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.
