There are now 150 in line. With a waiting list line behind it. A friend of mine made it in time and is #150.

The band bought the fans KFC dinner, and have provided a port-a-potty.

Yeah, no... seriously, some reporter showed up at 4:30 am Thursday morning. I hadn't even considered the fact that they'd be showing up THAT early. But, it's a huge deal for the community!

At least 1/3 of the people on Saturday have never seen them before (but are giant fans). I'm so excited for them!! They will be ruined for life. It's so cool they the band is doing this little show.

Fire code on the room is 175; 150 tickets. The room is tiny so 175 will be packed like sardines!

I hope someone records it, I've a feeling it's going to be something a little different than just the hits.

Simon, I'm hoping so too but deeper cuts may be lost on this crowd. On the other hand, this is the perfect place to play those deep cuts.

I hope the windows survive! It's going to be so f'ing loud.

On Wednesday, I grabbed a quick workout at the little gym in the same shopping plaza as the Record Connection. I didn't have my headphones so I was working out without music (which SUCKS). Anyway, these two younger meatheads (one guy, one girl) were talking. They were "WHO WOULD DO STAND IN LINE?? Did you hear that they are spending the night?? Who does that? It would have to be for, like the BEST CONCERT."

I let them keep talking as I ran 3 miles then did a 5 minute plank in front of them. My parting shot as I walked out was "Oh, by the way, I am one of those people. And yeah, it will be the best show." I had on my best "you idiots" face. I smiled and kept walking.

I dunno, I just get the feeling with that setting, things could get loose. Maybe nothing full on crazy, but little jams, parts of rare songs, stuff like that. They did a crazy little in-store in a similarly small Massachusetts store years ago and played a ton of jams including A320 and did Gimme Stitches in full. You never know.

They should probably have done wristbands to prevent people sleeping outside for days - made people put them on at the time and given folks numbers to prevent people queuing outside for days. That's what they do at Rough Trade Records - buy a record and get a wristband to get into the in-store show. Easy enough to manage with a couple hundred people.

I know the flyer says "No line ups before 9AM" but what time is everyone getting there tomorrow?

Just saw the Instagram post - someone has turned up with a massive sign & the place is about the size of an elevator. Could've just passed him a Post-it note.

Well I'd prefer the people there enjoy it in the moment rather than live tweeting and instagramming.
