Last time we played the Norva, it was a highly improvised show; that is, we had a lot of equipment freak-out and break down. Hence, the initial show we had planned went out the window, but we did our best to have a good time. I remember not being too pleased at that show, namely because I thought we could have done better. Fortunately, this time around, we had a close to perfect show; nothing broke or crashed on us, and the set flowed smoothly, allowing us to vibe out on the music.
One notable occurrence during the show was when Darren decided to create some drama to "Reset" (as he usually does by pouring water all over his drums), but last night he tried to pour glitter instead; however, he failed to consider the intensity of his fan blowing next to him. As he opened the bag of glitter to pour, it blew everywhere, before the song started. It was a good idea, just not well executed.
We also had a great time hanging out with Rob (formerly of Mae). When Mute Math toured with Mae two years ago, it was a pivotal moment for our career. We told Rob how much we appreciated them taking us out, and how much that tour did for us. Out of all the Mae guys, I always had the most connection with Rob; we both went to law school, played soccer, and had a similar disposition. It was nice to see him again. Check out Rob's blog.
