The Vibes deal was $20 + $9, so it was better by 35 cents, but I declined to pay the custy fee.

I'm on the fence. :undecided:
I might just go to Viral Sound at Sully's Pub in Hartford on Saturday. I've mostly seen DSO in a festival type setting and its never been an entire show like their shtick is, more like a greatest hits free-for-all. So I thought when I saw them at a theater I'd get the real DSO experience but no.....same deal.

:funny1:

CP really wanted to go, and we had a good time hanging out with friends. They played 9/29/77 Seattle Paramount Theatre. Best. Sugaree. Evah.

Considering I had comps for Kimock the night before, it was a good two days of music.

Spunion hooking. Gregoir is the master. The best part was the kid letting go of two balloons while he dove, then coming back up and asking if the show had started.

I'm all for publicly shaming Live Nation and the Wallingford police until they do something. If Ken can keep the nitrous mafia out of a festival, Live Nation can keep them out of one parking lot.

Agreed. After Ken & Vibes were publically shamed after Vibes 2009, something was done. Ken realized that it had gotten out of control, and took steps to protect his investment. The Oakdale should do the same.
The issue is money. the gas slingers make a ton of it. That will keep bringing them back. Now if they start to lose money, they will go away...

And someone died at Vibes. They can twist and turn the story any way they want. but the fact that when you still search vibes on google. nitrous mafia kills man at vibes comes up is a lot more reason for the crack down then any public outcry. people were complaining about it quite vocally since vibes 2007.

The death, although I'm 99% sure had nothing to do with NOZ, certainly was a huge factor. No doubt. Ken knew that it was out of control. and he didnt need any more bad press.

The Klein isn't a Live Nation venue, and the tank operators have been staying away from FTC's Bridgeport and Fairfield shows as far as I know. Jones Beach is on state property with park police, and the NYC venues front on city sidewalks, where it's the NYPD's problem.

I'm not saying to boycott LN, although I probably will.

I don't support the tank guys anymore, used to give them quite a few of my dollars, but I am not going to boycott a venue because there are tanks there. I'd never get to see the biscuits :lol:
