There was a slight hitch in the get-along on Friday for the Rooftop Concert. We still had it, just not on the roof.
After a giant down-pour and the very likely possibility of more rain, we scrambled for the best way to salvage the show. It was determined that we’d move it to Velour, a small club that holds 300 people. The band agreed to play two shows, back to back, in an effort to accommodate as many people as possible.
So, we did the best we could, and in the end, everyone that saw the show had a fantastic time. It went a little something like this:
There was still hope at this point.
Cjane Kendrick always looks lovely.
Tyler Glenn and a stuffed mountain goat of some kind, at Velour.
The crowd from the first show. Can you spot Natalie Norton in there?
Our fine Mayor, John Curtis. We love the mayor.
Scott Vance (above) from The New Electric Sound. His band will play the September show, opening for Ryan Innes.
Libbie Linton. Her band, Mideau, plays the August show at the Rooftop.
Paul Jacobsen and Ryan Tanner
Stu Maxfiled from the band Fictionist.
Tyler Glenn from Neon Trees
Cristal Ramirez from The Blue Aces
Pat Campbell, Brian Hardy, Aaron Anderson, Scott Wiley
Kiki Beuhner and Marie Brandshow from the Hollering Pines
Well, would you look at that. James Valentine from Maroon 5 showed up to sneak in a guitar solo.
So, that was round one. And then at 11pm, we had another show.
Dylan Schorer, Branden Campbell, Mark Smith
Ryan Innes. He’ll headline our September show.
Branden Campbell from Neon Trees played bass and did some pointing.
Everyone came out at the end and sang “We are the world”. Just kidding. They sang “You can’t always get what you want”.
Thanks to Velour for saving the day. And thanks to Paul Jacobsen for putting this group of musicians together.
Scheduled to open the show was Brady Parks band, The National Parks. We’re sorry we had to bump him from the lineup when we moved to Velour, but we’ll fit him in on the October show.
