Yet the parking lot was still quite empty. And the folks outside did not seem to want to rush inside to catch the short set. In fact, many folks were having a tailgate party. I felt like screaming out, “Hey everyone! Go inside and see Red! It’s worth it!”
Though I often look for new distant places to see Switchfoot play live, the cost of fuel (and concert tickets) kept me closer to home this year for the Music Builds tour. Wanting to add another state to my list, I choose the show near Cleveland, OH on a Thursday as part of a long weekend. Skipping the Friday VA Beach show in order to be a tourist in Ohio, I almost drove straight to the Holmdel, NJ show from Ohio, with only a short pit-stop at my house. Then, in an unplanned “you only live once” move, I drove down to the show in Northern, VA near Washington, DC on Sunday.
[img_assist|nid=761|title="Dr." Mark Lee at the Music Builds tour launch party|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=143|height=211]I am a Third Day fan. I am Gomer number 1920. (I would be a lower number if it were not for the fact that I am not a joiner.) I have traveled on a plane on more than one occasion to see the Atlanta rockers in concert, including a Great Gomer Gathering. I have purchased each CD on the day of release since Conspiracy No. 5.
