Keystone. 20 June 2009. Summer Solstice at the GOAT.

We played our longest show ever on Saturday. I could not think of a more appropriate time and place to kick off summer. The longest day of the year inspired us to perform 4 sets for Summit County locals Ellie and Dustie's wedding reception held at Keystone's GOAT Soup and Whiskey.

A fantastic time was had by all. This is our home stage where we performed last new year's eve and recorded tracks for our new CD. Oh and there was that time I beat that guy over the head with my guitar, but that's a story for another day. Saturday's celebration was a very joyous and peaceful occasion. It was wonderful to spend the day playing music and hanging out with so many local friends. If there's one venue that we will miss as we tromp through the midwest and south this summer, it will certainly be the GOAT.
