Hope Fest 2010, Spokane, WA - 06/23/10

Spokane, United States

So the first show of the summer happened to be close to home (at least for everyone else in the band). It was Hope Fest 2010 and it was a great cause! A group of 100 kids came up from Oregon to the Union Gospel Mission to minister to the local hurting and homeless population in Spakane. We heard some great testimonies, and were honored to share our message and rock-n-roll!

Here are some pics just from practice and our down time before we hit the road to Marietta, IL for Cornerstone! Check 'em out!

Cornerstone 2010, Bushnell, IL - 06/28/10 - 07/02/10

Bushnell, United States

One of the most amazing and brutal weeks of my entire musical career! We saw THOUSANDS of faces throughout the week! We teamed up with a RAD organization called Live Offensively (http://www.liveoffensively.com/lo/) who sponsored a tent for We As Human this year. The guys with Live Offensively were a BLAST! We were blessed to have an indoor, air conditioned place to sleep. I can't say so much for everyone else! Adam had a great idea to make a bed out of some of the conference chairs in our room.

The drive up was absolutely beautiful as we made the 30 hour treck across half of the US. Carrying 9,000+lbs of equipment in our trailor, we managed to pull into the Cornerstone 2010 grounds on Saturday evening. We took some time to scout out the camp and then headed out for some Hardy's burgers! Sunday it was all work as we set up our stage (one of 13 in the entire festival) called the Ammunition Room.

Cornerstone was packed with over 300 Christian artists ranging from folk to rock to hip-hop and everything inbetween! There were something like 13 generator stages (stages that ran off of small generators) and one main stage. We played every day on our stage and one day on the Texas Stage (check out video here -->http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBfYohd40U0). We drew some impressive crowds and even attracted the attention of Brian "Head" Welch (Whosoevers/formerly of Korn), Sonny Sandoval (Whosoevers/P.O.D.), and the guys from Skillet!

We hosted some FANTASTIC bands on our stage including Upon This Rock and Don't Wake Aislin!

I heard more Metal in one week than I've heard in my entire life! There were bands from all over the country and even groups from Mexico and Canada! So many fantastic networking opportunities and connections are made every year at Cornerstone.

By the end of the week, we were EXHAUSTED! Our equipment was covered in dirt and spit, our ears were throbbing, and we were all sore as we loaded up in the rig to head south. The week was truly an experience I will NEVER forget! We made new friends and ran into some old ones. It was a first for myself and for We As Human, but if I were to place a bet right now, it definitely will not be our last.

I was born in Austin, TX and spent my teenage up to my current years (early twenties) in Eastern New Mexico. I recently joined a band called We As Human. They're a rock band out of Northern Idaho/Washington area.
As the band travels and tours, so shall I blog! It's a great way for me...
