I remember him saying that with the larger number of venues that things getting to capacity was much less of an issue. With the easy entry being one of the main VIP perks, the cost wasn't worth it to him.
Done VIP the past three years. While it was worth it the first two, it was pretty much a waste last year. Since the addition of more venues (and being able to place bigger bands in some of the newer, larger venues, as opposed to smaller clubs), there are no lines anymore.
I'll be doing General Admission this year.
Don't know if anyone caught it, but Chatham County Line were listed as playing on Pollstar a month or two ago (they've been taken down now)
I think they should do away with Memorial Auditorium this year. While the shows I saw there last year were all great, it just didn't feel right with a couple hundred people up front and an empty auditorium behind them.

I loved Memorial. It was pretty incredible seeing Sunn O))) in a huge auditorium with great acoustics, and I loved how the fog machines made a giant column in the middle of the stage. It just felt epic. The room worked well for Chris Corsano and Kevin Drumm, too. Drumm's set felt eerier in a dark, massive room.
