If you can only choose one of the midwest shows to go to over this glorious weekend (and we’re hoping you hit them all…on your way out to Red Rocks….), we’re suggesting that you hit up the Sumtur Amphitheater shows in Nebraska. Here’s three easy reasons why:
1) Sumtur Amphitheaters have a precedent of being AWESOME
- Just check out these previous sets!

2) Just look at this neato venue!
Most of this venue is generally EMPTY. You should be able to get good sight-lines or great dancing space.
Regardless…it’s gonna be a goooddd time.
3) Just look at this tweet:

Sure, the boys say this for everywhere and everything, but look at the previous “small” shows this year.
