What a couple of Great Shows ! ! !

I got "Dreams" both nights, which makes me very happy since that's my favorite ! ! !

We were able to get a table both nights right behind the soundboard, fantastic view and sound. The Fox Oakland is truly a wonderful venue. The first night we shared our table with Paul, a guy from Humboldt County , he was a "Highly Kind" guy. Last night we shared the space with Mac from New York, another kind fellow who bought us drinks.

The part about the socks is that The Fox has such a great ventilation system that my toes got very cold. I had just wore sandals so yesterday we had to stop at Walgreens so I could buy a pair of socks to put on once inside.

We saw MundeleinHoward, Robslob, Sheep & Denise

The only bad part . . . nothing to do with the concert, was that I lost my camera
So please send me all your best shows ~ LOL ~ or a nice digital camera !

My head is still fuzzy from just waking up and trying to get things together for our road trip up the coastline to go to The Portland and Gorge shows. Looking forward to hearing more great music, meeting people and seeing the coastline and Redwood National Park.

After that next stop . . . WANEE ! ! !

Peaches & Peace to everyone

Ayla, sorry to hear about your camera. You & Slammer had a sweet spot both nights. We were right at the stage in front of Gregg last night. Only had our cell phones to take pictures, which all came out mediocre at best. I love the Fox, we had plenty of room down front, everyone was respectful. At times, in our section, I thought we were in a coffee house in Amsterdam, if you catch my drift. The security at the Fox was so lax. On top of that, everyone that worked there was really friendly, you can tell they had some customer service training. They all greet you with "Welcome to the Fox", say hello. Never saw anyone get hassled. ABB, please, please. please, come back to the Fox. Plus, it's a beautiful theater.

Sounds like a successful FOX run!!! Glad everybody had fun and got some good shows (although sorry about your camera, Ayla ). Will definitely have to check for any shows happening at this venue next time I'm in that part of the country .... sounds wonderful.

Save travels Ayla and Slammer!!! The coastline and Redwoods sounds wonderful and you've got a show awaiting you at the end!!! Life doesn't get much better than that...
