Blue October in Salt Lake City

My favorite band, Blue October, was in Salt Lake on the 31st for a stop on their the quiet mind tour. The day started off with an acoustic show at The Living Planet Aquarium. The acoustic show was so cool!! It was hosted by a local radio station and there were only about 30 people there. After they performed three songs they took pictures with everyone that was there.  

After the acoustic show we headed to the venue for a meet and greet that we had purchased tickets for. I know two meet and greets seems a bit much but I didn't know about the aquarium one until a couple of days before it happened and I had purchased the other one already. 

The show started with A Silent Film. I saw them when the opened for The Parlotones this summer so I was really excited that they were opening for this tour. They were even better this time around- I'm sure that is because I am familiar with their music now.

The second band was Barcelona. I was unfamiliar with them but they were really good. They were in costume for most of the set but the lead singer finally had to take his raggedy andy wig off because of the heat. Sadly, I didn't get any good shots of them except this one.

Finally Blue October took the stage. They were phenomenal as always.
All of my pictures, including a copy of the set list, are here

Here's a crowd shot from the tour manager. I'm right on the rail, which is the perfect place to experience a Blue October show.
Can't wait until they come back!!
