I agree. I always take that exit. But it's leading up to the bridge that is usually a problem. It's always hit or miss. I've driven up to BR at that time hundreds of times and it's always a different situation. I'm hoping tonight is smooth sailing.
Yeah, I wouldn't expect Periphery to start playing before 9:00, though. Also, getting to the front will be annoying because there are usually a lot of selfish pricks in a Deftones crowd that force their way to the front. I'll probably just hang out in the back.
