The above quote was overheard in the men's restroom at the Castle Theatre during our show a couple of days ago opening for Hinder. We had already played, and when I introduced our song, "Come On Do You (Like Tears For Fears?)", which elicited one "No!", I didn't realize I might be planting alternate scenarios in the head of at least one Hinder fan in the audience. That aside, we had quite the experience playing that show. We performed a very concise set (exactly fitting the 30 minute time slot we were allotted), perhaps our tightest and highest energy of the year. Tim played the trombone on two songs, and we welcomed our friend Ryan up to play 2nd guitar on three songs. We sold some shirts and CDs, saw some friends, and got some great feedback from people that seemingly fall well outside of our target audience. Thanks to S.A.W. Events and Kickstand Productions for the opportunity to play.
Next up for us is a set at Firehouse Pizza on Saturday, August 24th with the great Arliss Nancy from Colorado. Details are in the shows section.
Additionally, four songs recorded at Earth Analog in Tolono, IL with Matt Talbott and Jeff Gregory are scheduled to be finished and mixed this upcoming Sunday. Look for an announcement on where those are headed shortly.
Last, enjoy what remains of the Summer season. This weather has been rather ridiculously comfortable! It's been great for writing songs in the dark by a fire. Yup, one of those bands!
