Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2017-12-29 - The Crescent Ballroom, Phoenix, AZ

After the shortest gap between shows for Arizona over the past year, the Nerds were ready for night one at The Crescent Ballroom. Between the band and the Onesie’s in attendance this was one HOT performance on a Friday night!

The energy was palpable as people began filing into one of my favorite hometown venues. The size of the room, sound, and staff make this one of the premier rooms in Phoenix. The drinks were flowing and the smiles were big as our favorite band took the stage!

Spafford opened the show with a premier cover of the Foo Fighters 1997 song

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2017-12-13 - Crescent Ballroom, Phoenix, AZ

Preface:

Although the room seemed to be less crowded than the night before, the energy at tonight’s sold out show was palpable. We were just coming off a heater of a Friday night show and among the many friends and fans that I’ve talked to, throughout the weekend, they found excitement in the fresh new faces seen throughout the weekend. It’s telling of Spafford’s current upward and high-flying trajectory.

From Day 1 this turned out to be one of my favorite festivals of all time. Caribbean beach destination. Check. All-inclusive resort. Check. Jam royalty in attendance. Check. F***king Spafford is playing a late night after a day of face melting from the classics? Cheeeeck!

This the second time now Spafford has essentially forced me to follow through with a dream run, (last year was Phish MSG for New Year’s). This time was even better. Albeit a completely different Spafford experience (especially for a festival).

The late-nights before Spafford were pretty epic: SunSquabi tearing up the ro...

This new years we're pleased to present the Inaugural Electro Funk Ball on New Years Eve. If you're coming to the New Years show join us in dressing in whatever funky, glowing, light up, electric, wild, nerdy, clothes you can find. The idea is to dress 'formally' in clothes from any period, but to add an electro funk touch. Don't be the only Nerd standing around in the corner with nobody to dance with. Get lit up and show your stuff. There will be prizes for best dressed and maybe even a chance to get some cool pictures taken.

We were somewhere around Sedona, on the edge of the mountains, when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like "I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive...." And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like ... wait a minute... That wasn't me... I read that in a book somewhere. Anyhoo...

We left the warm desert and headed up to the chilly mountains somewhere around midday. The drive to Flagstaff from the Valley is absolutely breathtaking. For a kid from NJ the only schemas that I have for the scenery are upstate NY and maybe eastern PA. But the truth is that neither holds a candle. The canyons are enormous, the hills roll on into an infinite horizon, and the air is crisp, c...
