I'm packed and ready to go, so I'll take another look first thing in the morning in case something becomes available at a lower price. I really want to get there early so you can get to the rail for this show. It's the least I can do since you bestowed your +1 on me!

At other shows, people have lined up very early (8am or earlier). Usually the line doesn't start growing until after 12 noon. I know I can't get there before 4:30 with my current flight and that probably won't guarantee rail.
No worries!! We'll get up there somehow. I'm having crazy luck lately.. since this is a smaller show, I don't know how big the lines will be... we'll see!

I was 11th in the line of 10. Argh. That's the third scavenger hunt where I've just missed out. I got to talk to a lot of people in line ahead of me, so I'm happy for them. Just sad for me

Super pumped I get to see MY HERO DAVE 2X in a week! Wed night (yup I was one of the lucky ones) and again in Richmond. I'm confused about one thing. 1st email says bring email confirmation, yet confirmation email says bring printed or mobile email confirmation.
Name will be printed on both tickets all the jazz about if your caught selling guest ticket.....So are we supposed to have tickets? Are they emailing/snailmailing us them? I don't wanna show up then end up in a puddle of tears if we are supposed to have actual tickets and I don't!

If you're asked for a request for your 80th show, will it be Aurora?

Whilst I hope you all have fun, I really am selfishly hoping that Weds setlist is no different than Thurs. Otherwise I might cry.

It's supposed to be every hour, starting at 10 - but they never seem to do things when they say. So i'm incredibly confused

I guess I might as well toss this out into the universe - if anyone finds themselves with a spare +1, I'll be there, I can line up, and today just so happens to be my birthday (just sayin'). I promise I'm a good rail buddy!

Did he mention anything for the noon call or just play Monkey Wrench?

Hopefully it works out for us!

I've heard them saying to call in, each hour. I think the first time was almost 11 and they just did it at 1:18ish Eastern. I just keep getting a busy signal, too. I never know when to stop calling.

C'mon Fooooo.

My understanding is you just call in when they start mentioning the contest/play the song. But with the inbuilt delays on apps/website I don't think you've got much chance unless you are hella lucky/employ a guess. I think people with an actual radio have the best shot!
