10,000 Maniacs Recorded for WRFA

10,000 Maniacs did a private unplugged and electric concert at Jamestown Community College last night. This concert was sponsored by and will air on WRFA at some point. It also was videotaped for promotional use. Either way it's a pretty cool way to spend a Saturday evening. We're guessing that given all the other picture taking and recording by audience members that stuff will eventually show up on YouTube. The fun part of it all is that they had the audience on the stage of the Scharmann Theatre with the band, so it created a very intimate setting.

Matt and I sat at the back of the stage next to percussion. It was a really cool vantage point given that most of the time you can't see what's going on in the back.

The set list which was broken up into an acoustic set followed by an electric set. Covers included a fantastic rendition of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart," Bryan Ferry's "More Than This," and The Cure's "Just Like Heaven.":

Jeff Erickson on guitar.

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
