The show on September 25th at the Winneshiek County Fairgrounds in Decorah, IA for Per Capita Entertainment‘s “Recession Fest 2010” was a little bit different environment–but a success nonetheless. The event was plagued by poor weather and a lack of coalition-building, grassroots-style promotion, but sure enough–come 9:30pm on Saturday night–Rearview Mirror had the most respectable and enthusiastic crowd of the weekend packed close to the stage. They gave one heck of an honorable performance despite the frosty nighttime temperatures. I imagine they felt less than stellar the next morning, however they certainly could rest easy knowing they left it all on the stage. Check out a partial video (sorry) of Blown Out’s Hold Your Eyes below.
So, good job guys. You still got it. Here’s to the next RVM reunion show–in 2011?!?!
