Ho hey, that's a big crowd

There was apparently a huge crowd* for Monday's free The Lumineers show at Upstate Concert Hall, and the club reached capacity quickly. The line reportedly stretched through the parking lot out to Route 146 -- and about 1,000 people didn't get in. The band posted on its Facebook page that it wanted to play a few songs out in the parking lot for the crowd that couldn't get in -- but was headed off the by county sheriff's office.

I've found that anecdotes from neighbors, friends, or internet "strangers" can only take you so far. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you get out there and visit these schools during the school year, during the school day to get a feel for things. In the last few months, my wife and I have made a series of visits to our local elementary, middle + high-school. During those visits, we had the chance to talk to multiple teachers and see the kids "in action". It was very VERY telling in a lot of ways - both good and bad.
