    Re: Atlanta shows. Maybe this is weird and probably way off base. But I've always kind of wondered if they skipped ATL because it isn't "progressive" enough. Greenville and Nashville are, but always wondered if Atlanta came off as too "red." Just a stupid conspiracy theory, I know.
    I've heard this before, but I have a hard time believing it. Atlanta is no different than most blue islands in red states and, considering the results of 2020 and 2022, they still seem to be avoiding the city. 
    Wouldn't Indy be skipped then too?

    46 year Gwinnett resident. Gwinnett is getting super purple. It is not red like it used to be. Probably has more to do with festivals like Midtown and Bonnaroo giving a bigger payout and forcing no play in nearby cities?

    Chicago was tough like that..........hard to get good smaller to mid size bands in summer because of Lollapalooza restrictions.

    Hey. I'm going to see Ringo Deathstarr tonight at the Masquerade. I have a free extra ticket if someone would like to go. Just PM me. I would love for it to go to a fellow 10 clubber.

    I just hope they don't play Lakewood when they return.  I'd still definitely go but it's my least favorite venue in our area.  Horrible traffic getting in and out and the area around it is awful. 
    Isn’t there a prison across the street too?

    Hmm, not sure about that. Could be. I was there last fall, but you can enter from two directions. Traffic in and out can be brutal. Radiohead for the In Rainbows tour was a mess!

    Ringo Deathstarr sounds fun. Hope someone takes you up on it.

    Hopefully, we see Pearl Jam on this marquee next year.

    Nice big US Penitentiary. Looks like it’s straight out of a movie. 

    I always wonder if they can hear the shows lol

    The Fox! That would be amazing, and a tough ticket to get! Lower level tickets in the back are so far from the stage though. Front rows of the balcony pretty good though!

    Last concert I saw there was Soundgarden, one of their last shows.

    Was at that Soundgarden show as well. Great show. Hard to believe we lost Chris shortly after.

    Okay, Pearl Jam! New Atlanta memory!

    2003, Lakewood Amphitheater: This is post Bu$hleaguer troubles in upstate New York.

    Ed notices during Porch that some interesting characters are in the crowd. So he invites up his friends George W., George W., George W., and his other friend George W. to see if he can get some support from the president. 4 dudes in George W masks all come on stage to hold up Ed while he lays on his back to sing out the last chorus of Porch! Pretty awesome! And no boos regarding the W masks and witty comments from Ed!

    Also, Ed makes an awesome plea for more funding for teachers. LOVE IT!

    Come on boys, come back in 2024!

    Same show where Mike flubbed the opening lick in "Alive" and had to start over. Right? I also remember the weather and pre-game tailgate scene were incredible. So much so that the rest of my crew found me sleeping on the hood of the car after the show. Not my finest moment.

    yeah, that's what I was thinking! I believe it's the same prison Al Capone was at before being moved to Alcatraz.

    What are the best places here for:

    -Sub sandwich: Sub of Subs in Duluth. Tiny place. Great wings and sandwiches. My favorite is the bulgogi cheesesteak.

    Burgers: Vortex is great, only 21 and up if you have kids though.  Other options are Farm Burger, Local 7 in Tucker, Ted’s Montana Ranch is actually not bad (get the bison burger). Go to the Collegiate in Gainesville. Old school 50s style burger joint. It’s about that old too.

    Steak: hmm, not sure I’m the best to ask. Stony River on Medlock Bridge used to be great, Morton’s or Ruth Chris is always an option, otherwise Chops or Bones in Buckhead used to be good, just haven’t been in a long time. Also, Fogo de Chao (Brazilian style steakhouse, all you can eat, killer salad bar, not cheap!).

    Pizza: Antico is a solid choice. Also, hit Gio’s Chicken right next door. You can bring the pizza over as well.
    O4W in Duluth has killer Detroit style pizzas as well as a thin crust Grandma pie. Really good!
    Family favorite is Shorty’s in Tucker. Wood fired pizzas, crazy combinations named for musicians. We absolutely love it.

    Bbq: Fox Bros is legit good.
    Das has great brisket.
    for ribs, I love Fat Matt’s, plus you get a free blues concert on weekends.
    Community BBQ in Decatur is good, great hot links, ribs, and Mac n cheese.
    Also, Old Brick Pit BBq is old fashioned but really good.
    Went to Local 7 in Tucker over the weekend.  Great food, thanks for the recommendation.  Also while I was there, they played Crazy Mary and some Temple of the Dog.
    I am lost, I'm no guide, but I'm by your side
