But finally, finally! Two Arizona dates in the fall of 2009. I knew I had to go to both. I drove to Tucson on a Monday night to see them at the Rialto, a great venue that I hadn't yet visited. I knew the vibe would be completely different the next night at the Mesa Arts center, which is also a beautiful venue, but all seated, more suited for a performance of a play. A little stifling for a band.
I remember the experience very well, but instead of trying to write it all again, I'll share an email that I wrote to friends that same week. The only thing better than two nights in a row would've been the Hollywood cemetery show that I would've literally have died to be at.
