Merriweather Post Pavilion is partnering with Rock & Bus to cart fans to and from the Columbia, Md., concert destination. But that's just part of the story. Rock & Bus operates luxury coaches that feature TVs, DVDs, PA systems and bathrooms. According to the company, fans will arrive like "rock stars" and won't have to sweat the driving (or the parking, for that matter). And less cars on the road mean less emissions in the air! How 'bout that?
“There are lots of fans that live in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore that don’t own cars; some because they’re city dwellers, others are students,” said Donna Westmoreland, COO of I.M.P., which operates Merriweather Post Pavilion. “They’ve had to scramble to find a way to get to Merriweather, but now it’s easy and they can just sit back and enjoy the ride, in addition to enjoying the show. Plus, this is green, and we love that.”
Pick-up points include locations throughout the Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia areas. Rock & Bus reservations can be made in advance online through Rock and Bus or by calling 1-855-725-5928. The service starts with the Incubus performance on Sunday, Sept. 11.And while we're on the subject, here's what remains in the MPP season: HFStival 2011, September 17, 2011; Fleet Foxes September 23, 2011; Jason Mraz September 24, 2011; Wilco September 25, 2011; Ray LaMontagne and The Pariah Dogs September 29, 2011; Sunday in the Country October 16, 2011.
