    You'd be surprised. My in-laws have family in Michigan City, Indiana. That's pretty far north (in Indiana). They definitely share some sentiment with the South and it rising again.

    TBH, I've seen more self-branding with confederate flags in the North than the South throughout the entirety of my life. I was born in Texas and have spent a lot of time in Louisiana and Florida as well. For most people I know in Ohio and Michigan that do this, it's more of an "in your face" thing, and there's a glaring lack of historical relevance or awareness in all of that.

    I'm surprised more people don't like the metal and hardcore stuff they book. I'm really stoked that Amon Amarth is playing, but HIGHLY doubt I will make it until their set. I'm also wondering if drinking horns will be allowed into the fest?

    I don't see why not. We bring in literal tons of giant glass bottles. As long as it's empty to start, since it is a container.

    I have, though perhaps I was blinded by the temporary diabetes from the cream puffs they have.

    They haven't, but it's safe to assume they're the closing act which won't go on until last. With DLD ending at 9 I'm guessing they'll go on at 7:30.

    Such great beer at OTP. I'm part of the mug club there, unfortunately since I moved up here it doesn't get used as much

    FWIW, someone on the FB DLD page said they got notification from FedEx their tickets shipped.

    Just checked my confirmation email from etix and it states this for shipping. That FedEx grain of salt just got bigger.

    Yes, there were a couple options for shipping tickets.

    I don't recall there being an option to change the shipping method. That being said, I was in such a rush to get the order submitted that I probably did not pay much attention to the shipping method.

    If I remember correctly, the difference in the shipping charge between USPS and FedEx for the tickets was like $6-7 compared with approx. $20. Easy to not remember, as I don't think that is much of a choice at all if you have any faith in the postal service.

    Last year I went the FedEx route and I got my tickets after many people had already received theirs with USPS. This year I choose not to spend the extra $ for no good reason.

    USPS are beasts. I don't know how they do it, but in my experience, they go at lightspeed compared to FedEx, and FedEx ain't no slouch usually.

    ...talking many things, not just tickets :wink:

    Does USPS also send an e-mail notification when tickets are shipped?

    I thought I remembered seeing one before, but it depends on the shipper. I can't say for certain regarding these ones.

    I sent Etix an e-mail inquiring about the tickets. I'm curious to see their response. The lack of info lately has me bored. I'll post their response as soon as I hear something.

    No doubt. FFF probably gave them pre-typed responses to use.
    This is my hobby. Always the poopy head you are. :flushed:
    It'd be worse for my buddy as I sold him my set of tickets. My wife has the good ones :wink:

    BREAKING NEWS!

    Per Etix:

    "The venue is shipping the tickets this week. It usually takes 7-10 days for delivery."

    So, there we have it.
