I did two Furthur shows at the Cap in Apr and I loved the venue. The cops were cool with Shakedown including drinking beers from cups. Its a 6 hour drive from DC, I stayed at the Marriot which was pricy but with a Govt disc it was priced OK. Its a 20 min walk to the venue although the area late at night on weekends is a little questionable.
I have stayed both in Hawthorne, about 15 minutes away by car, and in Stamford, about 15 minutes by train (The train station is literally next to the theater). Each of these was nice and in the $90-$110 average per night (before taxes) range. Much less expensive than dealing with the city. Although Portchester is a little rundown, I have not found it to be questionable at all safety wise. In fact, I have found people to be very friendly and have not had any negative experiences at all, after almost twenty concerts in the last year.
