David Cook - WXLO Music Loft - Green Hills Golf Club 6.7.2011
The radio station had told me to arrive by 5:30, as the performance was at 6, so when I arrived and parked around 5:15, there was already a pretty good line. Instead of being inside, which I expected, it was outside on their deck, overlooking the golf course. Different, but ok. (I found out later that the Loft itself isn't air conditioned, and it would not have been a good situation to have the event there when it was about 90 out.) When they initially let us in, I was legitimately standing about 2 feet from the stage. I think over the course of a little while, people realized how close we all were to the stage, so some tables were quickly brought over to create a barrier of sorts, which was awkward while we were all standing there but once it got straightened out it was fine. It was still intimate, and there were maybe only....50-60 people there for the performance.
All in all, it was a great time. A bit more rushed then the other loft performances I've been to, but still fun. I'm hoping that with this radio promotion that David's doing up here that I don't think he did much of when his first album dropped that we'll get some tour dates in this area. And perhaps WXLO will have him in their music loft again.
