No, no need to take off shoes, sry if I confused you. My point is it was an ordinary search, not too bad.

Stricken, was there really a deer? Could the laughing part be in your head????




The deer was real and it was last year now the laugh could have been heat related or not.

I got there late as it was hot as all get up. We parked back away from Shakedown and we walked right in after the back ups and didn't miss anything except the shade of the pavilion. I heard that the cops were harassing the vendors pretty good though and there was a huge ruckus on this board somewhere. I sat in those AWFUL terrace seats with the sun melting me and it was rough. Oh the humanity... It was a great show and in 120 degree heat, Phil had a long sleeve button down on with an undershirt. He didn't sweat a bead either and just KILLED it like always. Cant wait to go back and sit under the shed! Hopefully it will be cooler this year

I can't speak to last year because I wasn't there. I think the oppressive heat may an uncomfortable situation worse.

There were two shows in 2010, I saw the first. Per usual, everyone said the second was better, but that's hard to believe.

What you need to remember is there are two parking lots and entrances. The lower is Shakedown and you are kind of funneled down there. Up top is mellower and much easier to negotiate.

But beware this is a Saturday show in Philly, so expect a party and the obligatory OMSN.

I read all the drama here on the board but didn't see any myself. I didn't have a problem getting in because I go for the show so I'm in line well in advance. It did seem like a lot of dodgy shite was taking place on Shakedown with security making people pack up their tables.

Ah, we saw the deer, too. Got there, parked the car, and got out to walk around minutes before we saw the thing leaping around down at the other end of our row of cars. By the time we got there Shakedown was in the process of getting shut down.

It was our second time at the Mann and we always go in early to avoid security lines and stake our claim to a piece of lawn at the front. So we didn't miss a thing... I was wearing a dress and flip flops so I didn't even get a pat down. I don't think my boyfriend did either... worst security I've ever experienced was at the Tower Theater in Philly. If you wait until last minute you're gonna run into lines.
