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.

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 dogshït 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.

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.

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!

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!)

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

The Box
Bottom Shelf
Rootless Tree
