This Saturday: Green Bay WI (Two Shows)
Mon., Nov. 21. 2005 10:59pm EST
This Saturday, November 26, we'll make our annual trip to the Cup O' Joy in Green Bay WI. Last year's two Thanksgiving Saturday concerts at the Cup went so well that we decided to try it again on the same weekend!
We've been playing at the Cup at least once a year since since our first appearance there September 11, 1999, and we've always gotten a tremendous turnout. The Cup is probably the largest and best-run Christian coffee house we've ever played. There's room for hundreds of people, and Jan O. and the rest of the staff there are terrific.
The crowds got so huge that we started playing two shows per night there in 2000. These will be our 12th and 13th concerts at the Cup, and it's the fourth year in a row that we've done them in November.
Last year, we released our "New & Used Hits: The Best of ApologetiX Vol. 1 & 2" CD at the Cup, kicking off our tour in support of that CD. We'll finish that tour 32 states, 102 concerts, and 364 days later at the same spot where it began. Boy, the set list has changed a lot since then!
Here's a checklist of all of our appearances at the Cup. If you've been to all of them you've been to more than everybody in the band except J., Karl, and Keith! Bill "Moose" Rieger's first show there was in 2001, and Jimmy Tanner will be filling in for him this time. Bill Hubauer's first wasn't until 2004.
