bleh i was going by the myspace message

Brute Squad 09-17-2007 02:03 PM

Having the show on the 2nd makes more sense - could they play Atlanta on 10/31 and Austin on 11/1? I doubt it. It's almost 1000 miles!

aldango 09-17-2007 03:04 PM

fuuuuuuuuckkking hellll

davin 09-17-2007 03:08 PM

this is awesome....11/2 is the day I fly into TX for the Dallas show. And yes, you guessed it, we'll be making the 3hr drive to Austin for this show as well!!!

Thank god I chose to get into DFW at 10am on 11/2, so it works out perfect!!! :bananamac

http://www.smashingpumpkins.com/news_2042 << says 11/2
http://www.myspace.com/smashingpumpkins << says 11/2
http://www.smashingpumpkins.com/tour << says 11/1 (probably a mistake).

This also means we now get to see EITS!!! :rock_on:

somaziro 09-17-2007 03:15 PM

wtf is EITS??? and the drive is more like 4.5 hours

JHeibel 09-17-2007 03:21 PM

Explosions In The Sky = opening band.

The drive from Dallas to Austin is 3 hours; if it takes you 4.5, you either drive extremely slow or make too many stops along the way.

/shrug i make the drive alot, at ~75 mph from north dallas (richardson) to south austin it takes around 4.5 hours taking highway 75 to IH35 the whole way.

Richardson is way north of Dallas lol. Austin downtown to Dallas downtown is 3 hours.

The drive to Grand Prairie should be even shorter...

somaziro 09-17-2007 10:58 PM

im from atx, so all the little subburbs count as 'dallas' to me!! =)

Oh yeah, I know what you mean. But with the big cities, it makes a big difference - for instance it's 2.25 hours to my parent's house in Houston - and 3.5 to some of my friends' houses in Houston (from my Austin apartment). Those cities are HUGE!

I live in Richardson too, and it takes me 3 hours to get to downtown Austin.

Ahh. I thought you were denying the existence of the show.

Heh. Which would be nice, actually. The consensus is that Buzzfest blows.

i really wish i could, but i can't miss work (which is stupid really if you think about it...what do i DO here beside posting on netphoria all day, lol). There's a rule here that you can't take days of from nov - march because those are our busiest months :( I was freaking out about the dallas show at first until i realized it was a saturday. Also, I don't like driving in big cities i'm not familiar with, which *******s both dallas and austin...i have a friend going with me who's driving, and i'm not sure he'd be able to take the extra day off either. Oh, and then there's the issue of being broke because i just spent an assload of $$ on a new macbook, midi controller, and recording software.... so yeah, looks like dallas is going to be the only show i see. Which, by the way, really bums me out. I remember the days of the infinite sadness tour where i was traveling around, following the band like a groupie, haha...those where some good times.

damn you must drive fast or use some alternate path.... for me it takes around 3 hours to from the round rock area (just north of atx) to the southern tip of dallas, but it takes like 30 minutes from round rock to south austin and probably around 45 minutes from richardson to just south of dallas depending on what time of day it is and how bad traffic is. maybe i just get stuck in traffic longer in atx and dallas. its around 210 miles, so traffic has got to be it!

well I already have a pit ticket for the dallas show, but i don't know anyone in dallas and would be going to the concert alone, which is ok per-say but going to a show without someone else to hang with before etc kinda sucks - so i am really on the fence about it.

skipgo 09-18-2007 01:23 PM

why don't you keep it and meet up with some netphoria kids? we'll keep you entertained in the hours before the show :)
