Yeesh, I'm from Va. and when we meet a southern baptist we immediately turn and run before they throw their bible at us, Catholics. I prefer stones to bibles but neither if I can help it.... Perhaps, we'll just have to venture out a bit further for a Catholic Church.
I have a question for everybody...What is your favorite type of venue to see a show? For the most part, here is mine: 1. Club 2. Theater 3. Amphitheater 4. Festival 5. Arena
I have never been to a city fest that utilizes clubs and theaters. That might be the winning combination.
I'd rank my favorite type of venues the same as you except I'd put fests ahead of amphitheater. Most of my favorite shows from this year are based on the intimacy of a small club crowd. I've really grown to enjoy theater shows over the past few years due to the comfort and good sound. I haven't been to an arena show in years before Yeezy and I might put that above amphitheaters also. Even when I was in the upper level the view, sound, and relaxation of having a seat was great. City fests that take place in the surrounding clubs and theaters have disadvantages in that you have to keep moving to different locations. That is not much different than an outdoor fest except what you're trying to go to next may have reached capacity or have a long line for entrance. An advantage to those type of fests, for me, is once again the intimacy. My favorite thing at SxSW was being in a place with only a hundred other people, if that. The band and crowd really connect. Just like with the aftershows at FFF. Seeing Thurston Moore playing two feet in front of you on a slightly elevated club stage is much different than looking up at him on a fest stage with a barricade separating the crowd.
I love them all really. It's hard to pick since there are certain clubs I'd choose over certain theaters and vice versa, plus fest settings I'd rather not see a show at and other fest sites that can make the show rememberable.

Hubs and I are fully ready to be dirty hippies for bonnaroo but for 1 hr. out of the weekend we need to act (we try really hard!) like responsible adults. So, I was wondering if theres a Catholic Church anywhere nearby? Possibly with an early mass so we can be back ASAP. Don't want to miss out on any of the festivities!! I tried to google it but I couldn't really get any info on proximity. Many thanks inforooers

I was going for big smiley face but now that I look at it, it does look eerily similar to a creepy mushroom banana stand. I swear I'm not a weird middle-aged man looking to share his man parts with the world! So, to make this less awkward than it already is, I'll just go with what laurensmackho said, it's the mushroom fountain!! Get your mushroom images straight!!
Shawn Thornton shouldn't be allowed to play professional hockey anymore. All events that lead to that incident don't come close to justifying coming up behind someone, hauling them down backwards, and smashing their head into the ice until they're unconscious. This isn't MMA, this is worse than the Todd Bertuzzi incident in my eyes ( yes, my bias is set aside on this one). This is an embarrassment to the game, and I hope Shanny gives him the rest of the season to reel in that temper.
