Singing in the Rain

For those of you who couldn't make it to the shows 2 weeks ago and are wondering how they went: 

It was a day that didn't exactly go as planned.  We arrived at El Arbolito Park after a few glitches.  Due to said glitches, we arrived a bit later than we intended...and the sound check was still in progress!!  Apparently, there had been a power outage earlier, which prevented the soundcheck and the opening bands from starting on time.  We started playing around 2 PM (we were scheduled for 11 AM) and by then, it was starting to rain and I was hoping that there would be someone in the audience who liked us enough to brave the rain to see us.  We were told that due to the delay, we needed to cut our setlist short.  We were ok with that, since we still had another show later where we could play the full set. 

After a rather rough start, we played "The Awakening", "The Whisper", and "Songweaver" to a wet but apparently happy crowd.  None of us could feel our hands afterward and I probably would have been rethinking my "as much skin as possible without looking like a stripper" stance on stage clothes if I hadn't been enjoying the adrenaline rush that usually comes with having been onstage.  But we were excited about the turnout despite the rain, and even more so about being the headliner at Rock 'n' Bell in a few hours.

I decided to go home for a few hours to get warm, rest my voice, and make sure everything was ready for the night.  I was in the middle of putting together CD envelopes for the Continuum EP when I received a call from the organizer of Rpck 'n' Bell saying the show had been suspended.  Apparently, the person who was supposed to bring the tent to put over the stage to protect it from the rain hadn't come.  Rather than let the rain destroy thousands of dollars worth of equipment, those in charge believed it best to cancel the show.  There is a possibility that the show will be rescheduled, and if it is, I will most certainly post it here.

We also have some possibilities of other shows, so stay tuned!  I hope to post more soon!
