I'm fairly sure you are in the minority wlewis. Many here cannot just take off for large stretches of time, over and over and maintain regular employment. Or if they have the free time, having the means to tour is often difficult.
You seem to be riding the perfect storm! For many of us, taking several days off to travel to a show can be problematic, a long string of shows out of town (in an expensive city) an impossibility). That's why I too feel blessed to live close to NYC, where the boys admittedly do some of their finest work.
Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart
You just gotta poke around.....
