    Hey guys,

    My two surferette daughters and surfer wife want to know if there will be any good concerts up in the upstate 4th of July week. No country, Brittany, Back Street, etc.
    Looking for Jack Johnson, Cold Play, Pepper, etc. Good music, something that the Mafia wouldn't be ashamed of.......

    As for me, let me know if Merle Haggard comes to town.

    Capt Jim,

    Our last concert we had here was horrible. I wish we could get people like Jack Johnson,Coldplay, etc etc here in the upstate. I don't know of anyone coming July 4th weekend.

    Anderson's "big" concert is memorial day weekend. Freedom Weekend aloft, is what its coined. We had Ryan Seacreast or how ever you spell his name and a few other pop "stars". I got up in the middle of the venue and left.

    You might want to check the bilo center in G-vegas. It usually pulls a few big names, but thats it as far the upstate. bilo center

    If its worth a trip, the Verizon wireless ampi-theater in Charlotte, gets all the business here

    I actually looked at some of the shows and it looks pretty dead. I saw kenny Chesney last year when he came here and I wasn't impressed. He was the only country singer I liked but after the crap he pulled at last years, I doubt I pay to see him again.


    Sorry Capt Jim, but welcome to the upstate. About the only thing to do here is drink, reproduce, work on your cruiser, or go to down town clemson(and thats only fun when school is in session).

    Sorry about the bad attidude...but my summer time blues are in full effect!

    Yea, the concert thing down here is pretty lame, too. I live about 2 miles from a great venue but they always book crap. The good ones that manage to show up always sell out before they are made public. I could never figure that out, but it is always the case, most recently, with Jack Johnson. :mad:

    Still looking forward to coming up everytime. Nothing wrong with that list of things to do you provided, Matt.

    Leaving tomorrow and will arrive late tomorrow evening.

    Thanks Marshall. I'll pass this along to my crew. Briefly looked at the website but I'm off to work.
    Where is the Handle Bar located and what kind of venue is it? My two girls are 15 and 18.

    I hit up freedom weekedn aloft a couple summers back and saw John Mayer and Michelle Branch it was pretty good. But I'm sitting about 20 minutes from house of blues here in conway so I get all kinds of good shows if I want to go. Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson were here a couple weeks back. Foreigner will be there on the first got to love that classic rock. Sister Hazel and Dezerays Hammer on the 9th but I'll be up in clemson then. Some other people playing in the next month, Weezer, Vertical Horizon, Howie Day, Chevelle, O.A.R., and of course who could miss Hootie and the Blowfish.

    well....

    Oolenoy Community Center holds Blue Grass Jams
    each Friday and Saturday night. Hot dogs dinners are
    available to attendees.
    The Pumpkintown Opry also has picking on Saturday nights.
    The Opry is located at the intersection of 11 & 8. Look
    for the huge yellow rocking chair.
    The Oolenoy Community Center is where the Pumpkin
    Festival is held each Oct.
    Hehe......I doubt the Surferettes will hear any Bob Marley
    tunes there, or any Beach Boys either. ;)
    See ya'll soon old pals!
    Give me a ring when ya'll hit the road.
    By the way. Uncle Jimmy of Aunt Sue's fame wants
    to do another breakfast feast for us while ya'll are in town.
    I'll bet Paul and his gang would like that too.
    We'll talk when ya'll arrive.

    Short drive up Highway #11. Take US #I-85 to the SC border and get off at the
    highway #11 exit. I'd guess 40 miles or so from that exit.
    Pumpkintown is located at the intersection of SC # 8 and SC #288.
    Pumpkintown Opry is on #11 at #8.
    Man, Athens is a sweet town. Southern Belles galore.

    Man, I love it, Dave. Down here, a short drive is considered to be a 5-10 minute drive. Up there, It's a short drive from Athens to Pumpkintown. :grinpimp:

    :bounce: :beer: :bounce2: :cheers: :bounce2: Looking forward to getting up there :bounce: :beer: :bounce2: :cheers: :bounce2:

    Bob Marley types. Usually, from down south, but down south Jamaica :flamingo: , not South Carolina. Very religious types. Always partaking in their sacrament.....

    Never saw any around Ceasar's Head or Cleveland, neither.......
