Crowded Streets is playing before and after the concert at The Bull Pen, which is this big open space across from Nats Stadium where bands play after baseball games. Should be a BLAST!

That's probably just a numbering system for the tickets.. I've had GA with seat rows & numbers... you'll be in a quarentined area (that sounded bad) with a good view..

I'm down the first baseline, right field, row T I believe.. too old for the field.. HAHA

Setlists so far are pretty good, so I'm pretty excited for this show. It's my only show this year unfortunately (unless Wrigley in September happens)

Never been to DC so I was curious if anyone can give me some advice to traffic/parking issues? We're staying with friends outside DC and we're trying to decide driving vs. public trans... thank you in advance

I live just outside DC in Arlington, and I think we are going to take a cab and/or the Metro. Parking around there is expensive and limited, and the Metro will undoubtedly be very crowded and it experiences a lot of delays and breakdowns so I think a taxi might be our best bet to get to the show. Afterwards it will be impossible to get a cab so we'll probably take the Metro then. I hope you enjoy your trip here! We have a pretty good little city to see

If you do drive in and park, make sure you confirm the hours of the parking ramp and that it will still be open when the show ends and you're ready to leave. Alot of the ramps' hours are tied to the 9-5ers.

I'm happy to help! In post #21, I posted a link to the Bull Pen, which is across the street from the stadium where people usually gather before/after games. They are having a local DMB tribute band play so it should be pretty fun. Other than that, the stadium is fairly new so the area around it is still kind of transitioning. I'm going to stick with the Bull Pen.

I just got an update from Crowded Streets and they are no longer playing after the concert, but they are doing two sets BEFORE the concert at the Bull Pen. This is a-ok with me... after hearing the real thing it would be tough to hear an imitation, even if the imitation is really good, which they are!
