Columbus
« on: December 13, 2014, 10:48:48 PM »

There have been a bunch of local venue threads that it seems nearby cities could use one too. I get up to Columbus the most, so here is a little. Right now I can just do weekends, so I won't have everything noteworthy.

1-10 The Reverend Horton Heat – Skully’s

FYI: I'm heading to the C-Bus on Monday to see Meg Myers.

Then heading back on May 30 to catch the Stones at Ohio Stadium. Looks like it's pretty much sold out, so that's gonna be 75,000 people or so. I'd be interested in getting some tips about where to catch a "park and ride" to the stadium. Any thoughts from our resident Columbusians (I just invented that word)? looking at you Poolio...

Good. I don't want to share Meg with you.  :pirate:

May 30th, eh? Shit, I've got an event at the Wexner Center that night (it's a block away for those keeping track)... Traffic will be awful. 

I'll get you transportation information as best as I can. Bus routes can be a little wonky on Saturday nights but I should be able to guide you to something.

ETA: Anyone going to They Might be Giants this weekend?

Well, there's no park & ride for this particular Saturday. But, your best bet is to check COTA's website: http://www.cota.com/

There are a few parking garages nearby and, I am sure, there will be parking at the Schottenstein Center.

If it were me and I were coming from Cinci, I'd look into parking in one of the garages by either Nationwide Arena or in the Short North and catch Route 2 (Local N. High Street) bus up to campus and walking to the stadium.

I'd also check OSU's website for any parking/bus information for that day.

Very helpful, many thanks. I'm gonna plan exactly on doing that (park near Nationwide, take the bus up N. High)

Definitely check the bus times. Especially for the post-concert ride. And check COTA's website, there are a couple other options to get you back to your car in case you miss the Route 2.

I'm not going to be able to go to the Bo Ningen and TVOTR show tonight at the Newport, so I'm looking to shift two tickets.  Any interest? 

No?

Why not, dummies?  Bo Ningen is worth the ticket price alone and I guess TVOTR is alright.  Jesus.

I'm taking my daughter to Columbus tomorrow to see one of her favorite bands.  The show is at the A&R Music Bar.  Does anyone have any suggestions on places to park?

There is a lot of parking right in the area. If I remember right, across the street is a garage if you prefer that. I usually park behind the building as there is a large parking lot behind it.
