Jacksonville 2016

This show was almost 5 years ago and that doesn’t feel real, but here we are. Jacksonville is the subject of today’s episode as we get to run down the set and talk about a show with a bunch of rare cuts sprinkled in like Army Reserve, Rival, Ghost, Glorified G which was probably used as a practice run for the Greenville set and Of The Earth which could be the best performance out of this show. Listen to the episode, the stories our guest gets to tell and let us know what moment you enjoyed from this:

    Let's not forget the "Greek Ghost"...I was at the show, I thought it was great.  Nice shout out to Dmitri during the song.  I was somewhat surprised at the audience being a bit tame and lacking energy outside of the pit in my opinion.  The other memory was a unique setlist as you mentioned above and also some empty seats.  Being that I'm from CT - the Northeast shows tend to be high energy and are always sold out - I don't believe this show was.  Regardless, I had a great time and I actually think this poster is pretty unique and looks great in person - I don't think it got as much love as some of the other prints from 2016 at the time.

  • Totally agree on the show and poster!

    I was in the pit right in front of Ed. Loved the energy in the pit and is actually one of my favorite show experiences. The Evolution into Betterman was fantastic.

    Could not believe my luck in getting Rival and Of the Earth.

    Fun show, my 9th and I took a first timer. Living in Alabama, we don’t get a lot of shows in somewhat driving distance (6 hours) so this was an easy go. I scored GA and we drove over the day of the show. We ate and casually made our way over to the arena. I had seen the poster ahead of time and figured that I could get the poster from 10C so didn’t fool with the lines. We went in about 20-30 minutes before the show started and got really close on Stone’s side. As we were walking up, I found an EV Batmobile pick just sitting right there on the arena floor-pretty cool! Highlights for me were Rival, I Wont Back Down (tribute to Tom Petty who was born in Gainesville, FL), Ghost (I had read the message boards and knew the Greek was chasing this one. He was right behind me and jumping around like a maniac-rightfully so!!!). I had head Of the Earth at Deluna in Pensacola in 2012 but it was still good to hear. Army Reserve was a shout out to a high-ranking official in the forces, John McDonough who was present at the show and spotlighted. Oddly enough when I took my wife to New Orleans and Jazzfest in 2010, they had John McDonough and some of his troop livestreamed from the middle east. I didn’t convert my friend to a PJ lifer but that was not my intent…..any PJ show is a great show. I ended up going to New Orleans and both Wrigley shows in 2016, all four have their own special moments.

    I suspect that's why the southern USA doesn't get much love. They moved a lot of people from the seats at those shows to the pit. The pit didn't sell as well as had hoped.

    The other crazy memory about that...people put in NYC/Philly shows as their first 2-3 picks and southern shows as later picks.

    They all bitched when they went 1/8 and others went 5/7 or 5/9. Of course, people who got 4-5 shows put various Florida shows as picks 1-4.

  •  I spend a lot of time at nearby Amelia Island (near to Jacksonville), so this was like a second home show!

    So much fun.

    I don't remember too many open seats, but for a Wednesday night show, I thought the crowd was pretty good. I had a blast.
