I couldn't figure out how to get tickets for this. Could I possibly go to see Melon 3 days in a ROW?!?! Oh my!
I am in! Here's the problem though..it's a really long drive after the Metro show. According to Mapquest it's 11-12 hrs. Mere and Tara, if you are in car with me and willing to split the drive so we can get some sleep, I say let's do it! Also, I don't know what time they are supposed to go on. I think it starts at 11AM so they probably won't be until evening so we should have enough time..god willing!
I also have to figure our finances because I think the VIP tix are like $60. Blind Melon is a very expensive habit!!!

Hmmm yeah it is expensive. I'm not sure about it- we'll have to discuss further. I'd love it but it's something that would have to really be considered...because I still need to be able to get home obviously...

Reverbnation sent me an ad, and probably all other musicians on there an opportunity to open up for this fest..... I thought it was cool, when I opened up an email that said, "open up for Blind Melon" great press for the guys! Here's the info

jaakko: Hi there! I´m new here! Straight to the question... Is there any possibilities that Blin Melon would tour somewhere in europe someday? I need to see and hear my all time favourite band live before I die. Do I need to fly to U.S.A?

crobar: Anyone know who played the harmonica lead in the song "change" at woodstock '94?

crobar: If you watch the video on youtube for "Change" at woodstock '94, a dude is welcomed out on stage to play the lead harp. Shannon thanks him but you can't hear the name. The guy killed it and I'd like to know who he is/was. Any help is appreciated.

lisa: Blind melon take me back to a really happy time of leaving school and having the world at my feet. I am about to watch the doc. I am looking forward to seeing what the band thought of history being made and the creation of timeless music. RIP Shannon
