Great day! Got to sit side stage to watch the show! Really awesome to see all that goes on behind the scenes!
*Due to technical issues, "Hit Me Like A Bomb" was not recorded.
We have many awesome memories of performing at Lifest. We shared the stage with groups like Allstar United back in the late '90's, and most recently performed with Tenth Avenue North a couple of years ago. So we were excited to get back tonight.
For a little while, we weren't sure if we were going to make it. Today's travel was interesting to say the least. We were scheduled to perform tonight at 7 PM. At about 5:00 we were still sitting at the gate in Atlanta. Due to some unforeseen weather and then some mechanical issues, our flight got delayed for several hours.
Thankfully, we made it. We even had a few minutes to spare. Our set was at that time where it was still light as we took the stage, with it getting darker as the show progressed. It felt like the crowd got more into it as our performance went on. It made for a different experience for us. In a good way.
Summer festivals are fun because we get to see many of our friends in other bands. TonightToby Mac played right after us, and they totally killed it. It was fun standing to the side of the stage and watching Toby and Diverse City pump up the crowd like nobody else can.
A highlight of our Lifest experience this year was performing a special late night acoustic worship set. It was in a side tent, and we expected maybe a couple hundred people. Instead, we were met by a packed tent with several people standing around outside. We did a bunch of older songs like Your Love Oh Lord and You Are So Good to Me that we haven't done in years. And the crowd really seemed to enjoy it. It was the perfect way to end the evening.
So our stay in Wisconsin was a little shorter than we had planned, but it was incredible.OK I gotta run - I'm currently capping off the night by watching Sharknado on the bus. Epic.
