I have had the pleasure of going to two great concerts this past month. U2 with Miranda was a couple of weeks ago and then I saw Mutemath this past weekend with some friends. It was a whole different kind of show and I knew Miranda would have hated it. She loves Mutemath – she just doesn’t like standing for 4 hours straight and without being able to move. This was another concert that was on my Bucket List too. (One more to cross off) Anyway, here’s the story in pics.
We got our tickets and stood in line to get in beginning around 7pm. I went with some friends from our church praise band – Josh, Melissa, Katie, Tiffany, & Tim and also got to see some old Tomball friends there Andrew, Brook, Rebecca, Jonathon, Tyler, Neil, Martha, Joey, & Tim. I also had a stranger approach me and ask if I was “Steve Corn.” It ended up being John Michael Betik who was a youth who came to “The Wave” years ago. He recognized me but knew that I wouldn’t recognize him ’cause he’s changed so much over the years. Anyway, it was a cool thing to hear how God used that time once again.
Another pic from when we were in line. Not sure how I feel about the other bands who were gonna play on the following nights, but it was nice to see Mutemath on the marquee. (At least I knew we were in the right place.) By the way, they sold out that night.
These live shots really don’t capture it all very well. Mutemath is a great live band. They can definitely put on a show. There were lots of really creative moments – they had connected drum triggers up to some small lamps which made for a fun light show/drum solo. At one point they also used a projector to light up drum heads vertically as they were being played. The drummer stood on top of one of his toms as it was being held by the audience above their heads and then did a “Nestea” plunge onto the crowd. The sound was great. With everything they did in the studio, they were also able to really pull it off live too. Anyway, it was great.
The only downside to the evening was that we drove out of our way to go to Jason’s Deli and after paying $5 to park, we discovered they were closed. Ended up eating Popeye’s. . . oh well, it’s not the food I was hoping to remember anyway.
