This Past Weekend in KY & AR
Mon., May. 17. 2010 12:15pm EDT

This past weekend's concerts in La Center KY and Conway AR gave us an idea for a new parody of an old Doors song. Remember "Riders on the Storm"? Try "Spiders on the Floor." You'll see why in a minute.

According to another old song about spiders, there once was one that went up a water spout. Depending on where you learned that song, the aforementioned arachnid was either "itsy bitsy," "incy wincy," "eensy weensy," or "teensy weensy." Unless you learned it in Conway AR. Based on our observations before and after Saturday's concert, they only have very large spiders there.

While setting up the CD table, J. noticed a big spider on the floor and commented on its size. The concert's security guard, an enormous bearded biker named Tim, promptly and drastically reduced the size of the spider by crushing it under his size-17 boot.

Soon J. saw another such spider and asked if all Arkansas arachnids were so sizable. He was told that those spiders were small compared to others in the area. "What are the other ones" he quipped. "Tarantulas?"

Yep.

To prove a point, one of our courteous concertgoers caught one in a cup after the concert and brought it to the band.

Thanks.

Ironically, we saw that big furry spider and his friends at a concert coordinated by a man whose last name is pronounced "pet us." To be fair, Keith was wearing a Spiderman cap during the concert, so maybe we were indirectly asking for it.

Thankfully, the spiders didn't scare away the crowds at either concert. We played to packed houses and enthusiastic audiences both nights. Here's what our concert coordinators had to say:

It was so great to have you here. The way you guys gave everyone individual attention afterwards was awesome. People came from all over the state and as far away as Louisiana.

One family heard it announced on K-Love Radio at 5:15 p.m., Google-Mapped our location and got there right before we started. A testimony to advertising. Thanks again. May the Lord bless you & keep you, may His face shine upon you. Be blessed in all you do. And everywhere you go.

Thanks so much. Can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed your visit and the concert. People are still calling and telling us how much they enjoyed it. Everywhere we go, people stop us and talk to us about the night. You definitely 'rocked' Ballard County! (in a good way!) Personally, I enjoyed the chance to get to know you and the guys better.

Here's a nice email we received later from our opening band in La Center:
Just wanted to say thanks again for allowing us to open for you. Our region was blessed and I know an ear that needed to hear ... heard a message through song and testimony. It was a pleasure to get to talk to each of you and feel and see the sincerity of your hearts.
