The concerts would be much better if the village would actually get a sound person that knows what their doing. All you hear is "BOOM BOOM BOOM" I fill like I should be at the EmNEm Concert with that much bass...

I've been to all the NL concerts. This one was way too crowded. The lawn was packed, and people were getting vicious. They would put chairs down on unoccupied blankets and butt their chair right up to an unoccupied chair. There were absolutely no aisles to walk down if you needed to go to bathroom, or get something to eat or drink. I couldn't even imagine if there was an emergency. I think they are going to have to rethink "capacity" for next year. I hope REO Speedwagon is better, but if the series is sold out it could be the same crowd.
