Atlantic Station Tennis
Yacht Rock played for a tennis tour event at Atlantic Station last night. Another tennis stadium? We played one in DC for the Fourth of July a few years ago and almost died from the heat (and lack of enthusiasm). This one wasn't nearly as bad.
We loaded in at 9:30, set up in a small tent perched in the corner of the stadium (kind of like a spot where ESPN would be set up to do their show in between matches). A couple of hours to set up and soundcheck and then we were off until the evening.
The match ended around 8:15 PM, and we hopped up on stage to play. Sort of like when we played the Hawks game, the crowd mostly didn't seem very enthusiastic about sitting there some more, so the stadium emptied out at a steady pace during our seventy-five minute set except for maybe a hundred and fifty people. That'd be my guess. Tough to say.
Not a bad, gig though. Sounded fine (Kip on sound), help loading gear in and out, and one set. Pretty good for a Wednesday.
We're headed out to the midwest this weekend. See us in Chicago Friday night, Indianapolis Saturday night, and Louisville Sunday night!
