Mr. White

Got an e-mail today with the schedule. Not happy that it has My Morning Jacket only slotted for 1 hr. & 45 minutes (9:15 - 11:00).

If they can give DMB a full 2 hours on Sunday, then the headliners who are actually from Kentucky surely deserve 2 at a minimum. I was really bummed to see that, and to see the overlap with Billy Strings. I'd choose MMJ over literally anyone, so it's not a tough decision to make, but I'd have liked to see Billy for the 6th time this year!

Still, being at my first Jacket show in 756 days will be cathartic for sure.

Got my single day Railbird Festival wrist band for Saturday in the mail today!

Took this photo to share with everybody (Railbird wrist band, My Morning Jacket The Waterfall Project wrist band with Deluxe Edition/Box of The Waterfall in background).

I am in 100% agreement with y'all.  1:45 is way too short of a slot for MMJ especially after all of this darn waiting and Billy is the only other act I would really want to see on Saturday so any overlap is totally unacceptable.

As long as live nation gives them at least 2 hours at bonnaroo, they'll partially redeem themselves. But it's still unfair to those who are only doing Railbird and not roo

Got this e-mail earlier today.

I have two wristbands for sale - DM if anyone is interested. I'm selling for exactly what I paid for (not just sticker, taxes, etc., not a cent over what I paid overall). I have the physical wrist bands and will mail out within 1 day.

I'll also pay shipping. I truly want a real Jacket fan to go.

Railbird revised the schedule. MMJ gets 15" more, playing 9:00-11:00. Better, but still an hour short...

11:00 feels like a pretty early curfew for a Saturday night in a college town. Hopefully they play later than scheduled!

Yeah, it's also on the outskirts of town, so I wouldn't think the "noise factor" will be much of a problem ... unless the rich folks who live in Lexington have that thing so tightly regulated that nobody would dare violate the ordinance ... if there is one in place. Hoping they rock and roll well into the night!!!

Getting antsy! Excited to see the setlist from Charlotte to try and figure out the mood of the tour start.

There are 2 of us staying at the TownePlace Suites for Railbird, but don't have transportation & are looking for a ride to the festival.  We have a VIP parking pass we can offer for the ride if anyone can take us :headphones:

Mr. White

Been nervous and excited for days now.

As they say in the concert attendance business, "One more sleep!"

I'll be driving up to Frankfort (about 1 hour and 30 minutes for me) to my high school friend's house, where he'll be picking up the driving/parking duties.

Hope everything goes smoothly.

Storms look like they are holding off at least for now.  Enjoy the show!
