The CD release Show
Wow, what a night. Sorry no one had written about it yet, but I think we were all a little blown away by it and needed time for it to sink in. I feel like we say this alot, but it probably was our best show ever.
The venue turned out to be awesome. Hurray for the Palk Basement, man we need to do more concerts there. It was so cool how many people turned out, just a great vibe all night long as the crowd supported and listened to all of the bands, not just us. I personally am a big fan of One Win Choice, so seeing other people react to the was awesome. And Harsh Reaction did a great job too.
David Watts was a magician with the sound. I could tell during One Win Choice's set that I was going to have a fun night because you could hear the vocals. From the very beginning of the show I had a blast, things were just working out, you could tell the crowd knew and appreciated the music, and we represented all of the songs well. Thanks thanks thanks!
From the admissions, it looks like we had over 100 people in that little basement, which is pretty cool for a Sunday night. We sold 30 CDs which exceeded our expectations (especially since many already bought it beforehand).
If anyone has any pictures or video of the night, please please send them to me!
I'll end this with an email I got about the show:
I had to run at the end of the last song (almost missed my favorite song!) so I didn't really get a chance to tell you guys anything. I've never seen an entire concert of yours so far, but I can say with utmost confidence that this is the best show I've ever seen you play :)
Seriously - it was really great. You guys are very talented. And I really do love your music. I told Drew that in the middle of the two songs you strung together - I think it was As Much into Falling Behind (another of my favorites) that I momentarily lost my ability to be cool at a concert. I love your build ups and they deserve dancing I must say. So I was just trying to be cool and bob my head like the good ex-80's heavy metal man I am . . . but at one point in the transition I lost control. I actually started jumping and punching my fist in the air . . . then out of a desperate attempt to regain some composure I settled into three really hard claps (off beat by the way) until I finally got some control again. Needless to say, I really liked it and wished we could have all danced like with such abandon :)
So I wanted to let you guys know that you did a really good job and it was really fun. Also I must say one more thing. Ambrose and Stop the Bleeding: Great. Jas, you had me fighting tears on the first song! I never knew who that song was about - very moving. All in all, a great concert. Glad I could make it!

I couldn't have had a better time on Sunday. Of the 3.2 Look Machine sets I've seen this was definitely the best. I can't get over how great the new cd sounds and looks. Congrats again!

it was an awesome night! it was so great to have so many people all crammed together and loving your music. The best thing was that the people present were fans of the music. It was a taste of what fame could be like for the look machine. It was definitely my favorite look machine show yet.

The great thing about your voice Jason is that it cuts really nicely and is easy to mix. Thanks for the compliment though. You guys sounded amazing, definitely the best I've heard. You guys need to convince Ian to solve his low freq. feedback problem. That was really stressing me out haha. Oh, and thanks for the gas/loadup money.
