Above & Beyond @ Bill Graham Civic Auditorium

Above & Beyond needs no introduction. Simply buy your tickets and let's go enjoy world-class trance.

Tickets are live! Buy them at Ticketmaster

---

The Game Plan

The doors open at 7:00pm (YIKES!), so we won't have too much time to pregame.

Because not everyone can get to San Francisco by 6pm, we're thinking that we'll go in two waves.

-------------

MOST IMPORTANT THING: Because we're very likely going to go in two groups, Join the GroupMe to sync up with the group in advance!

This will allow us to coordinate with ease, and make sure the night goes smoothly :)

https://groupme.com/join_group/5809862/IGbejF

-------------

First Wave of EDMers (The get-in-line-early group): 

a) Rendezvous / pregame from 5:00pm-6:30pm(-ish) @ The Hot Spot (a few blocks from Bill Graham).

b) At 6:30pm (possibly earlier depending on everyone's preferences), walk over to venue to get in line.


Second Wave of EDMers (The couldn't-make-it-to-SF-by-6:30 group – myself included)

a) Rendezvous / pregame from 6:30pm-7:15pm(-ish) @ The Hot Spot (a few blocks from Bill Graham).

b) At 7:15pm (possibly earlier depending on everyone's preferences), walk over to venue to get in line.

    Love the picture Starphaze ... My heart almost broke when I saw the words "There was a time" across the screen. It reminded me of Don't You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia :'(

    November 2, 2013

    • Starphaze

      Thank you! It reminded me of that too, actually!

    If anyone is using the mobile Meetup app, I'm posting to let all of you know: There was heavy traffic northbound to SF, and I made it into the city around 7 PM, not 5:30 as I had wanted. I didn't make it to the Hot Spot. If anyone is interested in meeting up, I'm inside the Civic Auditorium and I'm wearing a black JP 8000 shirt, lots of Kandi, and glow stuff. Hope to see some of you there! P.S. the show is barely starting underway, so no rush.

      Haha, it looked like you weren't even having a good time! I felt like I had to pump some energy into you! :-) hope I left you better than I found you :-)

      November 2, 2013

    • Starphaze

      LOL by the time I got to you, I had already been standing for 3 hours and my legs were killing me. I was already sore from too much raving and poi, haha... good to meet you, though... you definitely seem very passionate about trance! Hope to hang out again! :)

    Question! So I general admission tickets, Will I be able to get on the floor or will it be capped with the rest of the people having to find a place in the stands?

    I ask because I will not be arriving till around 10:30 or so.

    November 1, 2013

    • Abhishek G.

      When I went to Swedish House Mafia and Tool at the same venue, you could go to floor or the balcony regardless of what time you entered. No one will stop you from entering either place. Regarding the floor its just a matter of you finding your way through the crowd!

    Guys - on the A&B FB event page it says that the show is from 7p to 1a. My guess is that the first act won't start playing till 9p followed by MS54 at 10p and finally A&B at 11p. I can't imaging them taking the stage at 9p and finishing the show by 11p. Just a thought, I have no official source for this.

    November 1, 2013

    • JayDub

      Yeah, when I went to the show didn't start until at least 8

      November 1, 2013

    • Starphaze

      That's a good thing, 'cause the extra time is used for getting inside the venue. They start a little later to ensure people who were waiting outside didn't miss the main group opening (A&B).

      @Harsha, we'll (Aditi and myself) be leaving a tad later I think, so we'll join up at HotSpot or the stage. I'll need a ride back with you guys though, so we'll catch up there.

      Probably 7 p.m. is my guess. Maybe 7:30 to give all the crazy people time to check their coats downstairs.

      Try scrolling down to see if there are any tickets left over from people who offered them beforehand. Message them directly. If you can't find any, message me directly and I can send you some links to some craigslist ads and hopefully you can come about them that way. Good luck! :-)

    Have you guys decided where to meet up inside? I'll already be there with a group of friends but I would love to swing by and meet everyone. Here's a pic of the auditorium and I suggest deciding an area before you go in since reception will be horrible. http://images.ticketluck.com/venue/1066.gif

      I have talked with my boss and I will probably be leaving work around 3 p.m. In Santa Clara. If anyone would like a ride with me or if anyone wants to give me a ride, that's the time when I'm ready to go :-)

      I'm coming from Santa Clara so if anyone needs a ride... Hit me up. I foresee I will be leaving between 3 and 5 for the city, straight from work, so if this works for anyone else, let me know! There is parking at my workplace so if anybody would like to meet there and then carpool up to SF, it would work great. Then we'd just carpool back down! :-)

    Just bought a ticket yesterday. Early bird tickets were sold out, so I had to buy a $69 ticket, which ended up being more like $87 after service and processing fees.

    I'm going to be there with people who know how to create an uplifting supersaw/hypersaw trance lead from scratch in FL studio or in Ableton, and we're going to rave our butts off in tribute to A&B with fingerlights, gloves, and other glow-wear.

    I'm a recent addition to this group; would love to connect with other big trance fans from this group if you're there. I'm no stranger to raves and trance parties, but this would be my first time with this group. :) :) :)

      I'm pretty sure the whole venue is General Admission, so I'm thinking it's just early bird vs. full price ticket. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, anyone!
