  1. Argh! And I just recently moved from Champaign! Definitely passing this along to several friends who are still there. Thanks for the head’s up!

  2. If only BJ made a trip to the Twin Cities! I’ve been dying to see his routine. Hope that some Tallyheads can give good dish!

  3. Man! What a stupid night for me to have planned my senior stupid cello recital (also at 7:30). He’s going to be performing right behind the building I’ll be in, at that time tonight. Arrrrrgh!

  4. Ah I cannot wait to see him tonight! So excited! It’s a good day to be an Illini student & die-hard Office fan!! :)

  5. It’s three hours south and I cannot leave here until after 6… For those who can attend, have a great time! I’m looking forward to a report from someone who was able to make it!

  6. What time should we get there? Does anyone have a projected turnout? I’m coming from Decatur just to see this and if it gets rained out and they are only taking the first 500 people inside…

  7. @7 – Taaalia, Good luck on your recital. Had to do a few myself there at Smith.

    Back to B.J., the rain is a definite concern. I’d show up a bit early to scope out a seat closeby if it’s still outside, and to better ensure a place amongst the 550 if it moves indoors.

  8. I won’t be able to attend tonight, which breaks my heart, but for those of you going, get there early! If the thunderstorms that are forecasted arrive and they move into the Illini Union Ballroom, be aware that they are very stringent about following the fire code at the Union and won’t allow one more person than the 550 capacity for that room.

  9. I would get there at least an hour early. There’s a huge buzz going around about BJ’s show. It would be great to have it on the Quad outdoors, but the forecast predicts rain about 90 minutes before he starts.

  10. B.J., if you read this, swing by the University of Chicago before leaving Illinois. Please?

  11. I live in the suburbs but am going to try to make it out there with some friends, also with my DM t-shirt!

  12. Tanster, thanks a million for posting this info!
    I just changed my plans for this weekend so I can go tonight!!!

  13. I can’t wait! Only two and a half more hours! How early is everyone going to get there? I don’t want to miss it if they only let the first 500 people in. T.T

  14. For those of you who are attending, one of my friends was in charge of setting this up and she just told me it’s been moved inside, so there will only be 550 people let in. Get there early!
