Wow, that's all I can say. My band is from Allentown, PA - so this show was about two hours from home for us. We were opening for Dark Empire, who largely hail from this area of New Jersey - I'd played at Dingbatz before, but hadn't been back in a long time. The show was just fantastic. The turnout was really good, the crowd was enthusiastic, and our performance was tight. All of our friends in the area came out (doing 20 people just for us, 2 hours from home for us was pretty awesome), and everything just ran as smoothly as possible. The people at the club really liked us and we're going to try to work it out to come back in the near future. Awesome show.

Sadly we forgot our own camera at home that actually takes great quality video, with which we were going to record the whole set, but a friend did us a favor and recorded Children of the Sea. The sound quality is pretty awful, but hey, it's at least proof that it happened.

Actually here's MUCH better quality video of Children of the Sea:

Harris (keyboards/12-string) says thanks for the props and he thinks your vocalist is awesome. :D
