Last week when Blue October was here in Salt Lake for the quiet mind tour one of our local radio stations, X96, hosted an acoustic show at The Living Planet Aquarium. I was extremely lucky and got tickets to the event. When I say lucky, I mean it, there were only about 30 people there. It was so cool!
Justin, Ryan and Julian performed three songs- Into the Ocean (so appropriate for an aquarium!) Hate Me and one of their new songs, Light You Up.
Into the Ocean (love the little backstage bit at the beginning of this)
After they performed they signed posters and took pictures with the group.
Here’s my friend Misty and me with the guys.
You can see all pictures from the performance here. You should also check out their pictures from the concert later that evening. You can see those here.
Huge thanks to Anthony and X96 for this amazing opportunity!!
This interview with Julian, Jeremy and Matt (and Avery! How cute is she?!?) is from right before the Not So Silent Night Concert in December but was just uploaded. In the interview the talk about performing close to home, what they like to listen to, the success of The Feel Again (Stay) in England, and much more.
Philidelphia’s Radio 104.5 selected a fan to ask Blue October 10 questions. Louie D was the lucky winner. (Random side note- I got to meet Louie and his wife when I was in NYC for the acoustic show. They are wonderful people! I love it when dedicated fans get to do stuff like this!!)
Louie sat down with Justin, Julian and Matt and they talked about the Pick Up the Phone tour, The American Coalition for Fathers and Children, being on their own record label, which song they would like to cover, writing songs and much more.
