And So I Watch You From Afar - Live At The Triple Rock

Got to The Triple Rock around 6:30 last night to set up. I ended up making 3 trips down the street to The Cedar. One to set up a recorder, one to start the recording and one to retrieve the recorder. Most of that was amass a sea of drunk 20 and 30 somethings yelling "Brrraaaiiins!" and feeling me up all night. The things we do to document live music yeah? I still managed to get the first 3 bands at The Triple Rock recorded. The venue staff did a top notch job of dealing with any unruly zombies. Envy's tour manager asked for their set to not be recorded which was totally fine. All of the Envy guys were super nice and has some of the best senses of humor I had encountered in some time. And So I Watch You From Afar was obviously my draw there and because the four band members and three crew were staying at the house I was in for the long haul regardless. Well, most everyone eventually ended up on the bus and here's hoping they didn't get a ticket for parking in the lot of the Church across the alley. Great people and great times that carried on into the early AM with birds chirping in South Minneapolis. A special thanks and much respect to Andy Coles, the front of house for ASIWYFA. Safe travels fellas. Something tells me you'll really enjoy the Northwest. We'll work on getting the full set online, likely with some soundboard in the mix but for now here's a track from last night's set. If you're into it you'd be wise to catch them before they're back across the pond. ASIWYFA's 2009 s/t LP and their 2010 The Letters EP can both be picked up through Smalltown America Records.
