Good news comes in twos (2-year anniversary wrap up)

Last night can not be explained. It was incredible. Many of our friends from Texas up in the front, our friends from Boston holding it down as the seasoned vets. Two years -- whoa.

Playing 16 songs wears you out. Now I know how real bands feel every night, eh? It's easy in practice, but when you're putting your all into a show, man, it can wear you out fast. Maybe I'm just out of shape. I need to start jogging again...

There are so many people to thank, I can't even name them all. Of course, everyone who came, everyone who played, and the Middle East and Miller Lite for making it happen. But special thanks to Julie and Alex for running cameras, Jen and Andy for recording the show, Emeen and Andrew for acting as psuedo stage hands, Chris for helping organize, Kevin McDevitt for running merch without being asked and doing it honestly, and of course, Kier for his banjo and MC skills, MK for being MK, Ward for his golden voice, Jeff and Colin for shredding, and Siv and Sara for playing those sweet strings. What an unforgettable night!

SET LIST: She's A Bright Light / It's Gonna Be Alright / You'll Be Crying Soon / Trouble From The Start / Like Secrets Beneath (w/ MK Fabila) / Still Untitled Tune / Research Blvd (w/ Kier Byrnes) / Set Free (w/ Siv Lie and Sara Birnbaum) / Ambivalent Farewells (w/ MK Fabila) / On The Lam / Loose Lips / Shotgun Wedding / The Nadir / Debts / Carolyn, Don't Leave Like This (w/ Colin Toomey, Ward Hayden, John Stump, Kier Byrnes, MK Fabila, Jeff Katz, and probably more that I couldn't see) -- ENCORE: Shine A Light

Anyway, as they say, good news comes in twos. We just got a big show July 31 at the Paradise Rock Club opening for none other than Kings of Leon! It's a free show that you win your way into, so hopefully we can try to get some tickets!

But thanks thank you thanks and thank you for last night. It was amazing.

i have not heard or watched anything, but as far as pictures are concerned, it's awfully tough to get quality shots and hold a camera while simultaneously being a dance champion. there were many dance champions that night, thus not so many photographers.

in the video, you can see camera lights going off. thus, pictures must exist. thats my reasoning...

haha, i believe you. i actually recall seeing picture flashes myself, i guess i was just justifying why i did not take any pictures even though i had a camera with me all night long. plus i thought the term "dance champion" sounded fun, so i had to find a way to throw it in there.
