The Gateway Corridor, Port Angeles, WA - 5/4/10

Port Angeles, United States

Show number two on the books for the "new and improved" We As Human and MAN was it a COLD one! Unfortunately, we didn't have all of the help that we had at the Panida (GREAT group of helpers by the way! Such a blessing!), so we spent the entire afternoon setting up in the FREEZING cold and rain. We did however meet a few interesting characters throughout the day. The pavilion that we played at was right next to the bus station, so all day long we had people walking past our set to catch their bus. Justin C. (Vocals) and Dave (Bass) had a couple encounters with some dudes who were anything but shy. Just a word to the wise, DON'T ask Dave if you can play his bass! We were, however, able to glean a good amount of knowledge from one particular gentleman who informed us that the sun is a large hydrogen bomb that is continually self refueling. This same gentleman plays every type of music everyday on his 4, 5, and 6 string basses, and a good guitar tone is attainable through a tree, a building, a light post, and a good 4x12 cab (all at once of course). =0)

Port Angeles is neighbors with Sequim, WA (like "Squid" with an "m" instead of a "d") which is the hometown of our very own lead guitarist Justin Forshaw. He really stole the show too I might add! The guys fingers (yes even when freezing cold) are BLAZING FAST!!! He has quite a fanbase in his hometown.

At the end of the day, it was a GREAT show with some GREAT kids! And of course we brought it!

The show was put on by a local church (thanks Ed!) and there were games followed by the concert. Our new friend Bo was a great help and even hung out with us afterwords at the Kokopelli Grill!

Those guys were great for sponsoring us with a free meal after the show! I hope to make it back to P.A. soon! It was SOOOOOO stinkin' pretty!

Also, a HUGE thanks goes out to Justin F.'s friend George for giving us a place to stay for a couple nights. Such a huge blessing!

Calvary Chapel Youth Room, Spokane, WA - 5/5/10

Spokane, United States

Back to back with Port Angeles, this show OFF THE HOOK! We had some AMAZING pizza which was cooked FRESH in the brick oven just for the youth and bands! We had a blast, and the fans were GREAT!!! There was a great team of people helping out and sponsoring the event.

The group ahead of us were just a great group of dudes called The Avenue. They came PACKING some sweet equipment and instruments.

We were thrilled to play inside again after the previous show in Port Angeles in the cold. I'm sure the van was happy to get a nice little break from the 7 hour drive we endured to get to Spokane!

They had a SWEET green room that allowed us ample space to relax, pray, and enjoy some great snacks. Steve even munched on some peanut m&m's (my favorite) which totally could have gotten him in trouble (he's on weight watchers!). So I took a pic as photographic evidence!

Overall, it was a great show and we were honored to rock some faces and they seemed to be happy to have us!
