12149RE: [ProgAndOther] Digest Number 1052
- Jun 1, 2001I have to agree -- I was somewhat disappointed to hear that there was an
"unofficial" pre-show happening at Crocodile.
Last years pre-show was rather special for me -- my flight left from Seattle
at 12:06 **AM** Friday morning -- arrived at LaGuardia at 1:30pm -- had
never been in NYC before so I just HAD to drive the legnth of Manhattan from
Central Park to 42nd Street (I think that's the corner that empire state
building was on) and then on into Allentown. My wife couldn't take the heat
and crowds and being exausted, went back to the hotel. Echolyn is one of my
all-time favorite bands, so I stood for HOURS in front of the stage and was
right in front when they (finally) performed.
I was hoping to avoid that fiasco this year, but I'm not sure I'll be able
to stay away from the pre-show, since there are NEVER any prog shows in
How about a late start to the preshow (like last year, as it turned out),
and an early start to the meet&greet at BBW? That way it would be feasable
to do both?
