    ^the $3 beers are definitely tough to beat there, but boy...their ambience and generic presentation really blow. Acme is in my neighborhood and I never go there.

    Have you guys tried Bistro SF Grill at Divis/California yet? Similar wide variety of protein but the quality/creativity is far superior. Plus, they have a great bar and the ambience is par excellence. They also have live music there most nights.

    lol yeah, Acme is definitely a fast food place by nature. the experience is delicious but nothing beyond that.

    I will have to check out this bistro grill though. thanks for the tip.

    When are UK DJs/producers NOT having visa issues? I'm told that almost every time, it's a paperwork issue, not anything they have "done" though

    Tricky, in particular, always seems to have Visa issues.

    Tricky was busted on drug charges back in the day though, yay? I think that's why he in particular always has more trouble.

    This time though you can blame the Gov't Shutdown.

    He went to prison for passing forged currency when he was young. I assume he has other juvenile charges besides that.

    Edit: I'm pretty sure it wasn't just drugs. By his own admission, he committed quite a lot of crimes while he was a juvenile.

    it's odd that criminal activity when he was young would matter now given that he's gotten US visa several times within the last decade.

    Not sure if I'll make it Saturday, but I'd rather see Danny Brown. Tricky has been crap the past couple times I saw him. Real disappointment.

    he is very hit or miss. that's what makes a festival set a good opportunity though... if it's bad you haven't wasted a night, just go to silent disco or get food or whatever.

    I'm kinda bummed that Tricky wont be there but not too upset because his new album was just ok. Danny Brown actually seems like a reasonable sized replacement. I'll have to check out Old.

    Alright, its happening in a few days. This is my first TI finally, anyone have any words of wisdom on the fest?

    Is the shuttle system a pain in the ass?
    Whats your favorite food vendors?
    Whats your favorite viewing area?
    Are the stages loud?
    Is the ferris wheel worth it?
    Are the crowds worse/better than Outside Lands?
    Is the crowd Bro heavy?
    Will I feel like punching three people or thirty people?
    Etc

    Whats your favorite food vendors? It's not a foodie fest like OSL, but a few names jump out at me this year: Farmer Brown tops my list, with Rosamunde and Spicy Pie as solid staples.
    Whats your favorite viewing area? I've personally found it best to stay on the left side of the Bridge Stage's sound board, which gives me a good vantage point to that stage and enough wiggle room to get an okay spot at the other stage.
    Are the stages loud? Not particularly, but I always wear ear plugs.
    Is the ferris wheel worth it? I had a good time on it with my girl during Beach House a couple years back. The mix of their music and the view of the sunset over the city couldn't be beat.
    Are the crowds worse/better than Outside Lands? I suppose it depends on who's around you. If you don't like your neighbors, try to move somewhere else.
    Is the crowd Bro heavy? Not that I've noticed, but I often skip the DJs/EDM/brostep, so that could have something to do with it.
    Will I feel like punching three people or thirty people? Depends on how much PCP you've had.
    Also, I couldn't find the map on the main website, but it's on the mobile app, complete with vendor listings and locations. Check it out.

    Thanks donuts for the thoughtful response. I'll make sure to leave the angel dust at home this time.

    Yeah, the app seems to have a lot more info than the website. Hopefully, I can fit in a ferris wheel ride. Maybe during Real Estate although that will be before sunset.

    From a story a couple of weeks ago - According to a press release, UK police officials failed to disclose the details behind the singer/producer’s juvenile offenses (joyriding and forgery of the crown) in time to approve his paperwork, forcing the cancellation of stops in Philadelphia, Boston, Denver and more.

    I'm sure the govt. shutdown didn't help either.

    I think the crowd at TI is a lot worse than OSL, which is the reason I hadn't been back to TI for the last couple of years. Maybe not so much bro-ish but like a lot of kids who show up to get fucked up and listen to indie & EDM darling acts of the moment. There doesn't really seem to be a lot of that on the lineup this time though, so I'm hopeful....

    that makes more sense. it's not directly because he has criminal offenses, just that people don't get their shit together to handle it in time.
