    See you (most likely) also there. They are also coming back again with Oso Oso and Future Teens September 18.

    Good to know. Idk if I’ll go cus I’ll still be tired from Riot and I don’t listen to those bands.

    I was supposed to go to Los Campesinos and Retirement Party on the night with Adult Mom but I really don’t listen to LC that much and see Retirement Party plenty so this feels like the right move.

    Anyone have recommendations for areas to avoid staying? Looking at Air Bnb and the areas closer to the festival seem a bit sketchy.

    public transportation from most of the city to the festival is super convenient, pick safe instead of close.. how many people are you planning to stay with, if it's just 2 or 3.. just get a hotel room on the loop through hotwire or priceline it'll all come out the same

    PT last year was ass cheeks, Pink line took 45 minutes to show up on the way out and then was completely full when it did. Had to jog the 2.5 miles back to my car

    I think last year's pink line mess was due to construction.. I'd safely assume that has been fixed..

    So psyched GWAR is in Grand Rapids the Monday after. So excited for a long weekend.

    I've seen them a few times over the years, though not in the last like, 6-7 years or so. From what I recall? They always put on a really fun show.

    Boys of Fall is doing a pre-show on 9/12.

    Looks like ticket prices increased, which I assume is a good sign for how this is selling so far! Feels like things are back on track this year. I just need the daily lineups

    Any hints on the after shows?

    I’m guessing American Football and Against Me! are doing ones since they both all live in a Chicago. Same with Ganser, Kali Masi, and Sincere Engineer but those three could all be openers since they are smaller local acts.

    I really think Against Me! and TBS will both be doing more album plays at an after show.

    I feel like the aftershows are generally pretty random. Last year in particular, I was (pleasantly) surprised.

    But generally, a mid-level reunion act is a safe bet for an aftershow.

    I'm seconding a guess that AM! and TBS will play aftershows as well, given the nature of their tours.

    Gingerman Tavern has occassionally done acoustic shows over the years. I wouldn't be surprised to see Sincere Engineer do that (or just slotted as opener for AM!; that would work too).

    American Football is probably out since they have dates on Friday and Saturday. My guess is they'll close a side stage on Sunday.
