1. 11-19-11 Alliant Energy Center in Madison Wis
Found some little bits of paper at the Madison show and had the best experience ever off that stuff there. The roof of the place looked like a giant seashell and I was swimming in the sea of humans. The lot was the right kind of party. Chill but still a rager. No fights or mass vomiting that I saw. Even the security guards were dancing in the ailsles at that one! Weather could have been a little better though. Bad driving after the show from ice and snow and crazy windy in the lot.
2. 3-3-10 Auditorium Theatre in Chicago
The Chicago show was really cool for a downtown one. I usually avoid those preferring the open spaces but this one had a hotel directly across the street that was totally taken over. Ornate cool looking venue too. The run in Chicago was also three of my friends 1st Furthur shows and we picked the right one on 3-3-10. Killer song choice and all played verry well. Thats the night I think I convinced them to join me on the bus.
3. 4-2-11 N Charleston Coliseum in N Charleston SC
Charleston was a cool one for the fact that it was the start of our (my friends and I) spring tour. Two of them had just gotten married and that was a kind of wedding present/honeymoon combo thing we all did. Started in Charleston and went till Boca (wich almost made this list. Hard choices) I had a balcony ticket and two of my friends had floor about 10 rows back. Managed to sneak down w/ them and join that party. I also kind of got turned on to some songs of theirs I never cared for that much at this show. Dire wolf was one I just didnt get till this and now I love it. Mountain song and Magnolia Mtn were another two from that one I love now. I guess driving through the Great Smoky Mtns had an affect on me!
I Just figured everybody has some favorites and now is a good a time as any to share some good times! If we didn't get those gems every now and then we actually would be as crazy as everybody thinks we actually are. I know some people prefer 80s or 90s or cowboy nights. And some people prefer indoor to outdoor shows or venues. Just kind of wondering what may pop up on this list.
are just songs of our own
