One of the best Christmas gifts I got this year was from my daughter Amy. She surprised me with tickets to the first stop on the new The Fray / Mute Math concert tour at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Loved it!
So, last night myself, Amy and two of her friends headed off to “cheese country”. The show started at 7:00 pm and since the seating was “first come” we arrived about 5:30 pm and stood outside in line for good seats. Unfortunately it was about 20 degrees outside. And unfortunately one of the girls I was with did not have a coat (so guess who ended up without a coat in 20 degree weather?). And unfortunately they did not open the doors till 6:20. I seriously thought I was going to freeze to death!?!
When we finally got in it was definitely worth the wait! It was a great concert. The Fray were phenomenal. They did all their best stuff and the crowd was totally into it. If they are in the area, you should check them out – great band. However, I have to say that Mute Math was over the top awesome! Check out this video of Mute Math from the concert at Carthage College – HERE. My buddy, Sean Bublitz told me they were his favorite band and that when he saw them at the Park West recently it was the best concert that he had ever been to. Now I know why! The energy coming from that stage was just frenetic! The lead was dancing on top of his keyboard and flying all over the place. The drummer was even more intense. He had his earphones duck taped to his head so they wouldn’t come flying off. He did a drum solo that included everything on the stage that he could possibly hit. I could go on, but let me just say – they are fun to watch! And the music was great too. Mute Math – super creative, great music and high energy.
If you want to see a clip of Mute Math from the concert we were at, you can check it out HERE. Sean also as a great link from YouTube that gives you a little more Mute Math that you can check out HERE.
