Damn am I sad it's over already! What a great night! My husband just had surgery on his foot so he tried to stay out of the way and I ended up spending most of my time on the side stage. I'm trying to upload the video I took of Somewhere for Nothing which I thought was amazing live.

I got to watch a ton of guitar repair and it was like being back stage all night.

My favorite part of the night was, from my side stage view, at the end of the Sonic Highways episode they play Something for Nothing and Dave was backstage on the side, furiously practicing SFN along to the song playing at the end of the episode and I got a great shot of it, at least to me

Here's my side stage video, this was pretty much my position all night.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLmhj_D8AUg

I got an amazing 15 seconds of All my Life from this perspective.

They also pushed back SFN on the set list a few times it was supposed to be a lot earlier. When they finally did do it, seemed to be serious concentration and it was impressive.

Does anyone have a link to the show last night? The live feed is obviously gone.
I only saw the first hour( my computer was being ridic and I assumed the live feed was finished. -not that the band was ) and I wanted to see all of it of course.

The Premiere was unannounced and sold out. It wasn't publicized because they want not too many people to be there. The show I dunno when. It will happen if you build it and they come.

You don't have to say in the thread, but how did you guys get your DC premiere tickets? Because I have a friend in the area who is a 100% Foo fan but she hasn't heard a peep.

So the yellow Cubby poster had a reference to them changing their names again to play the gig - since nobody has mentioned it I assume that never actually happened?

The names of the band members were changed on the poster, that's what the line on the poster reference was.

OK thanks yeah that was obvious and I got that, I just figured it was possibly going to be more for these US club gigs (assuming they are going to do a full 8).

When I saw the "Billy the Kid" style poster I had a name scream out at me and I just wondered if they'd end up ticketing as the "Sonic Highwaymen".
