Easy Allies in Concert Meet up [Discussion]



  • @ZyloWolfBane I've never really found it that hard to find parking a block or two off the strip. Especially on a Tuesday.

    I think the last time I went bar hopping in the area I said screw it and left my car at Ameoba music lol.

    But there are a few shopping centers within the area, might just play it safe and hoof it over to the venue.

    Wish so much that I could go! Make sure you all take lots of pictures and show the rest of us! :D



  • Will there be some sort of stream or an Easy Update or some video that will cover this event? I cannot travel to LA during that time, and I cannot afford a hotel or accommodations at that time. I hope there's other EZA streaming stuff earlier in the day on March 21st.

    I hope so, but they haven't said yet. It's kinda sticky to plan because you never know who might not want to be filmed. Huber had that problem with the meetup.



  • It will be recorded and I wouldn't be surprised if you see something in Easy Update like we did with the meetup but nothing like that has been confirmed.



  • I'm a little confused by the tickets... should I have waited to get a ticket before getting flights? I imagine its related to venue capacity. Do we have any more information on this?

    Also for people who will be there is there before hand is there any interest in planning to meet up together and explore Hollywood?



  • @Mango Honestly we don't know. It's one of the annoying things about leaving the announcement so late.

    I'm hoping the fact that it is this late, that there will be a plentiful supply of tickets. I asked Jones on one stream and he didn't seem concerned about tickets selling out.



  • @tokeeffe9 okay that's reassuring. It would be weird to set a date, have people show but then not have enough tickets. I'm sure they would have thought of this. I'm curious if they're hoping to sell tickets to non EZA community members as well? like as a form of advertisement?

    In any case I'm super excited. Should be a good time all around



  • @tokeeffe9 They also thought they'd get like $5k when they launched the Patreon.



  • @Joetown I'm not going to lie. This has crossed my mind more than once.

    Still I believe in Jones.



  • They also had many more fans turn up to the PSX Meet and Greet than they'd anticipated. I trust them, I just think they underestimate their own popularity sometimes!

    I met up with the other people in my travel group today and we planned out where we hope to go each of the days we'll be in LA... it's starting to hit me that I'll be in LA in a month!



  • I'll be flying into Burbank around 5pm on the 20th. Know my way around most of the major metro LA area, and though I'm staying and working in the Valley, I'll be mobile.

    Would be down to meet up for dinner or what have you Monday night.



  • Brandon has posted some new information over on Patreon.

    Patreon - Easy Allies in Concert information

    I'll update the OP later regarding the new info.



  • I'm so excited for this!

    Now to start looking for good hotel prices around the theatre and book the flight. I cannot wait!

    Who here is going? Anyone know any great food spots to check out?



  • @GranArcanum well in regards to food, there's a bunch of places nearby. "GREATNESS" may be determined by your budget and personal taste though.

    Lots of tourist trap style places in Hollywood, but even those seem to satisfy many people. :)



  • OP updated now with the most important information.



  • Nearby food of the cheap/fast variety:

    There's a Popeyes Chicken next door.
    Smoke's Poutinery. For our friends visiting from the great white North.
    Umami Burger isn't too bad.
    Calle Tacos It's an indoor taco truck , I'd maybe try to hit Trejos first.
    Trejos Cantina Danny Trejo's (Yes, Machete) second taco joint. They have good vegetarian options too, if you're into that. More expensive than normal street tacos, but they're pretty good.
    Ball and Chain is a gastropub that specializes in burgers and meatballs.
    I think Yakipan is across the street. They don't have a website, but it's asian fusion noodle bowls. It's alright.

    There's an In N Out down the street, but it's like 7 blocks or something. Probably worth the walk if you've never had a double double before. Be forewarned out of towners - the fries are lukewarm garbage.
    I generally get them "animal style" or you're just eating bland, spongey potatoes. Animal style adds mustard onions, cheese, and thousand island. If that sounds gross to you - probably skip the fries :)



  • @GranArcanum You might want to look into Air BnB for a place to stay, that's what me and my group decided to use! Some of the cheaper ones are just a room in someone's house/apartment, and cost can vary depending on where in the city you want to stay, but at least it gives you some other options aside from hotels. If you use that link you'll get $40 off too. :)



  • @logic__error Yeah, that looks like it's what I'm going to end up doing :)
