I'm not too keen on being shoved together like sardines for a few hours with complete stangers. Plus, there is the time spent waiting to get in the day of the concert trying to get a decent spot.
Do I have the right impression of GA tickets? Should I just go ahead and do it?
I saw the Avett Brothers in Columbus last year and going back this year. The LC is a very good place to see a concert and you're not packed in like sardines unless you want to stand by the stage. There is a lawn section that we had plenty of room and still had great views of the stage. We got there about 30 minutes before the show started and there was plenty of lawn space available and still quite a bit right before the Avett Brothers hit the stage.
I haven't been to where they were playing in Indy. I was supposed to see the Arcade Fire tomorrow night there but thankfully they moved it indoors at the Pepsi Coliseum. Can't give you a review of that venue but I may so see the Black Keys there in June. If I do, I'll let you know.
My overall opinion is that let the crazies get the area by the stage and sit a little back from the stage and enjoy.
