Anyone willing to team up at Ohana Encore?

OK, I'm not sure how this works, so please be as kind as I know you all are. I'm a long time fan who just got the opportunity to start checking out live shows recently (first show with Ed was 2019 Innings and first with the band was this weekend at Ohana!) I do not have anyone to go to shows with. The hubs is not a huge fan of live shows in general, and my 8 year old, while fierce as fuck, is not quite ready for GA :) Because I'm a lone attendee, I have a lot of trouble getting up close and keeping the spot without either rupturing my bladder or dehydrating completely. Is there anyone who will be at the encore this weekend that is willing to adopt an orphan to help protect (and share) a home base close to the stage? Thanks in advance  :)

    Welcome to PM me here on Friday. Not sure what time I'm headed in yet, but if the timing works your welcome to join us. Alternatively, whenever you get there, make friends with those around you (doesn't hurt to buy a round of beer) and the rest will take care of itself  ;)
  • I’m also going solo and am always happy to team up with other fans to get a spot close to the stage! I think I have a group of a few other people who might also be in for this. We can take turns doing food, bathroom, etc. runs throughout the day.

    Just write "28" in marker on your arm. 
    Whenever you want to get up front or back up front, just explain that you were in the official line (right behind the goat) and should be let up front. 

    :lol:    




    Just kidding -- I think this is a good thing to try and set up in advance. 
    Glad you are getting to see the band & hope you have fun!
    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    If you manage to get in early enough to set up near the front, just speak with the people next to you.  I was solo all last weekend for Ohana Fest, and on Sunday was not missing catching PJ upfront.  You just make conversation with those around you and everyone will take care of you.   The only thing that I would caution is that once you get much passed say Beck on Friday and Brandi Carlile on Saturday returning to your spot is easier said than done.  basically from gates until the act before PJ you have more freedom.
    His eminence has yet to show.

    Well said and my wife and I are happy to try and connect with any other fellow PJ 10 clubbers willing to help out or just hang with like minded cool people.
