Anberlin: Acoustic at the Myspace Tent Cricket Wireless Amphitheater - Chula Vista, CA 8/14/2008

Looking like Kid Rock: Stephen Christian

I walked up to the Anberlin tent at Warped Tour and saw the sign for their acoustic performance at the Myspace tent. Curious to hear them acoustic (I have a weakness for acoustic performances) I wanted to head over to hear it. I asked the guy who worked at the tent where the Myspace tent was. He said he didn’t know. He continued, “It’s a big tent you can’t miss it!”  We walked down the next aisle, and there it was, in a huge tent like the guy had said.

We waited and waited in the tent for Anberlin to come out. Granted we arrived at the tent early because we found it fast. The DJ in the Myspace tent had the PA attached to his iPod. Unfortunately for some in the audience, he broke out into Celine Dion, Vanessa Carlton, Jesse McCarthy, and of course he topped it off with N’Sync. The most surprising thing is that there were many girls in the tent singing at the top of their lungs to the songs. Finally Anberlin arrived. We only stayed for a few songs because the tent was packed and it was very, very hot in there with no air movement.
