This was our first time playing at Velour and we were very satisfied. If you haven't been to the venue yet, find a show that looks good (VelourLive.com) and check the place out-- great atmosphere, great lights, great sound.
The crowd seemed to be a mix of normal kids and ska kids. We love all crowds, but you have to wonder if the ska kids see a band with horns setting up and expect some good ol' 2-tone ska or something, then get pissed off when we play rock instead. From what I could see--not much... bright lights--everyone was having a good time and moving around, and that = a good show (unless Ryan breaks strings on both of his guitars, Jeph's wireless freaks out, Kevin's bass drum slides, or Palmer gets hit in the face-- none of which happened at this show).
I played a little solo on Abby Normal's song "Harry Potter Dream." It was fun. A couple months ago, Palmer and I recorded some horn parts for a couple of their songs... which one day they might let us hear ;-)
Special thanks to everyone who helps us out by taking photos!
