Falcons Game

We played the Atlanta Falcons pre-game today. By far our largest crowd, although not a crowd necessarily there to hear live music. The day started bright and early, actually it was still dark when I left the house.

We played two sets. The first set was pretty rough. Or at least it felt that way. We took the tunes a little fast. I must say having a cool wind blowing with the sun in your eyes isn't anywhere close to rehearsing or playing in a dark smoky club. Not to mention this show took place 12 hours before our usual sets.

Highlights of the set include a crowd pleasing When The Levee Breaks by Led Zeppelin. The only cover we played, but big outdoor shows like this the crowd seems to appreciate hearing music that is familiar. My guess is we played to 100-125 people that were near the stage and in the general vicinity there were probably 300-400 people walking around, tailgating and just having a good time.

Here was today's itinerary.

6:45am - wake up
7:25 - leave the house
7:50 - arrive at the gulch
8:00 - set up
9:00 - sound check
9:45 - first set
10:20 - break
11:00 - second set
11:45 - end set
12:15 - break down gear
1:00pm - return home

Here is a picture taken from behind the stage of my drums. Why, because I like it.
