    Btw, the Craneway website says it has a 5k standing capacity. I imagine that number will be smaller given her set up and it being in the round. Brad...any insights on this?

    The gap might be so she doesn't ruin her voice, or whatever it was she nearly did last year when she canceled those dates.

    I'm supposed to be out of town for ALL of those dates, but in theory could postpone my trip and make the Wednesday show... tempting...

    I hadn't noticed the ferry passes when checking out, but went back and got one. That looks like a great system (as they drop you off at the venue entrance).

    Wow, not sure why a group of people would do that. You can rent a car for the weekend for less than 2 (or 3) of those shuttle passes purchased and had door to door service. Plus, who knows what sort of clusterfuck that's going to be. Don't do it!

    Why would it be a clusterfuck? It looks like they are only doing one ferry per show, depending on which of their fleet they use, the maximum capacity would be 500 people or less. That doesn't seem like it will be much of an ordeal to me.

    Renting a car is not less than $44 when you don't have insurance. Plus this way you could have some drinks on the way.

    a ferry ride across the bay is much more enjoyable than a car ride around the bay.

    Yeah the ferry is a great idea Geezr. Stop being cheap and live in the moment you old foagie! Imagine how beautiful of an evening this is going to be the ferry ride over(a direction I have never gone on a ferry) and then to a venue which is supposed to be ~5k which is made out of mostly windows/glass?? This sounds almost too good to be true.


    Is Bjork just playing Biophilia in its entirety? Or will there be some other stuff too?

    ticketmaster describes the VIP section ticket as "general admission seats closest to the stage". so I guess this is a seated show?

    also, wtf is the biophilia VIP package that makes it cost over $1000?!

    I'm no longer able to make it to the wednesday show and looking to go tuesday instead. they aren't sold out yet, though, but before buying/selling I though I'd post first in case anyone is interested to trade nights.

    I noticed tickemaster has a handy warning for these shows "aren't many tickets left" or "no tickets available" for the saturday show and ferry trip respectively. I hope that feature persists for all shows.

    ticketmaster has a seating map that I hadn't noticed in the past:



    I also noticed that the ferry departs from pier 43 1/2. eff.

    these shows haven't sold out yet, weird.

    very weird that these haven't sold out... I want to go... hrm.

    I was surprised at the venue choice. I went there for a kiddie rave once a few years back. Giiiiant warehouse, with 50 foot paneled windows on the side of the warehouse that looks out at the water. cold and windy too.

    edit: nice meeting you the other night, gb.

    seriously though. I think I was standing there with my jaw wide open in awe the whole time. beyond fucking amazing.

    There was no opener and the ticket said 8:30 but she started more around 9 (I'm guessing cause the sun still wasn't set and she wanted to wait til it was dark enough.
    Seating was awesome. We got there at about 8:10 and got a couple spots about 10 feet from the rail on the side opposite the VIP seating. The space felt much smaller and more intimate than I expected. oh my god though it was such an incredible experience, I'm excited to see what ya'll think.

    What he/she said. Take the Ferry if you can. It was really exciting crossing the bay and getting dropped off right infront of the venue and really beautiful going back to the city. Björk was even playing on the ferry with all the fans drinking and getting really amped for the show.
