The Northrop is an impressive venue, able to seat and accommodate for nearly five thousand people. It has an old fashion theater-style setting (after all, it was built in 1929), but with the renovation completed earlier this year, the Northrop is fresh, polished, new, and modernized.
John Mark Nelson
Right before playing his new song "Dream Last Night", Nelson talked about his album Sings the Moon... and ultimately gave two albums to people sitting in the first row. During the rest of his set, he still took a little time to thank the audience for coming out and that he never took playing in front of people for granted. It's a message that I'm sure we'll see from Nelson again.
During his set finale, "Rain Comes Down", he suggested that people should stand up and dance... and they did. Many of the younger fans rushed to the front of the stage and danced off to the last song.
The students who showed up early to the show was given glow sticks and various "Back to School" product advertisements, so Bonar had to comment on how this was "the quietest ravers" she's ever seen.
Bonar switched guitars to acoustics (and had technical difficulties switching plugs before "Last War"), however for a block of songs "From A Cage" to "Ransom", Bonar played on the keyboard.
