Lovers and Liars/Thriving Ivory Show

This show was one of our favs from 2010.

We had just played a sold out show in Atlanta, GA where Big Boi from Outkast wound up rapping with one of the bands on the bill (quite surreal...all I could think was "This is the guy that sang on "Ms. Jackson!"), so we were feeling good about things. Our next show was gonna be with a FANTASTIC band that we loved playing with called Thriving Ivory. Check out one of their tunes below...

We had driven all day to Little Rock, Arkansas, gotten there a bit late, and rushed to set up...no sound check...which is always a stressful event, especially when you carry 243 different instruments, like we've been known to do.

It was half an hour til the first band started (we were the second of 3 bands) and there were about 50 people in the club...a bit depressing, especially since we had driven such a ways. I had to run out to the van to grab a shirt, and when I stepped out of the door and looked to my right...the line wrapped around the block! Apparently they just hadn't opened the doors yet (The top photo is a pic of the line).

Nothing better than an eager crowd to get the blood flowing, especially when you've been thinking it was gonna be a lackluster event.

It was a sold out show...the club was PACKED!

We took the stage and you could just feel the energy running through the place...really an amazing thing when you get a great crowd. We were absolutely blown away by the response...one of the funnest shows I've ever had the privilege to be a part of. I still can't put my finger on exactly why, but the energy was simply through the roof.

Again, no footage of us, just the other groups and some pre and post show mingling. Cheers.
