BF5 at Rumsey Playfield, NYC 9/14
« on: August 07, 2012, 08:10:30 AM »
Hello everyone! Long time no post.

I just found out my sister is able to fly in from Florida and come to the show.. unfortunately, I have early entry, and she does not. Is anyone selling, or does anyone have any suggestions on how I could find a ticket?

I'm currently hesitating to buy a normal admission ticket, since I wouldn't want to end up paying essentially triple if I eventually find early entry.

Any advice? And who is going? :D

I'll be there, by myself, with early entry, wearing my early entry shirt.

Great show. Got an actual setlist, and songs were moved around from what they played, and was shocked to see that they cut Best Imitation of Myself. Totally worth the $125 I spent if only for the improvising that went on during Song For The Dumped.

Terp2 thanks for the excellent review. Sounds like a great show! I excited for tomorrow nights show. I've got a similar background--saw the 5 a few times in the 90's, more solo shows that I can could and made the 2008 reunion gig. I'm about 3 hours from Chapel Hill. I'll give a report on Monday---I'm sure I'll be too beat by the time I get home tomorrow night. Mike
