@ first time played without Shawn Camp
* seriously wicked scary serial killer version: "woodshed... hacksaw... blue tarp... three very hungry dogs..."
# Dave playing The Stump, his electric banjo
^ very different off-tempo intro; they'd been working on this on the bus in Missoula

This was only the second time Yonder had played Spokane (04-13-2007, almost a year earlier to the day), but this has quickly become one of my favorite venues because of the great soundsystem, the hard-working backstage staff, the fantastic lighting rig (Ted's lights were CRAZY-good!), and a beautiful room. When I first arrived to set up my recording gear, Hines yelled "THAT'S who we need!" and promptly asked me to exorcise the demonic influences that had been cast on the room the previous night by some Norwegian death-metal band so I yelled, "Satan, get the #$%^ out of here!" which got the crew laughing pretty hard. Hines also pointed out that all the pentagrams, 666's, and Devil Rules on the sidewalk outside had been done in cute pastel pink and blue chalk. [chuckle...]
The crowd showed up early and lots of old friends were meeting up on the spacious dance floor that never got horribly crowded; somehow people instinctively left room for others around them, although some of the space may have been created because they didn't allow drinks down on the dance floor. Jeff wasn't kidding when he said, "Do not miss the highly anticipated first 20 minutes of the show" because the POM > 2 Hits > Whiskey > 2 Hits > POM was a great way to kick things off and got everyone dancing all the way to the upper balconies! I met quite a few folks who were at their first-ever Yonder show, and that's ALWAYS cool -- great to have new folks coming to check out both the band and the Kinfolk Family. The other cool first set highlight was Ain't No Way Of Knowing, a Shawn Camp song they've only played once before (three years ago!) and never without Shawn; here's hoping this one is kept in regular rotation because it's a great song.
Setbreak: I can testify to the truth of the Mario Brothers banter because while Ben may be One Slick Bastard at the game, Adam is Wicked Awesome at effortlessly gaining levels. And you thought it was all wine, women, and song backstage... HA!
Second set highlights included New Deal Train (LOVE this song!), a sing-along Paul & Silas, and what has to be the scariest version of Follow Me Down To The Riverside I've ever heard -- seriously, was Jeff channeling John Wayne Gacy or what?! [shudder..] -- that went into a strong Girlfriend and finished up with the first of two Danny Barnes songs of the night, Funtime. The dancing continued in high gear all night long, and it was easy to spot Rod & Mary tearing it up at dfc, but also very cool to see Steve Littky dancing his butt off immediately to Rod's left. One guy (who I think I even remember from last year) weas holding up an Idaho-shaped request sign throughout the show, and I guess he finally worked his way up to the rail because you can hear first Adam and then Jeff say NO! before doing a double-tease of the intro to the song which I'm calling the "Ida-NO! teases." Dude, next year come to Missoula! Too Late Now > KY Mando > SGSC made for a solid 20-minute closing medley, then off for a few minutes of someone STILL screaming for Idaho [chuckle...] before we got a second Danny Barnes number to close out this night's Death Trip.
Then I started cracking up when Hines started the post-show music because clearly he was picking up on my earlier excorcism line -- where does that guy FIND these songs?! A good time was had by all but "get the #$%^ out of here!" Too funny.
ENJOY! And while you're at it, burn a copy and surprise someone with a nice gift at the next show you go to; just look for someone dancing their butt off, then slip up and hand it to them by saying, "You deserve this."

Much Love,
+ Pastor Tim (YonderArchive AT yahoo DOT com), April 20, 2008
