This Past Weekend in PA, MI & OH
Wed., Jul. 14. 2010 12:22pm EDT
We had plenty going on this past weekend at our concerts in Wexford PA, Chesaning MI, and Thornville OH.
Friday's show included a full-band (all six members at once) live recording of our upcoming CD, Soundproof. Saturday's and Sunday's shows were both outdoors. Saturday's show was our 1250th overall (and our 49th in Michigan), and Sunday's was our fourth ever in Thornville (and our 106th in Ohio).
Here are some nice email comments we received from a fan at Friday's show:
I wanted to let you know I'm going thru ApologetiX withdraw, 3 shows in less than 5 weeks. Thanks again for letting me know early about the recording date. Special thanks to:
My boys and I enjoyed the show. On the long ride home we talked about many things concerning the show. Probably what we liked most was the change in pace of it. We can't wait for the CD to come out. We love the new t-shirts and wore them proudly on Saturday ... all to my wife's displeasure. She hates tie-dyes!
I think what I like most about you guys is that you share the Gospel message, you have fun doing it and you're real with your fans. Hopefully we'll see each other (for my 20th show) in the fall up in the Poconos. You and the band are in my prayers. Take care.
