and a half my hair shaved with a thor-esque dude if anyone sees us and wants to say hi! :)

(Also I'm kind of jealous I missed the sound check!)

soChildish 11-14-2014 11:23 PM

On my way too, would absolutely love to hear Toffee Pop!!

InspirationDestination 11-14-2014 11:29 PM

Would be great if you get Toffee Pop and It Takes A Lot! I hope he plays all the new ones! Have a great time!

RenataAQP 11-14-2014 11:54 PM

have a great time guys!! look forward to hearing how it was!!

amyyhc 11-15-2014 12:02 AM

soChildish 11-15-2014 12:32 AM

;( no piano tonight

Excited though!!

mandarific 11-15-2014 12:33 AM

In our seats up in section 8! Don't see a piano tonight, which is kind of a bummer, but I bet the show will be awesome regardless. Very different / less gloomy lighting tonight too ;)

Dunno how much I'll post, but my instagram is also mandarific for pics!

LOL great minds post at the same time? ;)

Anyone else just catch that the first song on the "radio" before the show was "Feelin' Good?" the box office guy even told us he was feeling good too, ha :)
