The venue was a tiny bar called the Exit In, located on Vanderbilt's campus. My first concern was that the stage was not going to be large enough to handle Todd's cathedrals. I became very worried at the thought of having the cathedrals staying in the truck. As soon as I arrived I needed to resolve my concerns. The stage crew somehow found enough room for the complete set. Hat's off to them, for they did not have much extra room! The small stage limited Todd's maneuverability, however the band performed magnificently in spite of these constraints. The set list was the condensed version without Love Science, Unloved Children, and World Wide Epiphany.
Inside the bar, I noticed numerous plaques of bands that had previously performed there. (Allman Brothers, Talking Heads, B-52's, just to name a few) It is my hope that Todd's plaque is now accompanying them!
My old friendship with Dean has been once again revived as a result of Todd's music. Thanks Todd, Kasim, Jesse, Prairie, and John!
The Michigan gang awaits your show in Oshkosh this August. For as the crow flies, Oshkosh is very close to our home state, and we will be sailing across Lake Michigan to attend Waterfest!
Lastly, anyone who does not own the Liars CD or has not yet seen this tour, you owe yourself a treat to experience both. Todd is back, time to rejoice!!!!!!!!!!
