This band is awesome live!

To me, the true test of a band's talent is how they sound live.  Have you ever been to a concert, and the band sounded totally different than they did on their recordings?  I'm not talking about the band partying too much before the show, or having an "off-night" either!  I'm talking about the whole crowd asking each other, while the band is playing, "Is that really them?  Why don't they sound like they do on their CD's?"  (I know, I know!  Pick me, pick me!).  It's because they really don't sound like they do on their CD's!  (Thank you, Captain Obvious!).  With the number of effects available, the right person in the studio can make a screetch-owl with a sore throat, sound like a Grammy winner!     

March 26, Canyon Club, Dallas, TX

The day after I bought "Superkala,"  I heard that Course of Nature was coming to Dallas the following week.  They were playing a smaller venue, the Canyon Club, and a friend told me that there was not a bad seat in the house.  I already loved the CD, and knew I had to be there!  I convinced another friend to go with me by playing the CD for him, (and by buying his ticket!). 
My friend was right about the Canyon Club - there are no bad seats!  (I'm still kicking myself for not using a free pair of tickets to see Nickelback when they played there!!!).  We sat at the bar that surrounds the dance floor, for the opening bands - 21 Fits and ??????.  21 Fits is a local band - very cool, check them out!  I don't even remember the name of the second band, if that tells you anything!  The dance floor is right in front of the stage, so guess where we were when Course of Nature started playing?  We were on the dance floor!   (Thank you again, Captain Obvious!).   The show was awesome!  We were only six feet away from the stage, and the band sounded EXACTLY like their CD!!!  I was completely impressed!  There were a few technical problems, but they took it all in stride.  They talked to the crowd and kept the party going, while the tech figured it out.  When the problems were fixed and they started playing again, they sounded even better!  I danced my a*# off, and we had a great time!!!    

After the band finished playing, they hung out and signed autographs.  We got to meet the band, and they signed my CD!  They were very down-to-earth guys, and each one shook my hand and asked my name.  They said they had seen me dancing, and were glad that I was enjoying their music!  (Melt, melt, melt!).  It was really, really cool!  If you ever get the chance to see these guys live, don't even hesitate, just GO!        

Edgefest 11
June 1, Smirnoff Music Center, Dallas, TX

Course of Nature played at Edgefest 11, an annual music festival in Dallas, sponsored by 102.1 FM - KDGE, on June 1.  They sounded great!  CON played some of their best songs - "Caught in the Sun," "Wall of Shame,"  and "1000 Times."  We only had lawn seats (No bueno!), but my friend and I managed to score VIP passes, so we were right up front for most of their set!  I guess Mark Wilkerson remembered me from the show back in March, and when we walked up to the stage, he waved at me!!!  It was really cool!!!     They were only on stage for a short period of time and most of the crowd had no idea who they were, but they liked what they were hearing! 

The majority of the bands signed autographs after they played.  The autograph booth was sponsored by Wherehouse Music, who had CD's available for fans to purchase and have signed.  Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina the Teenage Witch) was with them, and was also signing autographs.
