You have plenty of time to think. I just bought mine. I don't know why they're playing the Backyard. It's too large of a venue.

The capacity is 3200. That's not too big is it?


edit: actually it's 3200 for seated, 4,500 for general admission. still i hear it's a pretty great venue right?

It is a phenomenal venue. I absolutely love it.

I would be surprised if they fit 4,500 people in there though! I always remember it to be a relatively small venue.

Especially because the Woodlands show is 17,000 and the Dallas show is like 6,000.

Dude I know. Blah. I wouldn't even be going if my friend could make the other shows, but whatev.

Oh, it looks like EITS won't be opening this show either, according to their website. But since this SP show was just announced, maybe they just haven't announced it yet.

i fly into DFW friday morning and the plan is to head to austin by 1:30pm. whether or not we get in line right at 4:30pm remains to be seen...i guess we'll see what the situation is, if anyone is meeting up for drinks beforehand, etc.

The Backyard isn't really suited to tailgating anymore. It used to be a venue in the woods, but now it's surrounded by shopping centers and assorted crap.

I've been wondering the same thing, haven't heard anything from anyone and haven't seen anything posted about openers for either shows. So... hurry up and wait. :]

can't wait for these texas shows. epscially with the setlists still changing.

so am i correct in my thinking that the backyard is a large GA area vs. the Dallas show which is just a small GA pit up front?

kewl. so sounds like it makes sense to show up earlier for Austin, since Dallas is pretty small to begin with and inherently will be a good spot (like the Indiana show I went to...or the seated pit @ Normal).

so Andrew -- are you going to both? i plan on wearing my big lebowski shirt for 1 of the days, in honor of you. hopefully the laundry gods will allow it.
