you know I\'m partial to RI just because the Century is like 10 minutes from my house and it is kind of central New England. one of the bad things is there aren\'t many places for people to get to and crash for the night. there are plenty of hotels and want not and i guess some headie people live in the Boston area which is 45 minutes from Providence so maybe I\'m wrong. but the Century is a great intimate venue, it would just be a matter of how far will people travel on New Years. I\'d like to say Toad\'s but i wouldn\'t mind seeing them in a PACKED house even it is a couple hundred people. from what i have noticed over the past couple years less and less people are going out on the town for New Years.

where\'s the option for:

Just Not the Webster!!!!!!

;p


nyc would be decent, as a post-show show kinda deal. atlanta would be another good idea. ct is home turf, so that should be considered for sure. any farther north than ct (like boston, for instance) will make it tough for non-NE\'ers to make it, but how many of them will be coming to the show? right now i\'m conisdering Ancient Harmony in tallahassee, but since that\'s at least 14 hours away, i\'m hoping the breakfast is playing a lot closer than that!

North Hampton would be cool, but it is a pretty lame-o city.

Not a lame-o city at all!!! I love Northampton, it\'s the fucking Iron dick management of the Iron Horse that  I hate.


Northampton/Amherst also have some of the best dining options, given their small sizes.  It\'s hard to find a couple blocks with that much good food even in S.F.

Not sure if I would endorse an NYE up there, with all the students gone for winter break.

i remember being under 21 and all the shows were 21+. Now that I am over 21 I have noticed more and more shows targeting 18+. kind of pisses me off so I show no love for those who are under 21+.


Well that\'s kind of a dick move.

I think the food was already discussed. :P But yeah... I have always loved Northampton.

Also, Steve. You don\'t know what you\'re talking about with Boston. How can anyone from CT diss Boston? You guys don\'t have a single decent city. :out:

Not to mention Boston is pretty damn fun on NYE.

Well yes it is crazy and confusing, esp. if you are not familiar with it. (Even if you are!)

But that certainly does not mean it "sucks balls. period."

I was fortunate as a youngin to have callahans and blues cafe that were 18+

I\'m all for CT for NYE, as long as its not at the webster and without a blizzard like last year.  Can\'t have NYE too far from its hometown fanbase, or else they will be playin for 30 or 40 people.

Can the band pull a crowd outside of CT on NYE?

For many people, they will be attending a 1st Tier jamband NYE show or run. What makes NYE great is the run leading up to the NYE show. If it was in NYC or Boston, chances are other larger bands will be pulling away some of the crowd, leaving the b\'fast with a possible doozie. Providence is alright but nothing special.

Also, there accomedations need to be made far enough in advance to get a hotel room and such or whatever. The more laid back of a venue is ideal but definitely not a slum.

If it is an after show for a larger fan-based band then so be it.
At this point in the game they shouldn\'t be sharing the bill with any band, i.e. Max Creek a few years ago.

It will be easiest to promote a show where the band has a large, solid fanbase. CT should be 1st choice, if nothing is available, then they should began the radius outward.

I believe after the 1000th Show and the turnout expected for the CD release party, Toads may be greased enough to give the band the NYE spot, perhaps 2 nights?
Love many, trust few and don\'t be late.
