Slewfoot Another winner last night at The Mann! The boys kept things going from the night before in fine fashion. The two shows are completely different styles and both worked very well. The energy of the AC/DC - Free combo was off the charts topped only by the Character Zero with Trey running around the stage like a mad rockstar (I hope they release the video of that) while I can't recall hearing a louder crowd at that moment. Lots of other highlights including an intense Stash and amazing It's Ice which was so nice to hear and was the one song my buddy and I really wanted.

BUT I learned something at this show though. Something I already knew, but it really dug in last night. For the second set we got down to 10th row front and center. From that perspective, it's easy to put yourself right there on stage in the band's shoes and feel the waves of energy they must feel every night at any moment. You can see how even the more mundane songs such as Bouncin and The Line likely still sound incredible to the guys playing it. By playing what they want, they are keeping themselves, and therefore us, engaged in the shows which is really what we want. As long as they are happy then I'm happy. Keep up the good work, guys.
