I went to Vegoose in ’05 and didn’t have any problems whatsoever. Panic played t-mack arena and it was totally chill. No patdowns no imposing police presence anywhere around the venue. Walked into the show with a beer in my hand and a flask of whiskey in my backpocket. Love the brooklyn bowl here in nyc and look forward to seeing what they got going on in the desert. Tedeschi Trucks x3 with Soulive latenight??? THATS whats up!! IF only jane’s was doing nothings shocking the night before!
