Nine TMBG Shows In Six Days

 I strive to see TMBG a minimum of ten times each year. However, here we are in September and I have only attended one show so far in 2010.

In a span of five weeks I will be making up for that with nine shows, including three double-headers, four rock shows and five family shows, all apparently without an opening act. With the exception of the first two, all of these shows are in seated theaters with assigned seating. Unfortunately, I only managed to get front row seats for the final two shows in Fairfield, CT.

First up is a three day trip to Lupo's in Providence, RI followed by the fifth annual audience appreciation free show at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT (fake ticket created for completion's sake) and a couple of family shows at Town Hall in New York City. So, it looks like next week's entry will be from the road. I'm excited to hear new songs!

 I'm also seeing The Pee Wee Herman Show on Broadway on Halloween (dream come true), and in November I've got Corn Mo in Asbury Park, Roger Waters and Tim & Eric in Philadelphia and Tim & Eric again in New York City. It's going to be a busy couple of months!

  1. how many shows have you been to total?

  2. I will see you at every single one of those. But then, you knew that. It is going to be a good fall. And I too am looking forward to new songs!

    What time are you planning on getting to Lupo's?

  3. As it says at the bottom of the list in the right column, it will be 178 including these nine. There's also a link to the list.

    We should be hopefully be arriving at Lupo's by 3:30.

  4. Oh bother. I don't even get out of work until 3:30. I knew that was going to be a problem. We'll be there about 5:30. Don't let anyone extremely tall get in line in front of me. :-)
