Fair enough, but it's the same people with the same complaints. I just don't understand. I've never had those issues. At a certain point it's on the fan to get in early and know that a specific venue might have alot of traffic in/out, lots of security or a long line. I'm not going to blame i90 for being backed up on a Friday night. That's how it is. Plan for the worst and hope for the best. So many people have dealt with it with no complaining. I guess this is the place people come to bitch (although in fairness the bort has been that way for years).

^Same here. I figure it's worth it to get in early and stand around bored for a bit in order to get a nice railing spot. Plus, sometimes the openers are real fun.

both of those seem realistic. the losers who post the setlist stasik threw to them on facebook crack me the fuck up.

Only time I am "on the rail" is at Holidaze because you can walk the fuck up to it and there's not 100 VfJ custies there.

Also can get setlists much easier at SBD with a nice request and not asking during the middle of a song.
