    That's gonna be one helluva week!

    Had a serious debate with myself about committing to the Friday GY!BE show without knowing what line-up looks like for Coachella (already going to first weekend). But then I realized I barely make it out of Coachella alive doing just one weekend.

    EDIT: offering up my place for pre-gaming on Thurs. Short bus ride from my place to the venue. PM me if you're game so I can know how much bourbon to buy.

    Geezr, I'm sure you would know this since you saw them this year at GAMH. Is the capacity really 1200? The tickets sold out right away last year I would assume (like ny shows) but since they're playing 5 nights, which night do you think will sell out the fastest? I'm still debating which Coachella weekend I should go before buying these tickets......

    if I go weekend 1, gonna try for monday/tues (is it about 6 hrs to SF from Indio? forgot you have to drive everywhere in CA!)

    if I go weekend 2, have to go on wed/thurs....but that 4/20 show is very tempting.

    are dinner/ticket package worth it?

    ps you guys think they'll add san diego area show?

    Dinner seats are in the balcony that wraps around the stage. The food is okay-ish, but not worth the added price. If you find having a guaranteed seat for a Godspeed show to be worth the price, then have at it.

    Friday will sell out the fastest. The dinner seats are gone and most of the regular GA tickets, as well.

    Last years tickets sold out right away because it was their first shows in SF in ages/reunion. These will eventually sell out, as well, but not nearly as fast as it would otherwise.

    It's about a 9 hour drive to/from Indio<-> SF. Depends on traffic. Can be quicker. Can be slower. If you hit LA at the wrong time, expect to add an hour or two to your travel.

    What Brad has said. And, I think capacity is smaller...say 700ish (Brad?). I am surprised it hasn't yet sold out...maybe because there was much less hype around this announcement compared to the earlier one. But, yeah...it will sell out soon.

    Thanks guys for your input! GAMH sounds like a smaller venue than Brooklyn Masonic Temple or St. Paul the Apostle so I'm gonna buy some tickets today. There are two options for tickets: will call or print at home. In case my friends and I can't make it to one of the nights, is this venue ok with transferring the tickets to someone else? Meaning are print out tickets like Ticketfast type where you can email it to someone for an exchange? I'm leaning towards going Coachella weekend 2 so wed/thurs shows for me I think......

    ps Didn't know it would take 9 hrs to get to SF!

    Comparatively, it's like driving from Brooklyn to Columbus, OH. California is a really long state.

    Here's a visual (there will be no tables/chairs set up on the floor). Upper level has the dining area / minimal GA seating / smaller bar / standing room.

    Lower level is all GA standing with a slightly larger bar.



    Personally, it's my favorite venue in town for ambiance and general overall quality of shows.

    I think the fire sign said 650 which means they probably allow 750 in.

    Thanks for the picture! This venue looks very similar to Irving Plaza (more narrow on the floor) and seems to be the perfect space for Godspeed. Super excited to see them there now!

    I'm dying to see how they handle Coachella. I can only imagine they have the upmost standards for their performances, and GV would give them their highest respects.

    They're starting another tour soon. Supposedly this is from a new song they played in Quebec a couple of nights ago.

    They are supposedly selling their new album on their tour, as in starting tonight in Boston. Wow.
