Just saw your comment on the DC page about being new to the area. The Merriweather is an awesome venue. It's outside in this park in the middle of the woods and is known as the best outdoor venue on the east coast for its acoustics. Saw Incubus and Jack Johnson there, both shows were great. I never been to the Susquehanna Bank Center in Philly (which is actually in Camden, NJ across the river) but I heard that it kinda sucks seeing a show there because the fans are so shitty ( a lot of NY metropolitan people I guess). Never been to VA Beach Amphitheater, but have only heard great things about it (and its right on the beach, I mean come on). And Charlotte NC has a big music scene so they're probably a cool place too. Hope that helps!
