    Remember the heat and the blindfolds when he played 51 3rd street in ’03?
    Sublimely memorable, thanks to Jmart and Jsteve.

  12. Glad to see everyone is so amped on the piece – I checked out a staff preview yesterday, and it was just awesome. Preemptive congratulations to the person that wins this pair – that showing is now sold out (as are all the original 8 PM performances)!

    To those that do not win the tickets: we just opened up two more on Friday 04/29 + Saturday 04/30 at 9:30 PM – hope you can make one of them!

  13. Oh, and glad someone here was at the 51 3rd street performance way back – that was one of the wildest shows I have ever put on. I seriously thought that the Troy police were going to respond to a noise complaint (one of the openers was so loud that they overheated one of the speakers!), and would walk into a packed pitch-black room of people wearing blindfolds and just arrest everyone on suspicion of being in a really loud cult. Thankfully, that did not happen. What a great freaking night.
