The show Wednesday night was so incredible! 21 song set list, including one song that was played for the very first time. My cousin kat and I arrived at the Troubadour around 4:30 to beat the much dreaded L.A traffic. We stood in line for a bit and saw everyone pull up in separate cars, each band member waving and smiling at us as they drove by. Mikel came out during sound check and we talked for a bit before he had to go back in to finish up. The new record is hopefully going to come out this August/Sept followed by some possible touring… maybe. He said that as soon as he got back into town last month that everyone has been doing their own thing and that he tried but 48hrs later locked himself in his room and started writing song after song. That is so amazing, I think.
