San Antonio has become one of our favorite cities to play. Did you know that it's the 7th largest city in the US? Neither did I until a voice over the airport intercom told me. We've had some great shows and great memories, whether it be the Christmas tour with Jars of Clay a while back, or when we played the rodeo a couple years ago. Plus it's the home of Max Lucado, so it can't be all that bad :)
We flew in from Atlanta this morning.After getting our bags at the airport, we hightailed it to Lupe's Tortilla, one of the best Tex-Mex restaurants in the world. Let me tell you - they make a mean fajita.
Speaking of eat, we hosted an interesting little event before the show tonight called an "eat and greet". Basically you meet the band and then sit down to a nice meal. Food and Third Day sounds like a winning combination to me!
The show tonight was incredible. Sometimes these Thursday shows are tough because we're not quite back in the swing after a few days at home. Plus it's a weeknight so people are thinking about school and work the next day. It ended up being a great show and a great crowd tonight. Summit Christian Center has hosted us a couple times before, and it's just a great venue for a show. Mac has been struggling with his voice the last week or two, and this was the first night that it didn't really seem to bother him.
Trust in Jesus felt like a highlight tonight. It was a single on the Move album, and it feels like the more we play it live, the more people like it. We've placed it prominently in our set most nights this fall, and it has gone over really well. Kicking and Screaming is another fun one. We've moved it to the opening slot, and it has proven to be a great "lead off hitter".
Another amazing night in San Antonio. Here's hoping the rest of this run can match it!
