    I have so many great memories from the Eagles Ballroom! Primus, Garbage, Jason Mraz, Chris Cornell!!! That's a truly special venue. I've also seen some great shows at the Rave and the Rave bar, and I've played the Rave bar a few times as well! Man, so many memories!!!

    Go for happy hour, discount on drinks and a great menu of samplers of their entrees all at a reduced price. Off season is a great time to visit with locals.

    Small lift, slightly oversized tires, well...
    I'm sure...the guy that tuned me was really good too...

    Chicago (North side): 2.5 hr
    Minneapolis: 5 hr
    STL: 8 hr
    Lansing MI: 6+ hr

    Could've done OTT, he's only 40 mi from me...wanted KDMax.

    Wouter did the tune on a former co-worker's truck, he was happy. Wausau: 2 hr.

    (note: all times dependent upon how badly speed limits get bruised)

    Unless Garbage played there more than once, I was probably at the show you were at.

    Yes, so many 2 drink minimum free ticket shows there when I was going to Marquette. Saw some of the best Ska shows in the Rave bar.

    I saw the Black Keys at Fiserv Forum a few years ago and it was a legit stadium show with amazing light shows and pyrotechnics and whatnot. In the much smaller venue it was a very different intimate show and I loved it. I did watch most of the show from down on the floor and only went up to the VIP area for a bit. Neat perspective from there. I wouldn't pay extra for that access, but it was free, so I enjoyed it.

    I preferred the smaller venues. Around 2-3k people.
    Would generally start on the floor then weasel my way back toward the soundboard. Usually get the best sound by the soundboard.
    I.E. Filmore in Denver. Palace Theater, Cities. Overture Center or Barrymore, Madison. Pabst theater, Milwaukee. etc.

    Ok, I made a few changes, so this should be the final version. If anyone would prefer a different picture of their truck, please let me know.
