I guess maybe my main question is why have 5 clubs?
Could have 3 clubs with 3 bands each instead of 5 with 2 each, roughly.
Sure, we've always had to choose where to go/who to see in the past, but at least for the last two years there weren't bands like Gallhammer, Vreid, Sahg, Urgehal and Negura Bunget all going up against each other at competing locations.
A couple of those locations aren't exactly centrally located, Blå and Maiden come to mind.
I'm still hoping to catch at least half of Gallhammer's set after Sahg, but I'm not holding my breath. If I can't get into Gallhammer, I'll head to see Negura Bunget instead and hope I can get in.
