Godsmack broke in the new Socorro Entertainment Center Friday night.

They were awesome!!!!!!!  I've seen Godsmack a number of times and they never disappoint!  Great live band and really cool people, Taproot tore it up as well!  I took a few winners back to meet Godsmack and after that; I had the opporunity to wander around the new venue a bit before the crowd was allowed in. 

The new S.E.C. is GREAT

It's roomy, the sound system is AWESOME (Godsmack said the SEC gear was better than theirs!!)  and several concession stands kept everyone from getting thirsty!

There's plenty of parking but ... just so you know ... get there early for the next show!!  The Socorro Entertainment Center is huge, but it does have its limit.  (It can accomodate around 12k now and The Tiguas are already working on enlarging it!!)   No matter what the capacity is expanded to though, once they hit it they still have to stop letting people in. By law!

I heard there were some complaints about that ... and I totally understand ... but when a show sells out, you can't get in.  When they reach capacity at SEC, it's just like a sell out. They can't let anymore in. It's the same thing so don't get angry .... just get there EARLY!! :)

(And keep it on The Q throughout the evening!  If they do have to start turning people away, we'll let you know!!)

For those of you that went Friday night; what did you think of the new place??  Let me know on The Q facebook page!  Give The Tiguas a little love to; this is a pretty kick ass thing they're doing for all the borderland rockers! 

For those that could not make it; here's some footage I found on youtube.  (Takes a bit to load up.  Not sure who posted it, but thank you!!)
