today's show is in a hockey arena, and the people who work here just told us we can watch the game from the stage where the band is playing, and thats literally right next to the boards. we all just got real excited.
after soundcheck, we took advantage of this sweet loading dock area and shot some band photos in there. real arty. good times.
tonight's game was the peoria rivermen vs. their arch rivals the san antonio rampage. oh, and in case you weren't aware, minor league hockey means one thing: fights. there were a lot of fights, and boy were they awesome. (note: we here at the daily foot do not condone fighting unless done in a supervised and regulated manner, such as a sweet action minor league hockey game.)
after the game, switchfoot took the stage and had probably one of their best shows of the tour. the crowd was around the stage 360 degrees and they were very close, so the bando guys definitely fed off the energy. it was super fun.
