Madison, Wii

Whee.

The Uncle Fest Tour kicked off today. It was my first opportunity to watch This Providence, and it proved to be time well spent. They put on quite the live show, and they're a pleasure to hang with back stage. House Of Heroes and Ludo tore it up as always, and it was a very satisfying thing to confirm that we're on a tour with a bunch of amazing bands.

Our set had the anticipated "first show of tour" bugs, spiders, etc... But naturally, it was a rootin tootin good time. Three of our friends in the audience arrived in matching Pugsley stripes, and I kind of didn't get it at first. I thought they were horizontal referees.

We played a few songs for the first time, including Death Bed. Other than few flubs (some more key than others), we made our way through the 11 minute storyboard. Its definitely a fun one.

Ethan took a picture and taught it how to say one one hundredth of a thousand words.

Awesome! I really hope I can get to St. Louis on Oct 30. You guys are definitely tied with Switchfoot as my number one band. And if I can see you with Ludo (solidly in my top ten) that would rock for real.

O.K. that is so not fair -- Deathbed and This Providence?! Can you please do this same tour over here? I don't think my husband would appreciate me going further in debt to fly back east. LOL

Seriously, glad you finally got to see and meet This Providence. :)

I saw you in Des Moines last night. You guys sounded awesome and I really liked that you did Deathbed, especially because you did everything with the horns and switching out the piano players halfway through

erin said...
