I just registered and I'm excited about having a new way to interact with other fans. It just hasn't been the same since SoundPost closed down. I'm hoping to reconnect with some old SPers and hopefully make some new "internet friends" too.
So how about the new album? It rocks, right? I saw BG three days ago in Charlotte, NC at Carowinds and had a blast. My friend Angie and I made the road trip together, saw Vota, Superchick (whom I also love), BG, and Skillet (who, as usual, put on a fantastic, highly visual show. And whoa! A string section! Awesome.), and got a hotel that night. It rained almost all day and we were soaked by the end. Possibly one of the best shows I've ever been to.
I also now have a BG autographed poster to hang up in my newly painted practice/art room.
I'm going to see them again in October at LifeFest in Cary, right down the road. I'm a little weirded out by the fact that LifeFest is being organized by Deep South, a local bar and production company known locally for its support of cheesey cover bands and half-naked calendar girls, as well as putting on Downtown Live every month in the summer. Wouldn't have pegged them for a Christian rock show, but I'm not complaining.
Over and out.
