The Taste of Amherst happens every year in the town common of Amherst, Massachusetts. It's a food festival in which one can walk from booth to booth and purchase small samples of foods from local restaurants. There are also some games for kids and the usual outdoor small-town festival kinds of things.
Yesterday, School for the Dead played a concert at the Taste. We played at 3:00 on a Sunday afternoon. We were the last act to take the stage in the four-day-long event.
It was about a million degrees outside and there were a few dark clouds hanging out threatening us all day. Our last two outdoor shows that we had scheduled were canceled due to weather so we were starting to feel a little cursed. But the rain kept up, meaning it never came down, and the place remained dry and sunny/cloudy. We lucked out.
We were hired for this show by WRSI (the River) and they were quite hospitable. We played an hour long set and it was just really great fun. Tony played with us. It seems like it had been a while.
Here's a picture that Max took while we were setting up.
