#99 Bootleg Theater on 4-25-13

We arrived early to load in, so as not to interrupt the play that was happening in the actual theater next door. I had actually been excited in anticipation of this show, which rarely happens. Damien and I fraternized with Ben Grey of Dear Boy, who kept being dragged into conversation despite his attempts to rest his voice. Soft Swells opened, and by Dear Boy’s set the place was packed. We opted to not use our glorious sign, as it lit the stage to almost daylight. An unidentified bass error resulted in an extended mix of Best Summer Ever, complete with an improvised ass dance by Wayne, Francis and Steve. We played two new songs, “Watch Yr Back” and “Ledger’s in the Red.”
