I actually was finishing up hockey practice on the other side of the JACC, and was able to just walk over to the show after practice. Afterwards, we met the band making their way to the bus, which is where our team parked their cars
This was a make up show, due to a tragedy in Stefan's family. The crowd had been anticipating the show for a few months, so there was a lot of energy. The highlight was Dave doing Christmas song solo, especially since all the students were getting ready to go back home for Christmas break.
Dave was fighting a cold and the band would discuss things between songs, seemingly to decide what his voice could handle. Lots of long jams. Dancing Nancies (full band) was E2.
Awesome night. Stayed the night at st. Mary's with friends! Sneaky kinda night!!
