Raleigh NC, a big mixup with the venue on the day of show. But worth it tho, Gloria, No more do I, Hard rains a gonna fall, Next time you see me, I only saw NC, SC, and GA on the tail end of the '11 summer tour. I was impressed with the level of energy the band was bringing..the Simpsonville show is a really good example of not what they play, but how they play. Looks average from the outside yet the band was firing on all cylinders.
I did that run of shows too, plus the fla show. Simpsonville was the best by far, the band was seamless that night, the boys brought their good shit for one of their few ever stops in sc. The raleigh show for me on paper is real sweet but in reality it was very odd and not great for me. I saw a guy pass out and have to be carried out by ems, I saw a near fight because these people tried to make a freaking huge area for there two under ten year old kids sleep on the lawn during second set and tried to keep everyone way away from it, and maybe most of all I saw alot of people totally detached from the music. The first time me and friends ever left a furthur show and asked each other what the fuck did we just see, in a bad way. its funny how much the experience varies from individual to individual.
3/18/2011 at tower theater is pretty sweet. they pull out a rosemary and the second set is a boogie fest with a top notch eyes as well as a lot of other classic tunes.
