As a general rule of thumb, if concert starts at 6:30 and there are 2 opening acts then main act, its safe to assume main act goes on about 8:30?
Thats always been my experience.
Going to see 311 at The Woodlands this Sunday. Really have no desire to see 2 opening acts, the aggrolights or Sli...

Is your Jeep your primary vehicle or a secondary play toy? Just curious.

Watched the clip show last night on PBS. Gave me chills and couldn't go to sleep. :lol:

"Us (LSU) in the dome, for the championship, you don't stand a chance!"

The TV networks are fine with giving our opponents home night games, but don't like to showcase TS at night? :wah: :lol:
