FOREST HILLS UPDATE: In response to some of your questions about the 8:30pm start time and set length... No fear!  Forest Hills had extended their curfew for both nights.  See you there or streaming on nugs.net.

Fingers crossed! Hopefully they bring what they were cooking up for Bonnaroo. :cry:

Will be streaming it but will be there in spirit. Wish I could be there, Forest Hills is a beautiful place. <3

I hope you're right but I honestly can't see that happening.

Outside of a Paul Simon show that started really late because of a heavy rain storm, I don't know of any show there that went past 11:00. I know a few times bands went over curfew by a couple of tunes but I don't know the repercussions of that. ( Fined, not allowed back etc)

TBH I'm kind of shocked or at least really pleasantly surprised the band somehow got the curfew extended. There's been some big acts there over the years, and many shows played  and to my knowledge this is the first time curfew has been extended ahead of time like this.

I'm really interested in how they did this and looking forward to seeing how long they actually get. Fingers crossed it's til 11:00 but anything past 10:00 to me is a gift I'll gladly accept.  Really happy about the extension for those going no doubt, and I'll be streaming every second we get. :beer:

ericm sums up how I feel perfectly.  The more I think about it the more shocked I am that this curfew extension is happening to not one but two shows!  I would love to know the back story on how this happened and who said what to whom to get it done.  Weirdly there was a King Crimson show scheduled for 9/9 that was cancelled by the promoter (?) at the last minute (fortunately they were able to move the show to Beacon Theater).  Maybe that was part of the deal?  Crazy situation but I'm happy for all of my MMJ family and can't wait to see the live stream!
