hey guys - I just saw Ratdog at little venue called Innsbrook, VA where the Mule are playing on July 29th-
This place is in the middle of a business park with a stage set in a field in the back corner.
Just a word of caution, there is NO parking lot scene -
as soon as you get to the entrance there are signs posted stating "positively no tailgating". Security is extremely tight, with lots of uniformed and plainclothes undercover officers sneaking around -
Do NOT display open containers, and DO NOT "light up" inside the venue - many people were hauled out of the place for doing so-
the good news is that the sound was great, there's lots of beer available inside for $4 each, and it's very easy to get close to the stage if you want - the other bad news is that they SHUT THE BAND DOWN at 10:30 PM - that's it you're done
I'm still undecided if I'm gonna make the Mule show - but if you're going plan on get there, go in, and then go home - don't plan to party there
