Great pics!!!!

So, I was there last night and am wondering if anyone felt like it was bit too much of a police state with the security. Off all the venues that I have been too in the last few years (Greek, Cuthbert, Edgefield, Seattle(2), Vegas, MCU, Bethel, Broomfield, Bethel, PDX Memorial) the SB Bowl is the worst from a security standpoint.

From getting frisked when you walk in to, to having to wear an arm band no matter what, to only being able to walk certain directions to the worst of all, the security acting like they are cops running the show and you better listen on they will kick you out. Man, I really dont get it.

I am not here spewing hate. That's not my thing. I just humbly ask the Furthur management to in the future choose a different location or just not come back at all. Yes, its beautiful. But the its just in the wrong place (way too nice a 'hood) and has the wrong attitude. Play a 3rd show at the Greek or ??????? but please no more SB Bowl.

Finally just want to say Hey to the great folks from Chicago we met (Tommy and his lovely new bride) and really nice folks to the right of us. See ya down the road.

I had a great time at the SB Bowl show last night. I've been to about 6 or 7 other shows there. But I do agree the security at the gates is a little ridiculous. They made me take my stuff out my front pockets. Luckily the dumb asses didn't check my back pocket. Once we got in I didn't find the security to be overbearing, I was in the GA pit area and it was pretty much security free.

It was clear that the floor was a bit more mellow, but still I saw the security being so uptight there as well. A few times some folks from the pit wanted to sit on the stairs leading up to the Founders Section and booted them right away including a few dudes with canes. C'mon, how about we be human beings with others first before worrying about the rules.

Sorry but I will have to respectfully disagree that this is the a good venue for Furthur. Better for Peter Paul and mary and some crowd that doesnt drink, smoke or take psychedelics and just sits in their seat for the whole show.

Personally, I feel like the following lines from the song Dark Hollow that we heard last night sums it up for me:

Well I'm going away, I'm leaving today
I'm goin', but I ain't comin' back.

San Diego was weird that way too. They made you check your backpack in which I have never heard of such a ridiculous thing in all my concert going days. Then of course after the show there's a line around the building to retrieve your backpack. Stupid.

Another favorite security thing of mine is when they dump out everything in your back pack and go through everything with a fine tooth comb but then don't even frisk your pockets. WTF is that? Are you providing security or not? I hate inconsistency like that it, it doesn't make sense and it shows me that they don't know what they are doing which is a dangerous thing.

the place is a nightmare with police outside and security inside.

great sound on the floor.

i thought the show was lackluster for a tour closer but coming off a four day run what do you expect. it certainly had moments but some were just awful cough king solomans cough.

yeah, security was a bit of a hassle. they were very strict, but not hostile. once the show started it was all good (at least that was my experience).

as for the show, there were some incredible jams and some excellent highlights. however, the flow of the 2nd set was very strange. it felt very "herky-jerky"... go, stop, faster, slower. i absolutely love "Viola", but at the end of "St. Stephen" i was sooooooo ready for "the Eleven". "Hey Pockey Way", "Eyes" and "St. Stephen" were amazingly good and then the bottom dropped out. "Viola" just seemd to get in the way and interrupt the flow. nevertheless, it was a very fun tour closer and i left with a big smile on my face. hanging with friends always makes for a great show, no matter what. thanks FFF for making my three shows a totally rockin' good time!!!

I have to respectfully disagree. I was in the GA pit area, and the pot smoke was so heavy you didn't even need to be smoking. The security was right there, but they weren't concerned with pot smoke. In fact more people were smoking around me in S.B. than the Greek. To me that is not the judge of a good or bad venue, but if that was your complaint about the bowl, maybe try the GA seats next time if they come to S.B. again. Also, when I turned around and looked up at the reserved area, I didn't see to many people sitting down.
