Red Sox Nation welcomes TGR with a nearly sold out show at the new House of Blues
TGR has developed a loyal following in Boston over the past 8 years, running. Boston became the official epicenter of the East Coast tour this year with its commencement to the brand new House of Blues on Landsdowne Street. Some people said that 6pm was too early for doors and that people wouldn't go out that early in Beantown.
How wrong they were. The line stretched down Landsdowne Street underneath the shadow of Fenway Park's Green Monstah bleachers from the front of the House of Blues almost all the way down to the famous Cask & Flagon. Red Sox Nation meet TGR. Fitting since Steve and Todd Jones originally grew up on Cape Cod. These loyal TGR fans who arrived early to get in line were rewarded appropriately as the first 500 people inside received a FREE lIft ticket to Mt. Snow in Vermont. Once inside, they ran up a new record of alcohol sales for the House of Blues, who ran out of PBR by 9:30pm! Sage and Dylan were in the house signing autographs and meeting local Boston fans and answering questions about skiing and filming. Amanda the Lange girl was also there signing autographs and helping give away prizes on the stage.
1900 fans of all ages were stoked to say the least and the vibe at the House of Blues was en fuego! Many folks headed over to Game-On, a sports bar underneath the corner of Fenway Park for more spirits and a chance to rub elbows with Steve Jones, Dylan, Amanda and Sage. The rest is blurry.

**OK. We have had some sweet shows in some obvious locations, but 1,900 fans in Boston. That is pretty cool. Thanks everyone for supporting us. It means a ton!**
**Sage Cattabriga-Alosa walks on to stage to a fired up crowd. Kind of like being in a rock and roll band.**
**Re:Session packed major venues in San Francisco, New York, Denver, Seattle, Bozeman, Anchorage, Boulder, and even places as far away as Perth Australia. This one was special though. We love to see stoked skiers and boarders!**
