    Quite cool! And I've just missed Mark playing close to my country ehh, he was in Prague for example ;o I wish I'd have a chance to see a Spitalfield reunion show one day though

    I don't think I could bare another rookie of the year show. I went to see Ryan play solo and I was one of like four people there. It was super awkward and the setlist blew

    blast from the past. Remember Right Now and the way less known and loved album by Terminal "How The Lonely Keep" will always have a place in my heart. The line in Kill The Drama "you said that you were leaving I asked where we were going" has me sadly smiling to this day! I believe Mark Rose and Travis Bryant teamed up once for a show...I think. Or maybe I dreamt it.

    I might have to check this out. I haven't really listened to any of Mark Rose's solo stuff in quite a while, but I haven't been to a show at PJ's in a while either and would like to go.

    I'm very intrigued by this Kalkaska date.

  6. Mark Rose must be the most underrated songwriter of this scene, and I'm not even that much of a Spitalfield fan. His solo stuff blew me away, been a while since I checked it out

    Absolutely agreed that Mark Rose is so underrated, could've been at least half as big as Patrick Stump to be honest.

    This thread has caused me to discover that ROTY has a cover of Copeland's "Erase" on Spotify and....good arrangement, but can't get into the vocals.

    Loved The Goodnight Moon so much back in 2006 though.

    Yeah he kind of sounds like trace cyrus now with the whispered vocals

    Thanks for the info, checked it out, it's good cause the melodies in Erase are just perfect on their own!

    That's disappointing. I saw Rookie of the Year tour with Sherwood last year and they put on a good show. The only part that made me sad was Ryan in the audience selling cd's of The Goodnight Moon for "anything" because they needed "gas money." I gave him $10 for two copies and gave one to my friend (even though we both have Spotify).

    That is super awkward.

    Yeah it was. It's sad because the show was not particularly well-attended (at least, by my estimations), so I was already doing the mental math about how much money the bands were making and getting a bit down about it. That interaction just reaffirmed my suspicions.

    It's funny how, when you're younger, you don't even think about any of that stuff. Younger me would have gone, "Sweet, an intimate show!" Older me goes, "I hope they're making enough money from the venue..I doubt we'll be seeing these guys again in Dallas..."

    Yep...that has to be a huge part of what wears bands down. The fans that come are passionate and stoked to see the show, but if it isn't enough to keep gas in the tank, it's time for hard choices. The last time Lydia came to Birmingham, attendance was less than stellar. Doesn't help they came on a weeknight, but man, I wouldn't blame them for not coming back.
