Venue | Date Lincoln Theater | 04/02/2016

Left my house at 4 and change headign to the DC Metro. Ticket trouble trying to get a paper fare card, seems you can’t get one anymore. They are trapping you with Smartcrds, that process takes 10 minutes. Finnaly we board train and are set to head to venue. Chatting and nor paying attention along the way we realize we’ve missed our line change stop, by the time we realize the train is moving agin. Now weve overshot our stop by 2 stops. We exit and head back to where we need to be. We board the train to our destination and actuall make it there. We exit the tunnel, however when we get to street level it doesn't look like expected, turns out we exited the tunnel at the far end. We get our bearings straight and head towards the Lincoln Theater.
We arrive at Bens Chili Bowl for dinner. Seated at the far end of the counter (Same exact spot as last years Idol Concert) we place our order with the same guy as last year. Loaded Half Smokes with Chili Chees Fries. We chat and people watch as we enjoy our dinner. After dinner we exit onto the busy street. People are starting to enter the theater, so we find a spot in line and head into the venue. We decide on what T-shirts we will purchase. Then purchase 2 chances to will a Satriani Signed guitar and  trip  supporting Little Kids Rock. Show is about to start so we head to our seats. We’ve got great seats, almost center row K.
Joe and band hit the stage. Setlist is below. The show goes well and sounds good, the band energetic and it appears they are having a great time.
