My Big Ass Show Adventures

Another Big Ass Show is in the history books, and I am thankful to everyone who attended. My day started out with a bit of a jolt when I heard that Brendan Urie of Panic! At The Disco was sick with malaria and wasn't going to be there. I have to give that band credit for making sure the show went on. They recruited a few friends to cover for him, including local musican Brogan Kelby, and  Ransom Wydner from King Niko. Brogan got to sing "The Ballad of Mona Lisa" and Ransom sang "Nine in the Afternoon." Thanks to everyone for staying to watch the performance even though Brendan wasn't there. Tyler Glenn (another local) from Neon Trees got to sing a few songs with them, and it turned out to be a special event. Brendan Urie is sad that he coulndn't attend, and the band will get back to Salt Lake in full force just as soon as possible. I was particularly thrilled to see Panic's bassist Dallon Weekes take over the lead vocals on a few songs and then treat us to an acoustic version of The Brobecks tune "Love At First Sight." 

Another special moment was Switchfoot's performance of "Dare You To Move" when Jon Foreman invited Brogan Kelby onstage to play his guitar and sing along. We had mentioned to the band how important that song was to Brogan and that it really helped him get through some rough times. They were thrilled about it and invited him to play it with them. What a great bunch of guys! The performance was truly amazing, and I've  posted a couple different camera angles (from fans) of the song.
