06.26.13 @ The Thompson House - First Stop Of The RocknRoll Vacation

As I travelled west for some Music Festivals and to see a favorite person in my world, I made a stop in the Cincinnati area for a couple of days. I arrived in time to catch a show at The Thompson House in Newport, KY featuring some bands with members who I am friends with. I unfortunately was a bit late so I did miss one group of friends but caught the end of the set of The Colour Of Amber. I missed the opportunity to get any video footage though. The rest of the bands I did film though and they are posted below.

This was the first time I've been to the Thompson House since the change in name & management. I'm not sure what I think of it now. I suppose it doesn't matter too much since I've moved on to Pittsburgh...

Corpus Christi


The Overseer


The Great Commission


Impending Doom


The next video I will likely complete & post will be from life in June leading up to this trip. My hope is I have the time over the next couple of days to edit & process it...life seems to be lacking a whole lot going on to get in the way.

RocknRoll Vacation...

After that last video went up about 2 weeks ago, I have been Midwest American traveling on what I called a RocknRoll vacation. Though it didn't all go as planned, overall this has been a great break from life.

I write this sitting at work on my first night back. The shift started just over an hour after I got back into town. Lots of video will be posted as soon as I can get to it. There are a few things I need to take care of in the real world which will delay the process some. What is to come includes footage from the new music festival known as Audiofeed. This was a real good time and expect the next one to be even better. It is the best thing for the former Cornerstone crowd. Hopefully with a little more time the word will spread for the next festival and pull in a few more folks. It was good as it was though. Also included is some clips from another fest called Kingdom Come, a trip to Chicago, and a show in Cincinnati.

Again, all this as well as "Life" clips will be posted very soon.

Also, thanks to all for the new "likes" over at the facebook page! Thanks also to Elphie for her help in spreading the word and her part in the coming videos!
