IN! I'm going attempt to convert some cousins who live nearby. They already like Bell's so getting them there is easy...

We are also in and will be bringing along a friend or two. A return to where I went to college. Should be a great setting for a Friday night show. The guy who started Bell's is one of my brother's college roommates, but I am pretty sure i won't be able to turn that connection into free beer.

Western Michigan alumn? My father graduated from there and a couple of cousins did as well, at least one of which will be with me at the show.

I'm excited for this show. Looks like a good group of regulars and some folks I haven't met yet. Plus I'm bringing my cousin and her husband who have no idea what they're getting into. :lol:

Looks like the weather will be perfect for a rawk show tonight. Me, the Ms. and a couple of college buddies will be there. I'll be getting to Bell's by later afternoon to start drinking beer -- see y'all there.

Hi, I've been following along on this forum for a long time, first post. This show is nearly in my home town, very excited to see them in such an intimate setting. I know there are at least 10 of us coming from the Benton Harbor Michigan area 45 minutes away. For those coming from out of town and enjoy craft beer (Bells of course is great) but also check out Tibb's and Arcadia. The beer Garden at Bell's is a sweet spot for show, going to awesome! Looks like the rain will hold off too.

What an absolutely incredible show. I feel like that was the best set they've played in a long, long time. So cool to see my favorite band play at my favorite brewery in my hometown and just kill it the way they did.

That was a great show. I was surprised to hear Days of Graduation. The rain couldn't keep a rock show down.

Maybe it was hearing Days of Graduation for the first time (I think), maybe it was hanging at the show with two college buddies that I don't see very often back in the town where we went to college, maybe it was the great outdoor setting with the light rain adding to the pleasure, maybe, okay probably, it was the Bell's Beer that started flowing for me around 5:00 and didn't stop, but I thought this was a fantastic show, probably in the top 5 of those I have seen.

What was the mood or atmosphere (especially coming from the stage) at this point in the show? Seems like an unusually sad/thoughtful/mellow/something like that end of show.

That's a really good point but by that time in the show the crowd had been reeled in hook, line and sinker. I guess I don't really see it all that much because we're on the rail so often but I was in front of the soundboard for this one and I was just watching the lights go on in so many faces. My cousin and her husband are included in that btw, they were blown away. What it Means got a huge round of applause.

You must have been right next to us. We were in front of the soundboard, as well. Great spot to take in the show.

Went for a bathroom break during What it Means, as it's not my favorite and it was the first moment where I finally felt it was acceptable to step away but I really enjoyed Imagine upon my return. Very pleased with their decision to go with Grand Canyon over Hell No this night. It was one of the best Grand Canyons I've seen and just worked well with the rain/atmosphere.

I don't have much to add about the show beyond what was said. I haven't been to as many shows as ya'll but this one has to be my top show. That run of Two Daughters all the way to Shut Up was ridiculous.

Praying for a bootleg or at least some decent footage to pop up but when you combine the fact of a small venue and the rain, I doubt much was recorded.
